Well it is the end of 2017. I could post a few photos of my major painting and model building achievements from the last twelve months, but it would take ages to find them in the Loft Full Of Lead, especially as it is currently in Christmas chaos mode.
So instead, I present some spills from the 2017 MotoGP season, 27 of which belong to Marc Marquez, the 2017 World Champion.
Well, maybe not quite heaven, just the 8cm up to the cobbled harbour level.
This is the first attempt, 1cm high steps with each step being 3cm wide, enough for most bases. It is now wallpapering time.
I have some plans for more stairways that are a bit bigger, maybe even a ramp…
Just seen The Last Jedi on a large 2D iSense screen with big sound, best way to see it. I enjoyed it, but there are a bunch of “why did they do that” moments and “well, if that’s how to destroy a massive spaceship then why don’t they do that all the time?”. Maybe that is just the cynic in me, it was great fun.
After some quick inking, the Zombie horde for my Dust Axis force is complete.
Three units of five Zombies with a hero Zombie to lead them. Hero Zombie? That just does not sound right…
Things have been a bit slow here for the last few weeks due to some real life stuff going on. It has also been damn cold, so no chance to do any undercoating outside.
So the only painting in progress has been some Dust Zombies so I can finally get my Axis on the table.
Just been block painting and should be ready for a good slapping on of ink soon.
This Black Mamba Allied Dust aircraft was shown in an online magazine some time ago but apparently will not be out for quite some time.
Shame really, as it is a great looking plane and this is about the only model left that I would buy from the Dust range, mainly because I have loads of other stuff already…
