Stormwolf process

Nate, Master of the Darkenvault back here again. Having finished my stormwolf, you can now join me on a trip through its construction.

Here I have all of the pieces laid out in the state at which I will begin painting them in. 


I found I was unsure of how the aircraft was to sit a top the flight stand. Just inserting them together left it lop sided, and drooping. So I rigged up this sprue stop, or whatever you would call this. I then pinned the stand so it would insert with the model with some more support.


Here we see the iron priest finished in his cockpit all ready to take off, he had to wait a while though still.


Now with the control panel finished I was ready to insert the pilot into the top panel of the stormwolf.


With this part done I will now paint the inside of the cargo hold. Once that's finished I will be able to seal up the body of model and begin painting the rest of the model.


Imperial vehicles make your best friend the humble rubber band. I covered the canopy with tape, and have not yet glued it in place. This will be one of the last steps. It is blue tacked in place right now.
 

Here is a shot of the interior, I forgot to get one earlier.


Jump some time ahead. I have all the base colors, and washes done. Now on to highlights, and weathering. You can see what I've done with the base using a two part epoxy I got to try out from a wonderful Smooth On employee who was running their booth last year at adepticon. I cut out two layers of foam core, then penciled on an outline. After seeing how well the stand fit in, and getting it snug I applied the epoxy. I'm leaving the stand free for transport. But now to jazz it up alittle.


So the base is large, and I didn't want to leave it with just rocks and grass. So my idea was have wolves running beneath it. To give it action, and motion. Defiantly need to get a proper photo set up, having a hard time getting a big guy like this lite.


So here is the finished model. Jumping again into the future quickly. I'll add some more insignia later in a few spots, but otherwise I'll call it good. Took some photos at Fantasy Flight Games to try and get better lighting. 



Finally a look at the base.

Really this is a continuation of last Article Fridays post.  The topic of communication is so important it needs its own post.

Let's get back to the losing part of this How to Lose at 40k sand box of ours.

Wanted to try the new psyhic rules.  Forgot them a couple of turns.  This librarian, Ezekiel, had a ton of special gear on him.

Some months ago Games Workshop re-released a classic game of theirs.  Space Hulk.  I've always wanted to play it and finally had an opportunity.

These guys took a little longer than expected to finish.  Think they turned out pretty good.

Commission Tips part 1: Payment

Let's get this Article Friday going again.  This would've landed last Friday but didn't have a pic.

One of the roughest things to hammer when creating my commission business was payment.  Looking at how other commission sites handled payment gave me an idea of what to do.

14.8.16 1000 Necrons vs Adepta Sororitas a.k.a. The Return of BatReps

What a battle report?  It has been a long time since one of these has graced our sandbox. This is an extremely olde battle report.  If I remember correctly our gaming group didn't meet one Friday night.  Suijin and I decided to do some 40k.  Since this was our first 7th ed game we played a lower point game to give us time to go through the rules and finish.

This lady.  What is up with this lady?

Bane Thralls part 2

These guys are going fast.  Looks like my new plan for commissions is working splendidly.

Feel so sorry for this poor guy.  He's been the test model for this unit.  He's been through quite a bit I tell you what.

Bane Thralls part 1

New month and a new commission.  Asked Mike when he'd like these by.  He said by Christmas so they'd be a present to himself.  Love the idea.  Who knows more what you want for Christmas than you?
