It has been a while since my last post, I'm am just struggling to find the free time to sit down and paint or build at the moment.
Anyway, this week I got the opportunity to run some run some 'build along' model making workshops with the kids at the Youth Centre where I work, and we have been putting together little X-mas themed display pieces. It was actually pretty fun being able to share and introduce a new generation to the joys of my nerdy hobby. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out so I figured I would share.
The base is just a piece of log, and the moose is a very cheap plastic toy (I repainted mine), which I managed to find at a local discount store in big buckets of 50 animals for £2, they really cheap and nasty, but actually paint up nicely. Everything else is just standard modeling stuff, sculptamold, static grasses, clump foliage etc.
On another note I have not forgotten about or abandoned my Apocalyptic Suburbia Journal, it is still sat on my desk gathering dust. I plan to get back to it in the new year.
I'm building my kid a shuttle from a page in the Young Scientist Book of Spaceflight that used to be mine.
The kid likes planes, and this is the closest I can get to that now.
I've already traced things out and have some foamcore. Will cut things out and maybe glue and prime tomorrow
(Yes, the title is a throwback to a contest I ran years ago on here....no I'm not running another one, with today's shipping rates, ugh......)
This is where I'm going to work on 3D printed terrain pieces for Star Wars Legion, most of which currently are going to be spaceships. Because why use generic terrain when you can be shooting Rebel Scum hiding behind X-wings and the like?
Up first is this:
All the FDM bits are there, but most of the resin bits (guns, ramp, interior) are still in a bin waiting to have their supports removed and cured.
I figured I should get a thread started as maybe that will get me over that initial hurdle of actually starting. This has all been printed for a week or two and just sitting there....plus I'm gonna need that airbrush booth for other things sooner or later....
I will, of course, be attempting to make this look somewhat like the original episode 5 version, not some retconned prequel sillyness.
Now to go listen to some Prism.
Every year I put together a village using as many of my noncombative miniatures along with my Dwarven forge village a few pieces from my parents ceramic village and my old shops from the fire as she bears campaign
It may not be finished yet but its a good start to the holiday!
