I had completely forgotten how long it takes to paint a large building! Dry brush, wash, dry brush – wash – and so on. Time consuming and a “lonely atmosphere”. When I started out in December, my goal was to finish two gaming tables and terrain to go with it, by the end of February. Did not manage that, but now I am finally finished:)
First out – pictures of the Shrine of Aquila:
Second – pictures of the bridge, tank traps (one remake and one new) and finally, two new craters:
When it comes to the craters and the tank traps most people know I like to try to “improve” on the basic design of the GW kits. So I crumbled up “jacko foam” and used my concrete/sand/glue mix (and spare parts) in order to blend it all in with the fixed craters etc on my new “City of death” gaming table. Finally, pictures of the finished board with finished terrain:
I am so much looking forward to my game Saturday. An all day / all evening game with Inger Helene initiating the gaming table and new terrain (3000p Orks vs Ultramarines)! Inger Helene - WELCOME (chilli, vine, rome and coke and a of corse - a great game)!
As fore the future… Well, I have only managed 4 games of 40K so fare in 2013, so I opt to game more. Also, after spending almost 4 months of building terrain, I need a break from terrain building (not very social). I still have to make one more gaming table, but I have to wait until June when I will be able to clear out my storage room. I have plans fore more DE as well as re-re-re-re-revisiting my Ultramarines in an attempt to make them darker (more gloomy) and add more detail (including new bases). But I need a break. Therefore I will revert to work on my WOC army, also focusing on Warhammer Fantasy gaming, and not join in on the monthly hobby challenge on TSB for quite some time. However, I would love to play more 40K, so do not hesitate to challenge me to a battle:) The battle bunker is ready, with two brand new gaming tables to play on (and I will of course also travel).
