Hobby update and #dreadtober

Posted on October 31st, 2017 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

Hi all, just a very brief update today – I’ve been distracted by RL stuff I’m afraid. Still, I’ve had time to get work in on some new objective markers, my dreadnoughts for #dreadtober (which are now finished) and some commission stuff, though I’ve realised that without their mounts, the bloodbletters look like they’re dancing to Gangnam Style!

Dreadtober 2017 – Genestealer Cult Sentinels – Pilot’s lounge

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I think these are almost done now, which is why I’m picking out some of the finer details in the cabin. A quick Incubi Darkness drybrush, followed by Dark Reaper is all I wanted to do.Then the dials and lights, just simple RAG rated [in reverse 😉 ]. Hindsight I could have added some yellow on the inner walls so that just the console equipment was black but I’ll live with it as is.

The other console on the left, just glowy dials. It’s fiddly to get in so this was the best I was after.

I then decided to add some Gunmetal scratches and scuffs, particularly on the feet and ball joint.

Really glad I did now as I think it adds a lot. Ordinarily I might have applied some extra shading behind it but this looks more natural than I usually do. You can also see I’ve started to edge the base with Valejo Heavy Red, so you know they’re almost complete now.

I think the Flamer is a bit too grunged and the fuel tanks are slightly incongruous but some scuffs and Typhus Corrosion have blended it back into the whole a bit.

The exhaust stacks had a little Abaddon black drybrushed on the ends, for soot.

The pilots look identical, they’re both ‘Turqs’ [vat-bred genetic-xenos hybrids]. I had some fun with my lime green paint making the glow effect on the visor and controls.

The pilots have both been varnished with Army Painter Anti-Shine, ready to be glued in place once the Sentinels have also been varnished. While I’m at it I’ll get the Deathwatch done too, which begs the question – what next? I probably have enough time to do the new AoP base, but having dismissed the possibility I now feel less inclined to make the effort…

Dreadtober 2017 – Genestealer Cult Sentinels – Shading and the return of the abomination that is Seraphim Sepia

Posted on October 16th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

I was pretty pleased with myself at this point the mix of Iyanden Dark Sun and Gamboge was producing some half decent results and I could be as messy as I wanted to be so there was a lot of freedom in the process.I’m not sure the subsequent set of high…

The last thing I did the other night was a Strong Tone wash on the bases so it could dry and I’d Red Planet BASE! them the following night. Jetek Suberei’s base was also in the mix. You can see I’ve completed the four sets of highlights on the red and …
