I have actually also painted other things...

... just not 'models'.

Back before Warpstorm I was lucky enough to purchase a set of terrain from Wargames Tournaments, that included free worldwide shipping.

Unfortunately it arrived after the tournament so I set about undercoating and assembling.

This was my first MDF terrain and I really did not appreciate the time and effort it would take (optimism bias off the chart). However perseverance, some advice from Peter Dunn on sprays, and I got there in the end. I did do a spot of weathering as well.

With this product I have found that despite a desire to break it down and reassemble it every time, the practicalities of this are unrealistic (also some parts don't lock/wedge together tightly enough so require constant adjusting). So next purchase is some glue that works on painted surfaces and two 60L containers to store it.

This is a 6'x3' setup







One of the things this set was lacking was some LoS blocking terrain - enter Jake Easton who whipped me up some 6"x3" containers. Time to call that done.




Will be a good table to play over for Kill Team (or Necromunda) too.

So I have painted a model...

... actually painted one! Yes just the one. 

After comment that it was a pity the Dark Apostle for my Word Bearers wasn't painted, I went ahead and painted it.




He will fit in nicely and add some flavour and character (I mean, what sort of Word Bearer army wouldn't have a Dark Apostle?) 

The army is now up on eBay, we'll see how that goes.

Time to let my Word Bearers go

I built this army back in 2008/2009 specifically to take to Liber Animus in Melbourne. 
Army Diary on Wargamerau

I was pretty happy to receive the Best Army award there, given the luminaries of the Australasian wargaming scene of the time that were in attendance.

And the stuff I built but never got around to painting...





It's all going up for sale on the local NZ Facebook trading sites for a week or so... if no bites then off to eBay!
