Weekly progress: Big Sons of Horus Batch doooone, Sons of Sek tank

Nothing like chopping a load of work from your unpainted army. These 30+ guys were a 'delight' to get through.

Just Do it! The Process of Painting Pt2

BIG BATCH PAINTING BABY! I love a tip-list. 

With my own burning advice in my ears, I realised the best way to get over a painting ‘hump’ is to target it in the best way, by chopping a chunk out of it. Solution: Batch painting.
In reality, on any scale, all painting is batched. Even on a single miniature you are trying to paint a single colour across multiple areas of that one piece. Rather than switching colours for each leg, pauldron, weapon, you paint all of the colours of the miniature at each level. Paint the base, paint the metals, paint the detail.

Weekly progress; ALL THE SONS OF HORUS!

So I lucked out bigtime. This is the latest acquisition to the fold. An acquisition that DOUBLES my Sons of Horus army, and likely trebles the amount of resin in my army.

Arvus Lighter Conversion

I call it the 'Bug'.
That might be because its a 'bugabout' to get from A-Z, could be the mandible-like cabin,  could be because its small and flits around the place, but for whatever reason, when I look at this thing I think 'Bug'

So while having a look at ways to expand my Mortalis set I realised that I liked the idea of a landing bay and the associated debris and things that would come with it (and will look to get the Forgeworld one). Central to any landing bay however is something landed! Here is my Mechanicum Shuttle, come Arvus Lighter, that I'm halfway completed.

Dark Mechanicus of House Skellos

Like Scrapcode up inside yer, finding an entrance where it can, Scrapcode up inside yer... (Baboo Yagu thanks for that). Here is the current force.

Convert all the things!

All I wanted to add today was a gif showing all my converted Thralls, all 40 of these converted beauties.

Weekly progress; Sawing Realm of Battle boards. Sons of Horus Tactical Squad, Castellax and thralls.

This week, I've fallen in love with POWER SAWS!
A friend of mine requested some work for a project of his, whereby he was populating the inside of the tile of battle with actual scenery. Neither he nor I had the capacity to remove sections of the tile without cutting in from an edge. CUE POWER SAW. The realm of Battle board moulds are almost an inch thick in some places so heavy duty is needed. We were able to take the top off with a conventional saw, but the detail removal was important.
