There's more Knights coming. I have to finish the last questoris class - Another Gallant with two Power Axes. Build the last Castellan, an Atropos and 4 Warglaives!!

The Taro stuff is great. The quality of the resin is nice and the details are fantastically smooth and crisp. There's hardly any mould lines or flash to clean up too. It's seriously good stuff. The bloke is a nice chap too!!

I managed to get a bit of painting done last night. These are still massively WIP with only the base colours done. I still need to highlight everything, add the details and, yeah, lots.

Well, this is a blast from the past! This army stalled ages ago because my last pot of Jade green went 'weird'. Somehow, I came into the possession of two pots of Jade green so, to celebrate, I'm seeing if I can finish off the last parts of this old Marine army! What better way to kick start it than with a Leviathan Dreadnought I still have to finish the weathering and do the base.

"Somehow" you got more Jade Green? Sounds like a story there. Maybe one you wouldn't want the police to hear.

They didn’t need the green anymore. Or any of their models.

No. No there isn't. No story at all and nothing to see. So move along.


Thanks for the comments guys. No update yet as I've been doing 13hr night shifts since I last posted. I have a week off next week so I'm planning on getting some more bits finished. Namely vehicles (2 Predators and 2 Razorbacks)

Had an itch to crack open the plasticard for a few days and last night I finally found the time (between painting Marines). What do you guys think?

I commend you sir, great work at such a small scale. Even Marines will need fuel tankers in 40K.

Now the Transports are done, I've started work on a Merchantman (Light cruiser sized transport). Still massively WIP but happy with the mornings work!!

I love that Leviathan. I am a big fan of black and white checkers, and the green manages to have real depth of colour without extreme shading and highlights. Really beautiful.

The knights are gonna look great too.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Thanks mate, I love checks and hazard stripes on Marines and just about anything really. Glad you like the green, in all honesty it's just a basecoat, shade and a single highlight. Same for all that army.

Of course they're original The little Resin transport ships I created ages ago in plasticard and had cast up. I had 5 left over with the intention of making a few more patterns. The Merchantman is just a ship out of the BFG:XR rules for Rogue traders. They're awesome little ships.

More progress. It's almost finished, the only thing I have to do now is finish the little eagle on the front. I'm also making a Voss style prow for it as well but that's only just been started!





   
Made in gb
Confident Marauder Chieftain





In the Loft

Finally done. I re-did the Eagle prow and have done a Voss prow as well. Not sure on the winged skull to be honest, but that's probably because I suck and sculpting skulls. I just wanted something different. What say you? re-do it or leave it?

Yes mate, providing no one has any objections I'll send it off to be cast up tomorrow.

Thought I'd grab a deal off Facebook and grabbed two metal space stations for £30. Unfortunately one of them was really badly cast (apparently it is genuine, I'm still dubious). So action had to be taken and it ended up being a double station! Kinda works I think even if it does look like a Burger. (Burger Station 1)

Paint job took me an hour. I think most of the time was spent on the yellow system ship hah.

You need to paint some tau drones brown and put them above and below for it to look like a real double stack . Nice job though on the painting.

Why yes,Yes I do Mr Phony.

I had an old miscast Conveyor that has been kicking around since the very first batch. It was a bit knackered after I let my little'un play with it and paint it as well.......... but it was still workable and after some TLC turned out ok I think. I had an idea about a more rounded prow with a little flight bay on the underneath as well. Also changed the 'Mass Pods' to ones more like the art work.

The conversion and paint job is a bit of a rush job. I did it all today.

Right, been touching up some of my old Voss ships. Nothing major, a bit of neatening up and I removed the Lances for launch bays. Not before I added magnets to everything though so I can swap the weapons. I also spruced up my Battleship with magnets and a little more effort into the paintjob.




Also managed to get through 12 out of 18 falchion escorts. I've always hated that narrow mid ship corridor thing. So removed it. Kinda like it. They look gooty, stubby and pretty low tech. Perfect for my fleet really




I've had the majority of a battleship kicking around for ages. It's missing the front section and I had been hoping to pick one up on ebay at some point. Alas, none have appeared so I have decided to bite the bullet and make the missing part. I have now realised how much work is actually involved in doing this and wish I hadn't started :( But, I have started. And I WILL finish it. Dammit. Gonna go for a more armoured up Voss style prow. Basically a scaled up version of the Falchion escort prow.

Thanks guys.
The Merchantmen will take a couple of weeks to cast up. Once thats done and I get my hands on them I'll be sure to let you know

What's next for the Plasticard treatment? Grand Cruiser? Also toying with the idea of remaking my Dreadnought in Plasticard - but that's a massive project.

I hope you're sitting down. PAINTED STUFF!

Finally, finally, after about 2 years. I finally have started my 10000pt Gothic fleet. First up is (part) of the first Battleship squadron.

Divine Retribution (Retribution)
The Taranis (Terra class) &
Emperor's Hammer (Retribution)





Also, progress on the Battleship replacement front. Not sure where to add the Torpedo tubes. Help!!

10,000 points! Bravo

The custom stuff you've been making is really nice, and keeps reminding me how much stuff the community has made for BFG in GeeDub's absence - including a ton of 3D print stuff (which doesn't compare to your scratchbuilds and casts, IMO). Thanks for keeping the tiniest grimdark dream alive.
