Moving On

Model?  Check!  Paint?  Check!  Extremely sugary drink?  Check!  Absolute Classic Rock on the main PC?  Check!

Yes, your eyes aren’t deceiving you but I’m actually painting again 🙂

It's not much, but it's a start

It’s not much, but it’s a start

I started this quite some time ago but, as regular readers will know, so many things go in the way.  Especially lately.

It’s now been just over a month since Dad died and I’m so glad that I’m now in a place healthy enough to start painting again.  Originally I wanted to finish my Heldrake as it’s so damned close to being finished but I really need to get my eye back in and what better practice than a project like this?

I probably won’t get this all the way finished that quickly as I really want to get stuck into more pressing half-finished projects however I reckon if I aim to do at least a couple of panels a day it’ll be done in no time.

That’s the theory, anyway…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Definitely something.

Well, it’s built.

I won’t be able to completely paint it for this weekend’ game however I should be able to make it presentable enough then worry about the details next week.

Ruined… something

Now that my squad of Chaos Cultists is almost complete I decided to try and get a new piece of terrain completed for the game next Saturday. I may have bitten off a bit more than I can chew…

It’s only about half-built but all the other pieces have been clipped and tidied so I have a tiny chance of having it ready.

Manufactorum – WIP 1

Not bad for a couple of hours. As well as four Manufactorum sprues worth of walls, I also used some plasticard to block the open windows and a spare Modular Movement tray for the roof.

I also left a couple of gaps to enable walkways to be attached later to link this to future buildings. You can also see some gargoyles which will help support them when they’re in place.

All that’s left to do is base it, I have some MDF that I’ll cut to size this evening, and then it’s on to the painting.

And so it begins…

After a gap of at least two years, I’m finally getting more scenery built. I picked up an Imperial Sector box ages ago (when it was considerably cheaper!) but never really got round to doing anything with it. I also picked up a few other IS sprues on eBay along the way.

This evening I’m going to try to build a whole manufactorum. Not a big one, more a tool shop than a Titan assembly facility.

This is the first completely new project since moving to the new house in December. I’ll stop pissing about now and get on with it 😉

Construction Time

That’s my weekend sorted!

I bought this with money from eBay sales over two years ago and have added a few extra sprues since then but until now I’ve not had the time to really get started on it.

Hopefully I’ll have some work in progress pics to show soon.

Modular Trenches for 40K?

I have to admit that despite devouring the Chaos Codex I missed this. According to this article on Bell of Lost Souls, a picture in the codex shows some forthcoming battlefield terrain.

I really hope this is true since my many attempts to make decent looking modular trenches has met with little success. Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
