Recently looked at these - then realised I have a tonne of stuff to work on. No pruchasing.

Looks like an interesting set of 'touch up' projects
Whilst it won't be 40k I use it for I have years of unbuilt scenery boxes. I have played Rogue Trader/Various Small Skirmish Systems - so that's all it's for.
Paint Scheme TBC - Grey Base/Desert Yellow/Red/Whites will go with Gaming Matt (Vinyl) and GW Gaming Boards (Card)
Building this will be airbrush practise & learning.
Going big before I go small.
There'll be various "Spares" to add to Card Stock/Foam for Even more Items
Each one I'm assessing for 'modularity' & 'storage' - bigger is not always better. More is better.

Progress is progress.... 3rd job in 12mths - back off shifts.
Just a few eyes and horns. Then bases and done.
Actually managed to ruin a few with tamiya ink and not waiting till dry.
Boo - work shift...
Ah wait no.. chuck it if claimed - I found it on ground outside door.. forgot to mention.
Necro-post tastic. Still many coats to go on character models. It was 8 coats on monsters to get the eye bleed brightness. Expecting similar with the characters.
Decided to darken the structures and bases a lot - seems to enchance the effect.
But most of the monsters, barring the odd line are due coats of gloss varnish then another new skills.
Tamiya Line Inking.
At least I know have a proper painting and modelling area at home and not just a small table in the lounge.
Divorce has its perks
Progress is progress..
