On Hold

This week is a waiting week, I've got several bits incoming that I'll be using on re Enorm Björn, and I still need to get a battery for that led.

I've also added this wolf scout Sgt that I'll be painting as Gregor in his Blood Claw days, plan to add a couple of knives to the back of the hand as a type of punch dagger/claws.

The Enorm Björn

Picked up the led kit this morning, but was too tired and hungry to trudge through town looking for a battery, looking like Tuesday for that.

Not happy that the side plates have been swopped around and if I hadn't glued the arm mounts in place I'd be taking the swivel mounts off and fitting the Björn plates on the right sides, as it is I have 2 choices, mount them over the side or mount them the wrong way round.

I messed around a bit more and tried the claws and got the plastic mock fur effect shoulder cover to fit over the Redemptor paldron with no effort whatsoever.

I've left the sarcophagus cover loose as well as the top plate so I can mount the LED's inside and leaving the rocket pod off just in case I can't fit them in there.

I'm planning on sticking the LED's behind the skull to light up the interior but need to buy a 3.5cm battery but have a package coming from Amazon today so will struggle to get that today.

Replacement For Timberwolf

I built this around actually working tonight, realised I'd left some Björn bits on the sprue and left the Frost Cannon at home so wasn't able to get started on the conversation of that I wanted to get done tonight, I also left the pivoting gear elbow at home as well so had to leave the housing unglued.

I did pack the big plasma cannon, and cut it in the narrow part where it's only held on by 2 parts. I glued the ribbed section together then set about tiding up the snipped bits to fit a couple of magnets in.
I'm bringing the box with the Redemptor Dreadnought in with me tonight so I can finish this off and sort out what bits are what and hope to get some paint on Timberwolf as well.

Plans For Groß Bjórn

I've got a couple of bits still to come for this, so will most likely do the updated Timberwolf first.

The Bjórn bits will be snipped off the sprue later today and added to the Redemptor box for later, thinking of giving it the axe and shield and seeing if I can finesse the Frost Cannon onto the BFG plasma cannon without it looking crap.

So might look at doing that tonight.

Monthly Vow For November Addendum

Yes I noticed that I haven't actually said what I plan to do this month,

My main aim is to mash these 2 together, I've also bought a LED kit to light up the internal space.
Beyond that the bits that don't go on the Redemptor or possibly get sold on are going to make a second version of Timberwolf, who got repainted for the Bjórn time line.
Having also just bought my oldest her tickets home and back again for Christmas, I need to check my bank again , to see what's left before doing any more buying, so I dug out the nurglingy buts from the First Strike box to paint as well this month, or I might try to swop with my Death Guard playing mate.

Monthly Vow, 12th Of November To The 12th Of December

Big month!

I cheated a bit at the start by finishing off the Ironclad.

I then did the old metal dread.

And the basic plastic dread.

And the reason for the Dread Filled Month, although I didn't place at armies on parade , although I think this might have had something to do with not displaying in the store on the day.

I then went a different way, before slipping back, by painting Gregor Fell Hand from The Burning of Prospero box for a side project.

I did a couple of practice pieces for the next dread to see which wash looked better and went with agrax earthshade.

I did this one and started to plan a board for next year's armies on parade by touching up the chaos dreads, just not sure if I'll do Black Legion or Word Barers.

I slipped in the other arms for the Ironclad.

On the same night I did this for the base of the Big Bjórn.

And this base for the metal Bjórn

As well as repainting the plastic Bjórn.

For the Fell Handed Time Line project.

Before starting this, not 100% happy with these guys, I'm going to buy some more of the Zinge Industries bendy ammo feeds for the arms so I can refit the magazines in a standard position rather than where ever I could get the plastic feeds from the kit to reach.

I do like them but need to get a few snags sorted on them.

And scale creep.

And the Flamestorm Aggressors squad finished, just in time for a game tomorrow, 1000 points patrol against my mates new Eldar army.
