Awesome conversions as usual, the one with the jetpack is great!

Impressive display cabinet btw, I try to keep my projects as far away from each other as possible else I realise how much stuff I have...

They all look like fun, jet-pack one in particular. What did you use for the jet-pack effect?

Great looking observatory, probably not a good time of year to show this off as there are quite a few baubles hanging around my house right now.

That's a smashing space laser observatory!

I'm wondering though, how robust is it? Those clear plastic containers tend to have a fair bit of give in them and crack when squeezed to much. I mean not that you're gonna be doing pressure tests on it or anything, but I can just see it getting damaged easily. Have you strengthened it in any way?


That MEdge terrain sprue really is a versatile frame of bitz, that's for sure.

It's a fairly sturdy tub, and gluing it down to the masonite gives it a nice rigid base. There's a little bit of flex if you squeeze it, and squeezing too hard would likely pop some of the bits off, but for normal table use it's more than solid enough.

And now, for something completely different... Getting some long overdue paint on this little lady from Guild of Harmony. Picked up a whole bunch of GoH minis years ago, but had been putting off painting them until I felt I could do them justice. Still very WIP...

Planning... Because you can never have too many projects on the go at once, amiright?

Rackham Goblin Pirates that have been sitting in my to-paint box for about a decade, and a 1:50 Revell Viking Ship that my wife bought me for my birthday a few years back after I kept insisting that we should replace our car with a long boat... (It seemed like a good idea at the time)

Was guild of harmony a game? Just looked up the models and the website seems to be broken and all but a few models out of stock at CMoN.

It still is - sort of - and it is an awesome Skirmish Scale game - now called "Twisted" by Demented Games and can be seen here:

https://www.dementedgames.com/

That is, if that's what Insaniak was talking about...

...but maybe not, as I love the range, and don't recognize that model:

https://www.dementedgames.com/collections/guild-of-harmony

So, even if it isn't, check out this game - it's really, really good!

Some digging seems to indicate that GoH was the 'before' to the Demented Games that is the 'after'...

Sort of... Sebastian Archer is the sculptor behind Twisted/Demented Games. Guild of Harmony was the brand name he originally released his own sculpts under, some years before Twisted came along. Most of the GoH models sadly appear to be OOP, and the Guild of Harmony name has been recycled as a faction in Twisted.

So, I realised last night that this thread has somehow been going for ten years now.


A lot has happened in that time. 10 years ago, I was doing commission conversion work and selling bits on eBay. When I needed a change from that, I moved to an office job that lasted considerably longer than I had expected, and towards the end was literally sucking the life out of me... and now I'm working for Spiral Arm Studios, doing all sorts of interesting things for Maelstrom's Edge. Along the way in there was a wedding, two kids, a couple of house moves, and all the other stuff both awesome and not-so-great that life puts in people's paths to see what happens. And somehow, after all that time, Wazdakka is still sitting in my work in progress box...

With all of that, this thread has turned into a bit of a sprawling monstrosity, and I apologise to anyone who has wandered in later in the piece and is wondering what the hell they've gotten themselves into. So this seems like a good place to retire this thread and start over with something fresh. There will certainly be plenty of new projects coming up to keep things ticking over, and to get the new thread started I have my Guild of Harmony lady, the long boat, and my Terra Firma pattern Repulsor, a raft of planned Maelstrom's Edge projects, and if time allows, Wazdakka to finally finish off.

Many thanks to all of those who have followed this thread over the years! See you (hopefully) in Chapter 2!

As long as Chapter the Second continues a meandering path across a bunch of stuff all will be well.
