Sleep PatternsFor the past week I've been matching my fiancee's sleep pattern - which basically means that I've been waking up at about 7.30pm and going to sleep at around 9.00am. Strange isn't it.
Anyway, thats not the main reason for this post. One of the reasons is to inform everyone that there will be some more pictures appearing on here of a few tanks that I've managed to finish (apart from varnishing (at time of posting)). I've completed my Basilisk B23, the Leman Russ Conqueror/MBT command tank (as seen in "Let there be pictures! Part Three") for my Emperor's Fist company, a Demolisher and another Leman Russ MBT. Stay tuned for those new pics.
The other reason is a quick update on what I'm currently working on. Now that I have seen the pictures of the sprues for the new Command Squads I'm glad that I've decided that I will wait for them to be released. Check out the post on "Bell of Lost Souls" and prepare to be impressed if your a Guard player. And so I'm continuing my work on some infantry squads, so again please be patient for some shots of these guys.
The final thing I'm on at the moment is the sponson weapons for the remaining six Leman Russ' for my Emperor's Fist tank company. Basically I've removed all of the remaining sponsons from the sprues and put them together. And here is a picture of the guns after I'd done this.
The weapons were then cleaned up to get rid of any lines/gaps etc. Once all of this done I put a bit of blu tack on the back of the sponson mounting and stood the guns up on a bit of card. Then I gave them all a nice coat of Chaos Black spray. Once this had dried during the day (or overnight depending on if your awake the same time I am). Obviously there were some parts that needed touching up, so out came the crappy starter brush and these bits were painted with Chaos Black. Again this was left to dry and then progress was actually made. First I had to mix up my Catachan Green paint as it had separated (if anyone has any tips on how to do/prevent this please help). But I ended up making it a bit too thin, so had to apply three coats onto the sponsons. Anyway it looks good now and all I have to do is the more tricky sections. Another picture to show this.
I probably won't do anymore to them tonight but I'll be doing the metallic parts next - so barrel, under barrel and symbols. Thanks for reading everyone.
