Mini-Molds

Got some heat-activated instant mold compound and toyed with it last night in a slow spell at work. Problem is I only have some old Green Stuff (like 5 years old) and it didn't soften very well so my results were pretty abominable. Still working out the kinks but here is the essential process, on some RTB1 plastic beaky marine heads and the only female Imperial plastic head in my collection, the gunner head from the SoB Inmolator kit. Next will maybe be some autoguns and old power fists

High Speed Death

I pre-ordered the Gangs of Commorraghkkkkytjkjl from my club +Beer and Bolters 40K . Not because I dig on Dark Eldar, but the fluff is kind of cool and I need to stretch my wings a little now that the airbrush is arrived.  It's because it seems a distant offshoot hybrid of Necromunda and that Tie Fighter game, and for the price you get some nice models. Also, I'm not a great painter and my experience has mostly been basecoat/wash/drybrush highlights, ink wash the flesh, yadda yadda yadda.  Picking a new army or force would allow some different finishes and looks that might prompt me to do some new stuff.  I guess, in short, that I am bored at the moment with Space Marines, Sisters, and Imperial Troops generally (you might remind me that I am taking my sweet time with the Genestealer Cult - more on that, later)

The models look great! 😍  The terrain looks hideous 😲😒😒 Note: I don't expect much when I pay 45 bucks for 16 figures on stands with all kinds of cool options









Anyway, I thought of a pretty interesting 1-point perspective trick that I can use to make a 2x2 foot game board for my High Speed Pain-Addicted Perverts to zip around on, and in addition to this it will give me an excuse to make terrain that fits the bill.  I'm thinking a long drop into nothingness, clouds, some faux brushed metal towers, skulls, and polyfill.  More later, but this inspiring thing out:


It occurs to me that the Haemonculi and the retinue of the Archons are pretty cool; maybe I will try Dark Eldar out in the coming year... Need to practice my hideous runes and evil sigils!

Muties and Other Scumbags

Well, I've been sitting on a pile of lead for a long time, and it just got bigger. So big, in fact, that it's one of those things: I'm not sure, anymore, that I can git her done.

I'm sort of at the point where more figs await paint than I have time to paint and so maybe I need to make some decisions. But! I did not lose all motivations between then and now, and some progress is made... BEHOLD! Muties, Gangers, Monsters, and some scumbags, also.

My home table now has enough gangs and critters and low-life to run around in the hive as a prelude to some serious Sisters/Raven Guard (my updated Dark Angels are converted to a Raven Guard successor chapter called The Storm Crows)/IG/Genestealer Cultists action...

The Epidemic of Hive Quintus? Karloth Valois moves lesser gangs against each other in a prelude to the GS/Nurglite/Tzeentchian uprising, stopped by an Inquisitor of the Ordo Sepulturum (frankly the most bestest named Ordo, IMHO)

Maybe I need some Nurgle cultists to go with these Genestealers I am finishing?
