I've been neglecting my blog for the past couple weeks as I finished up a scenery commission, but I have some time to take stock and figure out what to work on next...
I picked up the Gaslands rulebook (and a few cars), and have been giving that a read. A "Road Warrior" themed game is something I have always been interested in. I love the idea of converting Hot Wheels cars with armor and weapons to turn them into rolling death machines!
These are my first four cars. I'm posting these photos mainly so I have some good "before" pictures of the vehicles once I start working on them. I chose them because they have a lot of options for mounting weapons, and a few of them already have a "kit-bashed" aesthetic. I need to look at my spare Flames of War infantry to see if they are similarly scaled. If so, I'll use the figures to represent crew on the open-topped cars and gun turrets.
For my Nighthaunt, the units of Grimghast Reapers and Myrmourn Banshees are primed and ready to paint. My army is currently around 1500 points, and these two units will take me to 2000 points. From there. I'll be able to begin filling out unit selections and characters to take advantage of warscroll battalions and specific tactics.
I did a little bit of painting on the Myrmourns today, using my other Banshee as a color reference.
On the scenery front, I've picked up a Bonetithe Nexus to convert into some larger mausoleums and crypts.
I have cut apart some of the steps, and plan to combine them with pieces from the Sigmarite Mausoleum (aka, Garden of Morr) set.
I am also looking forward to finishing the left over tower from my Warscryer Citadel. I'll be sure to document these scenery builds with a "project log" series of posts.
Last but not least, I need to repair Marduk the Ghoul King, who has lost his hand. I'd like to tell you a tale of how he lost it in glorious battle, but alas, it just broke off when I was taking him out of his foam tray. It's a fairly clean break, so I can glue it back on, but I might have to use a little putty to smooth over the join before I touch up the paint.
