    It’s not much progress as could only do 30 mins or so yesterday as I was taking little one camping and star gazing. I will try and get a group shot of my progress on the blood rage set as well. Just got to find some snow for the bases, maybe look at the GW stuff valhallan blizzard or whatever they call it. Anyone used it?

    I have done some more to my tank, its progressed through several stages although there is not a lot to show for the amount of work behind the scenes.

    I’ve painted in all the cabling and tool details, hit the model with a coat of future floor polish (cheap gloss varnish), added decals (probably not historically correct, I just used what looks nice from the set included), re glossed with future to protect everything then started with an enamel pin was and some enamel grime streaking.

    Only problem with enamels is they take a while to dry, so adding the dried mud and dirt will have to wait to later in the week.

    I also painted the tracks, and I don’t know about everyone else but I am never too sure what colour to paint tracks, usually going for a mix of a dark brown/black with a bit of metallic mixed in. However I just found some Mig Ammo paints and they have a specific track colour so I’ve tried that. Its called dark tracks, and I really like the effect.

    Test model progress shots.
    Going to add some battle damage when the whole squad is done and the Luna wolves transfer on the right shoulder as well.
    Hopefully doing justice to a classic model that started a lot of plastic addiction to the older generations among us.

    I have turned to my First Strike box to keep my hobbying going. I really enjoyed this guy and should do the remaining 2 Reivers in the same way.

    @tchrin haha thank you! I as shocked to see the spillage, its normally something I see posed from time to time, caught me off guard! Could have been much worse! I must say your work on Kairos’ wings looks awesome! I have never been a big Tzeentch fan (Im a Space Wolf) but that model is very impressive!

    Todays work for me!

    They are named Samson and Goliath and perhaps would be better fitting if they were yellow (and cranes) but I had to name them after some thing so iconic to my homeland! Samson is the Knight on the left of the photo, hes the main one I have done for this hobby night live weekend, although Goliath has received some touch ups and a new missile system on top…

    For those who dont know about Samson and Goliath aside from the Biblical sense …

    When looking in the Imperial Knight boxed set I found some ruined buildings, so thats next on my list so that I can call this project closed!

    @azrael1990 those minis look super! I really like the colours used . Awesome.

    @joerugby Wow those Ultramarines look sweet!!! Is that the pop goes the monkey Ultramarine badge on them?

    Got a group shot of my blood rage monsters so far. My painting certainly seems to be improving as I go along.

    As well I managed to finish my mk1 storage solution for all painted miniatures. Mk2 will probably involve magnets though. But full kickstarter contents in one box, result, plus all the counters are in removable boxes! Foamcore and pva are your friends! :)

    I have been working a bit more on the Romans, they are now ready to go onto their base;

    On the AoS side of things I have mostly been working with terrain. Been airbrushing the basecoat plus some selected colours for two crypts (from Garden of Morr) and the Ophidian Archway.

    @ghostdog Love the beakie, always makes me feel nostalgic :-)

    @milmaa it’s ok you’re a worshipper of the corpse god, we’ll teach you the error of your ways and show you enlightenment, one way or another! And thanks, the wings are the one bit I’m entirely happy with so far!

    Quick progress update…will be my last for a few days because of work stuff. I’ve finished the beaks and feet. I’ve spent ages trying to do…something with the staff but I’m not at all happy with how it’s come out. I was going for weird/esoteric, but I’ve just made it look a mess, so I’m going to rebase and start again on that. But that’s ok, it’s fun to try something out. Finally I’ve just based out the boney bits ready for some TLC when I next get a chance for more hobby (prob not until Thursday…how will I cope!)

    So, 1 day later and I have my first squad of 5 almost ready. Tomorrow will be squad markings and chapter symbols.

    Closer shot of the regular marines:

    And of course the sergeant:

    Finished the infantry I’ve started on Friday as well and made some minor changes to the PzIV:

    I am on my final leg of painting these British Union of Fascists with just the weapons to finish off and then the basing. I am chuffed with them.

  • Avatar Image caledor2227p said 6 months, 1 week ago:

    I have been busy painting on the skin of the Mûmakil and this is the result.

    I hope that I will find some time to continue but I have to do models for somebody else too.
