Today is a productive day!

A mate I have known since high school with asked me to paint these couple bloodbowl models he still had. He sold or lost the rest...
I thought it'd be more fun to make a diorama rather than just paint the models, seeing as they won't likely be played with.
First time I've done something quite like this, a good experiment for future display projects.

So I have a couple boxes of necro tiles which gives me almost a 3x3 which is usually my preferred game size.
I could buy another box (my local has one) but it's a bit excessive when I only need one.
So I just printed a tile.

I'm thinking to make a toxic sludge pool type of thing.
I have some dodgy resin, so I'll do a pour and see what happens...

I know the orange one has done quite a bit of this, any advice on what to use for formwork etc to keep resin where I want it @ClockworkOrange ?

I just saw an ad for a pliable box for woodworkers that use resin. It has 3 or 4 sizes (not adjustable) and the videos of it in use were cool. It was on the internet, so it must be real, right?

Only smaller production over last day, had a COVID jab which knocked stuffing out of me a bit, wasn't feeling up to painting as much despite being stuck inside!

Anyway, another model i had assembled in a box for a year or so gets the treatment.
I haven't done much at all for my GSC, but this model kinda makes me want to do more.

Smashed out a couple things in the past week.

First up an ammo jack. Cool model, busy... so didn't do much except a bit of paint on most exposed bits and cover everything in heavy washes....

Then a little terrain. Assembled a few bits but just painted this.

And just now finished my missing tile.
I ended up making playdough as my mold with a coat of Vaseline to stop sticking.
I poured a bunch of different inks in with the resin to try to do a toxic slime kinda look. It worked, kinda. With a spray of green on the underside really came to life.
Happy with it. Gives me the 3x3 board now which is all I was after!

Might have inadvertedly bought the killteam in on online trade... oh well. These things happen.

Did a very quick de-orkify of the main terrain with a dremel, grinding off a few horned skull things.
I kept the skull on the pump as i reckon this will become the home ground for my Cawdor, and with Skeletor as their illustrious leader it suits just fine!
2 session paint job so far, will suit the rest of my terrain!
