Finding myself with a chance to actually get games in again, i've found a marked improvement in the speed i'm getting things painted, so i figured i'd have a go at a log
with that said, i present the work of the year so far, in all its i need a lightbox or better photo setup glory

ok, normal camera is down with dead batteries, so some phone pics of some of the cryx i've finished up (there was some more, but they went off to a friend as part of a trade)
Spoiler:





the bits of terrain are from my experiments with that gakky green foam thats used for floral arrangements and whatnot, to see if i can use it for anything
so far, its holding up, after being coated with brush on gesso first

You’re putting out some nice looking models!

Loving the foam terrain pieces, never thought of doing that before and it seems like a good way of getting some big chunky landscape pieces done quickly.

thank you

it was pure luck i found that the green foam soaks up the acrylic gesso enough to hold paint, and toughen up somewhat
but yea, big chunky pieces are the way to go, and its a quick easy process with an exacto knife, that last one probably only took 15 minutes of actual work, not counting dry time on the gesso, paint, and water effect
i have a block and a half of the foam left, so my next plan is ruined watch tower, if i can pull it off

I think the hazard stripes work fine. Those Blood Angels are rocking a ton of firepower.
