Work and the weather has conspired against me but I've actually got something painted. The photos made it look brighter than it is and I've got some other things undercoated today so hopefully, more will get done.
Well the techmarine has his tarantula finally, there's a Lt commander who's had an accident and been stuck in a dreadnought and to finish off the first tactical squad. So I'm getting close to a legal army, maybe by this time next month, we'll see.
Well another post another project, this one is a group project though. Pre-heresy 40k, well that's the plan, though my own force is going to be old beaky marines painted in the old Salamanders colour scheme.
This is the test piece to see if it works and is also a pain in the butt to photograph.
This is the techmarine crewman for my tarantula, when I get it painted, the only problem now is finding enough of the old marines
While not totally relevant to the blog it is gaming related so good enough for me :-P
I'm experimenting with dipping to see if I could manage to do an entire army this way and just to see what it's like in general. the 3 on the right were dunked in the tin and the 3 on the right had the stuff brushed on. Definatly think the brush is the way to go though I still need to learn to put less on, sort of.
Anyways the point is I might just buy some skellies and get dipping. Oh and the figures are the old games workshop skellies from 20 odd years ago, built and shoved in a draw till now, apart from the one in the middle who's an old metal fella.
So ther's been no progress on the tug reacently, I've been away from home and I kind of bought myself a Lynx helicopter, the weather's not so good today so I probably won't get chance to go out and and spray it, so the tug might advance a bit.
First post of the year, pretty bad really. I have been working on things but the low attention span means I'm bad at finishing anything. Anyway on to the point, I've started yet another vessel. This is going to be a tug, but with some sort of planning I'm hoping the hull will be usable for other small ships, who knows it might even work.
