40k Abandoned Factory Display: Barrels



Hello all,

This is the next part of my Abandoned Factory Display, some gooed up barrels! The idea behind these is they will add some good LOS blocking terrain to what could be a very open area. 
This is my first attempt in tryingbto use resin as a sort of water effect, all be it a slimey version of it.


The barrel itself is made from a cocktail stick holder that has had a bottle lid placed in it to act as a false floor. The cocktail ho?der was rimmed down a little and then the lid was simply pushed in. Pure luck that they fit! 


It was then undercoated black and the painted Caliban Green. Chips and scratches were added using Boltgun Metal and Rhinox Hide and a little Ryza rust for good measure.


I painted a basic skull and covered it in Blood For The Blood God. This was left to mostly dry. The barrel was filled with 2 part epoxy resin, from my local Pound land. The bottom layer was mixed with Vallejo Scorpion Green and poured into the barrel. The skull was placed on top and then a shallower layer of clear resin was poured on top. This allowed allowed you to see the skull clearley but still have a gooey unbdetneath as the two layers swirled and mixed a little as it was being poured in.

My first tester barrel came rather well for a first try, so today I made another 3 buyt slightly differently. The same barrel making technique was used but the resin process was changed slightly.


The barrel on the far left and second from right were poured with resin that had a small amount of Carroburg Crimson in it. Just enough to colour the resin, but not enough to lose the transparity. The barrel second from right had its inside painted pink to help intensify the colour. The barrel on this left however had its interior painted green and it was then washed in Carroburg Crimson after setting. The has given it a dark matt effect, but is still noticeably a pinkish substance.

The barrel on the far right has a small piece cut out of it for damage and the resin was coloured with Biel-tan Green which turned it opaque but gave it a nice rich green hue. This was poured in and swirled to give a gooey effect and a small blob was vallowed to run down the outside of the barrel and set naturally, to give the effect of a small spillage.



My favourite little detail on this is the labels. They're marked as drinking water, but what can we see under the peeling label on the right? I'm making a dodgy factory afterall! They've since been given a wash of Agrax Earthshade to grimy them up a bit. 

Well that another little bit done. All the terrain is removeable and repositionable for gaming and photos. This week I hope to get the main interior of the factory done and undercoated but I feel it needs more SciFi and gothic trimmings, so I'll see what I can do!

As always feel free too leave comments below,

Start Collecting Skitarii Review

Hey all, today I'm giving my little review on the new Start Collecting Skitarii box. Firstly for a GW price of  £50 ($85) these are exceptional value, in this box set the Dunewalker is £40, Rangers/Vanguard £23.50 and the Dominus £22. Even at £50, that's a £35.50 saving. If you're like me and bought it from an online store ( Goblin Gaming for me, 20% discount and £3.90 postage, just under 50% off standalone retail price)


Scenery: Imperial Sector Buildings WIP

Hi all

Its been a while since anything new was posted on SotA which I think has been due to both myself and Zebulon having a little break from doing anything major. I've been tinkering with a few bits and pieces for the last few weeks and now find myself ready to get back into the swing of things.

So first up are the buildings from the Imperial Sector box. I was lucky enough to find this box in my local store at the old price of about £52 rather than the new £70 price. I hadn't intended to buy it but I knew I'd regret not buying it. It took me a couple of weeks to assemble the buildings which was slow by my standards (due to the decreased nature of hobby activities).

So lets get on with the pictures.


Slaughterpriest Painting Challenge

Hey all, we're back today with another of myself and Blackmane's painting challenges. Since we both picked up the shiney new version of White Dwarf, we though it fitting to do a challenge based of the Slaughterpriest that came with it. 
We have 2 weeks from today to complete the model in anyway we see fit and then we will put it up as a poll to see who the victor is! 
On a slightly related note, myself and Blackmane have both moved house in the last couple of months each gaining a hobby room/studio. This explains our lack of posts recently and should allow us both increased content for our little blog which we hope you will enjoy going forward.
Paint brushes at the ready..... GO!!
