Artemis scale Powerfists?
« on: August 22, 2010, 02:24:21 PM »
two questions,

1) besides Tyrus' Powerfist, are there any premade hands that might do the job? (left or right hand doesnt matter)

2) anyone have a good set of instructions on how they made their own or perhaps know of a self made version here on the conclave?

Many thanks :)

I belive it says 54mm scale, but naturally not heroic. An interesting find tho... lots of extras and a good base for a sister of battle that model... $39.99 thats about 25 atm. The fists are the right size, each being about 1cm across, they might look slightly out of place but no more so than anyother powerfist look alike. Oh how i wish i had more money :P

Do you mean the Venerable Dreadnought? it has a power-fist styled combat weapon, as well as the more traditional dread style.
I'm not 100% sure just how much bulkier these are than Artemis' regular hands though... possibly not very.

This guys hand




is just green stuff with cut down swords placed in it for the fingers, I think if you went for a neater look and replaced the sword with maybe 'gaunt legss or something for a gauntleted hand it might work well.

if your not bothered with having to add an extra finger the new space marine venerable dread comes with a great powerfist with fingers although it is missing one but it might be about the right scale not that i've tried its just an idea.

I'm actually working on a space marine power fist at the moment. I've used plati-card, and green stuff to build up the arm below the elbow, and just need to start working on the fingures. I'll try and get a picture up of what i've done so far once i figure out this new camera.

sweet.

My top tip for modeling Space Marine arms is to go to your local coral or argos and steal some pens. Once covered in a layer of green stuff to add details they are the perfect size, and already have a hole down the middle for pinning. All you have to do is trim to the right lengh
