40k Open Day 2017

So I was at the 40k Open Day Saturday and as always here are some of the pictures I took, plus a bit of info.

Specialist Games.

Blood Bowl:

Elf Union team out soon (as we've seen obviously).
We may see the next team in January before being released within a few months after that.
Nurgle team is "in production" which could mean many things, not being boxed up at the moment...though I hope it will be the one in the new year. Bloaters sound great.

Necromunda:

Orlocks are next (again we we've seen) with Gang War II coming along at the same time with rules for them.
By the end of next year we will have the big six gangs out.
Also coming - spring time was mentioned - we'll have Genestealer Cult, Chaos Cult and Bounty Hunter gangs in White Dwarf.
The Chaos gang is based around the Dark Vengeance cultists, but you can add things like a Spawn and a psyker. It was mentioned that the chaos gang are based around the idea of dissatisfied hivers and workers rebelling against the tyrants above and calling on the chaos gods to help them.

Pictures for Necromunda:

Blessings of the Plaguefather - Plague Hulk Redux 4

Nearing the end of this build now.

Still a bit more to do, namely:

  • Decide on front legs pose & attach - add additional texture as required.
  • Decide on and finish head of CC weapon, plus any texture to weapon itself.
  • Some minor clean up.
But for now here are the current set of pictures:


The four legs have been pinned in place with 2mm brass rod running through the body.






The one front claw is not fixed in place yet, that is the current idea of the pose, with the other front claw in place it'll be something like...


Finally some close up detail shots:

So Saturday I paid a visit to the IPMS Model World show.


As always I grabbed pictures of anything that grabbed my attention...some pictures aren't the best quality...

Blessings of the Plaguefather - Plague Hulk Redux 3

So the two arms have progressed.

Right arm...




Onto the left arm.

Started with the gun, basic shape.




From there I needed to sort how to attach it and keep it removable.


The styrene arrangement was then fixed in place with some brass rod.


The gun slots in place snugly and doesn't fall off.



Then a shed load of Green Stuff was added. This is the basic shape, once cured shaping and detailing etc will be done to both the arm and the gun.





And with the gun in place:





I have also been plugging away on the legs...note, crap pictures.





Getting there gradually.

Blessings of the Plaguefather - Plague Hulk Redux 2

Bit more work done.

Head in place, guts added and exhausts in place.


As I am sure it is highlighted in these better pictures areas still need cleaning up, I'll do that at the end once everything else it finished - no point doing it now as some areas may get re-worked and covered at a later stage.



While the exhausts are in place the GS around them is just rough bulking out, it will be covered and texture etc added over it.









Not glued in place yet is another Nurgling, below he is just positioned for a couple of pics.
