Nappen's Weekly Paint 2015

I ended the last year by finishing My son's Necron Army. I then started to build more on my venice board, but I ran out of cast tiles and it is too cold in the garage to do plaster right now, so decided to work on the imperial strong point is primed green a year ago.

Made a lot of progress yesterday, watching the college football playoffs. I am almost done on the two bastions. Today, I hope to work on the defense line. But first, about to head out to Nashville to put the Mother-in-law and my oldest on a plane...one home and one back to school.

Finished painting the strong point. Will try and do some pics tomorrow.

---UPDATE---

Arrgggh! I realized that I forgot to drill the barrels on the stormbolter emplacements. Not a huge deal and I drilled it out, but would have been MUCH easier before assembly.

Spent the last two days painting up the strong point. No individual piece is that much work, but man, there is a lot. And a bunch of left over bits that I painted and then decided not to use. Ah well, anyway, Strongpoint complete.

I still have another in the box. Today I am casting tiles for my venice board and going to make the bases for my Daemons before I prime them.

got the bases done. Hard to see and the magic sculpt will need to cure overnight, but going to have nurgle units with green gooey rivers of sludge, the slaneesh with lava and the Khorne standing on a field of bones.

Once cured I will prime them on their bases. Never done it in this order before, and will see how it goes.

Also, just mixed up my third round of tiles. It takes three rounds with the molds I have to make one 1' X 1' section of my Venice board. This will make two down and 7 to go ;) but only one more 6" X 1 foot section, left. I figured it out the other day, it will take a total of 1137 tiles of various sizes to make the 4' X 4' board. Does not include the walls of the canals...

Just got the daemons primed. The temp is dropping so figured I better get it done now.

I glued up a 1' X 1' and a 6" X 1' board sections for my Venice board with the tiles I got casted yesterday. Trying to cast up enough today for another 1X1 section. I have 7 to go, but all the other ground level sections are glued. Probably take me a couple of months to finish this up. Canals are about half way glued up.

Long week, so didn't get much done.

Did just lay the tiles on another 1x1 square for the Venice board. Been way to cold in the garage to cast.

Put down the first red coat on my blood letters. Daemons are about all I have primed right now.

Thanks, I found an 11th that I picked up somewhere and it was Primed!

Started playing catch up with that one this morning.

Now I am just trying to figure out how I want to do the swords...
