I've been busy of late tiling my bath but I had to express a thanks for all the replies. I'll be doing some painting (on the model) today and with hope a proper update later this week.

Left a note What is the source of the three story tower on the left side of your battle board?

Thanks for the view, and comment!

Those images are getting old now, they are between 2 and 4 years old. The tower is actually two GW bastion kits stacked - sorry to be boring! The kit is still available and costs only as much as some of the new single miniature kits do these days...

Lipstick On A Pig:

Ugly as a Warthog most definitely and I finally found my antique can of Krylon 'Rust' Primer this past week; now I can begin painting the detail.

So with the masking tape removed it's a bit of a letdown

I plan to activate my airbrush later this weekend and see what I can do to perk these images up.

The Assault Door Lacks Panache:

It seems I've been too conservative embellishing the front door. Besides the ho-hum paint job the loading ramp is rather bleak so it's back to the drawing board to try to perk up this dismal effort; in point of fact the whole nose of this work is pretty bland.

Whom I kidding; I don't have a drawing board but instead....

Eureka! I've found it while contemplating my next iteration of the loading ramp I've just thought of how I can extend the ramp to make the egress more user friendly.

And the paint erosion needs to be toned down a tad as well.

Assault Door Redux:

Oh yes much more business like. I had to fake the sensor units on the doors as the images I have are pretty vague

http://i.imgur.com/z3g96SS.jpg


and there is only one that I can discern on the left side of the nose.

The right one is a pure fabrication I put in just for artistic balance.

More painting to come but I had to see how this would look before I continue.
