I had today off, but went off to The Hawk Conservancy today and had a very nice relaxing day there, chinese takeaway for tea and have just chilled this evening. However (and onto the subject of the post), I’ve decided that due to time constraints that neither arm will be clad with the ribbed plasti-card. […]
I ordered the bits to make up a Chaos marine last week and these arrived on Thursday. Have just done minor tidying and blue tacked the pieces together to make a mock of the whole Dreadnought. Still needs a lot of work, but personally I think that it’s going to end up being very nice […]
A few days without a post, which is somewhat remiss of me. Basically I’ve been messing around painting the couple of tanks that I’ve airbrushed the other day. A few reasons for this. Firstly it means that I can go back to my Dreadnought nice and refreshed, secondly it has been a bit of R&D […]
By some bizzare quirk of fate, this blog now appears at position number ten in google when you search for the phrase “golden demon 2009”. Quite bizzare to be honest and I have no idea why.
I was late home last night, so rather than get into anything major, I experimented shading and highlighting a cupola that I had airbrushed on Monday. I used heavily thinned Citadel Washes for the shading, two to three parts water to one part wash. First off I applied Asurmen Blue to parts of the model […]
Here are the pics of the tanks that I airbrushed the other day. As I said in a post yesterday, I’m fairly happy with the end effect, although it’s not as subtle as I’d have hoped.
Yesterday I was able to gain access to the garage at home (there’s normally a car in there), so rather than waste my time as the Dreadnought was ready yet, I experimented with my new Iwata HP-C Plus airbrush. This bit of kit is worth it’s weight in gold. The control you have over laying […]
So yesterday was my self imposed deadline – which I managed to miss fairly significantly. I spent pretty much all of Saturday trying to get everything up to a point where I could spray it yesterday, 15 hours of modelling, much of it with a headache. The legs are now complete and have in-fact been […]
It appears that I have two parcels waiting for me at home. One I think must be my pillar drill as it was despatched yesterday via fedex. My pin vices arrived yesterday (fantastic for only £2.30), so the only thing that I think it can be is my ForgeWorld order 😀 This is fantastic as […]
Just a short post as I’ve just caught my finger on the edge of my razor saw and it’s chuffing painful. Update: So I now have a plaster on my finger and it’s not inclined to split open and drip blood at the slightest pressure 🙂 As you can see the legs are almost complete. […]
