Meteor Progress

I thickened up the lines in the cracks a bit and added the goblin green to the built up ooze around the edges. Tomorrow I add the yellow. I'll have to wait until after pay day to get the yellow static grass I want to use round the edges.

More terrain work

So now that this dried overnight, I added a thinner lighter green (goblin green) strip to the thicker dark green.  When that is dried, I will add an even thinner yellow line.  After that will come some blended flocking or static grass.

Here's a closer look along with a Librarian Epistolary in termie armour  found while going through my stuff.  Found my new HQ!

Basing my Ultramarines 2

So everything dried nice overnight...nice and dark so some dry brushing was in order. I used a dark grey and did a heavy drybrush followed by a light brush with a lighter shade.

All drybrushed

Next I add a drop of glue.  I use the junk brush to spread it out fairly thin.

Note the tray I use to catch excess flock

Next up I pile on the flock.  I used turf green because it's what I have on hand.  Some of the other minis in my army will get a static gras instead.  I might also use a chestnut wash instead of a black.  Once the flock is piled on, I use a flat stick to tamp it down.   Then I tap the excess off.

Assembly lining the process speeds it up quite a bit. 


Radio server not working

Tried to log in for my show but it's not allowing me. Bummer.

Radio show tomorrow

I will be on Shoutcast Radio tomorrow 11 AM to 2 PM PST. Link on the right side of my blog.

Terrain I am working on

Here's an abandoned partially demolished house I am working on.  The dead tree with be mounted in the yard and the burnt timbers (to the right) will be scattered about inside.

This is an objective marker I am working on.  When done it'll be oozing green goop.  Very Nurglish or perhaps Tyranidish.

Pretty plain right now

Dry brushed on another layer of paint around the meteor and added green goo to the cracks  
Added goo spilling from the cracks with a mix of paint, glue and a dark green wash

More on this later
