Thanks, friend is doing okay, they can't do anything strenuous for time being so perfect time to move house!

Anyways, due to helping with house moving, I've only been picking at things this week, mostly scatter bits from TT Combat:

I am slightly annoyed at the print lines on some bits considering that they're resin casts....

Plan is to clutter up an AW hab unit to make it lived in...

Also got a tent, not sure if I am going to use it for ash wastes:

But if I do I'll weather it up...

+++

There were some stumps and log piles included in my blisters that are definitely not Ash Wastes stuff so I made a campfire, primarily for D&D:

Just superglued them down onto to a sign board circle And covered the lot in Astrogranite...

Base colours, Dryad Bark for the logs and Steel Legion Drab for the earth...

Drybrushed Flayed One Flesh and copious amounts of static grass...

That's all folks!

Thanks, it's been a chore getting them painted though, they're almost too small for me to hold...

Not much done other than finishing my first hab unit:




Interior:


Quite happy with how it turned out, might try and add some pooled up ash to the top of the unit but I'm worried about ruining it....

Plan for the next hab unit is a toilet/bathroom block....
See you next time!

You’ve been busy Guardling, great job on the hab-unit. It looks very lived in, though I wouldn’t want to live in it . The floor finish is really realistic too

The completed unit looks excellent, I really like the contrast between the nice leather chesterfield and the grotty mattress

Amazing hub unit and the added stuff really makes them look inhabited. And the action shot actually gave me also a bit of The Matrix vibes with the chesterfield

Thanks all, not been up to much, life's being a bit much at the moment.
Some Stealth Suits are on the queue for unit of the month:

Other than that, I've just been picking at some Orlocks to get them all up to the same level of painting...

So scraped in the unit of the month, put the finishing touches on some XV25 stealth suits last night...
Presenting Delta Alpha Two ( at least I think that's what the tag is saying):

+++
In other news looking on Instagram made me sketch somebody else's idea:

That I then made a good attempt to build:


I've put some pipes and platforms on the curved surfaces so the there is somewhere for minis to balance...

+++
Went exploring small independent game shops around my city and picked up this guy:

Was labeled as a Gazer and looked similar to my Avi (geometric shape with tentacles), so didn't realize that it was an off brand Beholder until I built it, but hey, something new to do...
+++
Lastly some updated Orlock shots:



They're roughly the same level of painting now and I've made an attempt to give them all mirrored shades...

See you space cowboy!

The tower looks fancy, is it some kind of fixed gun? The sketch looks like it has a barrel and plasma coils?

I love how moody the orkocks look in their pics. The coloured lighting is a great addition to your scenery.

Thanks! Unfortunately this one is not going very fast...

Been a bit difficult to do anything lately due to the heat that seems to be bothering all us Brits, but I have managed to polish off a bunch of unfinished terrain...


Here's the plasma whatsit that I have stuck on its side for interest...
Had to chop off and replace the little nubbin on the top to get it to fit in my 3*3 ZM grid pattern.

Got lots of pics of all my terrain at the moment, like fifty pics,which dakkadakka is not going to enjoy uploading, so gonna have to ration them out.
On the bright side I'm probably sorted for Instagram posts for the foreseeable future...

+++

Onto the Ridgehauler...


It's been done up with an Orlock crew and their colours (sorry no red):




I wasn't a fan of the new guilders as crew, or their weapon systems for that matter so with a bit of hacking:

Was not an easy conversion, a lot of little cuts and checking fit and filling gaps just to get some contact points...
But worth it.
Just gotta get the navigator in there as well which is gonna be tricky, especially as I don't want to do the wrist mounted satnav...

See you next time!

Nicely done on the Ridgehauler, my second one is going to be an Orlock version so good to see it's possible to convert the crew.

Thanks! While it is possible to convert the crew, it's not easy, not very many surfaces touch without gap filling, on the bright side, because they're in such a small space, you can get away with some dodgy positioning ...
+++
Speaking of dodgy positioning...

Started working on a Navigator for my Orlock Ridgehauler.
Legs are from the Ridgehauler, torso is Catachan and arms are Orlock.
Idea is for them to be a Juvie earning the right to drive, so they're a bit smaller than the rest of the crew (in order to fit the space I have left in the cabin.
There's a young looking Van Saar head that I'm trying to put hair on but I seem to have lost my green stuff...
+++
Also some terrain pics:


These were made because I wanted to find a use for the doors I had from one of the Kill Team sets (Rouge Trader?) As well as not using up all my ZM wall bits...
The undersides of the flooring was pretty much carved out to make room for the pipes, should probably have taken some pics to show...
+++
On holiday soon so who knows if I update next week, but I still haven't started my unit of the month yet, I'm thinking Tau Pathfinders...
