And a theCrowe exaltation too! Cheers!

Thanks for all the kind comments on the terrain, it’s a really cool set and frankly did most of the hard work for me. I’ve made a start on the rest, of which there’s a LOT! Quite a few pieces have only a subtle colour so I went up and mixed some dark grey and turquoise together the do that and batch dry brushed all of the remaining pieces. I probably should’ve spent more time making sure there was a better coverage of the black, but I was too keen to get cracking so only patched up bits where it was obvious. I then started the OSL on a few pieces that will end up with the pale turquoise finish. That was a good few hours of dry brush action so called it quits here



It’s a bit too turquoise right now but hopefully when I add the white it’ll get closer to the tiles. Plus I think it’s the pink and lightning that worked so well on the first batch to tie them in with the boards.

Sorry for the dull update, but thanks for looking

Yep, there sure is! It’s a bit too daunting to pick up mid week, glad you liked the in progress pics

Ha! I see what you did there Olthannon!

We had our sofas and carpets cleaned today, so nowhere to sit but the office tonight. Rather than turn my laptop back on I thought I’d sneak in some hobbygime. As I mentioned above, the terrain was too much to pick up mid week, so I decided to stay up late partially fixing my attack bike. It was really shoddily assembled, with way too much poly cement! Thankfully I could mostly get it apart, the gunners torso and right arms being the main casualties. I think I can rescue them with a replacement shoulder and some GS though. I’m not sure what size base to use for it, poss a 60mm round?

I also found a couple of odd backpacks in my bits haul, but I’ve no idea what kit they’re from. Do any of you guys know?

Thanks for looking

The backpacks are Grey Knight interceptor backpacks from the strike team kit. They're fancy jump packs that let you teleport. GW actually doesn't provide the attack bike with a base, but they are most commonly based on 60mm. I remember the Battle for Vedros version of the attack bike kit had it on a 60mm round, and I think the standalone bike was on one of the new ovals, so I would say it's probably a safe bet that's still the "correct" base size. Hope this helps.

Edit: Also, for what it's worth, if you get any rhino-based kit and don't assemble the tank commander, you can use the torso and gunner arms from that sprue as a replacement for the attack bike's.

2nd Edit: Looked it up. I was wrong, attack bike went on an 80mm base.

I do not envy you having taken that ebay rescue bike to bits Gobert, but it looks like you have done a thorough job.

Totally agree with basing it as well, smaller vehicles like the GSC Ridgerunner and Primaris Marine Mario trike look much better on a large oval, no idea what size the attack bike would look best on though.

Thank brushcommando! That backpack was bugging me as I’d seen it on here before, a teleportation jump pack sounds pretty awesome to me. As for the attack bike base I’ve found a 100mm Sector Imperialis inspired base stl that I can scale to 80mm to see what that looks like. I’ll fire up the printer tomorrow to find out. Cheers!

Nice bases sofar.

That’s what I thought but the wheels all hang over the edges so I’m going to try 80 or 70mm

Yeah, it was one of those low ball bids you don't expect to win but sometimes do! It’s made me question buying pre-“loved” vehicles in the future! Still I’m getting there and it looks a whole load better now than when I started.

It’s another F1 weekend so hobby time whilst watching Quali was on the cards tonight. Sadly youngest daughter was up with ear ache so I lost a good hour or 2 to that. She seems ok and eventually managed to get back to sleep.

Anyway, back on topic; I carried on with the Attack Bike eBay Rescue project instead of BSF terrain. I’d made a cast of a Heavy Bolter magazine from a Chaos HB I found in my recent bits haul. It came out pretty well so I trimmed and filed its imperfections then got out the GS/milliput to fill in the gaps for mounting the standard ammo can, which turned out pretty well for someone a useless at Sculpting as me! So to capitalise on that success I repaired the top of the gunners hips that had been damaged taking him apart. That wasn’t quite as easy, and ended up a bit shoddy, but it should be hard to spot when he’s done. I finished up the session trying to get this arms in to roughly the right position with reasonable success.

Once I’d done those bits Quali was over so I dived in to my PCs stash of stls and sliced up a few shoulder pads and helmets to go with the base. With the setting I’m using they’ll take 12 hrs so I’ll set them going first thing in the morning.

Thanks Viterbi, it’s been quite fun on the most part. My daughter seems ok this morning, so hopefully it’s passed.

With it being so late last night I forgot that I played some Space Marine Adventures with my eldest on Friday night. We tried our hands at a campaign where you play the levels one after the other. We made it through Level 1 easy enough, but the Necrons all spawned around the console and then Space Wolf struggled to activate the console (you need a 6) so only the Ultramarine managed to get out so we lost. It was probably for the best as my daughter was starting to get tired. Here’s a pic of the first level

Yeah it’s been a bit of a doozey alright! The filler on the gun cleaned up ok so I called it done. Fingers crossed the little one is through it now.

Well, I had grand plans to do lots of hobby this evening, but ing hell! What a crazy race the F1 turned out to be! I was pretty much glued to the screen for the duration. Luckily I didn’t literally glue myself to anything, instead I finished the bike and cleaned up some 3d printed bits.

The gunner got a printed assault squad shoulder pad, though I’m not in love with it as the cross isn’t very pronounced. The bike also got an 80mm Sector Imperialis like base (thanks brushcommando, that seems to be the right size!) which has the opposite problem to the shoulder pad in that all of the detail is about 2-3 times as pronounced as the official ones. I might have to reprint it if I can slice the top off on my computer and make it thinner. I also trimmed and fitted the purity seals, one on each marine and one on their mount. I think they look like they might be flapping in the wind, what do you think?

I think that once the bike is on and it's painted, maybe add some rubble, the base will be fine. Does it look all that off next to others?

I agree with youwashock, a bit of sand or other basing material will get in all the nooks and crannies and it'll look great.

Good work getting the attack bike all squared away again. Its nice seeing ebay rescues, it's like getting an animal from the shelter haha.

Ha! Yeah I had whiskey soaked cotton wool in my ears as a little’un. Whilst the rescues can be time consuming this one has been quite fun and rewarding see how well it looks. Sadly my printer shoulder pads look shoddy once primed so I need to sort that out. Hopefully I’ve got enough pads now.

I looked up the Dakka Rescue Shelter thread, thanks for the tip! I rarely lurk outside of the P&M blogs section so I doubt I’d have found it otherwise. Cheers

No progrsss on the bike this week, but I picked up the dry brushes tonight and got on with the Blackstone Fortress terrain I printed. Nothing special on these ones just dry brushes OSL in light turquoise with more and more white added to bring it up to a bit of a glow.






This one’s probably the most disappointing print as the game tile has a big skull on it, but the print is just a bunch of teeth.
The light source on this one’s supposed to be coming from the floor, but it’s a bit hard to tell… probably because i forgot at one point and went the other way!






This one surprised me how well it matched the tile, all the others are either a bit too blue or green.





The last one seems a bit of a compromise, missing some of the details like the drill, but it’d be pretty hard to play on if it were present







Doing these 4 was much more manageable than the whole lot, so I’ll continue this way, pulling a batch out and getting them done. Hopefully I’ll be able to match the colours better doing them together if they match.

Whilst putting the minis away I also had a play too



So there you go, quite a picture dump. There’ll probably be more of the same tonight as I paint while I watch the F1 Championship decider (let’s hope for clean shenanigans!).

Sorry to hear you missed out on Ascension, it has some cool minis, in the cultists bunch. I managed to get all of the expansions apart from No Respite, but I managed to snag all of the minis I need should I ever get to play it.

Speaking of which I had a hankering to paint some black Marines, and the No Respite Plague Marines we’re looking at me funny. Not much progress as I was engrossed in the F1 Highlights (talk about unnecessarily controversial!) but painting good also takes ages, so here you go;

I do love the look of a Black Legion Plague Marine (Bringer of Decay?). In my Head Cannon, my Black Legion Marines aren’t really Black Legion, but instead are Fallen Void Panthers. Being Nurgle though I’ll add some gribbly bits, hence the test marine with Nihilakh Oxide on his Storm Shield. I’m not sure whether to go straight to the nihilakh or do an Agrax first, so he has another bit with Agrax on first

Short post tonight but thanks for looking!
