I haven’t done a whole lot of hobbying recently.

As I’ve mentioned previously in my 2017 hobby goals post, I plan on revisiting the […]

Road to Dallas: Judgement Day

This article was written in two parts. The first part was written before I knew whether or not I had won my local store’s Ritual of Judgement, the second was written after I knew what I place I finished and I evaluated the first part of this article and see if my predictions were accurate. Let’s get to […]

2017 Hobby Plans – Ben

Posted on May 5th, 2017 under , . Posted by

With Adepticon done and gone, and a bit of a break taken from hobbying, I’m ready to get rolling again, and the best way to start that is by planning out the year. As we’ve mentioned before, our hobby yearly schedule tends to revolve around Adepticon, with other tournaments (Such as Operation Sting for Bolt […]

Road to Dallas: Crunch Time

Posted on April 30th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Even though it is less than two weeks until the  Inner Circle’s Ritual of Judgement, I’m not worried. This week saw a whole slew of components finished up. The best progress by far is my entire Field Artillery pit. I’ve decided due to the uniqueness of each piece, I’ll be entering them as their own unit. […]

Happy Monk P2

This project is taking longer, but I feel that it will be worth it.
So as normal this week is about the base and this one is the most complicated I have done to date I understand that to some who might be reading this may have done this or more complicated but this is for me is a massive undertaking.
So the idea is something close to karate kid, but a lot more dramatic, so the idea is the monk is standing on a rock in the middle of the ocean wile a storm is happening and even though the world is against him he is still able to find peace. 
So now the idea is out lets get on with the build starting with the rock make out of cork. 

Now the shape of the rock is made I needed to try and make the hole thing more stable as the figure is heavy and the cork is not really the strongest of material so I inserted Lots of brass rods through out to try and make it more ridged and added miliput to give it a sort of hard shell.  

 Because I am trying to create something that is a big scene in a small space I thought from the start I would use the back of the rock to be an ending point of the scene to allow people to think about the rest and to use the bottom to make it more sturdy. 

With these pics you may or may notice some things that do not make sense and that is because there has been so much going back and redoing this and that because of being unsure about what I was doing and wanting to do it perfect.

Here we have it with a bit of paint.

Now this part is an example of something that did not work out like it should the Idea is the cling film would protect the rock/painting from the plaster that I am using to make the water and the waves bit the cling film was did not allow the plaster to cover all the rock so I had to just forget about the paint and just carry on.

Here we have a first go at making the waves I used filler from Tesco cost £1. 

From there I built up the wave up the rock.

And again we hit another point where I had to restart and change something and this was what I was using turns out Filler is not the best thing to use and what happened was first it stuck to the rock like glue and also the home thing did not set in one piece and broke apart which made it useless as I could not even if I wanted to glue it together.
So after chipping away the filler and repainting it (I know I did not have to but I did anyway.) I got plaster not filler and it works a hell of a lot better and I was given the advice to use vaseline on the rock to stop the plaster sticking to it and to use it if filling in mold line but not wanting them to stick together.

and as you can see you are able to remove it in a hole peice.

From there building the waves.

As well as filling in gaps and trying to fill the lines, there was a lot more back tracking in these parts with the wave breaking from the water and not being able to slot it back into place, but if I went on about all the things that went wrong then this would be the world longest post.
This comes to the end of it this week, lots more to do.
What you all think and have you done something similar, please comment below.

WIP: Ultramarines Tactical Squad #5

Posted on April 27th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

The first combat squad is done, now onto the second. I’ve started with a batch of three models, including a Plasma gunner and the Sergeant. The remaining two models will be reworks of existing paint jobs (not shown on the picture above).

So far I made good progress on the armour. I realized that MkIII armour takes much longer to paint than other marks – so many segments and rivets to pick out. Thankfully it’s only one model 😉 What do you think?

Taking a break last week for Easter Sunday, I return with sizable progress.
