Progress on the bloat drone.

Black washes about the metals and streaks from various damaged points, and verdigris on the brass.



That's the bulk of the colours done. Now to add all the little details and spots of colour.
And I should get around to painting the base before I get to the "messy" stage.

Edit: that picture looks horribly blurry to me in here. Click on it to see full size and (more importantly) clearer.

Looks fabulous Dr. H, they blend in great with the paint splatters on your desk too, either that or papa Nurgle’s flys are obscuring the pictures.

Thanks Graven'. True icky-ness will be achieved when I get around to the goo stage...

Thanks Theo'. That's the fun of wip/pip shots; leaves you all wanting more, and something for me to show in the final photos.

More progress:
Adding some colour with the cables,
Painted the bony / claw-y / teeth-y bits (although forgot the ones on the gun ),
And painted the base, gave it a white line to add some interest to the mass of grey, but blood and goo will also aid this.

I love that Drone conversion to begin with! And the paint scheme is effectively bringing out the twisted, Warped nature of the creature. Well done.

Thanks tinfoil, good to hear. And that is my aim; bring the vision I have had in my head from the start to reality.

Thanks Graven'. I see what you did there.

Thanks Shas'.

It is done. I can't see anything I want to change in the photos, so job's a good'un.

May I present to you the Foetid bloat-drone tripod in all it's glory.

Which config' would you rather face?


All the angles:


Close-ups of the bio-mechanical workings and the base:


And the magnetised weapon options:


And' that's it for the Dark Imperium box set.

This chap will be up in my Etsy shop soon...ish. Need to look at how long this took and decide on a price, and arrange the photos, and write the description...

What will I do next?
I don't know. I've left the building desk empty so that I don't get tempted to just flow into another project and avoid finding a proper job.
So I'm going to give that a push first (got a plan to write to the RSC for careers advice) and then I'll pull out some of the junk I have laying about and start using that up when I get stressed out with the job searching... so probably tomorrow...

Thanks for sticking around and watching my random projects.

Thanks Graven'. It loves you too...

It is now up in my Etsy shop. Click here!

In other news;
The plague marines have been "lost in the post" in New Zealand.

Apparently, it's standard practice for NZpost, when delivering to a business address, for their postie to deliver to a PObox and then a courier to take it from the PObox and deliver it to the business address.

Part of this process involves the courier signing for a package that is intended to be signed for upon delivery... let that sink in...

...the package was signed for, and the people at the address have not seen the package.

Luckily, my customer has laid the blame firmly on the postal service. I still get to keep the money (as I couldn't afford to loose that amount from my business), but I doubt I'll get any future custom from them (which was a possibility).

Say a prayer to Nurgle for the lost plague marines, "lost" but not forgotten.

Indeed. That's why everything I post is tracked and requires a signature (international tracked and signed comes with £250 of lost/damage insurance).

However, I have literally just got a message from the buyer to say that the package has just arrived!
Severely battered box (probably been in the back of a van for ~2 weeks), but all seem to be intact.

Thank you for your prayers in facilitating their arrival. Grandfather Nurgle is sure to bless you all.

Not where I should be

Nice work all round.

Always a massive worry when you send something away. If you mark it fragile it will probably be a football for some brainless idiot. I have had issues with just about every courier I have ever used. For some reason they insist on trying to damage every box they have. The extreme lengths I go to to package up stuff to try and make sure it arrives in some semblance of order is quite ridiculous.

But it got there eventually so guess it worked out in the end. Good luck with your current sales.

Thanks Cam'.

Yeah, I always get anxious while a package is in transit: Part of the reason I used tracked and signed, so I know where it is and when it gets there.

I always aim for over-doing the packaging.
Mini's get individually wrapped in bubbles, the box is lined with packing paper / tissue / bubblewrap, and the wrapped mini's are nested within.
Good, stiff cardboard box material is used for the box and I make sure the finished box has very little flex to it in any direction.
The result is often twice the necessary size to fit the contents in, but that gives plenty of "crumple zone".

I give the final package a good shake to make sure nothing is moving inside and then tape it up (with red and white FRAGILE tape).

I feel it's best to over-do it. The box can look like it's been used like a football, but the interior hasn't been touched.

Still, a glowing 5/5 star review for that one, and this week someone bought the Forklift.
