What's On My Table: 12/18/2018
Over the weekend, I had a little time to work on the hobby. While I didn't finish any one project, I did make progress on a few.
Right now I have two lone boys that didn't have any paint on them. I couldn't let them be the only boys without any love so I started to paint them. They will also become my first boys on the 32mm base. I am not looking forward to this project but it has to be done for Adepticon, so I might as well start.
Big Shoota Boys
Along side my two ork boys I am painting up my seven big shoota boys. I never used these guys in my army so the never got painted. With my attempt to get all of my orks painted, I figured these seven guys are a good starting point.
While I am still waiting for bits (they will probably be here next year) I thought I would do a little work on the buggy itself. I started to paint the exposed metal bits. I plan on painting the gun the bright brass I used on the morkanaut guns but the rest will be the dark brass. I love the model and am looking forward to getting the second one on the table.
Awhile ago, I purchased some magnetic flight stands for my Necron Destroyers who kept breaking off their flight stands. The stand uses a ball bearing and a countersunk magnet to increase the surface the magnet contacts the ball. I tried this on my catacomb command barge. While it does hold, the barge seems a bit to much and it keeps tilting on me. I think a straight magnet would be better. The destroyers are light though, I think they will be perfect for this. The only proble I had was they shortest stand was 4 inches. That is about three inches to tall. I was able to cut it down and I am happy with how it is turning out. Now all I need is to connect the magnet and I will be in business.
That is all I am working on this week. The year'd end is coming up on us quickly. Pretty soon I will be looking at a new year with fresh eyes.
Questions? Comments? Will be backs????
