Sci-fi bases for models include all sorts of things, and being a huge fan of the Aliens movies (yes, I even liked Alien 3 but not Alien 4!) I decided for my growing Tyranide Hive Fleet Eviscera horde I would custom-make space ship deck bases for all of my bug models. I’d scratchbuild a bunch of bases then cast them in resin so I could make as many as I want.
Yikes! Has it really been that long since I’ve posted? Sorry about that, I’ve been really busy! I’ve been doing scale models recently, I was on a holiday, plus sick this week, but I’m getting back into the swing of things! Inspired by the Hammerfest/Goonpocalypse last weekend at Warhammer World
After months of it being just a pink and white monster, I finished the the ‘Big Red Building’ and a few other pieces last year for the game table:
Here are the Chaos Spawn I made a while back! I think I might make more, since I have so many Tyranid bits and they are kinda fun to make…
Because Havocs with Autocannons are the go-to choice for Chaos Space Marines, that’s all I’ve been using (except when I needed Lascannons against the Necron chariot, woop!). So I need 4 Autocannons to equip my guys. So far I’ve been proxying the black and purple Chaos Marines I got off ebay (now painted in the colors of the Flaming Spears!), or using my fully painted Chosen, but I’ve been wanting to scratchbuild an autocannon for a while now.
When I got started I had two choices:
- build 4 (or 8) autocannons, which would get boring after the 2nd to be honest, or
- build 1 really nice autocannon and try casting it in resin
So I went with option 2 – got started during the first group painting sesh with one of the Hammertime 40K guys:
