One can never have enough Genestealers. Apparently.
I still have a pile of unpainted plastic Genestealers from the original Space Hulk and modified a few show some sort of representation for Acid Maw and Flesh Hooks.
Although painting them when you are trying to match a 30 year old colour scheme is a bit of a chore.
The last few weeks has been spent designing, building and painting MDF Tudor style buildings, but I did manage to get a twenty man unit of Greatswords finishd for Oathmark.
Some had been painted years ago, but they all needed attention to get them ready for action.
Used the paint scheme of those painted years ago as the basecoat and then matched the rest. I think the red and white uniform looks striking. I used Apothecary White Contrast paint on the white and then Army Painter Dark Tone on the rest of the model.
I am doing a very simple paint job on this Dust Axis Jagdluther, except for the effort taken to paint all the rivets!
I need to ink and drybrush it…
Following on from the previous post, the black paint I used was very matt, but it contrasts nicely with the grey base coat.
I am trying a grey and black scheme on a Tudor building as a change from the standard cream and brown to see what it will look like.
Now that some stores are opening again, I encourage everyone to go and support you Local Games Store. I popped in to Wargames Workshop in Milton Keynes today to buy something!
I went for the Sigmarite Dais, a nice piece that will go nicely with the rest of my Warcry ruins.
I can’t believe it is two years since I last did anything with my MDF landing craft. I was contacted by the reader recently regarding my prototype landing craft posted in 2018.
Following the last build, I made a number of changes to the drawing but never got around to getting one cut. The main changes were to add higher side panels, so when tall Dust walkers are in the craft, it does not look too top heavy.
This is the standard side panel option, more suitable for WWII games.
For a more Weird War setting, the higher sides work better for tall walkers.
Here it is with two 80mm round bases worth of Dust Axis walkers.
I also wanted to have a better method of having the ramp stay in the up position.
I had an idea to do a much larger landing craft to take the massive walkers, but if it took me two years to finish this landing craft, I would not like to say if it will ever get designed.
Using my cheap paints and drybrushing up the dark brown beams, the next Tudor house in my town project is nearly done.
I still think I am going to end up with a red tile effect roof.
