1. New photo for my website which I’m redesigning right now. Y’all can still download the Steamlands Papercraft pack from my site here: http://www.estragonhelmer.com/steamlands.html


  2. Another short break from not painting, in which I managed to paint up the final hatch covering. So now, I just need to do the two Orks in the back, and I’ll be done! ^.^

    I magnetized the mounting for the gun so it can swivel, and be replaced by other bits.


  3. I’ve been working on this project on-and-off for a while now, and I’ve already given a few teasers, but now it’s finally ready to put out there, at least in beta testing mode anyhow.

    I’d like to ask everyone to reblog this, and spread it around, even if you’re not geographically close enough to join in. The more people that see this, the better chance I have of getting somewhere with this project.

    Thankyou for any signups, reblogs, or ideas you can offer.


  4. The Tabletop Realm turned 2 today!

    Wowza! I started this blog when I began my first (well, technically second, but the truly first was for college, rather than for me) miniature project. I’ve been miniaturing for 2 whole years! ^.^

    Here’s to many more, eh guys!


  5. In a short interlude to not painting; painting!

    I finished off the large turret. Still a couple of guns, a hatch, and some Orks to go, but I’m almost there now. I’m pleased with how the glow came out on the Zzap Gun, which was something I’ve not tried before.


  6. Having to take a break from painting for a while, so I’m revisiting an old project. Every now and then I come back to it, and revamp it for another version. It’s coming together this time, so hopefully I’ll have stuff to show for it soon.


  7. Magnetizing the large turret in such a way that (hopefully) if I ever get the upgrade pack, I’ll be able to just snap the new gun right into it. There’s a lot of magnets here.

    The side (left) has a magnetized strut for holding the hatch option on the top. This is glued to the inside of the curved wall, and has a shelf on the other end to help glue it onto the back wall when the whole thing goes together.

    The gun mount is magnetized, and the gun has the two lugs cut off and drilled out to fit magnets in.

    The magnets on the front piece allow me to remove it to swap the guns, and (hopefully) to be able to swap it with the more open front from the upgrade pack.

    I also magnetized the periscope, with just a magnet on the bottom. It attaches inside on a magnet on top of a stick of styrene.


  8. That Ork took forever to paint. So many different colours! >.<


  9. Painted the back roof part. I’m working on the mount for the Grabba Claw now. I’ve had the arm and the claw painted for a while, but I’ll wait until it’s all finished before I post photos.

    I got a new sketchbook, so I’m planning on doing some requests to get me back into sketching again.

    I’ve got 46 followers right now, so I’ll begin taking requests when I hit 50. You don’t have to be a new follower to request anything, if you’ve been there a while, you still get a chance!

    You need to be following me to get a chance. Just send me an ask with what you’d like to see. Anything from a full idea, to a single word for inspiration! I might not accept everything, but I’ll do whatever sounds interesting.

    You can begin requesting now, but I’ll only start once I hit 50 followers. So get asking, guys!

    Not sure if anyone’s here for the artsy side of my minis, but I won’t pass up the chance for a bit of shameless self-advertising.
