Finished Apocalypse Models!

OK, back in the saddle again…

Finished up the Apoc models I was working on, wrapping up the paintjob on the second Pulsa Rokkit. Nice to have them finished.

Too big to fit all of them on my workbench at the same time so took over the kitchen table for a group shot. Fun to use a warboss as a Barry for the shot, to give you a sense of scale.

Over the Thanksgiving holidays I’ll be bringing the good work camera home and settin up another {Year’s End) shot of the entire (painted) Waaagh! and I’ll post’em of course.

Now I need to see if I feel like painting (finishing up some models) or building new things (more Stormboys of Killer Kans).

Later!

Badab Black applied with a brush. Nothing tricky, it does tie everything together nicely now.

Skullahmma Work

Small update, been busy with half my family sick and in/out of the hospital. Everything is alright now and on the recovery track for all involved.

Did the drybrushing highlighting and started the basing for the metals – edges of cut panels, guns/exhausts, etc. I also did the checks for one tank. Turned out alright I think. I’ll be doing something different for the other tank. These pics are some of the first ones I could get color corrected to show the true red (your screens may vary…).

Tonight I hope to get the second tanks black basing done and stenciling (for a lack of a better word) as well as the details, then maybe the chipping finished over the weekend. I’d like to wrap this up by Sunday to give me enough time to complete both Pulsa Rokkits in time for the instore Apoc Demo coming up. Yes, I’ve decided to do the Pulsas next. They’ll add more visual impact to the game and the crazy rules should be more fun than the ability to shoot down flyers, we’ll have some other units for that.

I’m priming this one right now and taking a long time since the humidity outside is so high at the moment. Spray, bring it in, let is dry, go back out and spray again, come back in and let it dry. Evaluate…on and on. I’m actually hoping to get at least the base coat of Mechrite red sprayed down tonight – we’ll see how it goes with the primer curing well enough to mask.

They’re really bright at this point so they’ll look a little cartoony – this is even more pronounced in the photos than in real life. Next will be the metals and details, then a couple of overall washes and then paint chipping and done.

Gotta figure out which ones I’ll be doing after that. Matching Pulsa Rokkits? A kustom battlefortress? Maybe the pair of flakka dakka wagons? All before Oct.!
