So it's been a while since the last post.  I've recently been away on course without the ability to do any modeling.  It was a long course, lasting from March to the end of June.

I have also been posted.  I will be headed back to the mothership, i.e. The Regiment. Recently went through the process of buying a new house aswell.  

Between finishing course, planning the move, clearing out and traveling, it has been a temultuous couple of weeks.  Suffice to say this hasn't left much time to think about modeling.

That being said, I have spent a considerable amount of time planning a gaming table with built in storage.  I'll be sure to post the schematics when I get a chance.  I hope to be back at it by the 20th of July, but heck, who knows.

Happy hobbying,

Turret troubles

Hey Hobbyists,

So I've been working on the 30k Deimos style turret.  Finally completed the mock up and even sealed it against permeation. 

 I had decided early on the I wanted to use a mold to minimize the work on myself.  

Unfortunately it didn't turn out as all I had was a two part epoxy putty mold maker, which unfortunately didn't keep the finer details.  I'll try again in the not so distant future and post my results.

I've also been working on this little guy for my Inq28 warband.

Happy hobbying.

30k predator turret

Hey hobbyists,

Continues to work on the OOP Rhinos.  I have always had a little think for the old predator turrets.  I've had a bit of inspiration from the Blood & Skulls industries turret.

Here is the rounded turret base.

The basic measurements were eyeballed, but seem to be about right.

Here it is, trying it out on the hull.

I'll have more for you later.

Updating OOP Rhinos

Hey Hobbyists,

A while ago a buddy of mine was getting out of the hobby.  He handed over a bunch of old Rhinos.  Since I've been working on a 30k era Ultramarines army I figured these would be a great addition.

I scraped off the old track and replaced it with Chimera tracks.  They fit perfectly and look great.

I'm trying out the fence incense burners from the imperial sector box as a stand in for the old exhaust pipes.

And I'm current working on scratch building a Deimos pattern rounded predator turret.

happy hobbying.

Another random project

So a little project I've wanted to do for a while is a leather pistol holster, but instead of guns, it's for a flask.  Looked at some finished products on the Internet, and sort of randomly delved into making this.

 I think it turned out fairly well.

Until next time.  Happy hobbying.

New photos

Hey hobbyists,

Here are a couple of picture for you.

I've been pretty inspired by the guys over at iron sleet.  Here are a couple of work in progress models.

More flames of war

Here are a couple of shots of the ongoing flames of war 4th Canadian armoured brigade.

Here you can see the extent of the forces.  4 x tank troops each with 2 firefly tanks, supported by a Sqn HQ and a troop of 3 x Stuart light tanks.

I decided that I would represent the Sheldt campaign and give them 3 x duwks as their echelon vehicles.  No idea if it is accurate and isn't even playable, but I'm currently doing the research.  

Still requires a dirty wash on the canvas and painting up the crew.  Picked up these solid pewter models at BC Shaver in Victoria, BC.  Apparently they had been on the shelves for years.  Got em for a song, and happy about it.

Happy hobbying.
