more on.... the larch.... the larch.....



Add on a sign for the shop unit, looks like somebody's been shooting at it, along with a more practical door that looks a bit plain beside the containers gothic design, but salvagers don't have the luxury of decoration



You need easy access to the roof, so install a retractable ladder unit by the hatch



A display unit (or bench if you're holding a meeting) is installed under the windows along with a salvaged computer console and control deck



and finally a bit of work on sealing up the rear door, weld it shut (i'll have to do the last bit after painting the inside and gluing the container together), and disable the lock control pad, 'killing' that servo skull in the process

oh and note the damage to the eagles beaks that serve as the lifting points for the containers, a good reason for it to have been reused as something else as it was sent for repair or recycling and ended up diverted into the underhive economy

enough tree base foolishness for now and back to Papa Nurgles babies,



A Foul Blightspawn and his ever so helpful Nurgling with not a conversion in sight as I really like the model. Quite pleased with how the bubbles in the tank worked out.

(not so pleased with the photography which doesn't quite seem to be in focus, I may try and take an alternate set of shots in the next few days)

So how did you do the tank/bubbles? That part is what's kept me from painting my own Blightspawn.

first I painted it with an off white/beige (Vallejo deck tan), then I put in the bubbles with dots of brighter white (Vallejo Ivory highlighting up to Vallejo White) in 2 or 3 sizes, more large ones at the top, more smaller ones at the bottom just as you see with bubbles in cartoons

I then laid over a layer of bright acid 'transparent' green, I used old GW scorpion green which is pretty much see through (if you've not got that any really acid green or fluorescent diluted with glaze medium should do just so long as you can see through it)

then repeat the highlighting with white on some of the bubbles and repeat the green glaze over the whole thing (to represent those closer to the window), I did this twice to give 3 'depths' of bubbles (that's why the green needs to be so see through)

finally I ran a dark green into the cracks (ancient GW bolter shell snot green)

I also ran an edge highlight of the scorpion green around the metal bezel surrounding the window to give just a slight hint of a glow

My easybuild champion conversion is now painted up and looks good if I do say so myself, and equally importantly different enough from the original

I got lucky and picked up some old school plague bearers in a charity shop, not painted like i'd do but they do have an old school charm

so do I strip and (eventually) repaint, or just rebase and leave the paint alone?

It's a Fly Guy, really pleased with how this one painted up, the fly eyes are done with one of the greenstuff world chameleon paints and look excellent in person, and the bloated belly looks suitably revolting

Now how about some bolter fodder, yup I've started painting up some pox walkers

now in theory I've got 2 sets from Dark Imperium, one to build as is and one to convert, plus 2 sets of the easy build kit to do the same but could I find any of them?

Nope, so I had to pick up yet another easy build set, so the converting will have to wait until I can find the missing stuff

Really liking the palette so far dude - the muted greys and blue/purple that you don't normally see on Nurgle minis are working really well for you. Keep it up!

The Alien. The Other. The Inconceivable. The Eldritch Abomination is a type of creature defined by its disregard for the natural laws of the universe as we understand them. They are grotesque mockeries of reality beyond comprehension whose disturbing otherness cannot be encompassed in any mortal tongue.

Success! I found my missing poxwalkers from Dark Imperium suce

(I wonder why I packed them away with the Orks & Goblins? I blame having to put them away rather than leaving them out to gather dust, tidying up is such a pain)

still no sign of the missing easybuild ones but the DI stuff is enough to be getting on with
