Project Thunderhawk 29th December 2012

by Cain Tiberius on Sat Dec 29, 2012 4:38 pm
Hi folks. I know I said I wouldn't be adding any more till the new year, yet here I am once again..

I've started a scratch built Thunderhawk. Something I've been planning for some time.. well its finally begun. Please bare in mind this is just the beginning. Rough edges will be fixed in due process, aswell as building up layers of detail.

Ok so this will be predominantly made of card, with polystyrene core. There will be a few plastic pieces like the engines and weapons. I am getting measurements from Eli Patoroch's PDF plans and various other pictures. The main difference though is I'm not doing any interior detail. Instead making it a solid polystyrene and...

Painting the Tiger I - 1/87 scale card model

by Spack on Thu Mar 21, 2013 7:59 pm
For the AoS painting competition I have taken a model I had almost finished building for my son's train set, and attempted to make it look a little more model-like. The original JPG template can be downloaded here: http://sega.jp/pc/soft/advd2001/img/pm3_01_.jpg (instructions here: http://sega.jp/pc/soft/advd2001/sp_pmt1.html ). This is a 1/144 scale model, but I needed 1/87 to match the scale of the Panzerzug train being built so scaled it up in Photoshop and rearranged the components to fit on an A4 sheet of card.

Here's the model built, with the original inkjet colouring. I've left the tracks off to make them easier to paint.

King Of War - Base Model Cost and modifier to Unit Size cost

by DaBoss on Fri Jun 24, 2011 5:25 pm
With a lot of time on my hands in the evening (away on Customer Site and staying in hotels), I spent some time thinking over the costing of models and the unit size cost again.

So starting with a Skeleton Troop (10) at 45pts - that equates to a 'Single Model Cost' (SMC) of 4.5pts
likewise an Elven Spearmen Troop (10) at 60pts means a SMC of 6pts

If we take all the units from both the Undead and Elven factions, we get:
Undead
Skeleton 4.5pts
Revenant 6pts
Zombie 3pts
Wraith 25pts
Ghoul 4.5pts
Revenant Cavalry 16pts

Elven
Spearman 6pts
Sea Guard 10pts
Bowmen 9pts
Scout 8pts
Palace Guard 7pts
Stormwind Cavalry 18pts

So far so good...

Now looking at the Unit costs using these single model costs

So taking a Skeleton Troop (10) at a cost of 45pts
Single Model Cost of a Skeleton is 4.5pts
To get...

Malifaux - Avatars

by DaBoss on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:37 am
I haven't got Twisting Fates book yet (was not going to bother), but on reading about the Avatars for each of the different Factions and seeing what the Pandora & Rasputina look like I had a bit of a compulsive purchase (nearly as bad as I have with Games Workshop)....

So I got both and have put them together - Pandora was a bit of effort as it came in 2 metal pieces and 5 resin which did not fit perfectly without a lot of shaping and cutting - but am now really happy with it.

I think Rasputina Avatar of Famine will be quite an easy one to paint, very much like what I did for the Ice Golem then flesh up Rasputina body.

Pandora will be a bit more effort but the contrast between the Tentacles and the Serpent trails will be interesting.
Love the Teenage Candy - will have to think how her clothes will look compared to her...
