Firstly, I need to apologize for the lack of update from last week! Life well and truly got in the way, that and I was indulging in other hobbies; namely Airsoft. I have also misplaced my camera. I am thinking it has either been tidied away or stolen by my Sister, but alas, I shall get it back one way or another for next week!
Despite actually doing quite a lot since my last update, I don’t have much to show for this one (mostly because of the lack of camera). This week its been more cosmetics that I have been working on. I haven’t completed any more models, so my current count is still 10/41 completed, but I have done a few more layers of black wash to kick start some of the outstanding Gaunts, as well as my remaining Hive Guard.
I have also been a bit of a naughty boy this week. All Tyranid owners will know that Hormagaunts are a real pain in the behind to keep upright, as their center of balance is usually well off their base. As a result, they spend more time on their faces than upright! My solution, and in turn, why I have been a bit bad, involves chopping UK penny pieces in half with an angle grinder. Cost effective AND technically treason!
As you can see, the half pennies are a perfect fit and I can tell you keep them weighted down really well!
So, still 10/41, but hopefully closer to a few more next week!
