The dereliction of lazy summer days

Well its been a while since any updates on here and i can only blame the long sunshiney days of summer that we have been treated to the year here in the UK. Not much was done on the modelling front but i did grow some awesome taters on my allotment among some other lovely veg but now the weather has turned against me its time to get serious with my model making again.
The mono bike is getting close to compleation as is the rider so paint will be applied soon and then i'll start on the scout walker to accompany it. If time permits i will get the seond monobike done also but for now the one will have to suffice.
On the miniatures front all that's been done is a lot of planning and some base coating of my retro future marines project, i've also started choosing the different chapters they will be from which is a project all in itself :)
My continuing delving's into the Inq28 scene or movement if you like has continued over the summer but mostly in the planning department and reserching of images and dipping in to relevant forums and blogs. Speaking of which i had a shock today browsing the ammobunker forums Inq28 area, hitting the general thread for links to new inqspiration the first highlighted note was my little old blog and posted by none other than PDH omfg. So that has made my day better still i re found my inq rule book which had gone walk about and totally stalled my next henchman bashsculpt. I need to scan a couple of pages before lending it to Matt so he can gen up on the rules and we could maybe get a game in before hell freezes over lol.  I will be starting that soon as a fill in between monobike and scout walker building in the next few weeks so new pics will be hitting the blog very soon. This guy will be i think my most ambitious conversion to date, a lot of sculpting will be involved to make him work.
One more thing is that i'm hitting a mile stone this week in the form of my birthday and hoping to make the pilgrimage to the most holy temple of all things 40K that is Lenton and the warhammer world' weather and work and wife permitting. Its only about an hour away so no real excuse i've been very close to it on many occasions but circumstances have always ment that it was not possible. Been at this on and off since i was 13 that's 27 years next Thursday and i'm still rubbish but think i shall crack it in the next decade or soooo :)

Hope everyones been keeping well in the blogo-sphere.

a ratling , a squat and an augmented human walk into a bar.

just a quick post with some truly crap pics from the desk. you can see my collection so far of the re-imagined RT era space marines project. Only two to go plus maybe an officer to lead them that i may have think up myself or get some inspiration from the rogue trader book in keeping with the project.
Then its on to reimagining the 3 classic minis in the title for my inq 28 warband. Now this will be a proper challenge to find doner parts. Intact the human I've attempted before and led me onto the SM project. Finally if i can ever find my inq rule book ill be able to start on another inspired by the awesome art contained within but can i find the bloody book can i hell as like o_O

pictographic imager non functional

Pictographic Imager is non functional and all attempts at entreaty to the omnissia to reawaken it's machine spirit have failed. Will consult a tech adept and hopefully get it working again soon to bring you images of my latest creations. If sacred oils and mechanicum approved incense fail i'm open to suggestions for a replacement.
And whilst i'm here blabbering on it's a bit of a shock about the spec games getting the chop but on reflection it may be a good thing in the long run will have to see and i'm enjoying the rumors that are being extrapolated from this event ;)
I dont like the no pics posting so until somethings sorted on the camera front unless the post is real interesting (mine are not btw hence the pics lol) so may be all quite for a while gotta save up the penny's.

Falke coming along nicely

So it's been a little to long since my last post and for that i do apologize most sincerely but i haven't been idle, just not on anything 40k related but i hope you will like what I've been upto.

 Crome over a grey primer for the wear on the final finish
 Underneath of the Falke with some of the masking sol removed, it takes forever really for....ever.
 The lumpy areas are masking sol. Good fun pealing it off honest!!!!.
 Lots of spot colour to add and details on the gubbins between the two booms.
Masking of for the final areas on the main hull, when that's done the inspiration for the colour scheme will be much more obvious  I'll leave it at that for now, till next time which will be sooner than last time if that makes sense i'm not sure myself tbh.

some progress

Just a quick post and a couple of pics of my progress on the retro revamp project. My ideas for these guys a coalescing nicely as i work my way through them.
 I've done more since this pic another good session will see them done.
 The head is a standard half augmetic head i sanded some details off and resculpted on to get the essence of the original.
 Another new hair doo on this guy, not quite what i wonted but will have to go with the outcome as getting picky won't get this project finished any time soon.
 Here are the next for i'm planning to do probably far left and far right first then the middle two as my final members.

More and better pics in the next post and i'd just like to say a big thanks to Dia for sending a care package of bits for me to use, they were most greatfully recived and already used on these two.

quick update and info dump

Hiya internet chums

Sorry for the total lack of content since last year been a bit of a shite start to the new year but everythung seems to be getting back to normal now.
The bits arrived from Dia safe and sound for the continuation of the Retro Futuristic Spaze Mahrine (TM) project thanks Dia it's much appreciated, I'll be starting back on them after the Crewe model show is out of the way.

 Here's the next victim for the RFSMP MUHAHAHAHAHA
 This is whats been occupying my time, painting this clapped out old Y wing for the Crewe model show hanger build. 

 Also this kitbash is hopefully going to attend Crewe just some tarting up and paint to go on.

This may be my next project as i need to get my scratch building skills up a level before attempting a build i've been planning for 8 years now and not had the bottle to start. Lets just say it needs to be about 6' long to   do it justice.

Hope everyone had a nice start to the new year, (well better than mine lol) and all that other stuff. Taking as a sign the Chinese new year being of the snake i plan on getting a start on my ghost Vipers Spaze Mahrine (TM) chapter when my calender frees up also just remembered that :)
