Grymn Flyer WIP part 2


With all of our X-Wing minis painted and in no position to buy anymore right now, I decided to do a bit of work on my infinite backlog of projects. About halfway thru yet another Grymn mini, I had the typical 'SQUIRREL!' moment and switched to my Grymn flyer's base instead.

Yeah, I kinda like it!

I purchased a bag of these tiny little bricks from Secret Weapon Miniatures some ways back, and decided to try my hand at brick laying. I didn't want the (also SWM) force field generator sitting in the sand. Besides, I'm going to need some stairs for my vertically challenged Grymn to actually reach the buttons/monitors, lol.

Looks like I need to tidy up the displays on those monitors.

They're a bit fiddly to work with, but I got the hang of it. Luckily, I wanted it to look old, so the crooked lines are more a case of: 'working as intended' rather than 'fuck! I suck at this!' (though I'm sure a few of you will insist its the other way around...). The Red sand of the Grymn's bases will go into the nooks, crannies and around the edges to tie it all in with the rest of the army. I also need to rust up the generator like I did to my Grymn's antique heavy bolter.

All in good time though, for now I think it's coming along nicely!

Looks good! Not nearly as "grim" as I imagined... ;)

lol, no, its not all blood-stained as the heavy bolter was.

Yes it really did photograph fantastically. It is really that amazing in person. I'm kinda excited about seeing the end result of this one!
