Apparently, people like a good rant. My last post almost broke my one day page hit record set way back when I won Lo's contest to design her blog banner. 25 comments on one post is a record for this blog, though admittedly not all of them were serious comments...
So sorry to let you folks down, but as you can see, all that I have this time around are the WIP pics of my WHFB watchtower.
WHFB is at about the bottom of my gaming priority list, which explains why I'm painting terrain for it, right?
I still have yet to add the battlements to the top level as they will need to be painted before assembly which will be far easier than painting them after its been assembled. As such the roof piece is not yet glued in place. Plus there are the gubbins to add, though I'm not going to overboard and add all of them like the picture on the box. GW knows how to over do it, that's for sure. Sometimes simpler is better, especially in poor and impoverished Stirland.
stolen Space Wolves Rhino, only just one color this time. When painting the green onto the roof which was primed brown, I opted not to fully cover the primer to give it a more worn look, and then did the same with the yellow over that.
The 'L' signifies that this tower is part of Leichburg's defense cordon. True, only the watchtower garrison and whatever monster swoops down to rain a fiery death upon them will see it, but it looks pretty good in my book.
