Both of these boards are going to look great. I'm a big fan of the Pegasus cathedrals, my only complaint with the one I made was that it wouldn't stay together, specifically the buttresses that sweep out from the sides kept coming out until I glued the whole thing to a board that didn't allow the arms to move.

Thanks guys. I'm finding the same problem with one of my buttresses too (bet you don't read that every day) and I'm thinking that the judicious application of blue tac could solve the problem for me.

My internet has taken an hour to fail to upload a bunch of photos, but I got a few from a 750 game against chaos today (planetstrike) and progress on the forest board. Casting resin, I have discovered, is nasty smelling stuff.



Most of my deployment (forgot snipers and a piece of his terrain)



And the first turn, right before he ate my army with obliterators and flamers.

More photos later, or possibly even a batrep if I have time.

Secret Weapon's Rolling Plains tablescape... well, three tiles of it anyway. Resin is curing overnight so I thought I'd snap a progress shot. What would I do next time? Not pour the whole section in one go, so that I could paint fishes or put plants in between layers. By next time, do I mean the remaining three tiles? Maybe... what's it to you?





Cathedral done, stained glass window not well shown off here and the photo I took to do that hasn't uploaded. I'll fix this later.



Trees, trees... So many trees! I am getting thoroughly sick of messing around making trees from reluctant flock and recalcitrant salt-water or pine tree sticks. Damn tropics... Also, bushes and hedgerows on the right. Not sure if I want to make some high, cultivated looking hedges for the cathedral.



Well, that's all that Telstra has deigned fit to grace the internet. More later!

Well, cracked the two boards out for a sneak peek this sunday...





Some minor details yet to be done here and there, but on the whole, sorted. One major board left to go then the club provides the rest for the day.

Phew, I'm pooped. Night all!

Ok!

It's been a quiet period (Wait! No it hasn't!) hobby wise at least, with focus mostly on work and wife. I've managed to snap together some excellent 4Ground terrain, but it wasn't until last night that I managed to put some brush to model and start this:



Which I've now added to my collection of small flamboyant fantasy humans:



Also, I grabbed a snap of the fishes in my river tile - can you spot them?


Lastly, once I've got some more empire basic troops ready for painting, I'll be getting my teeth sunk into this pile of tanks:

I'm pretty excited about these tanks. When these are completed, my Tank Company will have:
1 Shadowsword as the command tank (well... my flagship tank)
3 Baneblades that can be refitted as hellhammers (Apocalypse formation)
1 Leman Russ Vanquisher (the old forgeworld Stygies VIII kit, I love it)
9 Leman Russ Battle Tanks (3 with sponsons, 3 magnetised for sponsons if desired, turrets able to be changed to other variants as desired)
3 Leman Russ Demolishers with sponsons (1 magnetised to be turned into an Executioner)
1 Leman Russ Executioner with sponsons
3 Hellhounds (able to be changed to any variant)
3 Scout Sentinels (2x multilaser, 1x Missile Launcher)
3 Flatbed Chimera Tracks (likely these will go to the artillery Regiment to swap out the emplaced earthshakers where needed.
I'd like another few to make permanent Eradicator and Exterminator variants, but I can swap them out of the leman russ squadrons for everything short of apocalypse.

And after that, I need to make some staked defences for a fantasy town... watch out garden, I'm coming to chop bits of you up!

I highly recommend it mate! The flash wasn't too bad to clean up and once that's done it's pretty well instant terrain. Painting it was pretty easy too, the whole thing took me a few hours over the weekend to make a floor with a design, paint the walls and buttresses and spray gold gribbly bits, then paint clear plastic with glazes for the stained glass effect.

Erfolg!
A neglected progress shot, sadly left on the SD card for days...


And the third Baneblade, complete and magnetised!



And the logistic element so far - forgeworld will hopefully provide me with a recovery vehicle to supplement this!


Next this month, I will continue with terrain and a few fantasy models for my Empire Regiment of Renown / Mordheim band. Bring on the bits!

My next 40k guy is receiving some attention during my uni lectures:


And then in the harsh harsh LED lighting that didn't quite register with the camera, I've finished these four gentlemen.








Short of basing, I will have Mr Beatstick McBullgryn done tonight too at this rate!
