3D Printed Chemical tanks (reprise)

I was asked to re-photograph the Chemical tanks with something to give an indication of scale, so as it was not raining today I decided to take the oppertunity to grab a new Primaris Marines as well as a 1995 vintage Necromunda figure to give them some sense of scale.

From the Shed: Sci Fi chemical/ goo tanks

More bits from thinigverse that I have printed off and painted up. Should be fun for 40k themed games. I’m sure I can make up a Nurgle themed narrative campaign out of them too. The red one will do if anyone runs a Corpse Grinder Cult gang in the next Necromunda campaign too.

From the Shed: More bits of scatter terrain… a cache and more tank traps.

Another quick post today. Been working on more bits of scatter terrain which will probably end up being mostly used for Zone Alfa. They are enjoable to paint and are ‘quick wins’ in terms of getting things finished. All of these bits were printed on my 3D printer.

First up we have an ammo cache… abandoned some where in the Zone it will make a nice objective marker.

I printed out some more of the tank traps too but this time I based them up and made them a little more over grown. It should make for a bit of  hard cover in the game.

From the shed: Creature Swarms.

One of the monster types that can spawn in a game of Zone Alfa is swarms of creatures. I didn’t have any in my collection and thought that they might be tricky to scratch build so I bought a few from the Reaper Bones collection.

4 bases of rats, and 2 each of spiders and beetles should be enough for my purposes. They were fun and quick to do too. The Reaper Bones models are made of a funny plastic but they took (brush on) paint well. I’ll be getting some more of them.

 

Cheers,

From the Shed: Nurgle Terminators.

I’ve been slowly working my way through my backlog of minis. Now that there is a new (9th) edition of 40k coming out it give me extra impetus to get a decent sized army painted. So to help that along I’ve finished off my Death Guard Terminators.

I had already painted one of the blightlord terminators for a Kill Team game so I do have a squad of five in total. They all came from the Dolorous Strain box set.

I’ve also got a little squad of the Death Shroud versions- topoled up for melee they should be fairly powerful in the game.

Unfortunately I used up the rest of my Death Guard Green so I need to wait until the shops open back up to get some more to finish off my characters and Daemon Prince. Then it will be pretty much army done.

 

Cheers,

From the Shed: Nurgle forces.

I’ve used some of my lockdown time whilst I’m not studying to get some bit painted for my nurgle force.

thumbnail_20200418_165208

First up are the Plague Marines. i tried to use a wide a selection of weapons as possible to give me options for kill team. Also I’ve enough for 3 fivve man squads in 40k.

First up we have the Champion and icon bearer.

 

thumbnail_20200418_165259

Next the two special weapon marines: blight launcher and plague sprayer (think chemical flamer).

thumbnail_20200418_165226

Then we have three close combat marines- pretty powerful when you get them into a melee fight.

thumbnail_20200418_165319

The Plagueburst crawler is a great kit, lots of detail fun to paint and build- adds a decent amount of firepower to my little force.

 

The plan is post lockdown to start with some 500 point games of 40k and see where it goes. At a stretch I could put out about 2000points I think but I want to work my way up there first.

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.

 

 

 

From the printer- sci fi terrain.

Firstly I hope everyone is dstaying safe and well in these lock down times.

I’ve been using my time to do a bit of 3 D printing. and getting them prepped for paint. This just consists of a quick clean up and a few coats of Mr. Surfacer paint.

First up are a selection of vats and tanks.

thumbnail_20200320_112250

Then with have some tank traps and an ammo cache that I’ll probably use for Zone Alfa.

thumbnail_20200320_112231

Definately for Zone Alfa is this sign from Pripyat seen here un prepped.

thumbnail_20200319_233220

Finally I printed off this Nuked city marker- no real use for it yet but I’m sure it will appear in a megagage at some point. Players always seem to love flinging nukes about in them….

From the Shed: Pox Walkers.

Whilst I had some painting mojo I got these finished that had been sat on my painting tray from well before xmas.

 

I wasn’t happy with my first attempt at some pox walkers so I experimented with these. a mix of GW contrast paints and normal techniques with plenty of ‘nurgle’s rot’ added for slime effects.

A bit paler than my normal style but I like them- Will do the rest I have to do like that.

From the shed: Aeronautica Imperialis.

I got the starter box set of GW’s Aeronautica Imperialis for xmas and wanted to get the planes painted before I played it.

The orks’ aircarft were easy to do – a spray of red paint and adding some details.

AI ork planes

 

For the Imperial planes I also used a spray can, grey primer first then green over the top after masking first. Then just an easy job to add the details in and finish off with a wash.

AI imperial planes

Rather pleased with how they turned out.

I’ll be sure to post when I’ve played the game.

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.
