Finished 40k Photography Backdrop

Hello all, 

I'm back again with my finished 40k backdrop. I'm very very pleased with how it all came out!

 A few bits of scenery and voila, it really nice back drop. Everything was sprayed white to start, the walls and floor were then painted mechanics standard grey and then dry brushed with administratum grey and then dawn stone. To give a little more shading I used watered down  biel tan green, nuln oil, reikland fleshshade and agrax earthshade to create damp patches, algae, mud and the like to break up the grey.

The pipes and boiler were brass scorpion based, reikland flesh shade washed and then dry brushed with boltgun metal, heavier towards the bottom of the boiler to give some wear.

The copper was then given a decent coat of typhus corrosion in all the places that would collect a lot of dirt. Ryza rust was applied in those areas too, followed by nihlic oxide for more coppery corrosion. Finally I added some nurgles for out of the dripping tap and leaky pipe for a little detail. 
The red barrel was painted scab red, then dry brushed boltgun metal, then mithril silver and a little nurgles rot for a little dribble.
The ladder and support strut at the top was painted boltgun metal, washed in afraid earthshade and then typhus corrosion and ryzarusted.
Lastly the two bits of paper were simply folded in half as washed with agrax earthshade and reikland fleshshade.

Overall I love it and can't wait to get it in my light box for pictures!

Well that's all for today, feel free to leave a comment below whether good, bad or inbetween and thanks for reading!

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.

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.

40k Abandoned Factory Display

Hello all,

I'm back again today with my next display project. Next?! You say? Well yes. I really enjoyed making my last small backdrop so much, I've elected to make a bigger one. This will be for photography of larger models and squads and for table top play as well. I'm doing the centre section first, the interior then the exterior and then the addition of two ruined pieces for the ends. This should be enough to tide me over until 8th ed rolls along.
