And earlier today my daughter was born, weighing 9 pounds and 3.5 ounces (or 4.18Kg in metric) kinda tired so here is a place for family and friends to see pictures whilst i go pass out (no sleep last night :( for obvious reasons)

Cheers

X-wing miniatures soooo many tokens

Over the last couple of months I’ve been playing fantasy flight’s game X-wing miniatures which is cracking fun, however like all FF products it comes with LOTS of cardboard crack. So armed only with the freeware version of google sketch up, and some inspiration from other thingiverse designers, I’ve come up with the following token box to tame the card madness.

This prototype print works quite well but is a bit awkward to open, so I’ll make a couple more modifications before posting it back on thingiverse.

Cheers

Necro-fun-da – Add on pack ;)

So I’ve been making terrain now for… okay lets say Many years… and it still surprises me how good something as simple as a two coat dry brush looks. Okay so it’s the addition of the spray texture that really sets off the drybrushing, but still you go instantly from flat black blob to all the detail really popping out. Anyhoo pictures so you can see what I mean…

So as were still waiting on our daughter turning up I guess I’ll try and get this add on ‘pack’ for the 6s2hit Necromunda terrain completed.

Cheers

Snowy Ruins – 40k Terrain – Pt5 Complete

*phew* with two weeks left to go till Caroline’s due date just got this set finished in the nick of time ;) Anyhoo so i put another coat of just pva & bicarb paste over the snow patches then flocked with GW snow and tapped it smooth with a finger, this mostly seems to have solved the seep-age problem and the set is now delivered for use on an Urban Matz snow territory 6’x4′. But enough talk, pictures…

Hope this amuses ;)

Snowy Ruins – 40k terrain commission – Pt 4

Paint glorious paint… thuth I forgot how long it takes to base coat a terrain set, I spent 3hrs yesterday painting dark grey *snooze* anyhoo got a few more colours on this evening but it’s still looking pretty basic. But it’s a start and it’s worth noting that every terrain set goes through this dull looking part, it’s where you take it afterwards that makes people eyes pop ;) but here are I few in progress pics…

Hope this amuses, and I’ll keep adding process pics here till it’s almost done.

cheers

Snowy Ruins – 40K Terrain Commission – pt 3

I’ve been using my day off today to get caught up with the spraying of this terrain set, after having a bit of an incident with overspray from the texturing earlier in the week (need to recoat the window sill, oops!) I decided to pickup a little spray booth with extractor and ho my does it do the job of sucking away all of the excess paint, and any smells. So if your wanting to spray large amounts mini’s or terrain indoors I would highly recommend one, also if you use an airbrush I also recommend ‘Vallejo – surface primer’. Anyhoo here are some slightly dull looking in progress pics:

Hope this amuses
