6 foot underwater

Gits - Afraid not..that's taken from my decking...mine isn't really a boat, it's a houseboat..similar to those behind but without the rooftop terrace.

Once my loan's paid off next year it's time to start thinking about real boats.
Mooring fees include adding boats to the three free sides of mine, so that's just a no-brainer.
Narrow boat would be great, a 40 footer probably, plus a small run-around/mini cruiser type thing....eventually.


weety - Close....but you can take out the large part


ldd - lucky I don't drink then....err apart from that little lapse the other week

Tentacles are just under the surface...you have to look real close.....



Since we seem to be on a bit of a flood/boat tip at the moment....




Honest, that's a field that is.




Coming back the other way....
Can't see mine, but basically the same as those.




That shouldn't be under water..water should be a foot or more under that




View across from my deck...I was standing on that quay last night....oh wait, you can't see the quay, it's under water...




And back to model related stuf....


Just to let you know now, there's no progress to show on anything, but plentiful supply drops in the last few weeks, some of which should be of interest.
That does hopefully meaning progress is coming soon...

OK, hold tight, here we go...scream if you want to go fasta...




General stock, grabbed some 'tile' sheets for a bit of variety, and some foam for more terrain work.




15mm apc from Antenociti's...wheels, bits and hull will obviously be going to different projects




Couple of AE Bounty guys from cipher designs...really like the first mate on the right, may end up as a Dredd figure




Some more gorgeous sculpts from McVey Studios...jetbike is lovely. May get some minor conversion, not sure yet, I do love the sculpts coming out of here. A metal geezer, and a couple of arms that the meks are squabbling over already




Always good to have some containers lying around...




...especially if they're full of stuff
AT-43 bit grabbed in the Wayland sale, been meaning to see what could be done with some of this stuff for a while. Got most of the actual piece apart without damaging too much, not managed to seperate the legs out yet though...still, got some funky bits there, interesting ideas are afoot...




Plastic Cryx set...looking forward to working with this stuff in plastic, and some Mantic Orx, which seem to be disguised as a VHS cassette




The orx marauders...not the best sculpts on the planet by a long shot, but in the sale I think this was like £3 for the 10 guys...I can work with that




The Cryx set:
Warcaster - bits for the chaos guys. Slayer warjack, 2 deathrippers and a defiler - lovely bits for the meks and chaos warpsmiths to fight over. And all emminently choppable....




Biker from Puppetwar...fair bit of clean-up required on this - pretty bad mould lines in obvious places. Will it go to Mega-City or to the mek-shop? 50/50 at the moment, time will tell...





Flyer from Puppetwar...much cleaner mould, nice detailing, nice little touches like the panel lines continuing on the pegs to hold wings in place.
Look at all those dakka options too...and magnets come supplied for easy swapping.
Nice job on this kit. Bits will be going to the meks, to Mega-City and possibly to the warpsmiths too...


And my Dreadball set arrived too. Let's do the whole unboxing thing hey...




Ahh, shiny new box...mmmmmm.
Shiny rule book, a ticket for a participation event and a signed print of the cover.




Rule book is nice quality, looks well laid out (although I've not read any yet, so might not be...), and lots of photos and pics.




Play board. Various other versions were available (mdf, acrylic etc) but I was more intereted in the minis than the game so didn't bother. May still try and get a game or two in over xmas though, that and zombiecide, should get some opportunities...




Stuff innit?





Roster sheets, card tokens, acrylic tokens and 40 odd hex bases for the minis. All looks nice.





One bag containg the MVP's - special characters from a variety of teams, plus a coach and a trophy.
Nice quality of detail, a bit of flash clean-up needed, but to be expected. A few of the poses look a little 'meh'. but as it's unlikely they'll be keeping the poses in several cases....




And the obligatory scale shot, ganger takes on one of the nameless.





One bag containing the Forge Fathers team. Dwarves. 10 guys to a team, 3 different poses. A few will become squats obviously, others not so sure of yet, not looking for a squat force atm, so...





One bag containing the Veer-myn team. Gas-masked rat-dudes. Some will be heading to the forces of chaos certainly, there's a few bits that may end up in the mek-shops.




One bag containing the Marauders team and the Corporation team. Orcs and humies, these are the guys in the basic box.




Corporation. Couple of right arm choices. Obviously multiple choices for these guys, Imp and chaos.




Marauders. Grots and orcs...think it's patently obvious where most of these bits will re-appear




Ref-bot and a couple of balls.


Not looked at the rules at all yet, though have seen a few good things mentioned around Dakka - downloadable rules have been available for a while.


Still to come for me:

Two more teams - robots and the nameless, those should be lots of fun to chop up.
Two packs of keepers - one set for the 4 teams above, one set for the robots, nameless and 2 others.
Pack of various cheerleaders.
Pack of various coaches.
Four large special characters, alien, nameless, robot and human/orc.



OK, that's it for now...who knows..there may even be new work to show next time...

Some overdue replies......

weety - Cheers, let's hope we get to see some action on some of those goodies....


Gits - This summer's project is probably replacing the decking itself, few bits starting to warp and loosen - sign to re-do the lot methinls....


vik - Can't help having water on the mind when you live on it How about if I get some old-skool pirate freebooterz on the go?


ldd - Variety is the spice of life after all dawg


graven - At the cost of getting on my bank manager's bad list Still, there's loads more KS goodies coming this year, all of which have been paid for so guilt-free goodness when they get here At the price I got them can't have any complaints at all...


lego - Gonna have fun when I get round to messing with them...

I suspect you'll get to yours well before I get to mine


neil - Cheers mate...yeah, liking the nameless, can't wait to get the rest of that team...


Skalk - You're not taking the toxicity of the water into account there though

Yeah, that was one of the things that always attracted me to the AT-43 stuff, lots of containers in the kits...


HAZ - Cheers dude, back from a break myself - no doubt there'll be more on your blog by now, I'll check it out....



Ok, bit of a break there.....christmas, work and personal life all got a bit complex.....little done - which seems to have been a common theme in this thread recently...ah well

So what's been going down...


Due to the ass-about-face I managed my pledges there was a bit of a delay with my Dredd KS goodies, however a mail to matt at Mongoose got things sorted and last week got a heavy ol' package with a bunch of goodies in:





Automatically Appended Next Post:
Buggerations - that was not supposed to be a press on Submit

OK...continuing..

Won't go into detail on the Dredd stuff here...think that's worth starting a new thread for now...I'll let you know when it goes up...


Also grabbed a bag of trim from Grandt Line on dstein's advice....




Cool bits and pieces, useful for more than just terrain at a quick glance...


Was involved in the DCM Secret Santa organised by graven, which was a load of fun...my Santa turned out to be Arakasi, and I got some lovely stuff in my package....





Lots of cool goodies as can be seen...fun to be had in all sorts of places...
Before it had arrived I'd set myself a challenge of building a mini using just the bits from my Santa package. And so that became my first project for the year....let's hope I can actually complete it this year hey

Looking through the bitsfor a while gave me a few ideas, some of which I felt neded some extra bits to do them justice. After a bit of mulling I had a couple of concepts I liked though....



First up was a cyboar...not progressed far on this one yet, in the short hobby times I've had I was working out which bits were needed....
Pretty sure I have the rider sorted, but want to wait till I have the boar body sorted to make sure he still fits....
The plan is to have the dakka attached to the armour plates, and rather than going for some robotic limbs/wheels/tracks I'm going for an anti-grav unit to replace the rear legs....

So far the body's from a lion, head from boar and eye from part of an elven standard....the grav-unit will be based on a beakie jump pack and part of a termie so far....

Obviously I'm allowing myself to use GS too






Next up was a shoota boy for the cyborks.
Body from a boarboy, left arm from an old metal stromboy, right arm from boarboy and two FW bolters, with the cable coming from a servo-skull.
Legs from a black orc, head came from a termie arm and a boarboy....job's a good 'un. Just need to decide on base (plenty of basing goodies in the selection) and ready for some colourin'.





And whilst getting back to grips with some modelling today figured I could do this little geezer too...more for the chaos dudes, but I'll throw him up here as there's nothing else to go in the spiky direction just yet.
Gobbo body with the head cut out, arms from Mantic elves and flaming torch from a horses tail...quick and easy

That's about the size of it for now....finger-claws crossed there'll be some more soon....

graven - good to be back, and hopefully get some stuff done Really want to try and finish these three before jumping off to other guys as they're the secret santa challenge I set myself


ldd - Cheers! If you paid more attention to reading rather than deciding which orkmoticons to use you may have noticed the head was a termie's shoulder and a boarboys's jaw

He's on wires to make it easier to paint without putting my grubby fingers all over him


Dr H - Thanks doc!


Ok, little progress, but let's show it anyway, try to keep this rollin'

No more colouring done, but the shoota boy has ben undercoated - no pic as a pure black ork ain't much to look at....


So the cyboar:




Lost the rear end so the hover gubbinz could be attached...
Termie torso, which fits reasonably well, jets from the jump pack and part of a killa kan underneath, shoulder joint I think. Once it's all been gs'd to blend in I'll see if I want to gs some turbine blades inside the hollow.

Bionik ear comes from some bit of decoration for the elves...





Boarboy torso and legs fit reasonably well on the lion, and there's a bit of braided mane that will connect nicely to the boys torso as the control link.
Arm comes from a black orc with part of a kan's ccw as the choppa part, will probably be getting bionik slugga arm on other side, head will be boarboy head with my favourite GS bionik eye in place...

Short and sweet, that's it....

Gits - Cheers!


Arakasi - Well, only just started to be fair Getting three out just shows what a good selection of bits you provided....as I said I can see loads more, but really want some other bits to do those ideas justice......



HAZ - Thanks man!


graven - Red Boar, it gives you jet-packs


Llamahead - They never went away in my world


dstein - Cheers Dave, nice to be back, still need to check out what you're doing in your own little middle-earth. And thanks.

Well, in that pack I see weapon barrels, gun-sights, engine vents, wings, bioniks of various description, ,access panels, exhausts, armour plates, shields, wheels.....


vik - Yeah, been a few absences recently, have to admit. But thanks for the wb

Cheers, appreciate it

Well, if I forget something it's a nice suprise when I come across it again....tbh it's keeping track of where I've put each bit that's the issue....


So, what's on the menu tonight?

Few more bits came in from the Dredd KS, thought these ones could pop their heads up...



Couple of sprues of zombies, which will be heading zombiecide way rather than to MC-1 I feel.




Metal zombie bits, always useful, and a zombie judge...nice.




A few East-Meg judges....Booo.




And a sentenoid...the meks are converging as I type...



As to the cyboar...



Started GS work on his mane..




And started in on his dakka...ammo hopper from a beakie, part of a drill from a kan, and part of an exhaust from a trukk...


And that's it for now....back later...

Dead dreads look pretty cool, how good are the castings on them by the way Boar needs wings no seriously he is developing well the jet pack idea is hilariously cool, but what else would we expect from you and that demented mind of yours

The Dakka is nifty looking as well like the fact you kept the barrel short, most of the time they stick out to far IMHO, the only thing I would suggest (although I am sure you will any way ) add some fur texture to his legs as they look a little to lion esque at the moment.

ldd - Decent casts on the ones I've checked out, not been through all of them yet though... Minimal flash, no horrendous mould lines.

Well I don't mind large dakka, but as I'm limiting bits to those in the Santa box..... Yep fur texture to come...


Haz - Hopefully not as long as most of my builds in this case.....


Anvil - Yeeees, just don't know exactly what yet. Was originally considering wheels, but thinking hooves may be better, but might be of a slightly bionik nature...I suspect they'll be one of the last bits to get some work.


graven - Hadn't actually considered that....but am now, cheers




And just a couple of quick snaps...



Left dakka has had handle from the ammo hopper added, piston from the dread pk, and part of a melta bomb for rear detail...




Right dakka formed from beaky shoulder pad, part of the elven chariot yoke, trukk exhaust, gubbinz from the other en of a melta-bomb and skull from trukk decoration...
