Cheers mate. Hope this next instalment will not disappoint. Not a huge update really, just the vending machines are done and the last two corner fence sections. Oh, plus a little building made from actual Games Workshop stuff!!! I had some fun with photo's though :D











I like this one:D

Love your Nuka distributor :)

And the "tropical" trashed one is great too. Very good general aspect.

If I haven't said it before already, I say now; this is some fantastic stuff here. I know that 54mm gives the opportunity for much more detail that 28mm but geez your work on these scenery pieces is out of this world.
love the level of realistic touches you've given interspersed with the humorous touches like the posters. fine work all round...

Thanks chaps! Glad you like the pics (Helps motivation :D). 54mm certainly gives more possibilities for conversions that's for sure. It's easier but at the same time harder. Easier because parts are bigger but harder because things are more noticeable!!

Some 'almost done' pics of Banus. Just some finishing touches like finishing some freehand work and maybe adding some heraldry to his right knee pad (scared of ruining that yellow though :S). I also have some censer balls and the like to add to his belt. Still deciding about them though.

Disclaimer: Pics/Colours aren't great due to lighting issues. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :P









I'll hopefully get him done this week before/after work.  ;D

Yep, the treatment of the yellow is really nicely done. Maybe lacking some orange touch on the left shoulder pad to fitt the rest of the body.

Could we have a better pict showing the right shoulder pad ?

Cheers guys.

The pictures were taken with not the greatest light so the yellow came out looking a bit flat. Hopefully you'll approve of the yellow a bit more now?

I still might add some bits later but for now at least he's finished. On to the next project I guess :D

Very impressed with the armour damage - how many stages does it take to achieve that?

Thanks chaps.

The armour damage? You mean the silver chips? Not as many as you'd think. The first stage was to do a base of the second last highlight of main colour, in this case the yellow. Then I painted the 'chip' with dark brown before adding a dark silver for the chipped metal. Lastly I highlighted it with a bright silver on the edges/centre of the scratch.

Did that make sense?  :o

It does - I was trying it for the first time on some of the new Blood Bowl 2016 figures which is why I asked - I had tried doing a dark grey then dull metal as a simple edge chip.

So.... did it work? (pics or it doesn't count)

Ok chaps, no pics so far. I'm just brain storming. If you were a black legionary on some nefarious mission. What weapons would you have? I kinda like the idea of two swords. But maybe two pistols (although I was saving the Gunfighter for an Aplha Legionary). Or maybe just a Bolter, Pistol and Chainsword? Oh, and what Mark of armour?

I don't want something that will take ages to build (like a power maul). So, Ideas?

I for one think that a pair of chainswords are sure to look appropriately nasty!

a holstered bolt pistol would also make sense...

Love the painted marine, the face is amazing and yellow is always a bit tricky to get right. It's this kind of irresponsible display that makes me reach towards all my neglected 28mm sprues.... you monster!

I quite like the idea of the Alpha Legion chap going all John Woo with  pair of pistols.
