Thanks for info :) that makes me even more inclined to try out resin. Happy to hear you dont need to vacuum it to get good results :)

It is a case of trial and error to be honest. My first attempts were pretty piss poor but each failed cast is just a learning curve. Each failure shows you where an air bubble can get caught so you can but a vent in or something to release the trapped air.

Also putting a few drops of resin into each mould half and poking it into all the details helps no end. Once I've done that I'll half fill one side of the mould with resin and then close it up and seal it. Then slowly pour in the rest of the resin.

Something that I don't show in that tutorial is that I have some bits of sturdy plastic around the mould. Otherwise the elastic bands can warp the mould a little.

I have a friend who does mould making like that and yes, dabbing it into the details first can make all the difference.

Mutant Pit slave is done.






The pictures didn't come out great for some reason. The yellow on the Power cable looks pretty flat but hey-hum!

I added a barcode on his chest as I want him to be a test subject for a mad magos biologist. :D

The barcode and the fluid in the tank are great!

Cheers mate :) I haven't really ever done fluid canisters before. I was going to just do it Red but decided to be brave for a change!


Well, because I can't decide on which ship I want my flagship to be I went ahead and magnetised it. Everything. Even the prow so I can switch between torpedoes and Sensors. although this doesn't really help me decide on what I actually want it at least stops me from having to break things off every time I change my mind!

Here's the bits I have magnetised...



So, do I want an executor? (If only Imperials could have them! :()



An Avenger?



An Exorcist?

I just noticed how good the hazard stripes are, possibly the best I've ever seen, good job!

Ta very much!

Ok. Well, whilst sifting the interwebs looking for inspiration for an 'assassin' I fell upon this picture...



So! This lady is going to be my new Inquisitor. Her cover is an Imperial Bounty Hunter/Assassin for Hire. This is my take on the artwork... Kinda finished but Kinda not. I still need to finish the pouches. Other than though though! She's done. If you're curious, her head started off as a knackered Sevora head.

Back to Gothic for the moment as I realised the deadline for GothicComp was almost up! Here's some 'almost done' pics of the Dreadnought. Not much needs finishing, just the metal on the engines and a name plate on the base. What are your thoughts about doing gold around the weapon ports for the Weapon Batteries?






Had to do a little repair work today as I dropped the f'er!

Just a small brush and a steady hand! I'm not happy with it in all honesty with you so May go back and re-do it!

prows are similar to Mechanicus vessels, and I'm doing some cut/paste to make additional BFGs merchant ships

I like the painting job on the prew. Nice vessel, really. You should keep it as is.

Alchemy. I saw those, they're really cool and on my list of 'will get'. I just haven't gotten round to getting them yet!

Thanks Marell :)

Ok, so the Dreadnought is DONE!

You'll never see this but I know it's there.....
