Very inspirational, as usual! My one thought would be that the floor looks a little clean. A bit of detritus there, or a tiny bot or critter, might give the scene even more character.

Yeah, I did consider scattering some detritus around, but really wanted to keep this one simple.

Having said that, I've been playing a fair bit of Destiny 2 lately, and running around in the Arcology on Titan is really inspiring me to put something together that will let me really go to town with the clutter...

It all depends, is that is a leg or a gun?

Got some slightly better pics of my old 'Mule' cargo drone conversion - for those who didn't see it the first time around (I think it was in my old blog thread) this was based on a Maelstrom's Edge Hunter Warmech. Walkthrough here.

I absolutely love your treatment of the metal insaniak. It has just the right amount of dull grey, rust and shine to be totally believeable. Well done!

Thanks! I had a lot of fun with that one, and it's one of my favourite MEdge models to date...


Meanwhile, this week's article is a SPACESHIP!

Ah, so it WAS a leg!
I agree with Graven and Gitsplitta, the metal is looking great.

Thanks, guys. As I mentioned in the article, it wasn't at all what I had originally intended to do with that rodent ball... but it was a lot of fun to put together, and I love the retro feel to it.

For this week's article, I had another play with Coorshift paints, this time on a plastic Shadow Walker kit for MEdge:

That's one of the nicer Shadow Walker paint jobs I've seen. Looks proper assassin-like!

So, the universe might be broken... I needed to change the FEP film on my 3D printer, and couldn't find my spares. Looked for them on and off for two days, finally gave up and decided to order some more and just hope the old ones would show up sooner or later, and then found them right before I hit the order submit button...

That never happens.

Back at work on the Necromunda stuff. Trying to get back into the habit of doing some non-work-related hobbying of an evening, which has been tricky thanks to some ongoing health issues leaving me with no energy to spare by the end of the day... but, theoretically at least, I'm finally finishing these boys off.



Added some juves made from Chaos Marauders with a little height trimmed from their waist so they don't tower over the plastic gangers, and an oversized heavy courtesy of the new Goliath range. Now I just need to get some paint on them, and finish off the detailing on the rest of the gang.

New modeling article - somehow, in all this time, I had never got around to making a building using the MEdge terrain sprue and a tissue box... So here 'tis:

Always love seeing the old Necromunda lot, and the Maelstrom's Edge stuff as ever looking great!
