Grey and Gray

Posted on May 24th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I will be painting most of the upper hull of the GR-75 Transporter a few colours, grey and gray. Well I actually have about four versions of grey and plan to paint all the panels in different greys. I have started on the nose section, so if it goes wrong, I can just respray that … Continue reading Grey and Gray

Industrial Office Tower

Posted on May 22nd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Having designed the Industrial Processing Tower based around a Pringles tube, I thought I would design a Pringle-less tower, something that does not require munching through a pack of snacks (although having a couple of teenage girls around always helps in that respect. This construction, the Industrial Office Tower, uses level at the same heights … Continue reading Industrial Office Tower

May Work in Progress #1

Posted on May 18th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I have been putting many hours of work on my corridor set for Necromunda.  This is from Death Ray Designs and is made to match the wall siloettes on the game boards. I also got the matching door set.  I really thought this would be a quick pr…

A short update today for my latest work on Basha, an Orruk for my Shadespire warband. Basha WIP Let’s start with some pictures. These are shots I shared on social media, so nothing fancy, just showing the work. If you saw my previous work on Hakka then…

Whats Still On The Table?

Posted on May 15th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

By the time I had finished slapping paint onto the resin Inquisitors car, it was a lot less black and grey than I thought it was going to be. Needs inking. Advertisements

Whats On The Table?

Posted on May 12th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

This resin Inquisitor Car from Wargame Exclusive is a great looking model, another I have been delaying in painting. Being of a Batmobile type design, I thought I would paint it black, but black is such a hard colour to do. So I decided on dark Panzer Grey instead…which is nearly black… Advertisements

Undercoating Nerves

Posted on May 9th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

We have had some fantastic weather here in the UK over the May Bank Holiday, this provided the long awaited opportunity to undercoat the rather large GR-75 transport ship conversion. I have had a grainy undercoating experience in the past when it may have been too damp or cold spray paint. There were no excuses … Continue reading Undercoating Nerves

Final Touches

Posted on May 8th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

After a long cold and damp winter, a window of opportunity to undercoat the beast was approaching. I still had a couple of last gasp decisions to make, I had been undecided on which sort of vertical thrust engine nozzles to use. In the end I went for the large type. I also added a … Continue reading Final Touches

Fantasy Style House

Posted on May 1st, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

So I have not given up, I am pressing ahead making the stuff I want to use on a table. My next prototype is a fantasy style beamed house. I tried a few different ideas out with this one, some random brickwork on the ground floor, random tiles on the roof, and an unusual roof … Continue reading Fantasy Style House

Thor’s Workbench: My Improved Painting with Hakka (Orruk) WIP

Posted on April 23rd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I had recently mentioned that I’d be keeping my WIPs to social media. However, Castigator moved me to put some of that WIP love on the blog. Anyone who runs a blog probably runs into the same issues I do of balancing the blog with social media and what…

Industrial Tower MK2

Posted on April 6th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The first version of my Industrial Tower was okay to look at, but was very difficult to put together. The MK2 is much easier to build and has way fewer pieces. It still needs some tweaking, in particular, the tread plate pattern looks great but takes ages to cut. I have made several alternative tread … Continue reading Industrial Tower MK2

MDF Frenzy

To say that I have been busy creating lots of MDF designs would be an understatement. Lots to put together and so little time. Advertisements

Mk2 Two Doors

I have added double doors to the ground floor of my multi-level building, looking pretty good! Advertisements

Cutting Action

Posted on March 31st, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

As I don’t have my own machine and I don’t cut stuff very often, it is still quite fun to see one in action. This video shows some prototype ruins I have been working on. Advertisements

MK2 Stairs

Posted on March 28th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

The second version of the stairs is much better, they do not stick out as far and allows for a few models to be positioned at the entrance. I was not sure about the edging to the stair supporting wall. There were quite a few small pieces needed to trim the edge by the steps, … Continue reading MK2 Stairs

Bigger Buildings

Posted on March 27th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I liked the idea of a building that could have multiple floors with easy access to allow models to be positioned inside. So I created my own. This building can have as many floors as you want with each one being removable to allow models to be positioned inside. As a first go I think … Continue reading Bigger Buildings

Aviators, get your engines running!

Posted on March 24th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I got my hands on a Airfix Dogfight Doubles set back in 2016, and build the Messerschmitt Bf109 and a Spitfire MkVb right away. Now I found some more 1:48 scale kits, that could be used as terrain. So I bought a Junkers Ju-88 by Revell and a Ju-87 by Italeri. About the scale, that […]

An army with an exotic theme – Chindits for Bolt Action

Posted on March 4th, 2018 under , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

I have this lot of chindits lying around for quite some time now, and I want to explain why I chose these and what is the motivation behind it. First of all, why a themed army? I always liked from background to my projects, wether it is sourced ficitional or historical. I like to have […]

When it is like this, there is nowt to do but paint… These are the last of my British infantry, at least I hope they are the last and there are no more lurking in the Loft Full Of Lead. Advertisements

A loft full of lead 2018-03-02 12:07:39

Posted on March 2nd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Some time ago I started on a design for an MDF landing craft. This needed to be big enough to take a standard 1/56 scale tank and a 80mm Dust base, two if possible. So after the initial concept test (above), I have now cut a more complete prototype. There is still some work to … Continue reading
