Promethium Rig Builder Diary Day 2

Greetings! Or should I say put on this hard hat?

While it says "Day 2" it should probably say entry #2, as this has been a multi-day project, but here's where we came from to where we are now. I'll add some tips/tricks about what I learned from this at the end. When last we left the project, we had four very cool pillars (that I could also use to create a vaguely water-world concept that seems to be percolating in my mind).

Showcase: Primaris Repulsor

 While not working on my #Squaduary pledge I have been slowly working on my “Tales of X Gamers” Pledge. While my squad of hellblasters is still in progress, I have completed the work on the Primaris Repulsor.

#Squaduary week 3

This week, I continued to work on my genestealers for #Squaduary 2018.  They are getting closer to being finished with only highlighting, claws, and bases left for me to finish.  Let’s take a look.

Squadmarks Review

At the Las Vegas Open I meet the creator of the Squadmark system.  I was impressed with the idea on how helpful they could be.  I went on his site and pre-ordered a bunch then asked if I could do a review.  He agreed.

Promethium Rig Builder Diary - Day 1

Hi all!

As usual, hobby ADD has struck, and while I was waiting for things on the martian board to move along (read, I haven't bought any sand, so I can't sand the board, also I need glue - where is my shopping list?), so I decided to get to work on this monster.

A few days a huge package came in the mail!

Yes - I was excited. Soon a delicious smell of burning mdf filled the room.

What is it, you ask? A Promethium Rig from a Kickstarter run by Wargame Model Mods, a British Company.

The focus of the kickstarter was to allow the founder to source sufficiently strong tubes to support a variety of projects. As with most MDF terrain, it is simple to build cube or rectangular shapes, but more organic shapes are difficult to form.

#Squaduary week 2: basic colors

#Squaduary week two progress is coming along nicely.  The main color, Caldor Sky is complete I am pondering how to paint the carapace on these stealers.

WIP: Primaris Repulsor

If you remember this months "Tale of X Gamers" pledge was a squad of Hellbasters with their Repulsor tank for transport. I have started work on my Hellblasters but I have progressed further on the Repulsor.

#Squaduary Week 1: Assembly

This is the first week of my first #Squaduary event! I am super excited to be participating.  I am glad to be taking a break from the marines to go back to my roots with some genestealers.

LVO Haul

Last post I talked about two out of my three goals for the Las Vegas Open (LVO). Today I want to talk about the vendors and what I ended up taking home with me.
