From the trenches: 08/17/09 update

Hi all!

well, I have been very busy! There is a painting challenge over at Chamber Militant which I am taking part in. My pledge is to get my Sisters of Battle Immolator painted up in full glory by September 5th. I have made a start on her, which you will see in a moment. As I don’t have an airbrush (argh!) this particular vehicle is being done ‘old skool’ ie ‘by hand’. The bulk of the vehicle will be in the purple of my Order, with cream accents. I am currently also sketching up some freehand devices that will be adorning the armor plates. They are, after all, Battle Sisters. I am still undecided as to what color to paint the roof section, so if anyone has any ideas…. let me know!

Burn baby burn!
Burn baby burn!

I have since painted the back ramp and the exhaust housing in the purple color as well. Obviously there will be weathering and scripture aplenty too. More to come on this as I do more.
I recently finished my first squad of inducted Imperial Guard, my 32nd Inquisitorial regiment, here’s a sneak peek:
Yesterday saw me, Joe, Evan and Colin doing some kitbashing to build some more scenery for our cause. It’s hellish fun, as it’s total improv. You don’t know what you’re going to end up with! I went full tilt and made a huge ruined building, with a few nooks to hide troops, open enough to have firefights, but with enough to break up LOS from the outside. Here are a couple crappy pictures I took with my phone:
If you look at the rear shot here, you’ll see wome sandbag/barb wire barricades, so you even get a little cover outside of the building. I’ll be interested to see how this is utilized in future games.
All of you GW follwers out there have probably heard the news, and seen the pictures now for the new (and limited) copy of Space Hulk. Space Hulk was one of the games I loved when I first got into the hobby. Being a huge ‘Aliens’ fan, this was perfect, although the miniatures were something to be desired. Clunky, ugly, and looking like a turd with a pole stuck in the top, and that was just the Termies!
On the offchance you have’nt caught wind of this upcoming release (release date – September 5th), here is a link for you to drool over. Note the superb minis:

Space Hulk

Certainly a great item, but not too sure about the $99 tag price. Or, for that matter, the ‘limited availability’ thing. I got my pre-order in today….

Thats about it for now, thanks for reading, stay tuned for further transmissions!
