Congratulations Cam. Seeing that town board all together- somehow it doesn't seem like weeks that you've been working on the separate pieces; it has flowed along so effortlessly that it was startling to see it all together like that. Really impressive work all around.

That's a fantastic layout. I keep meaning to ask you how you got that marble effect on the cake toppers-- did you come up with that technique by yourself?

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks everyone.

Just a quicky for you Josh. Here is a tut I did some time ago now on my technique, I basically do this kinda thing still, might change colours and intensity but pretty much it.



And shots.











Thanks for looking, and hope that helps Josh.

A useful tutorial on marble effect. Thanks for posting that, Cam.

The surgery scene is a bit gruesome.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks guys and dolls.

Agree it is a bit gruesome, but it will be mainly hidden inside a wall structure to be built, and the figures are magnatized in place so can be removed, I hope it is conveying a bit of a twist toward Slannash, not sure at the mo.

I will be back here very shortly, like tomorrow, but a little something is coming together slowly on my ork blog...



Just needed a little break, back at the real work tomorrow.

L'eggs panty hose back in the 70's used to come in egg-shaped plastic bubbles- in an age before craft stores they were in great demand for projects of all sorts.

Thank you all, much appreciated.

Mainly working away with the orks, and have finally sent Twinners terrain away.

But here is a quicky afternoons work.

Made some masters and molded them...


And a little work and cast them out of plaster.....



Going to cast a few bits in resin see if they come out a little better, the plaster ends up a little fragile sometimes.

Thanks for looking.

Oh and get over and vote on the LoER competition voting thread....

Probably keeping this one for myself. Gits was naughty and slipped me something for the boat, so with the boost decided to treated myself to killteam. really hoping it will finally get my kids into gaming. I can hope.

I have a couple ideas in mind that will be going further afield though. And I am offering the winner of the LoER comp a Cam original as well. Having a hard time with the judging, but getting there, results tonight I hope.

We got the set from Cam it is truly amazing. FedEx decided one box needed a few kick though so there will be no unboxing video as that would be unfair to Cam. We have to do a bit of TLC but we will have a review video up ASAP. Once again we are completely blown away by the stuff.

Good work.

The way I see it, about the OOP model, what are you saving it for? So that it can be passed on down the generations to eventually be sold for millions... Or is it a model that's intended to be painted?

No need to be scared of it, take your time, really push yourself to do the best you can do, something you can be proud of.
Don't compare it to the best golden daemon winner's work, compare it to where you were 5, 10, 15 years ago and see just how far you've come.

Make it something that you can strive to beat "next time".

Then, when the paint job starts to look old, strip it and re-do.

You're not going to break it (in any way that we modeller's can't fix), and otherwise it's going to sit, unloved, in a drawer.

Models are meant to be built and painted.

From someone else that would have no problem chopping up an OOP model.

Paint the metal model. If you don't like the paint job, stripping the paint off of metal is very easy compared to plastics. Do it, man!

Post by: Theophony


As others have said, go ahead and paint the model, with GW doing the made to order stuff who knows if that model might return and any perceived value from rarity will plummet. Besides your skills will only add to the model.

Will you enjoy painting the mini? Yes? Then paint it. Worst case is you mess up and strip the paint off to try again.

I see no downside here, unless you mess up and do NOT learn from your mistakes.

Thanks folks.

OK so when I look at this model I can see him striding away from his transport toward a horde of nasty stuff, just casual as you like, "Right ho chaps, lets have at it!" And so I got this really amazing guy striding away from.....well can't be a tank, that's lame, I know a limo, like he is out on the tiles one night and happens across a screaming horde of nasty, and just says " Pull over Jock old boy, spot of fun here!" Then magic wand in hand strides out of the car straight at them. So that is where I am going with this, Himself, a couple "body guards" and his sweet ride parked up with a nasty bunch of stuff doing something silly like maybe some GSC tagging a wall with some silly graffiti.

Anyways, here are some wip shots of bits so far....
Himself....(looking at the picks got a fair amount of cleaning up to do and he is still PIP anyways)



Da lads...



And the "limo"




All still WIP/PIP, but getting there, Got some work to do on the "base tomorrow,

The sculpt is intriguing. How did you make its armature?

OK so distractions, distractions......

Recently came up about painting orange, and I was trying something a bit new today so thought I would share, not sure I got it right but we will see...

Anyways, orange, well I normally work from a red through to an orange, and sometimes I work from a yellow and deepen it to an orange, but today I thought i would experiment and let you see me fail dismally, but we might get something out of it in the end.

Started off with a black primer and zenithal highlight of white....


Then I am applying multiple layers of an ink wash, this is the ink...



Now mistake no.1 I watered it down about 1:1 water...this made it too thin I think, but carry on.
Here is simply 3 coats of wash over the plain white...


Then I added a base layer of yellow ochre to another model and added the same 3 layers, notice the difference..


And a third model base coated burnt sienna...


The experiment did not work but does show nicely what the base coat does to the results. From this I am going to redo these guys but work from the burnt sienna and use acrylic paints rather than the ink.

Talking of redo, better strip them bad boys....and here is a nice tip. Stripping, don't mess about, I have seen loads of different ways of doing this and have done a few myself. This is by far the quickest and easiest way ever.

Dropped the models into a jar with Methylated Spirits. And got my new friendly neighbourhood battery operated muncher cleaner...


And literally 5 minutes later I am here...


Got right into all those cavities.


OK more later, thanks for looking and thoughts are most welcome.

Thanks Vik,

OK, first up a little plug for a good friend.

Just found out that my friend has a business on the side, wish I had known a long time ago. He sells buttons and also they have a laser cutter or two. I went over and met the family and ended up discussing lots of ideas. Basically these guys can cut acrylic, mdf, plywood etc. And I am in talks at the moment to see about some designs for our hobby. Here is a link...
https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/lasercuttingne00/Other/_i.html?_storecat=1

And here is a very rough first go at a little scatter piece....(it is 30mm wide)...(thats about 1 1/4" for you lot across the pond)


I need to work out a couple kinks, that are all my fault, but quite happy with first blush...




They are a wonderful group and seem very open to ideas, I will certainly be dealing with them shortly, really looking forward to it.


Next up the orange saga continues.....


Base coated burnt sienna...


And ok forgot to do a step by step but after a little more paint...


Then a purple wash and a rehighlight and a little more work....


Have pics of the finished product later.

Lastly a quick modelling related, .....I have seen people raving about this light before I am sure, but I have to say this is close to the best £20 I have spent on the hobby in a long time...

these are duffle coat knobs...right? cool container idea...could work as ammunition too...

your friend already sports a huge amount of products...i´ve looked through his shop...even now he has basically bases of the most used sizes so to say...also i like the boxes...i need to book mark his shop....eventually i see an order coming up...laser cutters are probably the next big thing everyone wants for his own workshop in the future...

last pic of yon eldar looks really good...you really do honour these metal relics

Thanks folks, much appreciated.

So, there is a new LoER comp. I really cannot recommend them enough.


So first lets choose a base to work from....only really putting this up to show I have lots of mdf laminate floor cut up to make terrain bases, highly recommend picking up a few bits, even a end of line box at the local DIY store and spend a few minutes cutting it up.


Some sweety wrappers.....


Bit of foamcore...


Want a few details so lets make some...


And after adding a layer of styrene sheet we start to add the details...


OK thats it for now, thoughts welcome...

What advantages doe this sort of MDF have? Not as prone to warpage?


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2018/09/29 06:17:28


Post by: inmygravenimage


Because laminate flooring is made from lots of layers, it's very stable, very strong and - as you say - doesn't warp. The mighty Cam made me a set of 1x1 board tiles from this, and they live in my garage (because space) which is not the most... clement of atmospheres and they're still rock solid and dead level.

Post by: Red Harvest


Ah, that makes sense then. Thank you kindly sir.

In your garage? You no have basement? I keep everything in mine, and run a dehumidifier 24-7 during the summer. We're something like 20"+ over our normal rainfall total for the year... and this is without any hurricanes/tropical storms etc. So... much, much humidity.

I'll keep an eye out for the stuff.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2018/09/29 19:49:39


Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks folks.

@ Red, Main advantage is exactly as Graven said,(thanks bud) stability, it is very dense. It is relatively inflexible, and solid. Has a coating on either side which is slightly water resistant, and can be cut with simple tools. Glues take well to the surface, and the finished surfaces take paint well without the age old problem of the paint soaking in. Though the edges and any areas you clean the surface coating off will still suffer this. I can work this stuff with a box cutter and pliers, and side cutters. The box I bought is enough to cover a 1.2m (4ft) square, and cost £1 as it was the end of a line in the DIY store. I don't care what the finish was on top, but I guess you could get the one with a granite or slate finish to make life easier. I did have the advantage of a circular saw to chop it all up in about 1/2 hour, but you could do that with a hand saw, the dust I collected has made me a bunch of flock too. (HAZARD WARNING!!! MDF dust is said to be carcinogenic and not very good for you, only work in a well ventilated area and possibly wear a mask.) Personally don't really plan on living long enough to worry about that kinda gak, and have been cutting up stuff and spraying stuff for far too long to worry about it now, but even so I do not just cut this stuff up, I do it outside, with a dust extractor on the tooling.

Next up a little side project again...





Thank you for looking, all questions and C&C welcome.

Thanks guys, very much appreciated. Please don't say that Vik, want you to smile when you visit not grimace.

Yes it is the wee small hours, and yes I can't sleep so a bit of paint and a couple more details added.....




And some "anti-grav" pads....







Thinking that the "ship" would have pads similar to the anti grav systems used on landspeeders, kinda like the ones used in the Matrix on the "ships", along with thrusters, would enable something like this to float low to the ground.

From here i will be adding a "shanty" homestead that will give a frame for miniatures to climb over and add a bit more story to it, will be adding a few more "sweety" details too, because I think I have buried the Smarties tube a bit too far.

Thoughts are welcome, please feel free to comment. Thanks for looking....

Looks stunning as a build. I'm slightly unsure of the pads' colour scheme: whilst your verdigris is excellent, I'm not sure it fits. I know you're looking to contrast with the rest of the ship but I'm not sold on it.

As I’ve told Dr. H, go yellow safety yellow like watch out for the bumpers or the antigravity plates will flatten you sort of yellow. Of course the writing should be super small so you have to get close to read it .

Ship is looking great. Will you make the other half later as a separate piece or just leave it to us to imagine it buried in the ground.

i think with the current build it reminds me strongly of the Star Wars aesthetics...which is a good thing...

tho...one thing...the pads...they kill for me some aspect of the look...the silhouette gets blown up too much...i see/ understand your vision...but...hmmm....of course just my 2c here...

also...grimacing...well...your work is sometimes as effective as strong coffee....a true eye-opener but nevertheless to fully work still bitter on the tongue of the mediocre

Great little buggy Cam! I love how your little side projects which you just knock out are equivalent to a full project for most of us

@Red - basements aren't hugely common over here, so garages are our thing - although your garages tend to be a tad bigger....as in I've seen plenty of garages on Dakka that would fit my home into

OOOOps!


Bit of a funny day, bought that and also nipped by the local Nickle and Dime store, did a bit on tooling today...

£1 for 3 nail brushes, take a pair of pliers to the bristles. bit of glue and some sandpaper.

Great for straight edge sanding.

And never had a static grass applicator so looked it up and £7 worth of bits later...

And it actually works....


As i say bit of a funny day, not that it matters much to me these days, but couple of my projects finally got enough votes to get a score and apparently I am pretty gak. Don't really care. Not sure how to feel really. Honestly it is not that important. I keep saying and do believe that I am not a painter, I do enough that I am happy and I enjoy trying to paint. All I ever want to do is inspire folk, never going to be the best, but if some people try as well and usually end up way better than me that's cool in my book.
Tomorrow think I will get my trusty 3" brush out and paint some marines.

Anyways thanks for looking folks. you guys are amazing, thank you for keeping me going.


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2018/10/03 01:08:16


Post by: Red Harvest


I would recommend a #3 brush instead of a 3" brush.

Building is what you enjoy doing anyway, so disable the voting for paint scores and be done with it.

Save the bristles from those brushes. They make excellent tufts of grass.

You should be paying attention to the people who visit your blog, that gives a better idea of your painting and modeling skill. That's very cool about building the static grass applicator

That all depends on which pictures you look at, you have some 9+'s in there too.

Until you get into double-digit votes for a picture you can't trust the result. There's too many "guests" out there that give 0's just to troll,
And even where people are voting intentionally, everyone has a different range in which they "will" vote: If it would be less than a 4 then why bother, equally, if it's clearly a 10 then the artist already knows it's good so why bother...
And what they consider to be worth a certain value. There's no guidelines on what is worth a 10 and how that compares to a 5, or a 3...

The biggest influence I've seen on what gets good scores is how "cool" the model is:
A basic SM tactical squad, even painted beautifully, is a bit "boring" and so gets few votes.
Crazy patterns, wild conversions, amusing posing, gets lots of high score votes... for both coolness and painting...

One of my "best" painted models, if you consider the voting, is my "Rippers playing 40K" piece.

That picture has an average painting score of 7.78... (and I know some people gave it a 10, see the comments)
I would give that picture a 3 for painting. Just being kind.

That's a better score (and therefore "better painted") than my Scythe figures I did recently:
Spoiler:

Anna and Wojtek has a painting score of 7.75...
I would give this one an 8 for painting (pretty much as high as I'd give any of my work).

I put no effort into the painting of the rippers, and hours of work into the Scythe figures.
Do you really believe that the rippers are better painted than Anna?!
I don't. I know that those Scythe figures are some of my best work, but they're very subtle and not very exciting.
The rippers are just funny.

It seems that if you make them laugh, it short-wires people's brain and they don't critique the painting.
So a fun project can end up with a high score for an average "get it done" paint-job, then when you finally finish a more serious model and you're really proud of the effort you put in to the painting and consider it your best painted model to date... it scores lower than the earlier project and you're left wondering where you've gone wrong.

There's nothing wrong with what you are doing.
The voting doesn't work as a measure of how well you are doing.

Judge your work for yourself, look back over your own work and compare it to now, if you can see the improvement (objectively, critically, as if you were judging) that improvement is real.
Also, listen to the people you trust (not the faceless voters), the comments are infinitely more useful in seeing how you are doing. Every "great" "good job" and proves that someone has been moved by your work enough to put the effort in to write a comment (no matter how short), that is worth far more than someone clicking on a number, as flash judgement, just to see the next picture.

It's been a long time since I've had the time to go on a voting binge... speaking of...

Thank you guys, really appreciate you taking the time out. Honestly do not worry at it though, you guys taught me long ago it's what happens here that matters more than the silly gallery. Just kinda wish the gallery was a better tool. instead of full of tools. Half the time I just forget to disable voting and that's the only reason I get any votes, don't really care, was just kinda venting.

And just saying you have no idea how cool and happy this makes me guys, that you take the time to make a video for it is humbling and I feel honoured.

That's alright, gave me an excuse to vent also... and to encourage Theo' to vote on all my things.

I'm too busy (and really running out of space) trying to sell my own things to be buying more things, but I will say good luck.

You don't know if you don't try, put things out there and someone, somewhere, will buy it, eventually, if the price is right.
But don't sell yourself short
Look at what it has cost you to make in time and materials, and then add profit on top of that (+50-100%, this is the price of your experience that they are paying for), and don't forget postage; make 'em pay as it will eat your profits to nothing (if you want to offer free postage, add the maximum postage cost to the price).

Give good, clear, exciting descriptions. Avoid self-depreciation. Marketing is all about telling the customer how great your product is.

And good photos.

@Fifty, Just used scissors bud, think I pierced it first with a knife. Be careful the metal is sharp.

Quick distraction, more really just messing about whilst I make a couple things...











Made some molds and cast some stuff...








So basically, quick knock up of a foam core structure and then I add a few resin pieces, make a few molds to add a few more resin bits, and getting there, much of the interior is pattern printed paper and stuck in. Obviously got a bit more to do including cleaning up a bit.

Did not have much time, hope to get a bit more at it tomorrow, get a bit more done on the LoER comp as well.

Think this one will get sold, if I can clean it up enough.

Thoughts as always appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Thank you all so much for comments.

Been in a bit of a funny lately, sorry to keep buggering about. Can't seem to settle. Few things, hip and head (mentally) just fubar and can't seem to sink into anything.

With that in mind here is another unfinished project....can't tell you how much this is bothering me.



Plan is to make it and probably convert it to be used as a Taurox stand in, even got a dio in mind for it. Those Aussie Imperial Guard using it in the jungle some place type of thing., Getting bits together for it.

In the mean time I had it sat on my desk so picked it up to have a start at.


Still comes to bits so I can detail the interior.


And a scale shot, ( I don't plan on it being an ork piece yet.)





Really not happy with the base it is on, will definitely be changing that up.

Thanks again for looking and C&C welcome.

Honestly Cam, I'd keep it as it is and paint/assemble it straight up. Maybe a few modifications based on some historical photos of such vehicles. It doesn't look like it would scale well at all with any 40k minis.

I understand the lack of focus. I haven't done anything hobby related since mid-August. No Mojo for it. I have had a bunch of 1:1 scale projects.

i´m with red on this one...the kit is way too dainty and frail looking for anything really suggesting imperial army...as a taurox stand in it would be (currently way too obvious) so i guess you should do as red say and make as prescription says...


as to the head and fubar thing...can´t tell you really how often i think offline about you and your family and your live...to sum it all up...we all love you...!!! and that´s no sweet talk here!

Cam, I would love to see you convert that truck into a fancy civilian vehicle. I'm still very impressed with that flying limo you made (I think it was for the gene stealer hybrids). I'm sorry to hear that you're not really feeling it, when trying to craft. It happens to us all sometimes, but it's a real loss to the Dakka community when it's you. Don't force yourself though, I expect it will come back naturally, and we'll all get to enjoy your inspired work to the fullest again.

Thank you all so much, very much appreciated.

Truck to one side while I think on it, I am leaning toward your advise gents, probably leave it stock.

In the mean time been doing a few bits most of it nothing worth reporting.

Been working on the house, getting close, couple bits I am not happy with but got to cut it off at some point. Still WIP at the moment though.




And some interior detailing...






So what do you think, worth say £30.

Thank you for looking and all comments thoroughly appreciated.

looks lovely, lots of really nice details...
i think i´ve mentioned having recently purchased a hotwire cutter...with this i am currently working on many projects that have a slight resemblance to your works...and i too have marveld about worth...measuring effort in money...which i think is a really hard task....and something i am maybe not able to talk about, because the learning curve is something else entirely compared to building or painting the models... so for that i can´t help you with...

what i could give you my personal 2 cents about is ....

the framed pictures are a big all around...you seem to have mastered micro painting like no one else!!! the one you made for us is still hanging in our bedroom....! but your shown portraits here...the wallsections they´re hung up on seem to small in space for these canvases...only the one on the brickwall feels like it is a fitting frame for that wall...

the bookshelf is a truly neat idea i have to nick...with foam i could easily reproduce that kind of furniture!!!
and the sofa...if self made...pure win!!!

one minor suggestion...the floor in the living room looks a wee bit aggressive ...dunno what to do about that tho...^^

The wallpaper. I get the impression that Brits like wallpaper much more than Americans do. It does work well in that building.

Don't forget the tiny coffee maker

Is it the look of the second storey that troubles? I'd consider pilasters of some sort, and a more prominent ledge at the divide between storeys 1 and 2.

Actually, now that I look more... A bannister for the stairs?

Thanks folks.

@ Vik, I hear you on the pictures, kind of stumped myself with to many windows. And I think I will take the hint and put some rugs down.
@ Syro, thanks sir, comment very much appreciated.
@ Red, Yup wallpaper is a British thing I think, was wanting to try something other than my usual rotting broken down stuff. I am kinda with you on the second storey, but over here we have social housing (council estates) full of this kinda house...well ish



So you see where I was coming from, but have seriously thought about redoing the upstairs, or maybe cladding it in wood.

Oh and OK coffee machine....though I think a tea pot would be better.

@Gits, thank you sir, always nice to see you about.

OK so different project again, LoER comp entry....just a couple hours messing about with a few ideas....


Bit of sprue work..


Smarties lid...

Makes a silly little whimsy man hole to what we wonder? They got something in the basement. ( no I will not be doing a basement.)


Some oil drums from a large clear straw and some glue stick...





And in situ with a few boxes piled up...(Tarps to follow.)



And lastly some sweety wrappers..

Glued with much patience and swearing...

For a nice shiny dish ..



Thoughts as always welcome, thank you for looking.

Ah, a tea pot. Naturally. What was I thinking, a coffee maker.
speaking of British and American differences

Glued those candy wrappers? Seriously, how? I would think that stuff in impervious to adhesives.

I actually really like coffee...

I have been trying out this stuff....
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mitre-Fast-Bonding-Kit-Standard/dp/B001GUA7YM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1540605808&sr=8-1&keywords=mitre+fast

Mitre fast. It is a super glue, pretty thick viscosity, as a glue it is OK, but with it's spray can of actuator it is really good, the actuator sets the super glue fast, really fast, and sets it clear, so the wrappers are more encased than glued in place, followed by a coat of PVA over the whole thing. Seems to have worked for now.

I am finding it quite brilliant as a gap filler, and price wise it is competitive with most super glue.

Post by: Red Harvest


It is an interesting and clever approach. I've seen the bottoms of aluminum cans cut out and use for the dish of a satellite.

The glue doesn't make the cellophane brittle and crumbly? On the other hand, layered with glue should make for a sturdy laminate. That 'gold' foil effect reminds me of the wrapping on the Apollo mission lunar module.

I'm very impressed with what you were able to do with those sweety wrappers Cam, When this LoER comp started, I briefly considered trying to make something out of candy wrappers, but I quickly gave up the idea being sure they were unworkable.

i beg to differ....wallpaper is a German thing...for aeons...as far as i now... silken or later paper ones...as far back as the 16th century?...iirc from numerous visits of museums...

rugs...that will be interesting... challenge yourself with a fluffy one

the dish is a real testimony to your modeling approach...you see something that you want to be done...and you do it...regardless of any obstacles...you´re a chuck norris of modelling...honestly!

i recently saved a bag of cereal packaging material...the plastic bag... greyish and rather stiff... for future projects... and i am even anticipating a heavy fight to get it glued then...but that bon bon paper is probably overkill when it comes to working with it...i bet you could have invented a universe of swearwords while doing that dish ... you probably sealed one surface then the other side with quite some curing time in-between?

Well, it was stomach cancer. See here https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/01/070116131630.htm.

Judging from what I saw of the interiors of German houses on the TV show Tatort (Köln series) Everything was rather Bauhaus -eque or Le Corbusier-esque . Lots of glass. I though it strange given that Germany is not the warmest place. The heating bills on those houses... I shudder. Or the interiors were a bit seedy. It was a detective show, so seedy is to be expected.

I had a candy bag for lifesavers, IIRC, that had a nice foil looking side (the inside) that I though would make a good skin to simulate brushed steel or aluminum or something metallic Never could figure out how to glue it so that it would be durable. I may have to give the mitre-fast method a try on it

Good work on the house.
Love the little paintings.
As for selling it, if you don't ask you don't get. If you are happy to part with it for that price, then it's a good price.

Don't undersell yourself though, if you honestly feel that it should cost more due to the work you put in, up the price.

The customer is not paying just for the materials, a one-off model like this is worth your time and your experience for bringing it into existence. They are paying for all the work you have done to get to this stage.

For future sales products, think about the market you want to sell to. Who you want to sell to will tell you what to make, how to make it, and the level of detail (and therefore time and effort to put in) required.
And, it will tell you how to sell it: for gamers? mention gaming-related phrases (line of sight blocker... etc.). As a display piece? mention the fine detailing... you get the idea.

Good luck

Good work on the crash piece too.

Putting it to one side for a mo, got until December to finish it, might add more stuff, might add a few more whole pieces to it. Not sure yet.

In the mean time work progresses on the big boy over on my ork blog, so just to break up the routine a bit thought I would get these one step closer to finished.



And with the army...



And also since we are just past Halloween, you will have some of these silly toys lying about. Well thought it was about time I had a go at them.



Happy with how it turned out for a quick and silly paint job.

And finally just because.....


More pill box containers, getting a collection together of these, a few more to have a go at while I wait on paint drying, all good fun.

Thank you for looking and all your comments are gratefully received.

@ Syro, It is glued to an old terminator sized base, and superglue with bicarb to speed it up. One leg at a time. Hope that helps.

So long time ago I started a unclean model, but stalled on the hands, well got the bit between my teeth and had a go....




So going to finish him up now. Few details to add.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks guys,

@ Vik, vallejo surface primer, and then just painted normally, certaainly seems to be fine at the moment.

And now for something completely different....

So last Christmas I bought my youngest a bunch of Tau. He is mad on the robot side of things, loves Gundam, etc. And at the time we had no internet and they were all into Dad's stuff. Which was really cool. Now to try and encourage them I did not interfere too much. Couple weeks later we get the internet back and I have not seen them since. Managed to get one night out of them playing kill team.. So my youngest comes up to me and asks if he can come do some painting, I am mega keen. Scratch him out a patch and away we go. He painted a really great job on a AoS model I had kicking about. His choice. Not showing it here, he wants to get his own blog set up. I am so happy you would not believe how happy.

While we are sat here working away, he talks about his Tau. Which have been in a box on a shelf of shame for nearly a year, and asks me if I could paint them because he messed up, he glued them all together and he can't be asked to paint them when it will be so awkward. No worries I just love to paint, and I am in a mood for it at the moment, so here is a big robot suit thingy. He wants them White and black with red. No idea but here goes....

Still WIP



Not bad, needs work but getting there, real pain it being all glued solid.

Whilst that was drying between coats I decided to paint these up for him also, again WIP need to finish up a few bits, and the base is still very wet at this point.



Beautiful models, just hope I can do them justice. Had them a while, have just ordered an early christmas prezzy for myself, Infinity Operation Cold Front. Been meaning to get into it for ages. Love the aesthetic. Been so tempted by many games lately, Git's has nearly had me with Bushido, and Graven and his Comics based games, but I stand a better chance of the lads getting into Infinity. I sounded them out and just not interested in the others.

OK thanks for looking and all comments are most welcome.

The Russians? Cam... really. The ALEPH minis are the much cooler from that box. Both are quite playable though.

Just so you know, you can top off by getting the Beyond Coldfront box, and have 2 10 mini forces ready to go.

Nicely painted they are. Take your time with them. You don't need many to play. However, they can be like Pokemon. <glances at number of unpainted infintiy figs in the painting queue. sighs>

You and the young 'uns ought to have plenty of fun playing. Do work through those introductory scenarios in the Coldfront box rather than jump into the full game. There is a lot to Infinity; it is best learned in small pieces.

Remember Cam, those are Russians, so any graffiti you do needs to be in Cyrillic lettering. A good backdrop, BTW. Not overshadowing the minis.

Monkeytroll, it's called a trenchhammer, and it is relatively new. It is also throwable. The mecha is called a Ratnik.

Ridiculously good, and great to see Infinity done with grit and grime. I like the russian miiltary green, really effective at creating a distinctive style.

Thanks folks much appreciated.

Little side track, bit of terrain for the Infinity. Stolen shamelessly from the truly masterful RedHarvest, they say to copy is flattering, not up to his standards, but....








Yes I know the water effects went a bit wrong, my fault, and trying out new stuff and being silly and not patient and using stuff that should not be anywhere near it, but it is OK, it is for me and I can live with it........I hope.

And with the scraps lying about the bench made a couple building toppers, for future use...


Yes Red I am going to make whole, complete, undamaged buildings for a change.....

Thank you for looking, and as always please feel free to comment.

Товарищ КаМСКИ, ты хорошо справился

Yes, nailed the Kazak look in one. Nice. Water effect is fine. Maybe a few ripples in the pond? Say, Elmers is now making a clear glue... https://www.amazon.com/Elmers-4336846284-889673068018-6-Pack-School/dp/B0134C3HI2?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-d-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B0134C3HI2 that I've heard makes for nice water type effects. Give it a try.

I'd add a light gray or white to the ALEPH minis. Maybe not a complete copy of the studio scheme, but close.

That fountain makes for a perfect piece of scatter in Infinity. You'll see when you play with it on the table.

Thanks Red.

I am leaning heavily toward your suggestion of more white panels on the Aleph. But for now just getting them together...












And another still in the works....


They are all still WIP, got to go a long way on them yet, first job tomorrow will be getting them uniform, then as Red suggested a bit more painted detail, a little less metallic. Wanted to try it to see what I could come up with, but they are not quite right.

Thanks for looking, and as always C&C welcome.

Been lurking a while here and in the orky thread too and I gotta say that I'm more than impressed!

I think you are an amazing painter and even better at crafting stuff. All your terrain pieces are so inspiring. I might have to lend a few ideas.

Still have a lot of earlier pages to go trough, but I think I might just do that! Also looking forward for the future and whatever it brings with it.

Do continue. The way you've painted the Dakinis gives them a Terminator look. Nice and sinister. Fitting, considering the way ALEPH is portrayed in the background.

These are truly beautiful models.

But today a little something different.

Wanted to look at roads again, and since I will need some nice ones for infinity.

Started with a pice of eva foam flooring and a piece of laminate mdf flooring.


Put on some boarders..


Tried to add texture, did not really work..


Ended up with something like this, which I am happy with...


And knocked together one of Red's whole houses....might add more floors, not sure yet.



Thanks for looking....

Hey Cam
Have you tried a high grit sanding block?
That might give you a little texture without shredding the foam.

Camkierhi,

Just wondering how your roads sit compared to the rest of your buildings? As the roads are raised do they create any issues with your buildings or are the building raised high enough to compensate?

Sincerely,

CB


Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2018/12/04 04:21:20


Post by: Camkierhi


Thanks guys,

@ WP, could try it, but don't think it is really necessary.
@ CB, Well yes if the buildings are put upto the road there is a problem that could be cured by adding a layer of foam under the buildings. But my aim would be a gap between the buildings and the road, and some inserts see below.

So here you go ...


Pavements....



Pavements and grassy verge..


Just grassy verge


Rubble verge...


Misc. scale shots...





In other news...




And...



And...

Brilliant Cam ,

I would have wasted resources in putting the mats under all the buildings, but your ramps are a great idea to circumvent that.

Really like the sandbag diorama piece, very realistic.

Thankfully I know I have a box of probably never to be used infinity stuff, but your painting it up has me looking twice every time I see some pop up on Miniaturemarket’s website. They are beautiful models, this newest one of yours proves it, but also so daunting to try. While their crisp paint jobs on their website are artwork in metal, I almost see it as an injustice since I have no way of getting close to that style with my skills. I like your more gritty take on them, which is causing that itch to dig some out. Maybe with my lull while waiting for more Bushido stuff to arrive

Always wanted a series of highways for a sci fi game to happen on, something like Fallout 3's ruined highways criss crossing the map, adding an extra level of verticality to the maps. Your roads look like great gaming terrain.

I am staggered by your productivity mate.

Thanks guys.

@ Da Boss, certainly doable, I built these with that in mind, thinking I only have to make some supports and I could have this as a flyover easily. was always on the cards. I need to get my arse in gear, but if you want to PM me we can talk about a set of roads bud no worries.

@ Graven, funny I kind of had that in mind when I was building it, wanted a slightly futuristic feel without it being all super slick sporty nonsense. Going to have to go do some referencing and do one for the table.

OK so sat down yesterday and binged a bit of tv and to keep busy this happened....






It grew a bit more and I could not resist a quick "table" shot to see how it looks.





And started on some of the details I will need....



Each floor is removable, so hopefully playable. Got some details to work out yet and interior "scatter" details I am wondering about. I mean furniture etc. will get in the way a fair bit, but want to add some details.

I am using 3mm foamex for the structure with the larger pieces and the floors being 5mm foamex. Here is where I get mine.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WHITE-MATT-PVC-FOAMEX-FOAM-SHEETS-SIGN-DISPLAY-MOUNTING-FOAMBOARD-SIGNAGE-BOARD/222208369788?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=521042844329&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

£2.60 an A3 sheet I have used 2 sheets on this building, so materials for this so far are about £10, at most. Not that I ever really care about such things.

Thanks for looking and hope it helps folks. C&C always welcome.

I am looking forward to the cab then!
Looks great! I am particularly interested in the detailing. May I suggest (boldly) that you make a small external A/C unit, junction box, vents, mould and cast them? That way you can easily have identical exterior furniture. Should be no problem for a man of your copious talents

you know...you could make the odd pound or two on the sides via ebay by building whole table worth of terrain? i am currently viewing quite a lot of builders roaming the auctions...and you certainly have what it takes for selling quality!
the lil car is a nice addition...the roads....yep....very good...i would do some ruined ones for mixing...and of course a curve and some interjections/ crossroads (?)

the tall building (if not skyscraper) is an idea i´ve seen quite often and wanted to do too...but always shied away from....well...now i build medival/ fantasy any ways^^

I really like the statue from last page - the kind of thing that really makes a table pop, original art. The roads are amazing - and whatever effect you used on the paint does make it look worn and textured. The little bit of gravel and stuff along the edge of the road is really effective. Gotta remember that.

never understood why someone wants to have stairways outside ...instead of in the building....? frosty steps all the way towards your appartment...? what do old folks do in the winter? order their can of sweetened mild via amazon?

but anyways....looks good and spot on cam!

also...just out of curiosity...why the elongated side walls, that look over the last level?

furniture and gubbinz look amazong! you are truly self reliant...and very inventive...i think Red made this stairway gimmick too earlier on but nevertheless!!!

Those big blank spaces on the top of the building sides are begging for billboards, Cam.

A detailed restroom...hmmm, an oddly satisfying challenge, eh?

The one thing about multi-storey buildings in Infinity is that only the first couple of levels get used. I would make sure the first 2 levels are accessible, and the rest can be more or less for show.

The external staircases are perfect for the game, BTW. There are plenty of buildings with staircases like that around me. But then I do not live in the Arctic like Vik.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thank you all.

Indeed the stair thingy has been done before and probably a lot better, by RedHarvest and I believe OneManNoodle also did one.

I am getting to the stage of a few tags, but first up here is a little progress...

Vik, you asked before about the extra at the top, well that was slack for me to put in some structural work so the individual floors can be removed independently.




Still a bit rough, but it works and I will get the kinks out soon.



More bathroom antics, this time I made several "pods" that I could then slip into the building sections.



Also made the roof...


And so the building is looking like this at the mo.




While I was waiting on painty drying, got a few scraps together and started on another piece, this will be for scenery but as you will see it has a heavy influence from some film or other...


Because I am impatient I often use this stuff...

It sets in 5 minutes rock hard and can be sanded etc. but it is only workable for a couple minutes to start with.

And while puzzling about the leg joints remembered this little gem from a car boot sale...


So five minutes fiddling..







Started to add details...


And this is as far as tonight goes.


It is inspired by rather than an actual copy. I think a wreck of this kind fits quite well with what I am aiming for with the infinity stuff.

As always Thank you so much for looking and all comments are gratefully received.

Fan straight out of KlausNotSanta designs...

@ Graven, think you are right I might do that, but happy enough for now.

So now for something completely different, and I mean off the scale different.....

HELP!!! Friend of mine has asked for some 10mm Ancient Rome scale buildings......no worries...........

So just a couple quick knock ups this evening just rying out a few bits....



Little white dude is 10mm high for scale.

I have designs in mind no worries, but how big are these things, looking it up on the net, looking at 80mm x 50mm is a normal house, but by scale that would be 16m (52 feet) that seems quite large, or is it, really not sure. My house which is a large family home, quite modern is 10m front to back and 6m wide. Mmmm.

So any of you guys who might be into this lot please shout up, what buildings do you have how big are they, in game what do you actually want. Walls fences, forts lots of buildings?

Thanks for looking and hope you guys can help.

I’d hit up Maniac_nmt, he has done similar and I think does some 10mm stuff.

Otherwise how I usually find things is checking some of the websites that sell similar and usually they have the sizes listed in the description. I just checked oldglory and 4ground, but neither of them have sizes or correct types of buildings.

Theo beat me to it, I was going to suggest asking Maniac_nmt also. I wouldn't worry too much Cam, you have an artistic eye, I'd just go with what looks right to you. I don't think building are ever their true size in war games anyway so they don't take up too much space.
What types of buildings are you going for, scattered farms where the armies are meeting or more city proper?

Woo, I'm infamous! I pm'd you Cam with some useful links. Mostly it depends on the game system and basing style, but usually at 10mm terrain isn't interacted with heavily (unless running speciffic game scenarios) in the same way you do at 28mm.

Here's a farmstead with orchard in the snow I did for Warmaster. The road is sized so that a unit could march through in column formation, but the odds it would ever get used that way are slim to none.

Then my castle (old wip picture is below, I can pulll a finished picture with a unit on it as well as a single unpainted model if you like) is sized so that you can get siege equipment in the towers, or entire units down the length of the walls.

Spoiler:


For Warmaster, we will often use lichen and scatter it to make shrub areas on the map, and that works really well and requires no work.

PM me again if you have any other questions.

Camkierhi,

That spider tank reminded me of the one of the old Battletech Mechs, except it had two legs I think, cannot recall the name of it now.

Looks quite different when painted.

Cheers,

CB

Thanks folks.

Not really much to show, plugging away but broken up with RL, apparently it's a time of year thing.

Anyways, little shot for you....


Thanks for looking.
