Today I had some time to continue my Ferrus Manus on his bike.
First I attached the shield and then I got into a hard and hazardous process : making the cape with green stuff.
That's what I got. I tried to fold it and give the impression of speed.
I hope that once painted it will look cool. Wait and see! :)
Here are some pictures.
What do you guys think?
I'm going to post a mini tutorial explaining how I did it so you can save some time and efforts trying to do something similar.

Here are some pictures of my Ferrus Manus on Bike project.
(You can find the first post here)
I attached the power axe and I'm currently testing the global position of the model. I want it to be rather dynamic, so I test several positions with some patafix.
I used a lightly modified Chaos Space Marine bike because I liked the "Harley Davidson look"...
Next steps :
- The shield
- The head
- and..... the cape! (this one will be difficult I think ;)
So come back soon for more pictures!

It's been several days since my last post cause I had a lot of work.
However, I still had a little time to start my two bike squads.
I've mounted two bike boxes and I have to start another one an a chaos bike for my Ferrus Manus project (more info here).
At the top of the post you can see the Sergeant I customized with a cloak that was meant to be a captain (original post here).
And here's the oroginal sergeant included into the box. I cut the leg to change its angle to obtain a different position. I used some green stuff to stick it and to cast the shoulder pads.
Here's the result :
More to come!

I'm currently working on 2 bike squads for my army, and I want them to be troop choices, so I need a Captain on bike.
Like I told you in one of my last posts, I did a first version of a sergeant but I felt that my army would need a cooler captain ;)
So I've decided to try to do Ferrus Manus himself on a bike.
I want it to be quite impressive so I'll equip him with a power axe and a storm shield, and I'll try to do a cool cloak out of green stuff, larger than this on the previous model.
I'll post some pictures of the progress as and when, so check back!

To remain within the same line as my last posts, here are some more minis from my Iron Hands army.
These are my snipers scouts. In fact I bought them even before reading the codex... they were so cool ;) Well, they wound on a 4+, so I think there must be some situations where they are useful... what do you think?
I was looking for a nice camo pattern for the cloaks. I tried some rounded shapes but these angular ones appeared to be nicer and easier to paint. I'm pretty proud of the result.
Take a look at the cloaks and the clothes :
Maybe you noticed that these minis don't have the icons of the army.
On one hand I don't know how to place them... and on the other I think "Hey! They must prove themselves before having this honour!" ;)
