What's the scale on that Walker? It looks really nice right out of the box.


Hey Warboss.... Got some glue on the walker for a scale shot for ya! Got some primer on it and a wee base made up so will get some paint on it tonight.... Cheers

Ps.... The small viewing lens on the top of the body in the centre is a Ramshackle piece... That's the only addition I will be making to a great model! Imho!

Definitely an interesting model, looks awesome. Nice scale for a sentinel I would say, got a nice balance to it.

That's a nice size. The feet look a little inadequate to carry all that weight, but that would be my only complaint. Looking forward to seeing it painted.

Yo Ho Ho Me hearties!!

Happy new year to all and I hope that old father Geekmas was kind to you all!!

Stating as I mean to go on for 2016 (to reduce workload at home as it has a very negative effect on health & stress levels & increase my hobby time!) here is a little breakdown of my new and updated plans for the next while...

First off... I am going to begin working on a really nice idea for a conversion for Mr BigH Taking a Leman Russ as a base and looking to create an artillery tractor / supply vehicle ..... should be a really cool project and I have a couple of basic ideas floating around for now. I will update this week and bounce some ideas around! Really looking forward to pushing my scratchbuild / converting skills! Really want to do a top notch job on this one for him!

Secondly... the lovely Mrs MagosBiff90 was lovely enough to give me my first Forgeworld model as a surprise for Xmas... I am buzzing to announce that very soon (one of my FAV characters from the HH book series) Lord Commander Eidolon of the Emperors Children (Pre Heresy) will be on my work bench. I have only really checked over all of the parts in the box and I have to say they are incredibly detailed! IMHO its a glorious model and I cant wait to "attempt" to paint him in the full and immaculate regalia of the legion before the heresy!

Third and finally (for now) .... while not really anything to do with wargaming or anything like that, I have for a while now been wanting to try out modelling & painting a "Rat Rod" Style car... So over Christmas I was able to win a really nice modified car model I am going to use as a base ... The rat rod style and paint job will allow me to indulge my love of all things rusty and corroded & I will be using it as a base for trying our some new paint techniques and finishes ets and as such I think it should be ok to post pics etc here ... any thoughts? .... Actually.. now I am thinking a Post Apoc Ratrod Zombie Hunter Mad Max Machine!!!

I have actually already thrown a base coat on the Rat which consisted of a thin coat of Halfords grey primer...... then a light salt layer before sponging a rust red over areas I want to be corroded. then more salt over the red with a final light coat of primer over the red areas... For once I was patient and let the primer & salt fully dry... and then used a kitched scouring pad to really scrub off the salt which left a really nice textured finish & effect.

I actually find that using a little more hairspray... allows some of the salt to liquidise and it has an interesting effect on the paint colour below.... (see the pic of the bonnet (hood) below....

I then went over the whole model with the scouring pad, making sure to rub in a "front to back" direction to produce some nice gentle streaks .... and that's it.... the pics below show the chassis in its current state awaiting metallic chipping and of course some stronger rusting... the eagle eyed of you may also spot the "Mark of the Grandfather" I have added to a heavily corroded area as a wee nod to the plague father of corrosion!

going to organise my work space and set out these 3 projects tonight so hopefuly some more updates later!

Thanks again all an d really do hope all is well with you all!

haha... thanks mate! I added a wee spray of coffee last night using an old toothbrush (again aiming the sprays front to back) and pout a coat of matte varnish on it... so can work on the metalic newer chips and wear tonight... and of course the lovely rust!!

It is a 1/24 replica old school Nissan Gt-R... but it has been modded by a Japanese Garage as far as I can tell.. the packaging is mostly in Japanese anyway. I have added a wee pic below to show you the box it came in!

Hey mate, thanks I appreciate it... Looking to get Eidolon out of the box and cleaned up this weekend... just need to find a nice shade of purple to use as a base coat..... Think I am going to use the Forgeworld Painting guide for Emperors Children... and really try to make it a clean crisp job... maybe a little bit of dust on his cloak and boots but that's it....

cheers for looking in all!!

OMN to the rescue!! Thanks buddy!

Happy New year to you also, I hope you had a good one & thanks for the comment, I added some metallic chipping and some metalic edges using an 8B pencil last night... (very easy and effective) but very easy to get graphite all over the place! Added a "restrained" amount of rust .... will put up some more pics tonight... apart from the internal paintwork I think that's the chassis done so I will start to actually build and detail the frame next!

Hey all! Hope all is good!

I was looking for a bit of advice regarding the cleaning of Forgeworld models.

I started cutting the base parts away from the mould funnels etc and a couple of the pieces were a bit slippery and greasy almost... I have put them in some warm water with some fairy liquid in hope it will clear up. I will leave it over night.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Or any tips that might be more effective?

Is there a need to spray a primer coat to the resin after it is cleaned? Thats my intention so hopefully its ok!

Thanks all!

It's the release agent dude , helps the resin come out the mould. It's basically grease. Use neat washing up liquid and a scrubbing brush and rinse, or lately I use spray oven cleaner which is massive over kill but strips the grease away in no time ! Bare in mind oven cleaner will also strip the grease from your hands and lungs pretty quick too ...!!!

I soak them in washing up liquid and warm water for a few hours, scrub with a toothbrush and then repeat. That seems to do it. I dont remove any of the parts from the gates until after all the cleaning is done.....less likely to lose wee bits. I've never used a 'primer'primer per se but many folk swear by it. ONce dried, trimmed and cleaned I just spray with GW Chaos black spray and never had any probs so far

Thanks for the info guys! Really appreciated. I took ur advice and it seems to have worked! Got a base coat of paint on the base now and all seems fine! Will get some proper updates later.

On other things.... I have made a start on the LoER comp..... "Re cycle of life..."

Going to use that plentiful and mostly overlooked material of sprue to create a junkyard speeder rat rod buggy thing...... lol.....

Put the chassis together tomight and part pf a rig for the axles etc also.... have an idea of using old deoderant canlids as the main passenger section......

Not much to pass judgement on at the mo.... but more soon! Cheers all!

Ahoy all! I hope all is well!

Long time no see! Had a mad time of it over the last while including new job... new house...and... come the end of January 2017... a new family member... still getting used to the idea of being Daddy Biff! lol....

Anyways... throughout all of the upheaval and changeover.... I have collated my remaining models & bits.... Unfortunately I couldn't / didn't keep it all but have kept some key bits and bobs I really wanted...

As you will see, there's not a huge amount but I think some cool pieces and I have some ideas on putting them into some wee diorama's...

Going to aim to do bits when I can ... but hopefully can get some meaningful progress going....

Good to be back and hope alls going good!

Much obliged gents!! Thanks for the warm welcomes back!

haha and yes, once little magos arrived I suspect time will become much more precious! But.. I cant wait!

So... to start... I am going back to finish a little piece I started before my break. A modified Dust Tactics Steel Guard Command Squad unit..... "Gregor Bahnerman" ... As previous.. I have replaced the weapon with an imperial banner "battle damaged" ofcourse!

The base is a recycled piece from my Lothar Walker than I am going to rebase and work later..... I have added some extra detail to try to convey Bahnerman charging through a battlefield and through an enemy line, banner held high.. leading an army of unseen troopers behind him...

That's the idea anyway.... Still need to finalise the pose and glue in place.... but... a nice and quick wee start!

Hope you guys like the idea and would love ot hear some thoughts on possible posing / base detail etc.....

As always... awful photo skills!

Many thanks gents!

Wee mini steps forward but I have finally managed to get a final pose I am happy with for Gregor Bahnerman.....

Glued and all the details on him now.... got some details to finish off painting and weather... and then the final hurdle will be the banner.... something quite bright to offset the dirt and dull weathering of the rest of the dio... but with some black smoke stained bolter holes I think would be just the ticket!

Hopefully will have some more updates soon...

Thanks again all for looking in and would love to hea your thoughts on anything you think I should add in.. or the piece overall...

Ta,

Oh..... for Xmas I treated myself to a wee phone upgrade..... so I may finally be able to take some decent and in focus pics of my models..... lol....

Ahoy all,

Hope all is well,

Following another period of having no time to spare for any kind of hobby related shenanigans, I managed to grab an hour last night to myself and decided that I am going to overhaul the 3 Dust tactics Steel Guard Command Units I have... including Gregor Bahnerman, as I just had an urge to paint / weather & damage something.... lol....

Decided that Bahnermann himself will remain in the pre- primed Green..... with red frontal armour and the remaining 2 units will be grey, with the same red frontal armour.

As is my way.... I m going to heavily weather and damage the 2 suits and rebase all 3 onto a new base....

As a wee treat Elnibbus has offered to have a crack at painting the banner that will be the real "pop" element in the dio!

A wee pic below of the current state of the armour.... added chips and some damage but still need to add some oil and a wee bit of dirt but hopefully get onto that tonight.....

Cheers All and hopefully some more updates again soon!
