Mars Attacks: General Tor & 107K views

Evening guys and girls,

small update for you today, been working on some of my pile of mars attacks stuff this week and have just about finished General Tor the martian hero from the boxed game:

and with his helmet on:

This was a massively enjoyable model to paint, I have a set of 5 martian marines followin gon not far behind him so expect to see them soon.

In other news the blog has now passed 106K views, this shocked me. never thought that this blog would attract that many views especially after various periods of me disappearing.

All I can say is a big thank you to all of you who take time to read and comment on my ramblings :)

Deadzone Terrain WiPs

Afternoon guys and girls,

As threatened earlier in the week todays update will be terrain focused. Over the past few weeks ive been gradually building up a few bits and pieces for deadzone, most of it is smaller scatter terrain however I have one ruined building to show:

I have filled the gaps between panels in with some milliput to help make it look like a solid building instead of something constructed of pieces. I still need to do the same on the inside walls and add some interior detail. Theme for this place will be a casino.

I have a larger intact building im working on at the moment too however not enough profress has been made for it to be picture worthy.

Onto the more scattery bits:

These rubble piles are based around the plastic ones form the battlezones ruins sprues, I've mounted them on bases and added more rubble. Given they will be used in deadzone I've made sure that they arent bigger than the grids on the mat.

The final piece is a small ruin meant to represent internal walls of a larger collapsed building.

I have had fun making these as I'm not normally very terrainy, I guess the challenge will be painting them up haha.

Anyway thats it for now, I'll be back next week with some martian bits

INQ28: Slaaneshii Magos WiP

Evening guys and girls,

apologies for the lack of recent updates, my 6 day week stints at work are hammering me, currently starting my 9th 6 day week........

As such my hobby time is taking a beating as I'm just too tired most nights to do much if anything. The bits I have been doing have been less intensive stuff such as building up some deadzone terrain. This will feature in the weekends update.

The bits of energy I have had I have thrown into this little project, after seeing some of the amazing entries for the Iron Sleet invitational and then getting badgered by Mr Feral I have set about working on an INQ28 Villain, a Slaaneshii Dark Mechanicus Magos:

This guy is heavily WiP, the base model is one of the FW Myrmidons which I must say are absolutely fantastic .

The theme behind this guy is Slaanesh as gluttony, the Magos devours knowledge and is hunched under the weight of the data stacks on his back that store it all. I've added a cracked ceramic mask showing his bionics underneath.

I will be making a sonic blaster for his weapon mount and he will have a traditional ad mech axe staff. The 2 smaller arms work well as a nod to a keeper of secrets too.

Now I cant promise fast progress on this guy as the word bearers and deadzone come above it in the hobby queue but I hope to get him finish off over the coming weeks.
