Today’s Forcast – Light Showers Followed By Exploding Shells.

Posted by Tom Richter on September 5, 2008

After three days of messing around with green stuff and painting these bastards in between attending to needy babies the Mortar teams are now complete save basing and clear coat. Originally the plan was to use a darker grey, but I didn’t have great coat grey on hand and didn’t feel like messing around with mixing. Aside from Holt and Aiyana the list will be based with snow, but I’m waiting till everything is done to do that, since it’s a pain to mix up small quantities and I don’t want to mix too much just have it go to waste.

The plan was to move onto the behemoth next, but I wanted a breakfrom modeling and started Aiyana instead. She and Holt are being painted to match the rest of my merc collection. Still haven’t figured out how to paint her hair though. She’ll be done tomorrow, and if I have another manic attack the behemoth may be well under way by morning.

If it weren’t for the associated depression I’d love the hyper productivity of mania. Hurray for being Bi-polar!

Day One: Making Mortars More Menacing

Posted by Tom Richter on September 2, 2008

I didn’t get a whole lot accomplished in the first day. Here’s a pretty crappy picture of my new improved Mortars. I’ll be building carriages for them to make them look transportable. My plan is to chop up an old as hell out of print Warhammer Fantasy Dwarf Anvil of Doom to make simple little carts to attach those more menacing beauties to.

Like I said previously, I never liked the Mortar model it really seemed too small to pack the range and distance it delivers. Now my opponents will learn to fear some respectable artillery pieces. Day two should see the completion of these bad boys and then it’ll be on to giving the Behemoth a make over.

Victim of my conversion.

Here’s a nice picture of the model I’ll be hacking to bits. I’m considering using the anvil as a base for something down the line, but it would require removing a lot of the details. Probably a waste of time, really what am I going to put standing on an anvil anyway?
