First up, my wind generator from ‘The Last Stand at Glazer’s Creek’ that I first posted on last December has moved forward a bit. Here is shot of where it was when I last posted on it and where it is now .
I painted up the frame and the lean-to shed. The shed is silver with several shades of brown to rust it up.
For fun I parked my Ferrari in the shed. Given its perfect scale if I am not careful it might be 40k'ed up with a futuristic jet engine mounted on its back and some pop-up bolters on the bonnet.
I painted the decking to give it a dark weathered look.
I also started the top fan rotor section. I want it to be rusty over white paint.
This is just some dry brushing.
Slowly getting there but still quite a bit to go.
On a Sunday outing to the local model/toy shop with my little man we picked up some cars each. I found a cheap truck to much around with.
I wanted to see if I could rust it up a bit. But I went a bit overboard.
It is not finished yet but is a bit of fun. It might end up with the wind generator if it turns out ok.
The hot knife has been busy too. Here are some more of my foam adventures. [If you missed it here is how my first play with the foam knife went]
This time I was attempting to add more flat areas to my rock formations so models can be place on them. This piece was 10mm foam cut into small sections and stacked up. I glued it with PVA and had no trouble cutting through the joins with the hot knife.
The base from two stacked sheets.
Then I carved the base up a bit more.
Three pieces for ease of carving.
And here it is with texturing carved into it.
Should not be too hard to climb in-game. The first platform is only 3" high...
Lots of positions to take cover in.
First coat of paint. It will need a second to even out the colour on the top and base sections. I'll also add rocks to the base like I have with other rock pillars.
Then I went crazy and added a few more. I'll have eight rock formations in total (not counting the cliff that I started in my last post).
Plenty to fill a board for a close and personal 'Gorkamorka' feel game.
I am slowly getting though it all. It is really good fun to carve.
Not that I am short on terrain, but I am a real sucker for old FW terrain pieces. When I saw a guy in my Buy-Swap-Sell group parting with these FW sandbag defences I threw him an offer. I initially never heard back and thought they had gone but after a few weeks he contacted me and said that the sale had fallen through and I could have them if I was still interested, How could I say no?
It shouldn't be too much work to repaint the bases to match my terrain.
Comments are always treasured so feel free to say g'day.
Tally ho gents.
