Subject: DJ's P&M Adventures - Blotting out Heresy, one sword swing at a time
Enjoy the hobby break. Looks like you've got a lot of cool projects on the shelves for when you get back. Try not to spend too much time thinking about all the unpainted models. Try not to let it get under your skin and... oh god, I have more models to paint than I have days remaining in my life
Well, I'm back, but the return didn't go as smoothly as I planned. Not going to go into all the gory details, but I haven't had as much hobby time as I would have liked.
But, have done some work on my LoER entry. Captain Brown says i can only submit one piece. rules.
Part of it is going to be a wrecked ambulance. It's a Hot Wheels car that I cut open and modified. It'll have a flickering LED on the inside so it looks like it is still burning a little.
Here are some bullet holes in the windows and blood on the seat.
And some charring from smoke coming out of the windows.
And a billboard to be behind the wreckage, I have some rusting bolts that I've put on the structure of it.
I made a digital image to put on the billboard, but that's going to be a real spoiler for the competition.
Then, I was cutting some foam and both my knife blade and my hot wire cutter snapped.
So, I was "forced" to work on a squad of Hellblasters, and they at least, are coming along nicely. I still have some osl to do on the guns and the eyes of the helmets.
I also have the rest of the No Fear box set lined up and waiting for some paint. I wanted to spring for the Indomitus set, but teachers don't get paid much in this country. And, Mrs. Jazzy wouldn't really appreciate me dropping the $200 to get one on preorder.
Onwards and upwards!

Welcome back to the world. RIP wire cutter, RIP hobby knife. Whatever that foam is, step on its head before it can breed. We can't let this go back to the wild and contaminate the rest of our foam stock.
Nice brush control on those Hellblasters. Nice, even coats.
Touched up my Eliminators. I stepped the cloaks back to their original form. I think it looks better without the patches of camouflage. I also added a little more of a brighter red highlight on the cloaks. It ties them closer to the rest of the army without making them super bright. It didn’t make sense to have a camp cloak and bright red armor.
Rest easy, the foam has been properly punished and destroyed. Thanks for all the welcome backs.

I like it. So, with that in mind, here are some wip photos. With only three days left, I have to really grind. Got some nice rust effects on some towers, especially for a first time trying it.
