More work being done, hoping to get to prime some stuff today and start painting.

Loads of mini's. Lots to paint, time to get cracking on it.

My milliput got here, so I did some gap filling on the Gunship. It's hard as a rock now, so I can start sanding to smooth it out. Once that's done, I'll add the guns (Punisher cannons, twin linked multi lasers) and see about priming.

Super pumped, starting a 30 day painting challenge tomorrow. Aiming for two hours of painting a day, more if I can find the time. No idea on how many mini's I'll get done, the list is too long.

Excellent goal, to participate in a painting challenge- stay the course!

_Love_ how the Gunship print came out.

So the first batch of mini's for the 30 day challenge. If I can get these all done, I've got plenty more.

Thanks. Trying to find my small files so I can get the Gunship primed. Don't know if I'll get it painted during the challenge, but should be primed and maybe some base coats.

Thanks again!

Working on some MDF terrain from Warsenal at the moment. Using the old hairspray and salt trick for weathering. Still loads to paint!

And I don't play Infinity, but Warsenal is hands down the best MDF terrain I've come across. TONS of nooks and crannies, tons of detail, tons of places to go to town on detail.

_That_ is probably the nicest MDF kit building I've seen- incredible detail!

The salt weathering technique turned out very well!

Thanks! It's more of a pain in the butt than I wanted, but it works.

Long time no updates! 30 Day challenge started off well, then life got in the way, then picked up, then life stuff.

I actually got a TON of paint on mini's, just didn't "finish" anything. 10-15 were good enough for tabletop, another 40-50 have basecoat and wash, and another 40-50 are washed after primed. I also managed half a dozen MDF buildings with various levels of paint.

Next time, will be focusing more on specifics, rather than just slap paint on stuff.

I did finish 12 fences tho!

Currently wiring MDF buildings for LEDs, and still working on my cyberpunky - scifi building with video screen.

While walking through Walmart today, I came across this set of organizers. Shockingly solid and sturdy, the nest and come with a three tier riser, perfect for paints. I did a write up on it here: https://www.waaaghdaorks.com/post/organization-is-fun

Next Tuesday March 8th, I'll have up some pics and full tutorial on wiring Terrain with LEDs. I'll be using a Warsenal MDF building, but could be used for anything terrain related (Cardboard, Mattboard, paper, etc). I'll post the link and some pics when it's ready.

Cheers!

Excellent- looking forward to it.

I got crazy awhile ago and picked up a string of mini-Christmas lights, a set of mini-lights from MicroMark and mini LEDs and diodes to make my own circuits, to see what I might like working with best. Your tutorial is well-timed and most welcome.

Thanks. Wasn't trying to go crazy (That's for later this year hah!) with them, but simply light up a few buildings. Nine volt battery, switch and an LED or two is all.

Thanks for looking!

Tutorial Tuesday is up, step by step adding LEDs to terrain. I used a Warsenal piece from the Xiguan series.

Hmmm.... something's in the air. I can smell it. Not spring (it's snowing today in Minnesota)... something else.

Yep, something's coming that doesn't smell all that great. Almost earthy, like fungus maybe?

It's Waaaagh time. Found these stl's from MrModularork and it got my juices going for the boyz again. Snakebites first, then Evil Sunz.

I wanted a change of pace while the other boyz are curing / printing. So built this fella for my desk.

Just finished printing the next Action Figure Ork (Figork?) for the Evil Sunz. He'll get assembled and worked on once I'm done with 500 pts and the big guy for my Snakebites. Having set up my desk in much better way for painting, I'm really starting to enjoy it much, much more.
