Well the 10×10 didn’t go too well this month, after a good start we didn’t play a single game for the last week and a half, so we have only completed 4% of the challenge.
So we have 96 games still left to play, we must do better next month.
Horus Heresy Weekender Scenery
I have been putting my hobby budget mostly towards scenery for the Horus Heresy Weekender, simply because I want us to step up our game in terms of scenery from last time.
So I purchased a load of Wall of Martyrs scenery so we can make ourselves a defence line board, when combined with a couple of Imperial Bastions.
I have done a test piece to set out how the rest of the stuff is going to be painted, and I think it looks quite good. The painting method is a simple one I found on a blog a few years ago.
The scenery is primed black and the concrete sections are then dry brushed with Stormvermin Fur, followed by a dry brush with Administratum Grey, the metal is painted with Leadbeltcher which is then sloppily washed with Agrax Earthshade. The small aquillas are then dry brushed with Ceremite White.
The gold is Retributor Armour, washed with Reikland Fleshshade and dry brushed with Sigmarite. The earth is Mournfang Brown, washed with Nuln Oil and then dry brushed with Mournfang Brown and then dry brushed with Tau Sept Ocre.
The Cadian armour is painted Castellan Green, washed with Agrax Earthshade and then dry brushed with Nibblet Green, and the red canister is Mepheston Red, washed with Agrax Earthshade and dry brushed with Astorath Red.
The roof is painted Doombull Brown, washed with Agrax Earthshade, drybrushed with Squig Orange and the dry brushed with Leadbelcher.
Finally the bone is Zandri Dust, washed with Agrax Earthshade and then highlighted with Ushabti Bone.
It’s a very simple scheme and one that is very easy to replicate across the three Imperial Defence Lines and two Imperial Defence Emplacments that I still have to paint, and I might be adding a Firestorm Redoubt to that pile as well.
