Took wee break away from painting minis to do a bit of terrain. An overnight print job, plus an afternoon and evening painting.

I've been playing with this design for a landing pad for a while now, but I've never got around to finishing it. I feel like it could use more work on the walls. I decided stuff it, i'll print it as is and see how it turns out.

Impressive.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Decided to give a more powerful CAD program than I've used before a try. Spent the past couple of evenings playing around with it, learning some of the basics. Figured I'd jump on the Repressor bandwagon... Here's my attempt at it.

Prototype print. stuck a few bits on it to get an idea of how it'll look once it's got guns on it. A few things needing adjusting but it's more or less how the finished product will look.

Very nice, are those cupola slots able to take the sororitas cupola or just the SM rhino one?

That sister's face just screams 'Ugh I hate this thing, it's too heavy and hurts my neck, why did the Canoness make we wear this?!  She didn't even let me empty it first...  Oh Emperor, it's running down my faaaacccceeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!'.

Been doing my nutt with batch painting sisters and repressor conversions, so I decided to have a little change of pace and have some fun. 

 

Pulled out Greyfax who has been sitting built and primed but otherwise unpainted for about the past 8 months. Dusted her off (literally) and set up my airbrush so i could practice some blending.

Figured 'what the hell' and blocked in some parts of her armour. ended up doing some washes and highlights as well.

Bonus super secret hidden detail. She's rocking out some power armour Louis Vuittons.

Pretty much finished Greyfax, I might do a little more work on her hat but she's about done. I'll get around to basing her at some point, i quietly hold a small spark of hope for a codex and a plastic release, but if i'm going to have to rebase my whole army anyway then i'm as well waiting a little while.

Now that I've more or less finished my 'production-procrastination' I should really get on with tackling the growing hobby back log... A few weeks ago I was given 6 melta girls, one is GW original, the other 5 are chinese. I wouldn't go out of my way to procure chinese girls myself but as i was gifted them i have decided to give them a good home, the casts aren't too bad.. some recasting artifacts here and there, mainly on the Aquila shoulder and to of them are missing half a foot, otherwise quite reasonable. I should really strip them down and repaint from scratch, but it's a lot of effort to go to and i'm not sure how the resin would react to being stripped. I think i'd rather have them look 'ok' from the table top than run the risk of melting them into a puddle of goop.

 

As of writing this my hobby backlog is:

6 Melta girls (as mentioned above)

3 rhino hulls, half painted.

5 repressor conversions, top plates and dozer blades. Needing some edge highlighting and some other bits and bobs. (these things have been a total pain in the ass from the moment they were printed)

I need to get my hands on more SM Rhino style storm bolters, and suitable heavy flamers. i had originally tried to one of the heavy flamers from the Immo sprue, needless to say it didn't work out. I just couldn't get both sides of the 2 part mold to line up properly. So it's looking like i'm going to have to scavenge for bits.

 

Add to this my local GW was having a birthday bash as they were turning 29 (i think) so I popped along to put in an direct order to get some raffle tickets, didn't win anything. ;(  But I did get a few freebies from having an order of a certain value. A bag and a few art cards, i think, i'm not entirely sure as they had none in store and had to order them for everyone. I'll post pics of that stuff when i get it.

My actual order though, a unit of repentia, a command squad, some Heavy bolter girls, a simulacrum and a priest. I'm REALLY looking forward to the painting Hospitaller and the Repentia to a slightly lesser extent.All that skin tone is going to be a challenge considering how much i feel i struggle with even doing faces. That Dialogus though... ohmy.png  ...Shudder.
