WIP Heavy Gear Army:
This particular Emir has close ties with the Mekon Dominion, hence his "army" has something of a police motif going on. The 750 point list consists of just 12 Gears - 8 Jaegers, 3 Spitting Cobras and a Black Mamba, organised into two GP sections and a Fire Support section. I've only just finished applying the first ink wash, so there's no point showing you the whole force just yet. Instead, here's a WIP photo of a Spitting Cobra.

I've also been working on expanding the studio's collection of Post Apocalypse terrain. Again, these are mostly half-finished pieces. I made about a half-dozen of these CD-based wall sections a month or so ago, but I've been too busy to do much work on them until now. This one is closest to completion. Once it's had some graffiti and a bit of a re-paint where bits of gravel have fallen off the base, it'll be good to go. The pink kitchen wall complete with rusty fridge-freezer (refrigerator) is my favourite of the bunch.
|The worn paint affect was achieved by painting over foam-card lubricated with some wax.|
|Again, I used a little wax on the foam card to help get the streak effect just right.|
|This fountain has a long way to go yet.|
Finally, here we have a Games Workshop modular hill.Ordinarily, I wouldn't have bought this, as you can buy a ready-flocked, ready-painted hill of similar quality much cheaper elsewhere. However, for my purposes, buying an un-flocked, un-painted hill was preferable. I didn't have to scrape flock of the hill to make it barren. I simply undercoated it and dry-brushed it. Ten minutes later, I had a great-looking hill for Post Apocalypse gaming.
