Not where I should be

So, today I restarted my entry for the LoER Comp.

Got some stuff....

There is a clear plastic container from a packet of Grapes, and some packaging from a toy from christmas...

Some hot glue and a few extra bits like cardboard and a yogurt pot.



Made a roller door..
#

Kitted out an interior...

Supposed to look like a electrical plant room type of thing...

And started to paint it...


Oh and I made a cardboard box...


Then came painting...

Got a bit carried away....

Made up some posters..


Painted the interior....



Sarge came by to inspect..


Painted the exterior....



Sarge had a look..


Added a little OSL...electrical effect..


Still got plenty to do, but chuffed with a days work...

Thoughts appreciated.

Dayum! As they say. That is magnificent!

It looks very used/lived in, between the graffiti and the rolled up hoses/wires and the box.. awesome. The screens work well and the arcing electrical bits up top are a neat accent. It's nice cozy little piece, something you'd just roll around in a wargame but in a skirmish game you could see a scuffle inside, or a sniper nesting on the roof.

That's excellent progress Cam. Great to see the sergeant swing by to make sure all is on the up-and-up. Box was a brilliant idea and I really like the way you do your monitor screens.

I really like the cardboard box. Overall this thing looks great. I can almost hear the buzzing of the electricity when I look at that detail. The posters are really great, too. Nice job.

Why is it that I like your hand painted posters and signs better than I would printed ones? Ah yes, they are better. Really nice work on those.

I'm baffled thought. That clear plastic...if it is what I think it is, how in tarnation are you gluing things to it?

Final thought. It wants a rat-hole in one of the walls. It reminds me of some places I've seen in certain large American cities in the North-east.

I wish that electrical effect was clear, then you could stick a blue led in the middle of it. Looks great though!

Not where I should be

Thank you all so much, still working on it, will be finished soon.

@ Red, Luck is the answer, I know that it does not glue easy, hot melt gun nearly melts clean through it, but with care that works, and superglue and Bi-carb is a good combo. Its holding at the moment so happy.

So I have been doing some bits this week just not that much, had a hell of a week IRL and it has been hard going, but....

Modified my sons Nerf gun, did a job on the internals, then gave it a lick of paint...


Next is a question, this is a very early wip, I am messing around with some ideas for a Nightstalker army for KoW, not really looked at it fully and properly, but from what i have seen I can make bases up of models and as long as the base is the right sort of size, it is ok. Obviously the models have to represent a large enough group, ..........well enough woffle, please can you tell me if this could represent a Regiment of Spectres....(very early sculpts...)






Thoughts please....

Jobs a good'un .

Thinking about it now, how cool would it be to make the bases have a little recessed bowl or something in them to put a tiny piece of dry ice in and then add a spot of water to it at game time. You'd get your Erie fog of war on the battlefield . Think I'll have to try that on some terrain at some point, maybe just a smokestack or a blown up vehicle.

Hah what a sweet nerf gun. Ehat did you do to the internals? Replace the springS with deadly no longer street legal after market super springs?

Specters looks like a grand start. In KoW base size is of chief import. Technically there's a minimum number or models per base meant to prevent confusion (the max size of the next size down +1, so 11 for a regiment, 21 for a horde, its in the book and online, as are dimensions for all unit types) but that's maybe a tournament concern at best. As long as your opponent knows what's what.

Looks like a great start, spooky.

Thank you all, very much appreciated.

Thanks Grim for clearing that up.

@ DrH Yeah I know, I asked me son what he wanted me to write, and thats what you get.




So Have managed a little work.....

Base...


And nearly finished (maybe even done) Spectres. Going to put them to one side and come look in a couple days. Feed back would help!.

Here you go...

The interior of the mouths, perhaps shade it much darker so that it stands in better contrast to the rest of the piece?

These are really awesome, and the fusion of skeleton and flowey ghost parts makes them somewhat unique. Often you have robed skeletons, robes by themselves, or totally ethereal things, but here we have semisolid skeleton parts within the ghost cloaks. Neat.

The ghosts look really great-- it's hard to believe they are handmade.

I also really like the power station thing from earlier, especially the electric spark thing on top. How did you make that?

Now showing Mantic dwarfs, painted for Vanguard!




Painting total as of 10/10/2019: 113 plus a wooden bridge and gnoll encampment and 36 pieces of Mantic scatter terrain and three fly holes and three farm buildings and a fire pit.

Thank you all for the kind words.

@ Josh Bit of wire from an old molex cable from inside a computer, Stripped bare twisted around and positioned, then a tiny blob of hot glue in the centre. Painted white then some blues then highlighted white. Hope that helps.

So had to get the comp entry finished, last wall was giving me a bit of an issue til inspiration struck, how about if I put outlets so you can draw power off?



And painted...


And the final thing, done as much as it ever will....





Interior...

More pics in Gallery.

Thank you for looking and your amazing support.

More Night stalkers coming soon...(first nipping over to my Orkishness blog to touch base with my roots....)

i wish you luck!

oh... forgott the nerf and the ghosts...

you are truly a man without fear... sculpting is now definitely something you need to put in your resume...

as for the nerf... what kind of paint did you use? regular acrylic or something more resistant? would be a shame to have it rub off...
cheers vik

Thank you sir.

Technical term Chocblock! Least ways that's what I call it.

And the Nerf gun.

Well I dismantled it completely, sanded down any markings, primed with HYCOTE Plastic Primer, then used my acrylics, then it's shiney because I gave it 2 coats of Acrylic Clear Lacquer from Halford (automotive parts shop).

Mods are, removed the air restrictor, and the rod bit at the front that goes up the darts. Also put a stronger spring from another broken Nerf gun in, It's just stronger, no idea by how much. Made some heavy darts for it, and now the blooming thing bruises me when he shoots me. ( which the little bugger does regularly)

No signs of ware yet, after several days of heavy wear and tear.

Next in progress Nerf is a Longshot, going to go a bit crazy and make it look full sniper mode, upgrades to the mechanics and barrel and going to have a go at making it bolt action.

Don't worry though thats a side distraction, models comes firstist...

O.O a longshot sniper conversion...damn...that will be spectacular!

and yep...car spray is probably the way to go for making things last!...
if i was the mek ...which i am not... this would be a cool thing to be able to mod nerfs...i know we have a nerf modding shop here in berlin even... but i am too noobish for this^^

chockblock...hmmm...saved in long term memory...hopefully^^...we call it L├╝sterklemme...as it is often used with lights...room ceiling lights...which an old term is called L├╝ster
