    Back pack is half done...AND @Oveur WE need a crhristmas event. [​IMG]
    A Visit From Logan Grimnar

    'Twas the night before Solstice, when all 'cross the front

    Not a soldier was stirring, not even a grunt;

    Spent store-crates were stacked 'neath the light of the moon

    With the hope that The Emp'ror would send supplies soon

    The troopers were hunkered down, snug in their bunks

    All dreaming of orks blown to meaty, wet chunks

    And the captain and I had just knelt for a prayer

    In the hopes the next battle might some of us spare

    When out past our trench there arose such a sound

    I grabbed for my gun and jumped up with a bound

    Away to the peep-hole I rushed with a jolt

    jumped up on the fire-step and chambered a bolt.

    The fires on the wreckage strewn 'cross no-man's land

    Lit up the night sky for as far as it spanned.

    When what do my wondering eyes fast resolve

    But an ancient grav-sled, drawn by great Thunderwolves.

    With a hulking old driver, white haired with a scar,

    I knew in a flash: it was Logan Grimnar!

    More rapid than las-bolts his war-beasts they came,

    And he roared and he cursed and he called them by name:

    "Now Tyrnak, now Fenrir, now Mjollnir and Jotun"

    "On Gungnir, on Frostfang, on Uller and Wotun".

    "Bring death to the xenos! Bring blood to this night!"

    "Now charge, now ride on - we will put them to flight!"

    Like an avalanche set by a century's snow-fall,

    They crashed into the ork camp and broke through them all.

    Firing wrist-mounted bolters as onwards he flew,

    scatt'ring orks like shell casings - so many they slew!

    Like lightning they struck, the whole camp was aflame,

    Breaking through they rushed on, 'til to our lines they came.

    I lost sight for a sec, then as I looked around

    Right into our trench leapt Grimnar with a bound.

    He was dress'd all in fur, from his head to his toes

    And his wolf-pelts were red from the blood of his foes.

    The trenchboards shook as he stalked down the track

    And he looked like a wolf on the hunt with his pack.

    His eyes - deep inside, there a twinkle I saw

    T'was a bloodlust so fierce that I fell back in awe

    The Old Wolf's grizzled mouth flickered as he drew near

    The trace of a smile - I had no need to fear

    Though he loomed like a nightmare from old soldiers myths

    It was not death like that which he brought out forthwith

    From beneath his great cloak he withdrew a large sack.

    Which he opened at once - I was taken aback

    There were bolters and lasguns and meltas and more

    I had never seen such a collection before

    From the seemingly bottomless sack he pulled out

    Enough weapons to put a whole army to route

    He spoke not a word but went straight to his work

    Fill'd all the supply crates, then turn'd with a jerk

    And laying a finger aside his great nose

    He gave me a nod and then from the trench rose

    Then he sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a howl

    And away they all flew; hunters back on the prowl

    And that was the last seen by this commissar

    Of the wonderous force known as Logan Grimnar

    But I did hear him roar, ere he drove out of sight —

    HAPPY SOLSTICE TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD FIGHT!

    Merry Christmas Everyone! and happy holidays! ill update more when i return from out of town!

  8. Excellent work, man. I have all the supplies necessary to do something like this, foam mats included. My problem is that I get cold feet about a project before I even start, and end up worrying whether or not I'll waste loads of foam and other materials / adhesives. Needless to say, this gives me some encouragement for future use of my stockpile.

    Hey I know the feeling of cold feet. Just make sure you get good templates. and pick what your end goal will be and stick to the idea, I got torn between black templars and ultramarines, and still have the anxiety of "am I making a bad choice." But really you have to take that first jump, step what ever it may be. I recommend you make the chest first, it gives you an idea that your scale is correct and its a very easy piece then go from the bottom up, to get a feel for your foam and stuff, the boots and legs are forgiving, and big areas and it gives you a good feeling of accomplishment and momentum. the helmet is actually one of the most difficult parts and when its done you will run around in boxers with pieces of pointed foam shaped like swords screaming "FOR THE EMPEROR!!" or "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!" or what ever your favorite bark is at the poor terrified dog and cat and get nothing done for a few days :p

    hot glue for the hot glue god!

    Blisters within blisters without.

    fuck hot glue....



    Edit after the fact:
    that desire to make a Black Templar is back DX I blame this tribute...
