Underhive Board

For absolutely ages I've been hankering after a new board. The one i currently have, which you may have seen in my battle blogs, is perfectly serviceable but I really wanted to try something new out. 

The current WWG textured board

However, coupled with some serious analysis paralysis (Modular? In built terrain? wtf is all this new sector mechanicus stuff? Sewers? Multi level?) I never really got to grips with doing anything. However, having found and joined the awesome yaktribe community (I'm still a bit of lurker, but I'm going to kick off a thread with this stuff on this evening), and seen the majorly awesome stuff, I decided to make some decisions and get started.

The basis of of my board is a bunch of these TT Combat tiles. Awesome company, awesome product.

I then decided to texture the board with some wall paper (the same that I used for my Imperial Guard dudes. Why I didn't think of this earlier I have no idea!) and textured plasticard, and then using some plasticard strips to add some further texture and to add as a framing device between panels.

The current guard scheme

Also, I've cut some holes into some of the boards. The plan here us to add some exposed detail beneath the base level, but also perhaps to add some vertical elements that can slot in.

Anyhoo, I've now assembled the first 8 tiles ready for some priming...

Some juicy texture

So colour wise I'm going for mostly black with a heavy silver drybrush for the currently beige stuff, and the textured plasticard will be a pale blue. Plus loads of rusty pigment action.

Termie Characters

Hey hey. I finished off two more models! The forge world terminator sorcerer and a terminator chaos lord. These guys have been in progress for so damn long! 

I love the sorcerer dude. Such an excellent model. 

I got the Lord in an ebay haul a while back (minus the hammer, that was my tweak), but I didn't realise until I came to paint it how shoddily it was put together. But I think that it turned out ok.

I also went hiking near Beddgelert and saw some cool rusty things...

I also got a load of those tt combat bases and made a start on assembling some for my new board...

Also Orktober approaches. Eeeeeeek!!

So that makes 19 models done in 2018. Rubbish!

Thanks for reading.

Iron Warrior Termiators

Yup took one heck of a long time, but I recently finished up a batch of terminators...

This is my fave of the bunch 

I then decided to di out those 100% complete Iron Warriors and stick them on my shelf. Looking good I think!

So that make a total of 17 models complete in 2018. Not that great, but at least its something.

Thanks for reading!

Warhammer Fest 2018

So having managed to complete my first models of 2018, I went to Warhammerfest back in May. Consequently I'm absolutely brimming with 40k enthusiasm.

First some pics..

On the whole it was a great day out, with couple of disappointments...

  • Lack of a big Necromunda display. I would have loved to have seen the promethian rig thing again
  • Sold out of Van Saar by the Sunday. Bit shit really.
  • No pen
Thanks for reading!
