And now for a nearly-new post!
Anyone who’s followed the Hammertime 40K wargaming blog for a while will have noticed that the posts I’ve been doing have been reposts from Hammertime 40K. It’s been cool seeing all my ‘old’ stuff come up again, but now it’s time for some newer stuff!
My Cryx starter set is coming along!
I’m going to magnetize the arms on the Slayer helljack, he’s a big fella and I want to be able to transport/store him easily. I was going to pin and glue the arms in place but the pose I decided on has one of his arms come way out so I’m going to take the pins out and glue in some medium-size magnets.
I practiced a bit of wet blending with these guys, it’s a bit hard to see because of the dark color palette, but if you look on the large areas of the ‘jacks you can see the edges get darker. I *might* see if a wash will accentuate the shading but I don’t think you’re really meant to!
So I just need to drill holes for the magnets, glue them in and put some paint over the bases, and I should be nearly finished. I think the last thing to do will be some bright green OSL like I did for the Machine Wraith.
This is my first actual completed Cryx model – the starter set is nearly complete but I have to magnetize the heavy Bonejack and finish basing everything else.
