Today I unsubscribed from games workshops news letters. The price difference between their aos khorne and submarines has brought them to a new absurb level.
I ditched the lot of them a few months back to be fair......

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. 👍

Callow Youth:

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:

The large caliber mortar on that model was my first attempt and building from scratch and I was extremely proud of that singular accomplishment.

In those days I used straight pins for rivets and I wasn't all that comfortable at making thin cuts in styrene.

Today I take such work routinely in stride without a second thought which goes to show that by continually pushing the envelope you will be amazed what you can accomplish.

Go ahead and surprise yourself............

Poetic License:

Might I be excused for a bit of poetic license for whilst the flavor of the Demolisher cannon is still intact, the oversized dimensions required a bit more detail.

The photos reveals that my work isn't very symmetrical but it will do.

Onward to the trunnion mount...........

I started putting together a Stompa I found for a quite cheap price, and I also finished painting my second Grot Tank. Gonna have to start a log for my Bad Moons here soon, I think...

Built a different-ish weapon for a Blood Warrior, (I picked some up on the cheap from eBay).
The whole halberd-looking thing works really well with the Blood Warrior.

Thinking about making another one.

Started basecoating a squad of Blood Angels Devastators. Unfortunately the responsibilities of RealLife(TM) put an end to that for a few hours, but work will continue later in the day! :grin:

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.



It's amazing what a little paint can do eh?

Thinking of a new project to do for the new year. I can hear Chaos calling me again. I thought I would try something different and maybe go for Slaanesh and The Flawless Host...

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.

Writing: Finally completed editing/posting Flesh is Weak (http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/109-original-works/122389-renegades-9-flesh-weak.html) after finishing the first draft during the weekend. It took me nearly two years, which is way too much time given its length (56K words - almost tied with Perfection's Cry for the longest thing I've ever written). Feels bizarre, not having that on my plate....

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.
