It's been a bit, but I'm still working away on the Hoplite bust. It's very close to finished now. But, I've also went back to the Chaos Space Marine, I started building and painting the base. So here I'll show what's been done to both figures. Final pics for both should come soon, then it's time to start a new project that will have way too much intricate freehand detail, my first 75mm figure. Stay tuned.

Now for the marine...
The idea was a piece of ground torn from the earth with tormented souls and demons escaping from the pit below. And since the marine is from the Emperor's Children, what better place to defile than something owned by the Iron Hands.
