Terrain is everything - TT Combat Gothic Ruins MDF kit - ruin base TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I made this base for my TT Combat Gothic ruins way back when, but I never actually shared it. 

The ruins themselves come in two parts, a ground floor piece and this upper floor and I wanted an option so I could have them as two separate pieces.

This was built, primed and based for years before I finally painted the small bits of debris the other week

And for this I get a Great Big Big Build BLESSED VERDIGRIS Stamp of Approval, because it was built in 2021/22 Season.

I primed the bases with my truly awful Simoniz Red Oxide Primer. Loads of shaking and it still won't mix properly. I managed it in the end though, using a toilet roll tube to mask off the model itself and just spray the base. Then I went on with my standard Red Planet Base process. 

Here's my Great Big Big Build Base BLESSED VERDIGRIS Stamp of Approval, although I didn;t take any pictures at the time.

This sat for so long with these half dozen bits of debris just waiting to be finished.

And it's not like I hadn't done Blessed Verdigris countless times, I just hadn't remembered ti do these bits too.

Not that I'm ever likely to use it but you never know.

I mean it's the bread and butter of Red Planet BASE! 🔴

Nothing fancy, so no excuse why it took so long.

But it's done!

Anyway as I finished it this season - a Bloody Great Big Bloody Stamp of Bloody Approval!

Terrain is everything - Thermic Plasma Conduits - White pics

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Thermic Plasma Conduits. I'm not going to say much on these as I've already missed the boat on when they should have been published.

I need to do a 'Where's my head @' post but as committed to the blog as I would love to be I'm just struggling to fit it in.

So, just enjoy the pics without my prattling.

Terrain is everything - Thermic Plasma Conduits - TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my Thermic Plasma Conduits. I've had somewhat of a mix-up with me blogposts, I was supposed to have published this before the Treemen posts but nevermind.

As you can see the conduits are complete.

On the one hand these got done relatively quickly, but also there were times where it felt like I was just investing too much effort into them.

But they look great and I'm really pleased with the results.

I've recently seen people celebrating how little effort effort they put into their terrain to get it to a table ready standard.

That's great and everything, like the difference between tournament and narrative players. No harm in getting stuff done quickly but I think it's better celebrate when you have something worthy of showcase.

Nothing wrong with seeing decent results from minimum effort but better results from a bit more effort is probably higher value content.

Then again, I'm not sure I'll ever use these so who is the fool?

I've still to do the removable power coils for this.

And alongside the Haemotrope Reactor, which was the catalyst for painting them in the first place.

There's some subtle differences, I had all the ends of the conduits with a bit more yellow on, where some rust on top of the pipe join would have matched the reactor better.

But no one will notice except me.

This may well end up on my Armies on Parade board in 2024 - along way off but it gives a reason to have painted these afterall.

Really proud of this, and another GREAT Big RUSTY Stamp of Approval .
