Eldar Lynx pt2

After a good bit of progress on the first revenant titan, I had a bit of an issue with the masking tape being too strong... Suffice to say, I get to redo the whole body after scraping off all the paint.

Having since bought some tamiya masking tape instead, things are starting to progress again, and inbetween scraping off paint, I'm working on the lynx.

So far I've got the main colour scheme down, and now it's mostly just tidying up lines, and working on details.

Meanwhile the revenants really need to get done soon, so I can make space and time for the cobra mark II and Eldar Phantom Titan that I have since received:

Eldar Lynx

Well the power supply for the spray booth has finally arrived (Icelandic customs were a bit difficult for a while) so there should be progress on the titans very soon again.

In the mean while however, I was working on the fire drakes, which are nearly done prepping, while vulkan is chilling in a soapy bath.

I also could not resist working on the lynx a bit, and it looks awesome!
It currently has everything attached that doesn't need to be painted seperately, and is awaiting its soapy bath before painting.

While working on it, it felt like similar size to wave serpents/falcons/prisms.. then I put one next to it.

Vulkan lives

Well there's a bit of a delay on the titan as I nearly passed out using the airbrush. 

I've since gotten a proper mask and a spray booth, however unfortunately the power supply for the spray booth wasn't in the package.

While waiting for the replacement power supply I've instead been working on preparing the second revenant, and as a big package has just arrived I could not resist working a bit on Vulkan.

Coming up next, both revenant titans, a squadron of vypers, 2 wraith knights, vulkan, fire drakes, an eldar lynx and possibly some other stuff, as usual in random order

Big things on the horizon

While the revenant titan is nearing completion, things haven't been quiet on the Necron front either.

The latest addition has been a Tesseract Vault, with the C'tan magnetized so it can be used as a transcendant C'tan as well:

Back in action - Revenant titan

Well it's been a loooong time.
I took a year of not doing warhammer at all, and then when I got back to it, my friend and me decided to rename the blog and do it together... and then completely forgot about it for about 2 years.

I figure it's time to finally get back to it, and while I'm at it, it's been loooong overdue to finally finish on the revenant titan from (wow) 3 years ago. Too scared to work on it for several years, but now I have an airbrush, and got over the fear of drilling in to it a while ago, so there's progress!

I intend to finish the paint job on the titan itself by the end of the week, and then need to finish the base.

As for the blog, there should be more updates coming finally, and for multiple different armies.

Happy Holidays!

Unfortunately December has been very busy with birthdays and holiday preparations, so I didn't have time to make a space marine with christmas hat, as I had planned ;)

Merry X-mas (or your preferred holiday) and an awesome new year to everyone!

I for one have made the new years resolution to paint a LOT more, and finish building my revenant titan during January

Back 2 Base-ix the rack, acrylic hobby desk organizer

Ever since the rest of my painting group decided to quit warhammer, I've had a pretty large table to myself.
Even so, I've managed to get so much stuff crammed in, that I still run out of space to put things.
This is the disaster that was my hobby area:

I decided it was time to do something about it, and after watching a blue table painting video on "the rack" from back 2 base-ix, this seemed the perfect solution.
The website offers multiple different parts, which connect with rare-earth magnets, to form a whole rack.
You can customize which parts you want, and which colors/material, and which paint types you want it to hold.
I opted for a multi-part rack, with space for tools, bits, GW paints, and vallejo paints.

Once it arrives, it's a little daunting.. all of it needs assembly, and I know what you're thinking, how hard can it be? Well... very, you definitely need the video manuals for at least the first section you try to put together.
Thankfully it comes with a DVD manual for this (although mine was missing, but after a quick message they sent me the DVD and a link to youtube versions to get going), so once you get the hang of it, it becomes quite easy to put together.

I received the following parts:

Main section with GW paints, and 2 drawers

Front view of main section
Bits box drawers

The bits boxes are included

Tool rack, with boxes for flock etc.

Inner corner, with vallejo paint layout

External corner with GW paint layout

As you may notice, the tool rack is currently missing its drawer, which is because I received a wrong sized one (another of the size for the main section), their customer service is pretty quick though, and a new one is already on its way.

All sections have 2 rare-earth magnets on the side, so once they're attached to each other they don't slide away from each other, and all sections come with rubber feet, so I've not seen any issues with keeping the whole thing together.

The only thing that was a bit dissapointing, is that the bits box doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the design. It's about half height, and simply box shaped so I had to leave it to the side.

Here's some pictures of the completed setup, with a much nicer hobby area as a result.

All in all, aside from some minor issues with delivery, which were rectified within half a hour, I'm extremely happy with the result.
I've got a nice hobby area now, with space for all my paints, and tools. and plenty of open space inbetween to work.
The rest of the table is suddenly nicely empty, so time to fit more models? ;)
