Thanks Dr H - as they say, no plan survives contact with the enemy

Also ty TerrainWalker- that was what sorta started off this build, I was looking for a use for those blasted bazillion left over 20mm square bases lol! I had been thinking like maybe dungeon tiles but I like this better

By spackle "going bad", typically yeah, it either a) molds, or b) simply dries completely out >< I should have thought to stick some plastic wrap in there - great idea! It's just not air tight is the issue (lousy seal on the lids)

I think I'm getting on the home stretch finally here- working on the water effects mostly atm, after that I'll be doing a light dusting of sand (weathering powder) in strategic places, then I think it'll be done =D

Yeah, I just give up on the lid ever sealing correctly and sealed it with the plastic instead :p I don't know if it's a flaw in the lid design or junk just gets all up in there but it never fails to leak air

What weathering powder do you use for a sandy look? I've been meaning to try some out but I hate buying them and not liking them so they just sit on the shelf forever unused

I actually have a set of FW ones, that I got bundled with their two painting/converting books (well worth it imo). You use so little, generally, that it goes pretty far

I know some people grind up chalk to use. And there are pigments you can just buy (as in to mix paint with) that are available but I've not bothered to look quite yet, as mentioned, I already have a bunch.

Anyway the Sand one I tend to use is actually the Bone Dust. They also have the Dark Sand, but as implied it's a bit darker (still more khaki tho)

Thanks Cam!

I am going to get out the lights here soon and take better pics of my best for the monthly painting contest but atm here they are "done":





As a reward for getting the Grots done I started working on my second Battlewagon =D








Started cleaning up these lil guys too - they are Sherman Chibi Tanks from GUTS and a good bit smaller really even than grot tanks would be, but I think they're adorable and I'ma convert em anyway





And I finally found the perfect Weirdboy model(s) for my army! When the new Fungoid Cave-Shaman came out I knew I needed to have him!! He's awesome and perfect for my army. I don't have any Weirdboys yet because I've never liked any of hte models before this. I also picked up the grot shaman because he also is cool, in case I need a second Weirdboy.

BW looking good. Love the wee tanks, really nice. Not take a lot to make them awesome.

Hear you on the weirdboy thing, and the second I saw that new grot I loved it, lucky you. Looking forward to seeing you work on it.

My next project was to weather my Battlewagon but as I had these Mek Gunz kits sitting here, I decided it'd be better to weather them all at once. And then,
because I can never follow a plan, I decided I need to use the left over trukk bits, from converting yet more Mek Gunz, were going to be used to make Skorchas (I still need to get some guns for a couple but I'm waiting til I have more hobby budget for that part)

Converted Mek Gun:

Really kinda annoyed with our weather it's waaaaay too humid to rattlecan prime :( And I have to clean up my mess of a desk to get out all my airbrushing supplies. Hopefully this weekend I'll find the time so I can actually get started on my buggies/gunz :( Also, hoping my plasticard order gets here so I can make some gun conversions for the skorchas.

Meanwhile, I did finish off the boy's DE reinforcemetns (Gangs of Commarragh box set). We'll probably be looking at getting him a couple flyers maybe, and some other stuffs but I am kind of hoping the codex will come out first, just so we don't buy too much/wrong things generally.

Working on the Fungoid Shaman as well, he's going to be my weirdboy (along with a goblin 'chanter).

Also discovered 7 more deffkoptas while I was unearthing my Iron Hands for SM month lol

I did some more work on my weirdboy model:



Also, started getting my Chibi Sherman Grot tanks ready for priming:



and almost done with my not SM Imperial Paw mouseling. Just needs a little touch up and a paw on his chest I think, and he's good.

Thanks Cam =D

We finally had a good day with low humidity so I could prime! (without dragging out the airbrush)

I got a lot of stuff primed super fast, just wish I'd had more built tbh.

I worked on some barrels from the Munitorium set, that are going in the Skorchaz I'm working on, mostly rusting them up:



And I got more of the colours on, over the metals of the Skorchaz. I just need to build a couple more gun bits, a gunner, add some tubing/pipes/hose type things and then I can do the weathering:

Did some more work on the Skorchas - painting is almost done, crew is done, working on a gun and a gunner and then weathering!






Also, did some work on my lil Weirdboy (mostly on the face)





And this bad boy came today! It's an old kit a friend of mine traded for that he was trying to salvage but gave up (had like 2 whole bottles of super glue on it, thankfully he removed all that) - it's going to be an Ork conversion =D Just not 100% sure yet, what. It'll prolly be a while before I can really start it too :( but looking forward to it!

I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do w/ that Baneblade. I have no doubt it will be a rolling heap of Orky junk awesomeness.

Thanks guys! I had to move the box to where I can't see it lol although it helps I have gone through a LOT of bits building my last few conversions as well. I'm hoping my plasticard supplies come in soon. Funnily enough I ordered on amazon, from a new to me seller, but apparently they're in UK so it's gonna take a bit to get my stuff in. Worth it though, the prices and selection was a lot better. (My closest local store with hobby supplies of that sort apparently closed o.O and the next closest is 2 1/2 hours drive)

Finished the gun painting last night! I need to pin it on the back end I think so it'll be more secure, but that parts done. I might eventually make a supa skorcha version, as someone on twitter suggested just since the gun's big enough... but that's another day! gotta get through my backlog so I can start puttering with the Beast (baneblade).




I tried to do some OSL on the gun... not great but it sorta works I guess



This side came out better I think:



Anyway, now to finish the hoses and get the weathering done and they're done!

once again thank you all Really had a lot of fun making and building these. I just finished the last licks of paint on them, so I started (and finished) weathering them all today. Hopefully, my next project will be my new terrain board here shortly.

Anyway, finished Skorcha pics:







I also finished my Battlewagon up, since it was really just waiting to be weathered (except its base is still in process):



And I finished a group of Luna Wolves, my poor neglected 30k army that I haven't worked on for forever:

My computer's been down (had to replace video card sigh) so I haven't been updating much, but I've been working steadily away at my projects. I got all my Forgeworld (Mechanicus) terrain together and primed. I also assembled my box of BaC to augment my Luna Wolves forces. I did some work on some DE for my son, who wanted Trueborn DE.

The group of them - they're from Sisters and Kabalite parts, fairly easy conversions, tho some arms were a bit iffy



And his leader:




Assembled Luna Wolves:



Also did the Razorbacks in the back there. They're probably going to be Iron Hand Rhinos, mostly - I left the turrets off so they can just be placed on, with a magnet to help them stay stabilized. I'm planning on adding them to my soon to be (TM) Ratticus Mechanicus army, to go with the Iron Hand detachment I'm working on, and getting some FW Deimos Rhinos for my Luna Wolves.

Yeah =/ I've a spare in atm, but it's not very good tbh. Still, gets me online ^_^

I still haven't managed to prime my Luna Wolves bleh.

I did get some of my terrain started anyway, I'm just getting pieces ready for when I start actually building my table.



This just a general use piece, I got on sale from Impudent Mortal, it's one of four. Really like thes buildings. Roofs aren't glued down so they'll come off easily.

And my sector mechanicus stuffs:





They're very basically just drybrushed and washed atm.

took a bit of a break and finished off a model I really want to throw in my Gremlin crew, Burt Jensen. Plus, he's a really cool, fun model anyway:










I don't know why but this guy screams runtherd to me...would love for my ork army

thanks Dr H!

sadly I won't be able to work on him much longer for a bit, heading to my sisters for a couple weeks. So he'll have to get done in October but the kit should hopefully be here by then too.

Anyway, just about forgot to update this with my new MANz unit (Kromlech Juggernaut) - only have 1 in progress atm, the other 2 are just primed. I was dithering about what weapons to give them til I got my xenos book but finally just decided to go for it and worry about it later. Planning on buying more MANz anyway - I do like the GW version too, I just wanted some variety and Kromlech orks are awesomesauce.

This guy is a bit further along than he is in this picture, I'm currently working on pinwashes and edgehighlighting as the contrast isn't as bright as I liked it in areas. Even with highlighting, which just seems to be blending in.






I love all kromlech pieces, been wanting to get a set of these to go along with their kan koptas I have. seeing your awesome work decided for me

Haha thanks =D

Burt is an insane model (really good in my list too!). He'd make a great runtherd - lots of fiddly thin bits though, be forewarned, if you do pick him up.

Kromlech stuff is sooo addicting >< omg I love their stuff so much. I have two other 'not' meganobz I'm working on too. Their resin is soo clean, hardly a mold line to be seen. I keep looking at it, thinking I see one, nope it's a tiny wire!

I have a bunch of their torsos I got for my war bikers, and some heads as well - not finished painting them either =/ but again, really cool stuff. Takes a bit of finagling (greenstuff) sometimes to use their heads with GW ork bodies, otherwise they're really awesome.

My computer's been annoying of late so I haven't been on it as much as my twitter/instagram. But I've been working more on my Luna Wolves, my Forgeworld Terrain and some of my son's stuff. Not much to really see at present, as it's been mostly basecoating.

First WIP of next group of Luna Wolves though:
