The Grand Army of Shame

(Hey, they're not cardboard proxies! You ought to be pleased!)

A few weeks ago I drove down to Jacksonville, Florida, to participate in a day of gaming and 40k nerdery (that is a word!).  The week that proceeded it was a flurry of model building, basing and priming.  I didn't actually get any more models to a finished state, but at least it wasn't a Grey Tide swamping the enemy there!

Display Case Flooring

(or Is there such a thing as too much supporting detail?)

Currently my armies reside in a two-part display case that also serves to support a printer, scanner and Network Storage.  I really don't have room in my current space for a large mutli-tier transparent case, and to be honest, I don't think I'd fill one, anyway!

Aquila Gate - Pt 1

(or Is bigger always better in terrain?)

Frame of the gate in progress
  In preparation for a day of gaming this past month, I decided to build some larger terrain pieces that weren’t just ruins.  Several different 40k terrain pieces inspired me to do a larger piece that could be used as a whole or in pieces.  I wanted to build a gate that would allow Land-Raider sized vehicles to pass, while still providing the feel of a walled citadel.

Desert Fortifications - Firestorm Redoubt

(or Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... right?)

So yes, I have managed to make some fortifications OTHER than the Desert Towers in my previous posts.  In this case, I wanted to scratchbuild a fortification CHEAPLY, yet still make it visually appealing and roughly match the dimensions of the GW kit.

Has it been 6 months?

(or how time flies when you aren't blogging!)

My computers keep multiplying!
I guess I have been falling down on my blogging duties over the past few months! In all fairness, I've been busy with changing to a new, much more fun job, and all the while continuing to run photography workshops!

First Company Captain - BaC Conversion

(or if one grav pistol is good, then two is awesome, right?)

I've begun work on my conversion of the Kurtha Sedd figure from Betrayal at Calth.  Not much of the actual conversion process to show here as it is pretty straightforward.

Plastic Contemptor part 2

(a bit of progress, I say...)

Not much to report here other than the fact that my Contemptor is ready for decals!

(Now to find ones that scale properly to the shoulders and armored body of this Dread.)
