Made a scratchbuilt base for my Fireprism. It hoovers over a set of Alien pilars of unknown origin, like one of my Windriders do aswell.
Here you can see the pilar (Pre-painted). The Fire Prism hoover over a pair of pilars mounted on a 40mm round base. And I found great balance so no wobble when I move it around. 👍
Back in the days when I was a callow youth I did so covet a FW Baneblade and to that end I started this scratchbuilt version. I also attempted to convert an Armorcast Baneblade (Note that it still sports the original Armorcast tank treads) model into the more aesthetically pleasing and highly detailed version of the Forgeworld model with the result seen below:
Not painting much today, but I found myself with a little smile over a few photos I found of my Sicaran.
Sometimes it's easy to forget how simple your model started out, before you started painting it. All those hours of steady hands and finding the right combinations of colours to bring it to life.
I found, by pure accident, a before/after shot of my Sicaran which happened to have the exact same angle - I found it a bit fun to look at, to remind me why I do what I do. Bringing life to a little lump of resin and plastic.
Lots of prep and tidying done, bought a small component storage box to clip all my sprues into less vehicles which cleared a tonne of space on my desk, prepped a metal vindicare assassin and a metal Lysander (yes metal!)whom I am converting to my own diy chapter so, had to file off all chapter symbols and drill out his head, as it will be helmets only on my termies, also filed off the crux terminatus, as I prefare the forgeworld one, which will be grafted on, lots of work and my own fault for leaving models sooooooo long!
Mor conversion work on my third dreamforge leviathan Mortis. Converted the reaper scythe upper arm section into a third rear carapace weapon mount. Shortened his spine to make him lower and more solid looking, started GSing his new face. Pics to go in the Plog soon. I plan to add all the spare armour plates I have to armour him right up and use him as a reaver variant.
Next up: Through Thunderstorms Shone, which will be an X-Men fanfic (also got 4K words in on that last night... hopefully I can keep up at least half that rate). But after that, back to the 40K and Renegades universes, for Renegades 13: Nucerian Sands, and then finally finishing up Lorgar's Betrayal. I've gotten the definite impression, recently, that I work best when I'm plotting multiple things, but only actually writing one.
