Last post left off with me having finished up 15 magnetised terminator models - which of course left me with a massive pile of magnetised arms to paint as well...

Since I magnetised all my terminator arms, I figured that it will be best to do the bodies and bases first; that way I will be able to attach sets of arms onto the completed bodies later to make painting easier. I've done these from the ground up. Bases & bodies first, with arms and attachments to come in a later post.

I finished up my Space Hulk tiles a little bit before Christmas but never got around to adding some photos of them in use. Few pics from a game earlier this year.

As the big project for the first half of 2020 wraps up... I thought it worthwhile to summarise the steps that were taken to paint everything, plus add a few pictures of the boards set up with terrain.

Home stretch now - adding some light effects over the top of everything else, then calling it a day. This has taken a bunch of hours over probably 3 months, during which the boards have mostly been either been on or resting next to our dining table.

Up to the weathering episode; rust, dirt and blood.
I seem to keep adding time onto this project as it progresses. No individual step is super complicated or accurate, but by the time it takes to get around all 6 boards with a couple of small details, an hour can have passed.

Last episode finished up with the white/marble inlay sections completed. That now leaves me with really just the aquilas to paint, plus all the weathering & rusting to finish up. This phase will also include some other little nuances.

Getting relatively close to finishing up the sector boards now - and working on the detailing of some marble/stone sections which add a bit of flair on top of the Warhammer TV guide that the rest of the project has followed. Have quite been looking forward to trying this approach out.

It has been a kind of fun change doing these boards on a much bigger scale than troops - although it's still a LOT of painting to cover. Now on to washing large parts of the boards.

The continuation of what is a rather large project - working up the 6 sector imperialis boards. Part 1 left off with all the stonework and the roadways being completed; all the metal sheeting and detail panels now need to be filled in.

I wanted to test out a white backdrop for taking photographs of finished minis; came across some of the old metal models I'd painted in the late 90s... Quite fitting to do a little mucking around on the classic white sheet and 4 very classic chapters.

I realise mistakes may have been made... this could have been a much smaller and less involved project. Strap in - lots of background discussion on why I've done things my way.
