I hate to admit it, but several years ago I bought a brilliant trench system from Kalistra…and then did nothing with it.
This is a modular system that will easily stretch the width of a four foot table. I want to add some more balsa planking to the duckboards and make it a bit more messy.
So having finally bought a compressor for my airbrush, I feel that I can have a go at painting it up so we can try some plan some storm the trenches games for Bolt Action, Konflikt 47, Dust and Steam Wars.
In preparation for a large Steam Wars game, I am getting some paint on my latest Bob Olley Exo-Armour Scrunts from his recent Kickstarter.
The first three are finished, the next three are just getting started.
These Aberrant Games miniatures are really nice SWAT style models. I wantd a very plain colour scheme so went for black with grey pouches and knee pads.
There is a Shotgun and a Flamer in there with three Assault Rifles and an Engineer Specialist.
Black is a hard colour to paint!
This was one of the first models I undercoated with my new compressor, the effort required to finish it off was not too much, just some silver, black and brass.
The weapon in the nose section is removable so I can run it in Steam Wars as just a transport or a tank!
Now that Easter is well and truly out of the way and life has returned to whatever passes for normal around here, I can start doing fun stuff again.
I have been continuing to try out my new compressor and have been spraying large stuff so I can practice a bit, I have some old hills around here somewhere I can have a go at…
I resprayed the underside and finished the top of my Quinjet, and I am now calling it finished. But as this was bought as a test piece of terrain, I may decide to respray it again sometime.
