That hand-bell is looking nice and worn, insaniak - I hadn't realised you were a campanologist...

So, speaking of things that aren't cathedral bells... finished the fuel tank, and wrote up a quick tutorial on using photo paper to create weathered and faded signs like this:



or this:

New week, new modeling article... This time a bunker made from an air conditioner fitting that I found while I was at the hardware store looking for something else entirely...

Alien fauna is always a nice thing to add - I remember the WD article with the ball cacti with red spikes, from back in t'day.

Are those artificial aquarium plants, by any chance?

I did a slightly updated version of those for a tutorial a while back - https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/750744.page

Yup, spiffy, alien-looking silicon plants

Also cool looking alien plants, did a bunch for Gates of Antares myself.

The model is a modified Epirian Bot Handler, not a new model... Was just the nearest thing to hand (that I could show, at least ) for scale.

Interesting - I was going to ask how you going the paint to stick to the silicon, but the simple answer was that you didn't!

Yeah, they're not going to win any awards - there are slight mould lines in places and the colouring is mostly good but a little messy in places, but it's good enough at table height to pass muster for gaming.

There are paints out there that will stick to silicon, but it just didn't really seem like a worthwhile use of time

Saw this cross posted over in the Gates of Antares Facebook group. This sort of set up is great for hard SciFi games. GW is so stuck with ruins and buildings it’s kind of sad.

Great job.

To be fair, GW do have their alien plant sets... They're just really ugly. And expensive.

Is painting old bronze similar to painting old copper, as in all the same steps but start with a bronze paint?
