I was having a conversation the other day about finding more sets/ pieces of the original foam Mighty Fortress and the idea of painting what you have before buying more of the same came up. There was also a side discussion about buying versus building and what materials make the best terrain. Those are sides to the main idea here.
I broke out some unfinished models that I had started 1990ish before I got bogged down in college and drifted away from the hobby.
First up though, lets look at the figures for this week.
Not as far along as I'd like but I got the knights cleaned and assembled. I also primed two of the cannon crew and the two laborers. The gunner needs a little bit of putty to fix a nasty mold line in his helmet. As I told you previously, he seemed to have a mismatched mold half or something. There was a significant mold line and a difference of about a millimeter in height on some parts.
I also brought out some Foundry Rogue Trader models and even some plastic Blood Bowl Orcs (not pictured).
But then I got a tad distracted by terrain.
The barn from a White Dwarf Article. I've carted it around in a box between four states for the last 28 years or so.
I finally started putting a roof on it this week. I did start to equivocate about making playable interiors but then decided I had been putting things off for too long. So I'm gittin er dun!
I'll be posting a build log at some point.
