Media - warhammer 40k
Birthday haul! This should keep me going for a while. And I'm getting another three Warhammer Underworlds warbands from my parents when we see them weekend after next. 😅

I was having a bit of a struggle with my new drybrushes, you can't tell too much from my previous photos of Lady Harrow's Mournflight, but I couldn't get the drybrushing to come out properly all the time, it kept globbing and looking like crap. I decided to carefully watch Artis Opus' tutorial video and do some experimenting and, counterintuitively, it turns out I was actually taking TOO MUCH paint off the brush! Because the new brushes are so big and thick and soft compared to what I'm used to using (an EXTREMELY ratty old Games Workshop drybrush), you actually need to leave more paint on the brush and just really gently flick the end of the brush across the surface. Check out this gorgeous gradient I did tonight, I think I've got the hang of it now!

I've been taking proper photos of my Games Workshop miniatures and posting them to Flickr, mum saw them and emailed to say she was very impressed and that I hadn't lost my touch. She ALSO mentioned that she had photos of me when I was much younger having a Warhammer 40,000 battle with her on the dining room table! She brought them over and I scanned them in and cleaned them up, and oh boy, check out the youth and the serious expression. 😂 There was a date on the back of July 1996, so I was 13! I'm playing my Eldar, but I think I must have borrowed a friend's what looks like Orks because those miniatures at the far end of the table are definitely not mine!

There we go, all the terrain is put together (miniatures included for scale)! Really happy with how it's ended up, the bits that are already silver are the pieces of the old terrain that I incorporated into the new bits. For the pipes I actually pulled them apart and reattached them in new ways, for the walkway at the left I just glued it as it was onto the side of the new one.

Aw yeah, got two sets of more of the type of terrain that comes in the Kill Team box. I'm thinking of pulling apart a couple of the existing pieces that I have and attaching some of this to it (it's all interchangeable and I've only fully painted two pieces so far, the rest is just base-coated).

And we're done!

I was batch-painting ten Astra Militarum guardsmen and it was getting a bit tedious and I wasn't feeling like I was making any progress, so I chopped it down to just the six I need for my squad. Feeling much better now, they're coming along excellently!

Huzzah, that's the last bits of my Astra Militarum squad! I also bought some teeensy little magnets and am going to try magnetising the arms so I can swap guns.

Man, the details on these Plague Marines are absolutely crazy!

Current status: alcohol, fiddly plastic bits, and sharp cutting things. What could go wrong?
