With the drop of 8th edition the dual twin autocannon loadout for dreadnoughts has been very popular and for good reason. I've had two dreadnoughts for quite some time that came in the Assault on Black Reach set from a few editions ago. Decided to do a little cutting and scratch building to achieve the appearance of twin autocannons.First I used a hotwire cutter to remove the previous weapon loadout on both arms. Using some round sprue from Malifuax models and a bit of brass tube and we're done...
This model is one of the best sculpts that Privateer Press has ever produced. I've wanted one for years but the model's rules in MK2 were pretty terrible. However, it's MK3 rules are pretty solid so I finally picked one up.I've since stalled on this project, regrettably I've been pulled away to other projects. Hoping to get back to it soon to finish. ...
Ever since I started my Legion army a few years back I've often thought of building an ice table complete with terrain, zones, and flags to match my ice based Legion army. Well, I finally got around to doing and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.The base of the board is just foam insulation board that I purchased at Lowes. You can pick these up in 2' x 8' or 4' x 8' sheets. I cut a 2' x 8' sheet in half to make my 4' x 4' playing surface.First steps involved creating some texture on the board. I started with a small tub of spackle and applied it unevenly to form some raised areas...
With the latest edition of 40k dropping recently I've been taking a break from Warmachine to play some 40k. However, most of my terrain is geared towards WM games and just doesn't lend itself well to games of 40k. So, I've been building a lot of terrain for 40k use in an effort to be able to nicely fill a 4x6 table. Just using black foamcore mostly and a hot glue gun here but the results look pretty decent. I did texture some areas using snow flock. A little bit of flat black and some highlighting with gray primer and its mostly done. I'll still spend a little more time on these doing some...
Over the last few years I've been asked many times if I do commission work or would consider doing it. My answer has always been no as I've always preferred to concentrate on working on my own models. This hobby can be addicting and it's VERY easy to get buried in a ton of unpainted plastic and metal.For some reason this time I decided to say yes to doing a small commission in trade for a friend's Convergence army and a handful of Malifaux models.Started things off with a Tharn Solo...
I finally picked this game up this year after being turned on to it at Templecon 2016 last year. For one piece board game miniatures the quality is pretty great and the monsters are very good. Looking forward to putting some paint on to those. In the meantime I did a speed paint job on my favorite of the four clans in the base game.
Wow, and just like that 5 months goes by without a single blog post! For shame!I certainly haven't been as busy as I have been at times with the hobby but my work hasn't come to a stand still just my blog posting.You should see a series of posts cropping up over the next couple weeks with what I've been up to over the last several months. In the mean time here's a few teaser shots. ...
