Over the river, through the woods

@nflagey - it is going to have to be played as a giant squiggoth (unless i ever get around to playing, and the person i play lets me use it as a regular squiggoth).

i haven't done anything major to it, except work briefly on the chains which are supposed to hold the howdah and armor on. been busy with the LoER contest entry and real life--for example, i have been trying to order bits to make flash gitz, and the ebay seller i am using, who was once remarkably reliable, has turned into a nightmare of parts cut off the sprue badly, missing items from orders, and now parts being sent to the wrong address (wrong STATE)...

tonight, WIP of the contest entry (almost finished) will be up. after that, i may paint more on the grot tanks. or i might work on the squiggoth. not really sure. my GF only has every other weekend off, and this weekend she's off, so...we shall see.

the LoER had another deadline extension, so i might actually be able to finish painting it. might have to sit out the next contest, or act as a judge, as i will be starting a new job on the 29th. good news is that the new job's main selling point was 3 days off in a week, so i should have plenty of time to work on stuff in the future.

well, i didn't finish the contest entry, but i may come back to it at some point. had some projects to do around the house, and because my d-bag former boss decided to let me go 1 week into my two week notification period, i got the big projects on the honey-do list done, and had some time for hobbies. made some progress on the squiggoth:

Spoiler:






painting isn't great, lighting isn't the best, but you get the general idea.

need a break from the squiggoth, so i will probably be working on the grot tanks later today.

have to do all the base coats before i can dirty them up...did a little wash work on the squiggoth, but it is mostly under the howdah. have a few more little details i want to color on the howdah itself before i start washing on the dirt.

anybody have any input on dirt or gore on the legs of the squiggoth?

Not where I should be

I would go with dusty feet Maybe one of the front ones a bit gorey, maybe a hand stuck between the toes.

Nice.

Green one looks like it could use a little more detail on the turret. It's a little too cardboard-box at the moment. The tracks are great, though.



Skorcha tank is awesome.

I think grot tanks are so cute. They make me want to squee with joy or something.

Can't wait to see these done.

@insaniak - thanks for pointing it out...i will probably add a few more little physical details, but i planned on painting an orky insignia on the rear of the turret. also planned on either a purple polka dot or purple flame paintjob, which will also help mask the lack of details.

@EyeamRai - i'd like to see them done, as well... i'm focusing on the tanks and the squiggoth. i've told myself i can't put together anything else until i finish them, so i will make progress tonight/tomorrow.

i would still like to build one (at least) one more grot tank, as the rules in Imperial Armour Apocalypse (Second Edition) say a grot tank mob can be 3-6 tanks. Also may take a stab at a grot mega tank, once the squiggoth and the regular grot tanks are done.

thanks, Cam!

after 3 washes, the 'kommand tank' is nearing completion:

Spoiler:







painting on the other grot tanks isn't as nearly done. pretty sloppy so far, but trying to get a better idea of what they will look like when completed.

progress so far:
