Not the best of games, but an excellent setting to explore.
Friday a week ago, me and some friends had a hobby evening. Inspired by the DMC 5 footage I decided to build some extra Hellgate London demons to add to the few I had already converted a few years ago.
The rough and ready basics were done on that friday night:
Together with their older siblings:
During that weekend, the greenstuff phases followed:
This Saturday, the airbrush was employed for primer and basecoat (and as I was at it, a second project also got some paint sprayed on).
Which, today, resulted in painted miniatures:
Here's how they match up with their elders:
And as I waited for paint to dry on the demons, I used the downtime to progress on the vendomats:
Ofcourse I couldn't help set up a little scene:
Templars fighting to reclaim a base lost to the demonic incursion:
As an added bonus, yesterday my sister came over (she builds 1/12th scale dollhouse style rooms, I guess it runs in the family!) to help me get over my nervousness about soldering LED circuits.
Baby steps, but so much options for terrain:
Now, I also mentioned a shout out to a deserving man with a wonderful project. The man in question is Mel Bose a deeply likeable man with a very informative Youtube Channel about building wargaming terrain. What makes him especially interesting is that he regularly collaborates with artists from other disciplines to exchange techniques and knowledge. Why mention him now?
Well, he has a Kickstarter to publish a book collecting all his accumulated know-how in physical format. While I have seen most of his videos (and I advise you to watch them too, if you have an interest in terrainbuilding!) I am somewhat fond of terrain-building books, and I know his is guaranteed to be a good one!
