A loft full of lead 2018-07-13 11:21:50

Posted on July 13th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Jim from Products For Wargamers suggested I make something for the industrial range using the smaller snack size Pringles tube. He even gave me a snack size Pringles tube, but it was empty, which was a bit disappointing, even so, without the prospect of free nibbles, I said I would have a go. Anyway, I … Continue reading

The big square tower looks pretty good when connected to a double height pringle tower. The angled walkway will support lead figures as long as they are not too top heavy, lighter weight plastic models are more easily balanced. Even my Reaver Titan looks small next to these things. Advertisements

Higher And Higher

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

The square Industrial Control Tower can be very tall, as tall as you want to go. It is modular, with most of the bits being interchangeable. One of the ladder sections did not quite work and needed some fixing but generally it looks great with models all over it! There are still some other sections … Continue reading Higher And Higher

Double Height Tower

Posted on June 30th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

I could not resist doing this, a double height Pringle Tower. I just had to design one new level to join the two tubes and a different vertical support for the upper section. It is very big… Advertisements

What’s On The Table

Posted on June 26th, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

I have actually started the lower hull of the large transporter, but the weather is so nice, I have been spending more time in the garden drinking Gin and Tonic, or when not drinking Gin and Tonic, going out on the old Ducati. But some progress is being made…just very slowly… Advertisements

Thor’s Workbench: Painting Progress Update on Orruks

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

Small update today to show where I’m at with my Orruks for Shadespire. I know not everyone follows the blog on social media (though you should!), so not everyone has seen the current progress. I wish I were further along too. I started this warband in …

What’s On The Table

The upper hull is about done. The nose cone is removable and reveals… …an embarkation point for models. As you can see, I added a few rivets… …and a missile launch module The engines will get glued into a fixed position, when they rotate, the paint on the supporting arms gets scratched off as the … Continue reading What’s On The Table

What’s On The Table?

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

It is big, grey and getting painted. I have started with the upper hull and the engines, I wanted to do a multi grey pattern like the Enterprise D, well a bit like it anyway. Advertisements

Whats On The Table?

Posted on June 13th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

When I need a break from painting the rather large transport, I am returning to the excellent Westwind Mechs. I am still deciding what colours to go for, one will likely be for my British Steampunk force so may be a patriotic red, white and blue. The other may get done in grey. Advertisements

Detailing The Tower

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

In the last mountain of MDF I cut at Products For Wargamers, was various detail components for the Industrial Office Tower. I had a lot of fun making a large extractor fan, the plan being to build it up so it had a nice raised and stepped edge. A more simple piece was this boxy … Continue reading Detailing The Tower

Whats On The Table?

Posted on June 5th, 2018 under , , , , , , , . Posted by

The painting of the GR-75 transporter is proceeding slowly, it is actually very hard to hold in one hand when painting. I have also built two towers with an interconnecting landing platform but the transporter looks a bit big for it. Of course I could always design a larger landing platform. Advertisements

MDF Mountain

Posted on June 3rd, 2018 under , , , , , . Posted by

Following a visit to my laser cutting friend, I have an MDF mountain to deal with. This lot is the second version of another industrial tower I am working on, it is compatible with the Pringle tower, but is a variable height. Advertisements

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

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

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
