Here I am again. 😄 With travel abroad and camping scuppered due to Covid I had to entertain myself in a different way over the summer holiday. Luckily (?) I'm always virtually drowning in projects and things to do...
So, here are the fruits of this summer's labours:
First up: The big one, the Necromunda terrain project (still ongoing, btw). Here's what I built over the past few weeks:
This a collection of all the Necromunda terrain I have built so far.The new additions I built over the summer are (from left to right): The large Synthstill/destiller column, the bucket elevator, the old power reacter (partially hidden behind the nuclear waste silo), and the Necromunda dice tower.
I had a lot of fun building these and experimenting with new techniques (using a sand/tile grout mix for the basing and texuring of dirt and rust. Using AK interactive streaking grime and generally building in a more free-form and messy approach.)
But ofcourse, this table is nowhere near filled. I built more, but didn't get around to painting it, before work had to start again:
Hopefully I can get these painted over the next few weekends...
And now as to why I didn't get these painted during my vacation...
Ghost of Tsushima was released. And while I don't own a Playstation, seeing the enthusiastic responses from people, as well a playthrough by a friendly streamer got my love for (gaming in) medieval/mythological Japan again. Which prompted me to finally finish a 90mm samurai model I had lingering in paint in progress for months now:
She isn't still 100% finished, as the base still needs grass and tufts etc. added to it.
And I had to 3d print and paint this fun thing, couldn't help myself...
I maybe could have spent some time sanding out the print lines, but it was a spur of the moment thing, and they are a lot less noticeable in real life. I'm just waiting for the oil paint in the recesses to dry, and then I can varnish it and add the cords to wear it.
See you all next time!
