Space Hulk: 3D Hirst Arts construction

I think I might have done something silly... trying to build a 3D set of Space Hulk terrain with 40mm squares suitable for full terminator bases.

Death Company: 2nd Edition Legacy and planning my unit for 8th

The Death Company have had a special place with me since 1994, although it's with a little shame that I have to admit I have never painted or even owned any. For a bit more background...

Showcase: Assault Squad Mittitur

Putting a self-imposed deadline on this squad for the Bolter & Chainsword pledge has helped finish off my assault squad (complete with 2 changes of packs). Will do some better res pics with an SLR once the guys get a matt varnish over the decals.

Assault Squad WIP #1

I've had a squad of airbrush coated assault marines sitting in a box almost since last Christmas. These guys have been given a big nudge along by taking part in the Bolter & Chainsword vow for 2017. The little bit of external (self-induced) pressure has been good to focus on getting them done...

Fallout billboards for 40k terrain: tabletop ready(ish)

Since my airbrush (and about 400 other bits of equipment, paint, etc) have been on our dining table, I've taken the chance to smash out some more basecoating of scenery before they outstay their welcome. 

The two Fallout inspired billboards that were knocked up a few weeks ago are now serviceable (if not yet weathered/detailed).

Warsenal containers: adding colour

I've had 10 of the excellent Warsenal storage containers built since about Easter, but have been slow to put paint on them with the distraction of building minis from the Dark Imperium box. The first batch of storage containers now have some paint on them...

Fallout billboards for 40k terrain: quick weekend construction

I'd been thinking about scratch building some billboards for 40k for a long time (even bought a packet of plasticard I-beams about a year ago...) but have kept putting it off as my ideas for building something featured overly complex designs of beams & frameworks.

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that a dude I've known through work for ~10 years is actually a hardcore closet gamer, and has recently put in 120+ hours exploring Fallout 4. 

Our long talk about the Fallout world prompted me to just dive in and just build something 'good enough' rather than a perfect reflection of a real-life billboard.
