Thanks, Tawa!

So it's now 2 down with 8 more to go for completing the Termi Pack... this will take a little while more but it's a case of slow and steady plus I'm enjoying myself while de-stressing from work!!!

As a further update to this Space Wolves project, I've been having a bit dilemma on the transportation of all the models as it grew. I didn't really want to "build" another foam case like I did for the daughter's Elves army but got to thinking about how to expand on the magnetized bases that I've been modifying. So in combination with the generic slotted electrical/electronic flight cases we've been using, the adhesive rubber-steel sheets, and a spare piece of 3mm MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard), I came up with this slotted shelf arrangement. This appears to be working but I suspect I'd want to reinforce the individual MDF shelf on the underside to stiffen them up.

Just thought I'd share this...

All four shelves slotted with extra space for vehicles...

And now we start on the second pack of Long Rangs (5 MLs), 6 more Grey Hunters to bring existing 2 packs to full strength (of 10) and 3 Librarians to go with the 2 existing Rune Priests to from the Space Wolves Librarius Formation...

Cheers, mate (and for the rep as well)!

The yellows were an experiment with advice received both here and at the local GW about watering down the paint and applying multiple coats to build it up. It definitely worked but as it had to be somewhat watery, it took 6 coats to achieve the final finish!

I'm now repeating this all over again on the pads for the second team of Long Fangs, this time in white. Painstakingly slow process but worth it in the end.

i find a greay base for whites is good start at a dark grey the med greay then as light greay as pos with some light white layers. This also means that the shading in the recesses will be done via the previous grey coats.

Have not updated for a while due to work commitments but I still did manage to do a fair bit during the evenings over the past few weeks, namely...

1. Completing the two 7-model GH packs to full 10-model packs (+ 1x Plasma Gun, 2x Bolter, Pistol & CCW each)
2. Completing second Long Fangs team so now we have Team 1 (2x Heavy Bolters, 3x Missile Launchers) and Team 2 (2x Lascannons, 3x Missile Launchers)
3. Building 5 packs of Fenrisian Wolves but only completed painting 3 packs
4. Starting on the Land Raider Crusader...

Will put up some pics of them soon.


OH! I should also add that the Wolfies now have allies on the way, in the shape of a Cadian Command Squad, a Veteran Squad with Heavy Weapons AND a 3-Flyer Vendetta Squadron!!! A new separate project log will be up soon for this allied army.

Default Kitbash of Land Raider Doors

Forgeworld bitz are great for customising the standard GW models to be Chapter specific. However I have a gripe with them on their Rhino and Land Raider doors. You get the details on the front but they don't bother with the reverse side of the door as you'd find on the GW models... see below:

Original Land Raider Door (with SM Icon already removed)


Forgeworld Rhino Door (had already done the deed with the LR door!)



To be fair, most models I've come across either simply have the doors glued on or they follow the LR build instructions and leave them unglued (and then proceed to lose the doors!), this one-sided detail is not an issue. However as I hinge the doors so that they can actually open up properly, it was very frustrating!

So this post is really a "record" of what I did to get round this issue. This was done earlier in post #34 on the Razorback but I didn't really show what I did so this post is to rectify that.

So... what I decided to do was to simply cut around the the FW icon and sanded away the thickness of the actual door. This took about 30mins in total with the bulk of the time spent on the sanding process, constantly checking that I was removing the door thickness parallel to the plane of the icon underside. The picture below is the final result of the door (with hinge cut and drilled ready for hinging).

Tools used for preparing the hinges



So there it is. Will hopefully finish the Land Raider build by the end of the week and get it painted during the weekend.
