A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...

Some detailing on the building that houses the power unit. Door is a wee bit small for a Goliath, but then again, I doubt they would be the ones servicing this...

Have also started a new base for the whole piece. The pumpjack will be on a raised concrete plinth, with the well head at ground level - plan is to have a fence of some kind around the edge of the concrete plinth (safety first...), with some steps at the rear to access the building

That looks great Briancj. Very realistic with all the debris and trash strewn everywhere.

After a busy weekend and terrible weather last weekend I have mine primed and drying as I type. Won't get to paint it this week but hoping to be done in two weeks

@boundless: That's great to hear you're so close to done, keep up the good work!

@Graven: It's great when you can really get in a groove like that and crank out something great. He's going to love it

I have a small trough to add to the side of the stables, and need to finish up the remaining corners. After that she's done. Doors are on the gatehouse, buildings are painted, stables have straw....

Hello all! Really looking forward to seeing the end of this. I do not envy you Syro for having to judge this.

I've started slapping some paint on mine this weekend. Literally slapping paint! This is going to be a lesson for me in washes but I really hope it will come off well. The fact it's so alien I think I can get away with it, and I already like the overtly comic-booky feel that's going on. Anyway, this is probably the last picture I'll share as I don't want to ruin the end result:

Thanks boundless, I don't envy myself either When I won the last contest I didn't think being a judge would be nearly as hard as it is, despite all the warnings from past judges. Everyone taking part certainly isn't making judging easy, which is a good thing. I always enjoy the creativity you show in your work, I think everyone else here on Dakka feels the same.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...

The looming deadline has me worried ... So, I'm going to put my hand up and ask for an extension,I reckon I'm about 2-3 weeks away from completion at my current pace (which is, tbh, sloooow )

I did manage to gt the handrails soldered together though, so there is proof of life on my entry

I really should take some finished photos of mine, hopefully in the sun, as we actually have some now.

I'm gonna join Ruglud in begging an extension... I've made almost zero progress for ~3 weeks due to holidays and work commitments.

Only if you ship me a crate of Stowford Press, Lillie’s Stargazer, Aspall Imperial Cru, or other good English cider. Sigh... American cider is all sweet and icky.

Being that this is a LoER comp, I'm of course willing to extend the deadline a bit. I can't extent it all too much, or I wont be around to judge and send out prizes though. How many others feel they could really use an extension?

Even though I have finished. I Dortmund an extension.

The most I can extend it, and still have time for judging and to prepare and send out prizes would be 3 weeks, so the new end date would be end of May 21st, a Monday so right after a weekend. How does that sound to everyone?

Also no worries Bob, feeling under the weather really throws off wanting to craft for me, I want to be able to think clearly when I'm working, so I totally understand.

Woks for me, thanks Syro... I was going to get some more done today on mine, but my washing machine has started leaking, so it's of for plumbing supplies instead. Life !!!!!

Plumbing supplies double as great terrain pieces ..... just sayin'

And, if this has been extended, then I may consider celebrating my return to Dakka with a small piece - seems rude to not join in current League shenanigans.... I'll consider what is viable and pass an idea on to Syro for confirmation if I think it's likely.....

Yes @monkeytroll!!! Your Cybork blog was one of the things that got me back into the hobby converting orks several years ago. You can't back out now, as far as I understand LoER posts are binding contracts

All praise the current Embodiment of the most Holy Rivet Emperor, or as the internet calls him, Syro_!!! Real life hit me hard this week and I haven't had a chance to finish the painting of my piece yet
