Still Standing

I repaired the damaged paintwork and I also made up a home-made stencil. I used this to add a bit more to the paintjob. I might go back and try to touch up the stencil work a little bit here and there. Otherwise, I think this bad-boy needs some varnish.

The Harder They Fall III

So, quick update. I managed to get the pin clipped, drilled new holes and have a much larger pin in place. I had to file down some of the leg to reach the pin. This has resulted in a bit of a gap between the knee joint and the leg armour. I don’t think it looks too obvious.

The picture is a bit blurry, but it shows the length of the pin. It goes down the same depth as you can see protruding. This is substantially longer than the previous pin and there is no room for it to drop further into the leg, thereby shortening the length of rod going into the knee.

I will post more when I have the model ready to rock and roll. It needs some damaged paintwork repaired and a few additions/changes to the paintwork while I am at it.

So, I was a bit disillusioned after the Revenant toppled over. I finally got back on the hobby horse and started to work on repairing it.

Here are some pics of the problem/damage.

It looks like the pin went further down into the lower leg and didn’t leave much going into the knee joint. Removing the pin proved to be impossible. Eventually I manage to cut it off and drill a new hole.

The Bigger They Are Part II

Work continues on the Revenant. I managed to get it filed and filled ok. Still some mold lines here and there I think, but decided to go ahead and undercoat it so I can see more clearly what needs more work. Continue reading

So, I started working on some Wraithguard. These are going to be magnetised with different weapon options. I also started working on my Revenant titan. Continue reading

Terminated

Finished off the terminators. They could do with some highlights and the bases need to be done. However, they will do for now. At some point I will do a basing day and get all the models I have painted recently based up in one go. I will also have to revisit the older terminator squad I painted up and bring them in line with the newer ones.

Hammer and Claw Pt 2

So, I have pretty much finished up the assault terminators. I ended up working on the Spacehulk Thunder Hammer guy.

Things have been a bit slow on the painting front this week. I have also been doing a lot of the more mundane stuff, like model prep (removing mold lines etc) and priming. I also assembled and primed a Drop-pod. Continue reading

Hammer and Claw

So, got to work on the terminators. The original plan was to do 12 in total. I had 10 terminators and numerous terminators from the old starter box set Assault on Black Reach and then the lightning claw and Thunderhammer/Stormshield guys from Spacehulk.

Golden Angels

So I continued work on the Sanguinary Guard.

After the grey primer I used some rust and then gold from vallejo model air. I wasn’t sure it would work, but I was happy with the results.

I pretty much finished the Death Company Dread. A few minor things to do and a bit of work on the base. Definitely good for tabletop though.
