Thanks.

It's been a slow week for me modelling wise. But hopefully will pick up soon.

Got another trade in the mail. (Some scouts and a techmarine)
I went out in the freezing cold temps today and grabbed some supplies.

Some Sheet Styrene for converting supplies, along with some primer, and some milliput 2 part epoxy putty to attempt some sculpting. Hopefully its similar enough to GS that it will work.

From what I have heard, it works just as good, if not better, but then again that was in a differing area climate-wise, where we could just open a window and the 110 degree heat either helped the curing or melted your mini.

Ok... trying to get off my butt modelling wise.

I broke out the big brush, and got to work on some vehciles that were sitting around.

Not too exciting, but points wise, if I get everything here done progress wise, I'm in not too bad shape for fielding a legal tabletop army, with a few marines swapped around.

I'm not too keen on using Tamiya paints on miniatures, but I totally understand when it comes to costs. Your Tac squad looks good when its grouped together though, and the Chaplain looks pretty hard core too - nice head

What kind of basing will you be going for? For me its all about basing, brown or rocks would compliment your colour scheme I think.

Get that 1000 pts done!

WHats your problem with Tamiya? They've been around for ages and are great to work with.

Once I have n airbrush, they have a great range of colors, for fairly cheap.

I guess paint is a "YMMV" thing.

I have been a lazy wolf this past week. Work, lack of sleep etc. But even on my days off, I just could not get inspire to work on my models.

Hopefully todays arrivals will help out.

More Heavy Support



Wheels for a Tac Squad




Termie Shoulder Pads... Though I'm not sure how I'm going to get these to work with AOBR termies... It may require extensive surgurey.




Hopefully tomorrw will bring some progress on the heavy support front.

Nothing major planned. Its a trade, and it appears to be missing some parts. (Vindy crane and ammo, hatches etc...)

I should have enough hatches and accessories in my bitz box to finish him off. Also going to use some spares to create a Rhino hatch of my Razorback... I just wont glue the rear hatch on so I can pick and choose.

That would give me the follwoing vehicles:

2 Rhinos (1 RB possible) (Tac Squads)
1 Predator
1 Vindicator
1 Whirlwind (Rhino possible if I can come up with a rear Hatch)

Yeah... I see what you mean. Although IH and sucessors get to KB a bit more than most. Lots of bionic bits.

And I've got a bit of a primer buzz going on.

Just hit the vindy with a coat of Krylon. Loving it. Great, fine primer for about 1/3 to 1/4 of the price of the GW crap, and the Krylon can comes with a nifty adjustable nozzle. Would totally recommend anyone switch to the Krylon primer. Great stuff, signifcantly easier to control how much you overspray due to the nozzle.

You should be able to use a hatch from a rhino if you have any spares. They are all the same really. If you really want the ammo loader thingy, you pay the postage and I'll send one. I dont like em, so I dont use em.

Thanks for the offer Whalemusic, but I'm not set on having one. Not sure about the wisdom of having large cannon shells flaoting around on the outside of armour. :-P

I should have some extra hatches in my bitz box.

TBH, things will probably be slow untill I hit my midnight shift as I just installed World Of Tanks, and its freakin' addictive. I get to satisfy 2 cravings blowing stuff up and running around in cool looking WW2 armour. (I've said before, my Dad used to be a military modeller, and I grew up with books of WW2 tanks all around the house.) Modelling wise, I find military modelling too restictive.

New Vindicator? We're twinsies! I just picked one up today on eBay. I know it's not the most "Nurgle" vehicle out there but after having my ass handed to me one too many times recently by IG and Orks alike I'm going to add some scary firepower to my Heavy Support. If nothing else they'll spend their time trying to blow that up instead of my Land Raider or Dreadnoughts. Ha.

Looking forward to seeing how you convert yours and fill in the missing parts. An that whole motivation thing... I had it knocked out of me a while ago but it comes back. Taking a break for a while actually helps I think. I felt like it was wasted time but when I came back to it I got more done with a "fresh start" than I ever did with a 3am "second wind".

In any case, do what you feel like doing. It'll all come together.

@ Skalk... The vindy is going to be pretty much stock. If I can scrape up some $ for the CHS sheilds, I might grab a few of them for vehicle iconography, but at $2 a pop, that can get pricy quick.


I've been more than a little sick this past couple of weeks, and haven't gotten anything done. Hopefully I can get back on track this week. I was hoping to have a playable army by this coming weekend. We shall see. I might be able to scrape together a 1k point force.

LOL....

He had 1 Autocannon using marine that deserved a sniper medal. Took out a dread and a predator. The plasma marine from that squad got eaten by his plasma gun.

Other notable moment... My vindy got its main gun destroyed... so in a WTH moment, I attempted to tank shock a pretty close to full strenght unit of CSM. It worked. :-) Tehy regrouped next turn, but it delayed them.

Ok, sorry folks, but due to various real life concerns. (Namely being out of work for a bit... waiting on Gov't paperwork...) this is on hold for at least a month or 2. Same thing with any stuff that I said I would send out, and if you never got it. (Mainly to Gits, if he reads this).

Very sadface to not have any cash to even get out of the house right now, as the new GKs are super sexy. and I'd love to at least get a box or 2 of them to mess around with.
