Customized YT-1300 Project Recap

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a friend of mine asked if I would be up for replicating what JediRob had done here.

The project began with cutting out bits from the Millennium Falcon. Then, the holes left by the cockpit hallway and satellite were plugged up. Once construction of the ...

[Resurrection]: War Walker, Part 2

Paint!

First, everything got primed black (except the canopy, that got primed white).

Then, I diligently and slowly put down about 3-4 layers of thinned Murderous Magenta (P3) on the spots I wanted the main color.

 

Next, I mixed some Carnal Pink (P3) into the Murderous Magenta, and put this down in the brightest spots.

[Resurrection]: Eldar War Walker

A while back, during a video update (YouTube, about 4:00), I mentioned that I’d found a pair of Eldar WarWalkers on the cheap.  They were in bad shape and needed some love.  DakkaDakka’s monthly hobby challenge for April is a “Veteran” model, something that looks like it’s gone through hell and back.

So, I’m ...

Space Elves and Spaceships!

This model’s been a blast to work on. I haven’t gotten a chance to work on a GW model in a while, and it’s refreshing to work on a model that has a completely different style and level of detail, not to mention a different material.

I wanted to give the pink a little more interest, ...

Finished Commissions!

Here are the three commission minis I managed to finish up this weekend. Click the pictures for bigger versions.

First up, the two D&D Characters, Lorelei and Sarona. The bases were made from GreenStuff, and sculpted with a standard spade type tool. I then used a small ball of aluminum foil to texture them. After adding ...

Studio Update: Trolls, Bards and Rogues, oh my!

I’ll be completely honest, I was pretty well spent after TempleCon.

Painting every spare minute for almost a month and a half will do that, though.  Additionally, it feels like there’s been some family or friend or work related thing every weekend in 2015, so my usual spots of big hobby time (weekends) have been cut ...

A primer on airbrushes

I’ve been asked a lot recently (in the past 3 months) about my thoughts on airbrushes, and what someone getting started should look for.  Rather than re-type my thoughts each time I get asked, I figured I’d make a blog post of it!

Before I get started, check out the Plarzoid.com Store.  It has an Airbrush ...

TempleCon 2015 Recap!

Wednesday

Man, what a trip.  This was the first time I’d taken the train, and it was a blast.  I traveled with the crew from Advanced Maneuvers, and got to learn all about non-profits from some lovely business folks on the way from Philly to NYC.  I glued grass to bases during the train ...

Lost Hemisphere Charity Model: Steamin’ Sally

Lost Hemisphere fans likely already know about Faultie’s project for this year’s charity, but in case you don’t, check this out:

Faultie’s always been a fan of the Rhulic nation, and this year, he wanted to do a WWII bomber inspired Earthbreaker! So, he commissioned some “nose art” for the project, and off he went! ...
