The Long weekend, And The short Week……………………………….

Posted: April 9, 2015 in Cities Of Death, Warhammer 40000

So with the 4 day weekend out of the way, what did i get up too? Well first off me and the wife played 6 games of Zombicide (mostly in the evening when their was nothing on TV).

I also started painting the Bloodthirster that I bought the other week, as well as trying out an new colour scheme for my Dark Eldar and figuring out what colours to use for my Imperial Knight!

DSCN0570

Over the past few weeks I have been working on a new piece for Cites Of Death, now when I say new I mean old but getting a “big” face lift!DSCN0571Now I started this model some years back (way back in 2009) and it was based on a 300 x 600mm MDF base with a 50mm polystyrene plinth (their was also going to be a rear section). Now when I started this project I bought 4 of the Shrine Of The Aquila kits as a base, of which I have used about 2. I also added in some normal CoD tiles.

However time has not been good to the model while it has been in storage, the base was damaged by water and the model had started to come away from polystyrene plinth. Also a few of the floor sections had come lose or been lost. When I got it back home I took the decision to scrap the base and re-do all the floors. Removing the model was easy as it had started to come away any way, however disaster struck as I lifted the model from the base to place it on the table. It snapped just above the arched door in the centre, due the fact that their was a join in the floor tiles and a join in the parapet running between the two towers. It did however make life easier when replacing the floors and allowed me to “bridge” the arch way wit a new all-in-one floor. I have also took the opportunity to change a few bits, like replacing the parapet and moving the replacement panels for the door ways forward.

I just need to add a few more details and it will be ready to paint!

Hopefully next week I can set up some Tablescape tiles and get some photos done.

Now back to that imperial Knight…………….
