It's beeen a while, but it seems I finally have a little bit of hobby progress to show...
I started by spraying the ruins with GW's textured spray paint from quite a few years back. I'm not sure if I still have enough for the entire Basilica, but I'll have to deal with that in due time. Anyway... The next step was to first spray-paint the roof with GW's Chaos Black and then the walls with Army Painter's Skeleton Bone. A little cardboard to prevent overspray was all that was required. The doors and windows then had a matt black craft paint brushed on. Several coats was required to acieve a complete coating, but I recon an airbrush will let me do that more effectively for the 'main event'. Next, the ruins got a light grey drybrush on all(!) surfaces before this hightlight on the windows got overbrushed with GW's Chainmail. Finally, I sloppily painted the sand on the base level and upper floors with the brown from our table project last year and sprayed it with soapy water to make it run and (re-)reveal the drybrushed highlights.
Oh, and the roofs. Back and forth with drybrushed Dwarf Bronze and Dark Angels Greeen washes. Not very scientific, and rather time-consuming. Watching paint dry, and all that.
So, there you have it! My first update in a long time.
I'll try not to leave it quite as long until the next one...

And so it ends….
With the Razorwing Jetfighter finally finished, the last of my Dark Eldar models are complete. And I do not plan (or intend) to purchase, build or paint any more 40K models until the new rulebook are thoroughly scrutinized.
Do I sound a little “tired”? I am. Besides having moved and had a lot happening at work this last 8 months, I have managed to finish over 120 dark Eldar models, all built and painted to the best of my ability. I am quite satisfied, although nothing turns out exactly as I had planned, and finishing about 2 months after schedule.
I will probably ad one or two more Named Characters (Jørn is helping med find alternative models then that from the GW range to represent them, big thank you to Jørn), but now it is time for war gaming (not army building, apart from the fact that I have 24 High Elves unpainted on my work desk – but that will be covered once I deploy my own blogg).
