Well been another mega busy week. The Dragoons have been finished just need varnishing and basing. The Heavy Dragoons are now primed and ready to be started. I'll do pics when there based.
The Engineers Forward Expeditionary Squad have been released for Across the Dead Earth the minis are fantastic! They've been prepped and based and will get primed this week. We are having a painting competition beginning of April well actually two. Firstly single figure from either of the new gangs (Sisters of Acquistion or Engineers F.E.S) or a complete gang from Across the Entire range released so far. (I'll be entering one of the Engineers and the whole Engineer gang as I've already painted all the others!) There currently up for pre order (10% off RRP but not including postage) But will go live on the store any day now as they've have gone to all the backers already.
The main thing being worked on this weekend is some more scenery for another Across the Dead Earth facebook group. Its theme this time is basecamp and must be CD size or bigger. I've only gone for a slightly bigger than CD size one mainly just due to how busy I am with the Britanans Relics project. Mostly started yesterday morning and it kind of evolved as the day went on as I added bits between other normal life things. Its going to be a 'State' outpost The truck tower needs to the windows boarded up a bit. I may add some sandbags or defensive type structure to the top of the truck cab and the sort of lean to.
I have a number of these dowels (from a ice lolly I think) Though height wise not perhaps to scale it makes a good telegraph pole. I have several more of these. I might mount them up on some rubble piles and have them scattered about the table. (If I get around to it!) The Climbing rungs are simply staples cut in half bent into shape then superglued into holes drilled in the dowel. I need to make some kind of junction box at the top but I think It will have to be made from putty and also need to find some sort of cable to dangle loosely of course :)
Floor added to the ripped out interior of the truck. Rubble shored up around it.
The progress so far. I'm thinking of adding sort of some of lighting rig to the top of the truck down to a generator (But this will be down to time and sourcing the generator bits).
Added some Rolled up tarp so in bad weather in theory they can get some shelter etc.
