So, a little over a year ago I got my paws on a decent amount of MDF terrain, specifically with the goal of using it to build up a nice Infinity board. After narrowing it down, I wound up ordering some things from Warsenal as well as Global Evil Corp. Warsenal was because I loved the look of their Cosmica Line, and Global Evil Corp because I absolutely love kerf cuts and the fact they utilized such to have ROUNDED CORNERS on buildings. Oh yeah, and the sliding windows and doors gimmick was a pretty big draw too.
Last month my goal was to get it all primed, because I was tired of the raw MDF, plus I wanted to use it as inspiration to keep moving on my Infinity miniatures... This month I'm going to see what can be
^Let's just say there's a semi-reasonable amount of terrain involved....
^An okay amount for a diverse, two level 15 point (Code One) or 150 point (N4) field, although I could use a few more options...
But definitely not much in the way of full on variety for a full on 30 point (Code One) or 300 point (N4) 4x4' table.
^Before I forget, this is what attaches on to that cube frame. Looks so much nicer built up, even if I uh, haven't built the last panel yet due to lack of space on the desk.
Anyways, they've been raw MDF for far too long in my opinion, so let's get things staged over by the airbrush....
^Mr Hobby Mr.Almighty clips are rather handy....
^And primed. Yup, classic black primer with a white "zenithal" (for lack of better words) across things.
^After a few hours, we now have this. Okay, stage is set, but it feels like something is missing....
^Aha, looking a lot better. Initially I was going to try and go crazy on the colours for the exterior, but hubby and I just like the basic light kinda blue colour we've got going, so onwards to accents...
(Colours used: Mission Models Blue, with a small amount of black added in, as well as a reasonable amount of white - goal was for a bit of a greyish blue, and while I didn't quite get it how I wanted, eh, close enough and we like it)
^Decided to show the roof progress a little more in depth here, partially because I remember @Kangaroorex inquiring about the opacity of those Wicked Colours Opaque colours. The Dioxazine Purple I think was five drops of colour with two drops of Vallejo Thinner Medium, and on the right I had a moderately wet hybrid brush that was dipped into paint, and then traced along. Not sure what happened on the right side, but somehow I managed to go almost all the way around without running out of paint, but I also wasn't able to repeat it, although it was only a few inches before it started becoming see through. I'll still try to remember to do an actual test over white paper with print at some point.
^Now, as for those roofs... Sure, I could mask things, or even create a airbrush template, and I might still, but at the same time... The basic blocks have been laid down, with Wicked Opaque Pthalo Blue on the inner triangle like bits, Wicked Opaque Pyrrole Orange on the inner thin line, and Wicked Opaque Dioxazine Purple on the outer line.
What's the current plan? Well, naturally I'm going to get the basic colours laid down on the rest of the items, but I'm going to test out Pthalo Blue on a roof section to see what thoughts are. Originally, the two lines that go around each building were going to be orange, but after a quick though they're going to be purple. Warsenal stuff will see more oranges and reds, as well as purples to them, at least that's the current main plan ^_^;;;
I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II.
With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
Talking about railroad tracks:
We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.
Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
OMG, please not again....
any and all comments gratefully ignored....
I got this Frost Giant King in the last BoGW Europe. Glitterwolf put it in there I believe ( @Glitterwolf).
I aimed for a fastvpaintjob, then noticed more and more details during the paint.
Tried my best at a frostbite-ish effect on the sword. In the end I loved him so much he deserved a proper base.
I went with an icy base, without the often seen crackle effect. There was no tutorial for what I was aiming for, so I winged it.
The rock is a piece of driftwood with wall filler.
I'm quite happy on the outcome. What do you all think?
