|Quick someone go and get the WD-40!|
I spent most of this weekend's hobby time clearing out my hobby room. Building a new shed forced me to move all the 'I can't quite throw that away' boxes into the room and it was utterly cluttered and unlivable (disclaimer: I'm a clean desk type psychopath). Throwing out about six garbage bags worth of abandoned projects, not quite as nice as I thought it would be scenery and 'interesting shapes' helped fit the rest of the pile into a corner of the new shed. With this done I turned my attention to my bloated bitsbox. I took a few hours to sort useful bits and throw out useless ones. Boring but necessary stuff (IMHO).
|An unbelievable crapload of square bases turned out to be part of my unsorted collection of Warhammer |
|There's me building models without a manual wondering about people who can't even assemble IKEA furniture with one.|
|Never mind an engine, just get him more ammo!|
I decided more flamer fuel is always good, so I added an oil drum and extra tanks to the model.
|Insert obligatory Dakka Dakka Dakka here.|
I also tried to give it a reasonably 'go-getty, burn, burn' type of pose. after all, inside each Kan is one hell of an angry grot trying to murder whoever steps in front of it.
|Throwing bits at old Ork Trukk is not just fun, its therapeutic.|
|Insert obligatory 'Needs more Dakka' here.|
|The backend of the vehicle needed some bits to, luckily I have a huge box full of those.|
|Six Kans have been restored.|
|One Rokkit buggy is ready for combat.|
|Metallic spray applied.|
|Adding paint helps make this look less like a mess of glue and plastic.|
|Maybe I should've just stopped painting at this stage and called them 'tabletop ready'.|
|I could've skipped a lot of steps above if I had just started out with a bronze color.|
|Note to self: you're almost out of VMA Rust. Buy a new pot.|
|Time to add some color to the rust, typing this I suddenly remember I meant to add some purple tones this time. Missed chance.|
|At this point another WD-40 joke should be added.|
|Have I ever mentioned how much I love owning and using an airbrush?|
|Alclad II protects the paint and gives a nice base to add some oil and weathering effect. If only I could decide what to add...|
* This is a fake deadline, I've taken the advise over here at Leadplague to heart.
