I take it you live in/near Darwin? Bad for painting figs. Watch your finecast as the humidity can really do for the paintwork. You probably know that already though. If you are having trouble with paint not sticking, try giving the model a very thin coat of thin superglue. Use good ventilation when doing so etc.
Try it out on an off-cut of finecast first. It'll never be a full cure, but it helps. It will also stiffen thin resin

Good stuff.
Let's get some green on there!

epic critter in that titan. the base is awesome.
looks very well done, and the sort of model that you neer want to finish - always want to add something, a bit more highlight, detail, base flock, more LEDs!!!
very well done.

man, you get a LOT of hobby done.
usually, by the time i have read this log update, my hobby time is finished!
if you were a novelist, libraries would be begging for mercy!

regarding mould lines - the only way to manage those is to use the flat scraping edge of the razor knife before undercoating.
can be done after with some extra prep, but best always before base coating imo.
your fix however is brilliant.

Interesting idea! I can see how that would counteract the humidity and strengthen the weaker bits of resin, though I wonder what your application method is. I shudder to think of having to put up with a model that is super sticky all over and is drying somewhere on my cluttered work desk... Also, although I've not run into too many issues with finecast - I only have the one finecast model - I have found that particularly humid days seem to degrade the quality of my plastic and superglues, leading to more breakages along the glue lines than I have seen before.

Ahhhhhhh Torealis your siren song lures me so! As it happens I went and bought the deathwatch shoulder pads from chapterhouse - http://chapterhousestudios.com/index...&product_id=91 - and am planning a forgeworld bolter purchase in the not too distant future. Once my Grey Knights are complete, I expect a true-scale deathwatch killteam may well be in order...

Thanks! I don't have a lot else going on at the moment, I'm not native to this city, it's still Wet Season so there's not much going on but rain and humidity, my best friends around here are almost all hobbyists, and my fiancee is awesome. Also, when Uni is in session, I'm studying distance which allows me to plug in an audio-lecture and paint!

My other hobbies have suffered a bit, but I really want to clear space and backlog before I slow back down - somewhat reduced spending should help me do that!

I completely agree. In this case, the mold line was more of a fitting error, where the pieces of the chaingun frame did not meet up so smoothly. The end result was a gap between halves as wide as a terminator's finger that just wouldn't glue together. Hence why I was so thrilled at the immediate good result from 30 seconds of liquid greenstuff application, after about a week of failed attempts at getting the glue to hold them.

Pictureless updates make me sad, so here is a quick snap of some wall of martyrs terrain that I'm rushing to get table worthy (desert/savannah table) before a game later today:

Interesting... never seen those shoulder pads before. I picked up the plastic ones on eBay.

Despite Jin's best efforts - He probably collapsed in the heat or got struck by lightning from a blue sky, the way the weather's been going... I managed to get those Wall of Martyrs terrain pieces finished. A week later than I though I would, mind, and these are speed painted to table top quality too. Tell me what you think.









I'm in two minds about the kits. I know it's a wall of MARTYRS but I feel like there are too many corpses on the back and front of it to be like a longstanding fortification - super unhygienic you see - and that many of the weapons and bits of kit that are there have just fallen and not been reclaimed. On the other hand, it makes for detailed terrain, some cool features and was generally not monotonous to paint.

Currently, I'm working on converting a Grey Knights Librarian and putting together the two Razorbacks my Purgation Squads will be hitching lifts in. The first razorbacks I've ever made too! Unfortunately, I'm converting them from Chaos Rhinos, so I've only got one suitable collection of bits to create this one:
(Pictured dry-fitted)


The other one I'm taking off the sprue now, I don't have the weapon mount or assault cannons to finish - so I'm doing a temp loadout with slightly converted predator las sponsons put together until I can get the bits for a second assault cannon loadout. @bitsandkits , when is your next restock?

Here are the bits that are going into the librarian at this point:



I also started a campaign with three friends, which I'm recording here:

terrain looks great. how many of those 'wall' kits is that?
if that is only one kit, then i may have to save up for one next month...
forgive my ignorance, but is that glaze on there - lots of it? i am sorry, seriously,
i have never had any of that stuff and am wondering if that is what it is...
i have only ever used standard acrylic paints,
and a long time ago - maybe 17 years now, i had some gw paints that usa mail order aded to a big order of figs i had bought from them - i guess they were old or something, but the guy sent me about 50 pots at about 50cents each...i used those for a while, but i don't know if there were any glazes in there. mostly, i used them to mix with my acrylics, to help the acrylics to cover a bit better, but i didn't like them alone too much, as they tended to layer on a bit thick for me tastes at the time...
anyways, i am seriously wondering what paints/glazes/washes and so on went into that speed painting job of yours.
tank looks great. conversions and originals is where it is at - especially with limited pieces, as would be expected to be an obstacle for any mechanic in perpetual war on the fringes of the universe...
i clicked on 'story time - will check it out.

yeah, i got down there, and tried to find your house, but got lost at a winery and almost missed my plane home.
wife was a bit pissed at the 3000dollars to return empty handed and with a headache, but this is the price that we pay.
that said, don't think for a second that that terrain is safe - i may teleport next time, avoid the winery, and poof, it's gone.
