Priming today

Just worked a 66 hour week, so today was a bit of recovery.

That said, I got about 140 models primed. A variety of Imperial Guard, Chaos Marines and Rogue Trader Orks.

Here are some valhallans, with a squat tech priest and an IG psyker as proof.

One of the first appearances of the Howling Griffons. Back when they featured real peoples armies. Inspirational for the everyman, made painting decent models seem more attainable than the perfection that was the studio stuff.

2nd Edition Terrain in Progress

So a while back I started picking up the old terrain sets. Cause they're awesome.

A while after that talking with a friend, we discussed the idea of replacing the cardboard with styrene, and on top of that, cutting out each layer of detail to make them more 3D. So, after some thought, and me finding a lasercutter on etsy, I took the base kit from...

To the following. Still left to do are the addition of a load of rivets, which I hope to finish up in the coming days and update once the build is complete.
