    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    So, couldn't sleep last night... I spent several hours late last night/early this morning, whichever way you wish to slice it, pushing on with Deathclaw... I always feel that when a model gets to the stage Deathclaw is at, taking photos somewhat ruins the final reveal photos, below are some...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    Yeah It's those gaps that bug me, all magnets are flush so I don't get why there's gaps. The shoulder pad on the storm shield arm doesn't quite go as far round to the back as it should, because the shield is in the way. I'm sure I had it sitting better than in the photo though. I swear it...

    Hmmm. The more I look at the arms, the more they look wrong. Perhaps I might remove the magnets and just go with the Space Hulk loadout.

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    Been too hot in my part of the UK today for me to concentrate on painting, but as I didn't have much else to do this afternoon I decided to build something... My magnetised Deathwing Strikemaster - Configured like Belial - Configured for Space Hulk, for some reason the rules for Terminator...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    Yeah, I don't know, I wanted to replicate that fur look, where when you get up close you can see there's a bit of a diffusion between colours. Still, they turned out OK so I'm leaving them. I think I got lucky on the orange, originally I was going to go with GW's recommendation of Trollslayer...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    I'm back to sleeping at night now, how long that'll last I don't know, but I'm getting tired in the afternoon, and it gets warmer/more humid, so I'm doing some model stuff in the mornings... Every photo I took this morning is out of focus! Grrrr! I spent about an hour doing the tiger stripes...

    I'm. Trying. To. Get. Deathclaw. Painted! I sat down for about 20 minutes this afternoon, and that was all I could stand, it's a bit too humid where I am in the UK today. I didn't intend to do much anyway, just undercoat Deathclaw in black (Vallejo Game Air black) and finish up the rim of...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    So, I am in a building mood at the moment... I made a start on Deathclaw yesterday evening, and did a little fettling this morning, mostly to get to a stage where I can start painting the tiger body half, but also faffing around with getting the wings installed in a removable nature... I also...

    What's on your mind?

    Responsibility runs both ways. Scalpers/"investors" don't have to do what they do, and they don't have to be "entitled ding dongs". Not all scalper/"investor" problems are down to companies doing limited runs on purpose, Elegoo have had problems with supply of their 3D printers, and as soon as...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    Thou shalt not paint when tired... So, I've been suffering with insomnia, again, and in an attempt to stay awake today I decided to push on with the Empire Great Cannon and crew for an hour or two this Saturday morning... The cannon itself has had shading and highlights applied, although you...

    What's on your mind?

    Indeed. There seems to be a growing trend of a significant minority of people who think toys are an investment. Get it with Lego these days. Keep getting videos recommended on youtube, featuring ignorant, arrogant, spivs telling you what Lego sets they think people should buy up en-masse as...

    GorkaMorka Papercraft vehicles...

    Very nice, congratulations on the award. I remember the Rick Priestley deodorant bottle vehicle in White Dwarf. Also the titan built from parts of a Star Wars AT-ST toy. Brilliant times, long forgotten by so many.

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    Yeah I think it was meant to be an inn, there is an inn sign on the magazine page of "extras". More like Ogre ground floor, Dwarf/Halfling first floor. By my maths the ground floor, going by the outside walls, in reality, would be 10ft tall! The first floor would be 4ft tall, with the attic...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    Yeah, anyone inside would have plenty of head room when on the ground floor, but have to walk in a stoop, unless they're a dwarf or halfling, when on the first floor. :LOL:

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    So, I think it's fairly obvious that I enjoy GW's product from a time long forgotten by many... Carrying on with my 90s nostalgia, when I started doing research for building my Fantasy Inn back in 2020, I rediscovered an issue of White Dwarf, issue #155 from November 1992. White Dwarf #155...

    Yeah, that recipe is courtesy of Vince Ventruella. Been using it for a while now, first used it on the Grave Guard a few pages back. It does have a downside in that it's very very thin and tends to run everywhere...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    ...so, continuing on from the previous post... After I had finished applying the labels to the boxes and having given them a Windsor and Newton Satin Varnish layer by airbrush, which hasn't really turned out all that satin, I made a start on the Empire Great Cannon and crew. The crew and the...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    I think it's safe to say that it's been hot in the UK this past few days... Anyhow, as I've not been sleeping at night, and as it's cooled off a little, in comparison to the last two days, I tried to sit at the table and do some model related stuff. Ended up sitting downstairs for about 4...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    Sometimes I hate archeopainting, but I do like looking through old issue of White Dwarf from the early 1990s, which is when I started collecting them... So, I've been doing a bit of research re. the Great Cannon crew, mostly looking for painted references, so that I know what I'm painting and...

    What I've been doing recently, a painting and modelling log...

    So, what I've bought time... It's been some while since I did anything for my burgeoning Empire army (of an Empire Captain, 7 mounted Knights and Kurt Helborg), Feb 8th to be precise, so as the Steel Legion army is nearly complete (I just need 2 Sentinels and a Scions squad) I felt that I...
