Refinery Spruins pt2

Spruins I’ve got some paint on these now, just the main materials blocked out, which was pretty easy since its all going to be metal. I started with three shades of primer; grey black and white to get some variation and break up shapes while tying it all together with a bit of pre-shading. Then I sponged on a bunch of #stuartsemple silver paint, to get some reflective shine in areas, using a sponge to get some irregular patterning to it. After that I went back over it all with the #airbrush with some Vallejo black metal, to tone down the shone and hint at some burnt/oily surfaces. Next up, dirt and earth to ground it… #terrain #kitbash #weathering #necromunda #refinery

Refinery Spruins pt1

I’ve been combining bottles, sprue, laser cut scraps, 3d print supports, random curft, a bunch of resin cast greeblies and a few broken up plaster ones, and a GW set to make this refinery set. I cut a sheet of hardboard to the size of a ikea billy shelf, for the overall footprint, to ensure it will be easy to display. Then I cut that board up for each of the modular parts so that it would be configurable on the table in a variety of ways. Next steps; primer, grout, sand, and paint… #terrain #refinery #40k #necromunda

My white Gigalion. I've used some of this time home to get the first of my #kingdomdeath models painted. I swear the longest part was just deciding on a treatment for them. In the end I settled on preshading with hrey/black/white primer for a bit of #osl and zenithal highlights. And came back over it using only #alcoholink I wasn't sure it would even work but I knew I wanted something subtle, rich, and not plastic feeling, and as much as I worried about ruining them every time I added a new color I think its working out well. #miniatures #vignettesofdeath

We lost a lot of foliage which is a bit sad, but it was on the line and needed to go for the fence, and we can replant some new things soon enough, now just to decide what… #yard #garden

A before and after comparison of our fence, replacing the old falling chain link with some nice new cedar. #house #homeimprovement #yard

I just received this lovely #oldhammer illustration from @tonyhoughart .The Original Oldhammer Artwork group on Facebook shared it and I knew I had to have it. It was done in 1988 and published in the first #roguetrader supplement, which was one of my first gaming books when I first started in the hobby. I'm super excited to have framed it and hung it up in my den now! #art #40k
