...for I have sinned. It has been 4 days since my last post. I have entered a branch of the Evil Empire twice and have engaged in commerce with them*.
*for those in need of translation, I have been into a GW shop and bought some GW products.
Please forgive me!
There's no need to worry though, I haven't tumbled down the slippery slope that leads to the world of Grimdark. This was just to get some "Bitz" sprues for modding the road-sweeper.
And from the look of the sprues, I'll have enough to do lots of post-apoc vehicles. The big bag contains "Baneblade Sponsons and Accessories", the smaller pack is a sprue of Space Marines (©, ™, cease and desist letter sent, court proceedings pending, etc, etc, etc) "Meltaguns". Looking at the Baneblade sprues, I didn't actually need to buy the Meltaguns - there are weapons galore for me to use.
Apart from this brief trip to the dark side, I have been reasonably busy. On Tuesday evening I applied modeling past to the trunks of the trees to give them some texture (and to fill gaps between the bottom of the "branches" and the tops of the plastic trunk bases). This evening I've added a mix of modeling paste and large grain gel, with a couple of drops of brown ink, to the bases. I should be able to finish them over the weekend - painting the trunks, the ground and the rims of the washers; adding some brown scatter material and a little static grass to the bases.
And then I'll be free to work on the road-sweeper. And to finish off the 6mm Union infantry who are staring accusingly at me.
