Although they had an outing recently, here are my finished Meridian Miniatures Gunbots, decided on green, simple really.
I like these little guys, they fit in with my British Army nicely, a basic robot design, not as advanced as certain other robots I have used in the Mechanica for example.
I will be painting most of the upper hull of the GR-75 Transporter a few colours, grey and gray. Well I actually have about four versions of grey and plan to paint all the panels in different greys. I have started on the nose section, so if it goes wrong, I can just respray that bit.
Having designed the Industrial Processing Tower based around a Pringles tube, I thought I would design a Pringle-less tower, something that does not require munching through a pack of snacks (although having a couple of teenage girls around always helps in that respect.
This construction, the Industrial Office Tower, uses level at the same heights for the levels as the Industrial Processing Tower so they fit together nicely with the joining ramps.
There is still loads of work to do on all the boring flat surfaces, I have plenty of sketches that I will turn into designs in the next few weeks.
I have also been experimenting with a removable wall section to allow models to be positioned inside.
Hiding tabs is sometimes quite tricky, so in some places, I make a feature of it and make some interesting alternating patterns, such as where there are raised sections around the stairwells.
On the top level is large design, but I think that may be going or at least changing to something else.
The most difficult bit has been designing the stairs, they are almost finished, watch this space. Some of the supports were a bit short on this iteration and did not line up with the wall tabs.
Laugh out loud super violent dead good Deadpool. I never like to give anything from a movie away, so no specific comments but I really enjoyed it. It is a very different Marvel movie from the Cinematic Unviverse story line.
Stick around for the nuggets at the end.
So after the block painting comes the ink.
I may yet go back and fill in the skull eye sockets with black paint, but basically it is finished.
This is a great sculpt, maybe a bit smaller than I was expecting, but I really like the quality of Wargame Exclusive models. I must order some more!
By the time I had finished slapping paint onto the resin Inquisitors car, it was a lot less black and grey than I thought it was going to be. Needs inking.
This resin Inquisitor Car from Wargame Exclusive is a great looking model, another I have been delaying in painting.
Being of a Batmobile type design, I thought I would paint it black, but black is such a hard colour to do. So I decided on dark Panzer Grey instead…which is nearly black…
A few weeks ago, we had a game of 40K, my Grey Knights against Mr Steinbergs close combat Chaos Nurgle horde.
We played one of the missions, with the Grey Knights defending a settlement. This was not an ideal mission for a small elite force as they could not maneuver much and use their strengths, they were going to have to stand there and take it.
Putting units into cover seems like a good idea, but in the current rules, heavily armoured models don’t really need cover.
The Grey Knights would have to rely on a good few shooting rounds before they get assaulted, there were plenty of targets, but it was difficult to reduce their numbers as these Nurgle chaps sure are resilient!
Terminators in cover still get whittled down quickly with Smite, when there are only five models in a unit, Smite hurts.
And the Chaos horde keeps coming.
On foot or by wings.
Having to hold the center of the settlement was a real pain as my favourite tactic for the Grey Knights to to teleport around keeping out of trouble until it is time to strike.
The Autocannon armed Dreadnought sure can deal out some punishment, I reckon I should just field ten of these.
Most of my Grey Knight units usually make great use of the Gate Of Infinity psychic power, but in this game there was not much teleporting going on.
In the end, a couple of units did relocate, but the end was nigh. Having my nice newly painted Grand Master Voldus killed with one six wound Smite was the last straw.
The Grey Knights will have their revenge on another field of battle!
