Blowing up

Crazy Ivan got a bit of a colorbomb last night. He really needs to lay of the smokes.

Final details

Added a few patches of moss and a bit of dead grass, and though really subtle I think it works quite well.

Terrain prototype

Think I got my terrain prototype down. I only forgot that I wanted to add a few bits of dead grass and mold on the base and building. At first that would not be really appropriate for an Industrial Gothic sector, but as I constantly see how grasses are taking over as soon as buildings or areas are left unused, I think it will fit in and look good too.

Sandstone or not?

Decided to paint the building in sandstone to avoid a completely grey battlefield. Does it work?

Crazy Ivan

Needed a new theme, and since I really like all kinds of conversions, I decided to see if I could make a batch of Void Pirates.
First up is Crazy Ivan, Void Pirate Demoequilibrist and Hull Breacher.

Scenery basing

After the warping incident I set out to test a few, clearly more succesful, ways of basing terrain.
Since I only had foamboard, I decided to try out, what seemed to a general consensus of several pieces of advice I received, and simply paint both sides of the board. Only had 3 mm left, but I figured tat would be the ultimate test then. So before anything else I painted the foamboard with just a thing layer of a cheap artshop black acrylic paint.
By suggestion I had gotten some foamex - or foamalux, as it was called at my local signmaker's. Quite easy to cut, and not bendy once it's cut down to small bits like this one.
Both then had a bit of details added, and then a mix of filler, black paint and various sized of gravel.

They have now dried over night and look mom - NO WARPING!!!

Storage tank

Just before the game the other night I had a bit of time to finish off the storage tank for my manufactorum. After it was painted to look dirty I gave the velding lines a brownish wash added some dark brown spots and painted metal bits rusted. Then using a Vallejo rust wash added stripes of rust running down the sides, emphasized the brown spots and underside of the velding lines. The I added some vallejo liquid mask and painted the omega logo in that area. After the red paint was dry I carefully removed the mask with a finger and it yielded a pretty cool chipped appearance.

Gamenight last night and we had our first game using the Inquisimunda-ish rules, we thought they were actually working quite well, only had a few minor adjustments. Ammoroll, were harsh but that might have been down to some unlucky dicing. What's your experience with that rule?
Had two fighter dead though - something of a blow this early to a warband.
We were lucky enough to get our new MDF terrain in the mail just before the game, and had time to put most of it together. What a treat, very easy put together and very playable - from TT Combat.

Need I say more............
Finished the last level of the Manufactorum instead, adding some color to it all and finishing off with a few details.

The Disciple Finished

Ready to spread the word of Emperor and some lead to the endless hordes of heretics.

Big terrain project in the pipeline

Yesterday, while waiting for some paint to dry, I opened an old box - you know one of those project that somehow got sidetracked - to see what it would actually look like once put together. Well it's bloody huge isn't it? Honestly didn't see that one coming. Makes me happy though. Actually I think it's playable as it is, and I'm going to have a blast 40K-ing this up.
