Thanks, part of the problem was I had no black tape, so had to use white stuff that's mainly for shrink wrapping so relies on being flamed to properly seal...

Thanks, it's mainly to give some colour options for back lighting, unfortunately, the white light photos as blue

Thanks, I've actually done a bit of work on the boat, got an angled front on it, but I keep forgetting to take photos...

So first up:

MOAR TAPE!
Still couldn't find my black tape so used yellow, but this time I put a few extra bits on it.
If it falls now, I'm gonna have staple it or something...

Finished painting the sump silos:




For the "liquid" I used the dark green foundation paint then lightly stippled a swirl or two of orange after that I stippled some tesseract green in swirls and then filled in the gaps with more.
The floating rust crust(?) was done with some lamian medium and white contrast, trying to blend it out towards the middle...
Quite happy with it and now I have an test for if/when I paint my sump boards...

Started on another tower:

I liked the SecMech platform I did earlier and wanted to do a taller one. Also wanted to integrate the ladder and add a replacement wall to save the ZM pieces:

(Ignore the Necrons, that's what I'm doing, even though I have only a week left to finish them...)
This is my result, I've added in a few bits from the marketplace set, cut the awning a bit so it fits in my grid limits.
Put a box and an offcut chunk to provide some support to the frame. It is not glued to the floor for modularity...

I then measured and cut up one of the fences to act as platform extensions to reach another platform.
That's it for now...

Thank you, trying to get more variety out of the ZM kit. I do use like 90% GW kit though but I'm trying to get away from that.

Anyways this month I've been struggling to keep up with a "unit a month thing", I choose the Necron warriors that I got with Imperium magazine and couldn't get into them...
But last couple of days I sat down and forced myself to get them done:

Not a great picture due to putting the finishing touches on them five seconds from bed...
But I didn't have a good time with them mainly due to not replicating my test colour scheme very well.
They are however easier to do and the colour shift is much more noticeable
Also finished me some Scarabs:

And changed up the glow on the Royal Warden:

I really like the Tesseract Greens fluorescent look and it feels more correct than the orange I was previously using
Now I have some breathing space to do what I like for a while, maybe I'll finish building the outcasts...

The green looks cool on the Necrons, green works well with purple I think. The lights and new terrain look cool, as for the new gangers

Thanks, but I'm half regretting it because I'm not sure how to translate it onto the bigger necrons...
gobert wrote:The green looks cool on the Necrons, green works well with purple I think. The lights and new terrain look cool, as for the new gangers

Thank you, I love the tesseract glow paint, I think I'm gonna need to find some more florescent paints...

Anyways onto what I've been up to...
First up some Ur Ghuls:

These guys were very simple, Dawnstone, Agrax, drybrush Dawnstone back on and a final drybrush of Celestra grey.
I chopped the slottatab into some pegs to pin them to the bases and then started using the LED strips to do some fancy lighting:


With those guys photo'd I started picking out random minis to have a go at, playing around with lighting colours and the settings on my phone:





Also finished up my Forgeborn and the single Stimmer I have left:

Redone base layers post wash

What I'm calling done

Better run, better run, out run my gun...

We can do it!

New kids on the block

Bigger is better...

Also did a small bit of work on my sump diver, couldn't find arms I liked so made my own:

Just sprue slurry over a wire armature

Bulking up

Final layer, gonna do a bit of sanding and carving when that's dry and maybe add some thing to it...

Then I got my Imperium magazines and received this guy:

He has a very blanchitsu vibe to the sculpt, and while its way out of my painting style...

...I've been trying to keep it grimey...

...And I'm happy with my results so far...
Most of the painting has been done with stippling and with less bright colours than I normally use.
Red is an old terracotta paint highlighted with the very red looking skin paint, (will update when I can check the paint labels)
All the lights where white and Tesseract glow, the brightness of the colours makes an excellent contrast to his robes.
Obviously I now have to replicate it on his arms and weapons now and I'm currently making a zone mortalis base big enough for him...
The official ones only go up to 40mm and I believe he needs a 60mm one...

See you next time for more fun!

The lights work really well at giving the Blackstone Fortress vibe. The Ur-Ghuls look great. I did a very similar scheme but yours seem to have a bit more definition, I might need to go a step brighter on the highlights.

Loving the Ad-mech dude. I think you’re hitting the blanchitsu style pretty well, and the tesseract glow gives a great contrast to the grime

Been a bit ill, massive headache and trying to read dakka dakka on tiny phone screen hasn't been fun which means I haven't been keeping up with peoples blogs very well, or my own for that matter...
Thanks for the kind words *squints* Gobert and Vertibi
Managed to do a bit before my partner tested positive for Covid, quarantining my hobby space, yay.
Presenting Dominus Amstrad:



I noticed his metalwork seemed a bit bright and the use of washes didn't really bring it where I wanted, so I ended up splodging some dryad bark on and wiping it off, sort of like how you do an oil wash with out sacrificing a paint brush.

Here's the base as it was after making it:

unfortunately I didn't take any WIP photos of it, but it was made form some left over bits from a ZM floor tile and a 60mm base with the top cut off leaving the rim. A lot of cutting and filing later the rim and the ZM bit were glued together with sprue slurry and then sanded for smoothness...
Not perfect but I'm happy with it...

Thanks,
Well now have finally joined my partner in quarantine, I can get back to some hobbying:
Got me some more base layers on some cultists that I started two years ago...
They'll probably be my unit of the month:

Just gotta get another brown layer on them and then they can have an Agrax wash.
Colours are just all the browns and greys I have for their rags and some Sotek green for the armour...

I've also been picking at the Outcasts kit for a while trying to make "civilian" Underhivers, for some reason I haven't put any pictures up:


And finally, a bit of work on my Sump Diver:


Stuck some green stuff on them to make some gauntlets, elbow pads and some folds a bit of sanding later should sort them out...

Thanks, I'm very happy with him myself, might have to repaint my two Skitarii to match him...

Any how been off with COVID so surely lots of time for hobby?
Turns out no, I discovered game called Tunic on game pass and that's been keeping my brain busy all week...
Did get a surprising amount done this weekend though...
Aside from a lot of catching up on Dakka Dakka plogs, I started smashing together bits out of my terrain box:


Not sure what I'm doing with these yet, just making progress...

Managed to finish off some cultists for March's unit:

Not quite finished as I ran out of painted bases so I fixed that while watch Babylon 5:


While waiting between layers on the cultists I slapped some paint on this guy:


It was not fun, the cast is terrible and undefined, maybe I'm just to used to modern stuff...

And finally, the Sump Diver:



Tried to copy the grubby look that Amstrad had with this one using mostly stippling, but switching over to regular layers for the visor..
I had a hell of a time trying to make it look as if they'd just come out of the sump and then gave up and settled for some splashes...

Untill next time!

Love the toilet! it may have been a pain to paint, but it looks pretty cool.

The blue and green on the cultists is really nice, they’ll look great on their new bases.

The sump diver looks great, you could hardly tell he wasn’t a bought mini. The shine of the green light adds a really cool effect as well

Excellent work on the diver and all the bits- I envy your productivity!

A possibility for motive power for your sump boat is maybe something I saw in Thailand where the sampans had a 4 cylinder car engine with a steering arm mounted to it and the whole weight of it was counter-balanced by a very long prop shaft:



Good luck with whichever route your choose!

Thanks, I think I may have to build something from scratch...

After all that catching up, here's this week's progress:

Finally started on my Tau hab domes.
I've had the parts for years now, and the concept for even longer, just some polystyrene hemispheres with some slightly naughty resin bits I had knocking around...
A bit of miliput for gap filling and then some spray mount glue and sand:

Left over miliput went into press mold:

I'm sure I can find something to do with this...

Next is some more zone mortalis stuff...

Finally painted another tile, this one with a sump corner, I actually finished this one with some additional stippling, splatters and bit of detailing, but forgot to take a pic.


Also got my platform tower done, forgot to take a pic of the top, but it's pretty much the same as my previous platform...

See you next time

The sump and tower came out really well. The tau mammary hab units should be cool when they’re done too.
