So recently I have been working on my broodlord. I finally bent and bended into a jumping position. I filled in the gaps with green stuff. I just have to do some minor basing and he will be done. I bought the GW 40k basing kit and well I am disappointed. It has great things for urban bases and mostly space marine/imperium related. So, for my winter and tyranid theme it does....well....nothing. I don't want to show so many urban/imperium stuff to take away from my army. I will have to use some spare stuff just to get my hormaguants themed the right way.

Paint Stripping

Posted in

I just started paint stripping a lot of my tyranid models. It has been a learning process. I am using brake fluid. I left the models overnight and then scrubbed them. I would say 90% of the paint come off and some primer. After doing that I had to dispose the break fluid by regulation cause it was smelling bad and my apartment complex was getting to stink. I should have a video up when its all done on youtube. I also finished cleaning up all the hormaguants I had. I am so behind on everything. I need to find someway to base all them like the test figures. I dont know what I am going to do next. I can either spend time cleaning the models I am in the process of stripping or assemble the tyranid warrior models I have in plastic. I have some thinking to do.



I bought Imperial Armour 4 the other day along with some superglue and the bench vice by GW. IA4 is a really great read. Its a shame that the rules dont apply anymore. I guess the next buy on my forgeworld list is Imperial armour: Apocalypse.

No progress


Well I have made no progress on the modeling side of Hive Fleet Erebus except I drilled holes in the fleshborers of my termaguants. I just didnt get the time to sit down and get to work on the Hive Fleet. I did quite a few videos and you can check them out at http://www.youtube.com/user/grims40blazer or just check out my vids on the side bar. Next week I promise to get some things done!

Tyranid Inventory

Posted in

Yesterday I did an Inventory of the models I have assembled and unassembled. I felt this was necessary as I have broken down so many models that were poorly cleaned and assembled from off eBay. I also have the models done from Blue table painting that I am going to strip and redo. They failed to clean many mold lines and the paint job was too low a quality for me to live with for long. So After the breakdown I am left with the following.

Assembled: 20 spineguants, 20 termaguants, 12 Genestealers (ST+RC)

Left to strip/assemble/clean: 48 Hormaguants (24 regular 24 hyper), 18 ripper bases (17 regular 1 spinefist), 25 Genestealers (I need more 3 claw bits to do them all as planned), 4 lictors, 3 carnifexes, 3 hive tyrants, 3 ravengers, 1 broodlord, 1 biovore, 5 zoanthropes, 4 tyrant guard, 1 trygon, 16 spineguants, 18 termaguants, 27 Warriors (15 3rd ed 12 2nd ed), 10 Spore mines (4 frag, 3 toxin, 3 bioacid)

OK Wow! I feel somewhat depressed at all I have to still do. I have so many things do and the slow pace things are coming around sure don't help. I change my mind about what to equip my models that everything just gets postponed. I just have to get it all done slowly. Slow and steady wins the race right? When it is all finished I will be quite proud!!!! I hope to have rounded out and bought more by then also!
