Shana is sick - so I stayed home today to make soup and while she was sleeping I worked on the Fortress.

Here are a couple photos of mostly finished inside - I have mostly finished two towers - a few details left to do - I am only going to be able to mostly finish things until I am able to glue things down. I can't glue until I paint... I can't paint until I have mostly assembled everything.... So I am getting more and more mostly finished.

Also - a bits request - does anyone have any more of these things? or know what they are from? I also need those neat little banners that go on rhinos or other vehicles. Please.

Not too much happening right now. I am trying to add some details to finalize wall sections to prep for painting. I want to paint most of it before I assemble, otherwise it will be impossible for me to paint completely. Then I can glue it down and just worry about the areas where wall sections meet the towers and the base (which will probably need plasticard work once things are glued anyway).

This is the longest wall section and the first section with the Imperial Aquila. I have added some details in the arches and some piping for detail and to break up the solid white wall section.

Image

This is the Communications tower - I finally riveted the edges and added a bunch of wires. The Forge World bit in the center is on a removable base because it is so awesome. Also, because it will make a cool objective in other games and did I mention it is awesome (Thanks Liddic!)
Image

The last picture is from the next guard tower. It will end up looking very similar to first tower I made. But this is the first step - the inner door. The vent is from Dragon Forge, which also makes all of those awesome cables everyone loves so much.

Everything is looking awesome Jack!

I'ma try and get my hobby mojo kickstarted again by trying to paint up my Combat/Protector Servitor (as a counts as Eversor Assassin) for the Standish event. If I can follow through with that, maybe I'll start on the terrain again.

Oh and I'm a super dummy. You're name dropping of Dragon Forge made me go to their site and impulse buy some things... but I forgot to also purchase those vents (which was the reason I went there in the first place...) Stupid haha.

I have a mess of their vents.

They're awesome.

Oh No! What happened to my Arbites Precinct? I finally measured the base - it is 26 inches by 24 at the widest parts. That is pretty big.

Phew.... There it is... just parts of it getting primed.

Reassembled with some metal stormtroopers standing around.

Painting will begin very soon.
