I am very happy with how the repaints turned out. I still have one more Consular before starting the squadrons.

I didn’t do any research as to if this scheme is one that’s canon, but I know that Clone trooper Rex and his army scheme is blue and white. So, that’s what I did.

The Acclamator was done almost completely with an airbrush. I redid the white and masked it off to do the blue. I couldn’t find any weapons anywhere on the ship, so I decided to sculpt a couple turbolasers on the hull. The Republic insignia on the bottom was sculpted on, and the one on top was airbrushed on by stencil.

It turns out the machine paint job of the Consular was quite messy so I fixed up the lines when I painted the blue and cleaned the white. I made the engine glow blue like the Acclamator, and painted all the guns and grey bits metallic instead.

All of the bikes have been built now. I decided to attach the Marines since it didn’t look like too much was obstructed if I glued them in place. Also, they just look so cool.

I am very pleased with how they turned out. Each one is quite unique in that almost all of them have their own weapon/trophy display of some kind, and they’re all attached differently. Very tribal looking.

For the bases, I am continuing the trenchwork/mud theme I had going for the infantry I did earlier. Since the bases are much larger, I can do much more too. I was given stone faces and chain and other random bits, so I put them on. The chains are attached to some of the faces so it looks like some sort of excavation is going on. There are also balsawood catwalks I made for the trenchwork part of the theme.

The brass rods are cut at different heights so the jetbikes look like they are zipping across uneven terrain. Once everything is painted, I will be adding the mud and water effects to complete the aesthetic. I’ve got the catwalks on 4 bases, maybe more are needed?

The next batch of minis are Space Marine Jetbikes! The White Scars like to add trophies and other bits to their steeds so that’s what I did. A bunch have chain glaives and shields attached to the bike. I have a few different materials like chain, rope, and wire.

I tried to give some variety. The shields are placed all over the bikes and the glaives are put on either side.

They are going to be mounted on brass rod attached to their fancy mud and rubble bases. Though I think I’ll be attaching the rods to the base and then have the jetbikes will just be friction fit on top.

Super excited for more conversions. This one is pretty much a scratch build. Inspired by PaintedByG I thought I would do a Cities of Sigmar themed endless spell too.

I had the arch laser cut and since I made the slope too steep, I decided to go with it. The bridge is going to be one of those fancy bridges with stairs on both sides and a motif in the center. The end of it has pieces of Azyrite flooring that are all broken up. I plan on adding water effects and colour to make it look like magic is pulling pieces in and building the bridge. I’m going to be doing this again for the other half of the spell.

It already looks great and I can’t wait to show you more.

I’ve always wanted to make custom objective markers, for any game system. This is an objective for my Soviets. I made all those little sandbags and made a swivel for the MG. The narrative for this is it is a small command outpost on the flank of the marching army. The officer is waving down someone off canvas. The brass rod is the base for a Soviet flag that will be flying or drooping.

The Domitar is ready to smash more Orks. Not much left of the one underfoot after the pew-pew and the squish-squish.

The characters get shields, and two of the spearmen get banners and swords. The banners are made of styrene plastic. Time to base all of them.

Guardhouse of Reggie the Vigilant July 2, 2015

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.
