Just a short post this week – following last week’s tournament I spent the early part of the week at home ill. However, my week certainly brightened up as it went on, since it was my birthday on Thursday, where I was lucky enough to be gifted with some additional bits and pieces of hobby-related things!
I’d already treated myself to a copy of Super Dungeon Explore, which I hope to play with the wife and others quite soon. I had also decided to treat myself to the Steel Phalanx starter set, so I can finally finish fleshing out the Steel Phalanx side of my Aleph. I was also given a bunch of X-Wing ships from the wife and a couple of friends – what started as two X-Wings and four TIE Fighters (aka the contents of two starters) has now grown to a GR-75 transport with the additional X-Wing, a YT-1300, a B-Wing and a TIE Interceptor! I should be able to get some really fun games in with all that!
Anyway, getting back on track, last week, before the tournament I’d been working hard to get the new additions to the lists painted up – while I did finish the Kaeltar and associated Symbiomates, I’d forgotten to photograph her for the blog, so here she is:
I deliberately tried to highlight all the black areas differently – armour blacks were highlighted with grey, the suit material was highlighted with a couple of mixes with Charadon Granite, while the coat with highlighted with P3 Coal Black up to Kabalite Green. It may look a little too subtle (black is a colour I find really tough to highlight – and photograph – correctly), but hopefully you get the idea from the images above.
I also built up the Steel Phalanx starter, although I’ve run out of Antenociti’s Workshop bases part way through, so I’ll have to get some more of them soon. Also pictured is the Dozer that I won last week. Eudoros normally has his foot on a rock, which I wanted to get rid of, and luckily the Traktor Mul Control Device that comes with the Dozer was the perfect height for him to put his foot on (I figured that the case-like thing slung over the Dozer’s shoulder would suffice as a kind of rugged-looking laptop to represent the Control Device if I ever decided to get any Traktor Muls). The rest of the models were pretty much untouched in terms of changes/adaptations, although sadly the small rail on the top of the Agema’s Missile Launcher had to go as it got irreparably bent out of shape while I was cleaning the flash off of it!
That’s it for this post! Until next time, thanks for reading!
