Well, hope y'all having a great Christmas and you all got what you asked Santa for. I did - eventually. My Wife ordered me this Bad Boy and i'd had it on pre-order for quite a while and it shipped on the 12th, so hoped it'd arrive in time. It didn't, but at least it came on day after Boxing Day:

Figure there's two ways i could go about the working section of this here craft: (1) Continue the whole wing-theme that's been going on and have another one hanging down in the middle, or (2) Go completely different - maybe a nice, blocky shape? Thought another wing would be too much, so have decided to go with the latter. First up though, was to cover up the gaping whole on the underside which, of course was the cockpit area when it was up the right way. For that i've used a bit from, i think, the Airfix Refueling set for a blanking plate to attach things to:

Okay, in an effort to stop it looking like white dog poo, i've gone for a sickly, ripped apart scheme. Also, as i've based it on a slug, i thought some slime might be in order for it to drool and dribble. That was easy - when all the painting was over, just drizzle freshly melted Hot Glue over the jaw area and, when set, tint it with clear paint.

Okay, so here's the little stubby wings on:
Big, big box arrived and in it these three beauties. I'm not doing anything to any of them - Red Robin's red is metallic but not very noticible, Huntress' is a tad garish but it works at this scale, and the bonus Batman on Bat-Signal hasn't any metallic to it at all. And a very nice sculpt it is too.

With my Son planning on all sorts of devices to bung at me, figure i'll be needing some artillery of me own. With Chaos, that's this here Hellcannon - a lovely device where you feed dead bodies in the back, the souls are extracted then fired out the front. I was thinking of making one of my own, but this built and primed in black one was going cheap on the 'Bay, so i got it:

Being an occasional series while the paint is drying, the glue is hardening or waiting for enthusiasm to come back, where i have a waffle on the things, films, books and whatnot that had a direct influence on me, getting me into this hobby or the whole SF/fantasy malarky.

Having a rummage through a bits box, i came across this:

Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear. Remember when the Star Wars prequels were announced and you go "Hope, they're good - if they're not, then they'll spoil memories of the originals". Then you get to see it. And what you get is a pale rehash of what's gone before, clumsily handled, with all the charm siphoned off, with flashy CGI effects that aren't a patch on what's been seen already. A hollow, waste of time. With Liam Neeson. "Groundhog Day!"

Okay, had a day off today, with my Wife at work and the Sprogs at school, so had time to focus and finish off my Orky build. Here it is just before Primer stage, with final detail added:
