Imperial Knight – WIP

So I’ve made a lot of progress on my Imperial Knight. What an amazing model! Still tons of work to do. So many details and you get lost on the model painting it. Everything is blue-tacked together at this point to make it easier to paint in pieces. Hopefully over the next few weeks I can get it finished.

Lizardmen Terradon Riders WIP

I got a box of Terradon/Ripperdacytl riders for Christmas this year and managed to put them together and start painting.  I still need to do some detail work and finish up the base, but I love how striking they are.  I will have to eventually pick up another box and do the Ripperdacytls just to paint something similar up.

Custom Zone Mortalis WIP

I’ve been eyeing the Zone Mortalis tiles since they first came out from Forgeworld.  It looks like the sort of game I would really enjoy, but not wanting to spend $600 dollars on a single board, I decided to see what I could build out myself.

I recently acquired a table top Hot Wire Foam Cutter from Amazon and it allows me to make nice straight cuts in foam. The project would still be possible without it, but will save me a ton of time making cuts. The guide needs a little reinforcing when making cuts or it will push out of the way a little. I also found the best glue to use is Liquid Nails rather than craft or wood glue. It dries in a reasonable amount of time and is rock solid.

House paint is used to cover up the pink foam, and the flooring is mostly made out of plastic mesh used for knitting little tapestries and makes an inexpensive industrial flooring.  After I get a 4×4 built out, I will start detailing the walls with pipes and do some additional painting to make them look better.
