Sorry, no servo arm breakdown. Work is a little bit mad at the moment with this Nurgles Rot that's going around.

Not much of an update. Just spraying really.

This is the board so far. I need one more building in there which will be conected to the Guilder building by a walkway. I just have no idea what to make...





Computer room! I have another two of those resin computers on their way. I was gonna buy a load of the orange ones but the 3D printing on those is pretty rough so those will be the only ones I get :/





Going to go for a white/bone interior to the Guild house. Although it will be suitably dirty.





Warehouse, yes, it's still WIP (has been for about 2 years!)





So....Ideas for the next building? Told you I had a few left over!

Right, got some work done on my Pit Slaves. Just the yellow and flesh done. There is another Techno, a Pit Slave and a Pit fighter coming.

Thanks mate. The Flesh is a base coat of Tallarn Flesh (old GW) and bestial Brown (old GW). This was then highlighted up with Rakarth Flesh and then white to this. Mixing as you go. The Scars was just a very light wash of the same mix and Khorne red. hihlighted with Rakarth and white.

The Yellow was Bestial Brown and Yriel yellow. Then just mixing more Yriel and then white for the harsher highlights.

I'll get some close up pictures later.

Got some close up pictures of them for you. Not much done to be fair, just the grey although now I look at it it needs another highlight! Got some lenses and highlighted the metal on the techno.Oh! and stubble!

Nice to see pit-slaves still rocking the place.

Good work on the flesh - and the stubble

Thanks! Pit slaves was a random choice. My Goliaths got lucky and ended up with some seriously good territories (I was getting 95 creds after each game) so, to balance out, I went with some out laws

Almost there. What colour, if any, shall I do the Techno's weapon and cables to his left arm?


What colour shall I do his pistol? Leave it metal or go for something a bit more vibrant?


Bases done! (as well as the black, leather cables and other little bits)


EDIT: Also, should I add blood to the weapons???

Love all of those bulkhead buildings. I have loads of them too (120+) that I ought to use. Getting some good ideas from yours.

Check out the faces on those pit slaves! I've seen those minis for how many years now but never appreciated the sculpts' character. Great job bringing it out, and really dig the clean paint throughout the crew.

Nice work b! Oh how I miss making scenery! I've not the storage these days but It's great stuff you have there. Intelligent and sensible building design yet ideal for play. Not often both of those aspects meet so neatly!
Oh, and yes a bit of goreno on the pitslave weaps wouldn't go amiss. Forget citadel bftbg though... Use tamiya's clear red x-27. If you apply it neat and let it dry it creates a nice neat flowy blood. However if you slap it on thick and let it start to dry, then stipple it to disturb the drying surface it goes all gloppy and stringy which looks outstanding as gore on a chainblade! It's creates releastic runs of blood down a model too if applied correctly. It's actually a varnish/glaze I believe...

Thanks guys!

The faces on the pit slaves, and Necromunda models in general is great. The detail on the older metal GW miniatures is fantastic in general. It's why I like the older ranges. They just have so much more character than these new plastics.

Well, I'm lucky that I have the space now! I have my man cave (an old stable!) and could have an 8ftx4ft table if I wished. I just have one of those 6x4' mats though but in the grand scheme of things I would love to do a 'proper' detailed board for these buildings to go on. With a Canal/river and bridge down the centre of the board. Buildings first though

Thanks for the headsup on the Blood. I used to use a mix of Red, purple and blank inks mixed with GW water effect but my water effect have gone a bit funny now and wont set. But, yeah, I like my blood effects!! and haven't done any since my Khorne Fantasy army back in 8th ED! (wow, was that a long time ago!)

Alas, I'm not one of these lucky fellows who get to sit at home on 80% salary. I have to actually go to work to get my 100% AND, due to the delightful profession I have found myself in, am doing even more hours than normal. So we'll see how much hobby I actually get done in the next few weeks. :(

I heard that. it sucks for us still working. just got a day off today after like 4 days full and three halfers so yeah, get that...especially when stupid things like the weekly shop now takes four hours instead of 20mins. I know its all this nurgle plague and there's nout to be done but a collective hurry-up-and-wait. but man I'm sick of people complaining about having too much time at home. so here's a message to all of you thinking along those lines: USE IT! and take a moment to think of those who cannot cos for some life goes on as it did before. just slower and more risky...
