My viewers got me to do this to myself during my twitch stream. A dragon riding a unicorn, on rollerskates, throwing a giant koi. My thumb acts as the interaction. There were many laughs to be had.

My girlfriend and I decided to have a crafts day. We are making this cute guardhouse, design is inspired by a medieval structure.
Reggie is a lonely guardsman who lives attached to his post, guarding a forgotten river crossing in a non-descript grasslands. He maintains the guardhouse. He made himself a firewood stock shelter, patched up his door when it was attacked by a bear, and did the roof himself.
Materials used: cardstock, balsa wood, styrene, foamcore, random beads, and a plastic tree.
Phase 1 of construction complete. Next, we will be adding battlements on the tower, a roof to the connecting hallway, a brick road to the stairs, and dirt.

Another of my own models. This is a custom Astra Militarum Manticore tank that I made back in 5th edition Guard. Before Manticores were cool. I’ve been thinking of redoing my Guard for sometime now and have decided to go for an Armageddon Steel Legion colour scheme, at least for the tanks. At the very least, I want to make my guardsmen look like they’ve been painted by someone with some more skill than when I first started.

Last weekend was painting time for Relic Knights.┬áLooking sexy. Did some OSL on the tank from the muzzle flash. I also have some water effects going on with the infantry. I wanted to go for more of a Starship Trooper vibe, but then they somewhat deviated from my vision XD. Finally, my little cat familiar (Static?) is Espeon flexing its power. I can’t wait until everything else is done ­čÖé

I think I will come back to the cat. I want the power markings to be brighter and more vibrant.

Getting started on this army. The assembly is complete. We have eSorscha, eIrusk, a couple solos, Black Dragon Pikemen, Winter Guard, 2 Warjacks, and a Conquest. I am looking forward to these being painted.

With all that pewter about, I have pinned many of the pieces on quite a few of the models that could handle it. And those legs of the Conquest were quite the feat to put together. But it is done.

These models will also have custom muddy slush bases of which I have done another test base. A dark mud with crushed glass snow. I am not sure which one to go with, but it will be one of the crushed glass bases. I think I am leaning towards the dark mud base.

Custom Muddy Slush Base Tests June 26, 2014

Here are a couple test bases for the Khador commission that I am starting. I have been tasked with creating muddy slush bases for the army. I think the lighter base has the churned and slushy feel down quite well, but the snow is not as apparent as the other base.

My recipe for the mud consists of fine sand flock, Forgeworld’s Rust Powder, some drops of Secret Weapon Miniature’s pigment fixer, and a few drops of water effects (black paint as well for the darker base), mixed together. The snow is then added on top while the mixture is on the base, more water effects is added to ensure the snow is adhered to the mud. I am trying out different colours and snows.

The darker base uses a snow flock on top, although it makes the snow more apparent, it is not a realistic as the Crushed Glass variant for the lighter base. I will try a couple more test bases, see if the crushed glass works with the dark colour.

I call it,┬áThe SDE Transportinator. Complete with nigh-indestructible aluminum casing and girl repellant. I found this case and the foam at Walmart. Although, the foam isn’t as dense or good looking as the black foam and machine cutting that Battlefoam and similar companies use. This way, you get a working transport for a fraction of the cost.

I am going to add more pictures on the front to represent which expansions we end up getting.

There’s a lot of shoddy cutting and marks everywhere, but it works. It’s actually is able to hold everything we need to play (the entire starter set), plus 3 expansions (Fireflow Denizens, Rock Top Gang, and another Dragon’s Clutch), and it has a bit more room to fit another one.
