1. Finished the memory stick. After I began gluing the painted parts together, I decided I’d prefer it without the rust/grime, and wanted to make it all shiny again, but it was too late. ono

    But it still looks cool, anyhow. The plastic from the memory stick case was hell to work with ‘cause it had that ‘soft touch’ coating on it, so it didn’t cut or glue very easily.

    If I did it again, I’d pick a stick with nicer plastic, and a less curvy design, to work with. I’m also thinking of making some to sell at some point. Any takers?

     

  2. I found an old freebie memory stick from my first year at uni, and decided to make it a cool new case. In the end I couldn’t find anything to use as a basis for it, so I’m just customizing the original case.

     

  3. Some photos of the whole Battlewagon now it’s finished. All the bits are magnetized, and the whole lot is interchangeable. Someday I may get the Deff Rolla upgrade pack, but for now, I’m done.

    The final photo is my favourite layout for the bits.

     

  4. Finally got the last bits of my Battlewagon painted! ^.^

    More photos to come tomorrow.

     

  5. 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-papercraft.html

     

  6. 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.

     

  7. 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.

     

  8. 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!

     

  9. 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.

     

  10. 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.
