6x6 Field, Produced!

(or Static grass isn't THAT messy, is it??)

Okay, so TWO fields done.  (it really wasn't that much work, as I spent more time documenting them than I did cutting them!)

2 completed fields with a small MDF hill
Several of you asked for a detailed tutorial, so here is how I made the field of crops, MY way:

Crops and Fields WIP

(crazy ideas with a welcome mat!)

Several people have asked for a detailed tutorial of how I am going to build up these 28mm fields. (Well that ISN'T this post!!)

  The first thing I'll say is that you do NOT have to go to the level I am headed towards in order to make these fields usable.  In fact, they are pretty darn good once you cut them out of the mat and sort out the black stripes!

Two quick examples from other blogs that did just that.

Desert Pipeline - FINISHED!

(See I can finish a project!)

Here is the Counts-as-Promethium-Relay-Pipes. (with a Space Marine for scale)
At least finishing this up gave me a chance to take some in-progress pics for the coloring of the terrain.

Supplies for my next project
Anyone got any ideas what this is going to be when I get done with them??

Desert Pipeline

(What else was I going to work on ??)

While I realize that this doesn't look like the series of buildings I promised you, I have been hard at work!

Test section of the Zagros Pipeline to New Herat
 Did I mention I was going to build a pipeline for my village?  I didn't?  Hmmmm...

It takes a village

(or how do I keep getting sidetracked from building models?)

Just a quick update on a completed part of a much larger WIP.

No, the Marines aren't the subject of this post... but they add some color!

Painting the Tacticals

(or Green goes the Tactical Marines...)

Now that I'm fielding the goodness that is Grav guns, I need to stop proxying them with old Rogue Trader models with esoteric weapons.

A straightforward assembly from the new Tacticals box, with a custom shoulder pad from Scibor, and this guy is ready for priming.

Marine Devastators

(or Why I shouldn't be allowed to visit game stores...)

I made the mistake of walking into +Atlantis Games & Comics out on the beach while I was in Norfolk this past week.  I knew better...

Three sprues of Space Marine heavy weapon goodness!
I'm just glad I escaped with my bank account intact!
