Armies on Parade 2

Welcome back to my Armies on Parade WIP.

As you know i really didnt plan on doing anything for this, but changed  my mind spur of the moment and decided to bash it out.
Below is my progress, and as  you will see im more just finding my way around the board so not a lot is secured to the board yet apart from the main concourse

 I picked up the Basilica Administratum kit from Tabletop Tyrant in Leicester an will utilize this as a Shrine/Temple building in the corner with a long concourse leading up to it

I needed some steps leading up to the main door (as you do)

I will be building out the sides of the building by about 2 inches, And where you see the pipe sticking out (i may lower it) i will have an industrial type building (part of one) just so i can have a little water feature. 

Sorry about the pick i was to lazy to edit it. But as you can see it will be at the top of the main building not sure if i have finished the detail on this might spray it and then go back if i think it needs more. (gotta love instant mold, i made ten of these greenstuff icons)

What we have here is the main building that just needs extending slightly either side and also ive started building up the rockface on the left using cork and filler (i would have just used filler but too heavy overall) still not sure of the skulls yet but thats mainly because my eye is being drawn too, it may not be a problem when sprayed and painted, this will be part of a ruined building built on top of the carved rockface.
Ive built up the concourse and most likly will line the edges with lamps/street lights and flags/icons may also have a small parade ground to the left or maybe a death camp type stucture for those damn imperials.

So ive still got a fair bit to do but i can finally see some progress in the near future, too be honest i cant wait to get this finished and painted (oh the water is a fair while off need to start experimenting with 2 part resin too try and get a nice clear finish for the water which will be about 3 inches deep in the deepest part (any suggestions what i could use would be great) )  so i can crack on with the actual models.

See you soon

Armies on Parade

Two weeks ago i wasnt sure if i could be bothered with doing this Armies on Parade lark, then the other day i was out and about, had some cash in my pocket and had a little splurge in B&Q.
I was only in for twenty minutes, most of which was waiting around for someone too cut me a board.

I came out with this.

This cost me about £7.00 in total.

Today  i sketched a couple of basic ideas out and then started building, needless to say i quickly ignored what ideas i had and just went for gold.
I didnt even know what theme or even army i was going to use.

 As you can see from the pictures its coming along nicely, ive left it to dry for the night and ill be cracking on tomorrow still need to get some gear for it but i think its just going to develop without a plan.

I still need to decide what im using its most likly going to be Chaos thoough not sure if i want to go Space Marines or Traitor Guard/Renegades maybe Sons of Sek.

Right so about two and half years ago maybe a touch longer i got back into Warhammer and 40K thanks to my good friend Morelion who frequents Warseer and a couple of other places.

I  was indescisive so anded up buying Assault on Black Reach, manged to get a couple of nice armies together off the back of that, unfortunately i sold my 3500 points of orks though i kept a couple of things back which i might preveiw here in the future.

This left me with my Lamenters, you probably all know of them, cursed founding went off the rails then came back too the fold.

Ive probably got about 3000 points of them which i had painted to a degree though after at least 13 years of no painting you can imagine the state of them so i got the dettol out and stripped the little yellow dudes (never stripping again), though i decided that i didnt want to strip the vehicles not that i actually finished painting them.

So ive decided that it is time to crack on especially since the new GW yellows are bloody greatso over the next couple of days im going to showcase my progress on a test mini (need to get that shit right) and hopefully the next couple of months will see me roll out some fresh Lamenters goodness.

New week new ideas
