Nothing too much to report but I've done a few bits. I've had some bad luck trying to find a spray primer alternative to Games Workshop Chaos black. I tried a flat grey primer but it went on really wet and thick (lucky I did a test piece) and now I went for Krylon H2O latex spray....don't bother. I think it would be great for scenery undercoating as it doesn't melt polystyrene but the spray is much too spattery and droplet-like to work for a decent undercoat. I might try some Krylon flat black primer if I can find it but I may have to go back to GW black spray.
Any advice for a cheaper alternative would be appreciated.
Still I had enough in my GW can to prime my Grey Knight (to be) Land Raider and my two home made Ramshackle vehicles so I'll be starting them soon. I also mixed up a big (too big) batch of epoxy and made a real start on the Honour guard gluing.
The honour guard in all their partly assembled glory. I think they look pretty neat with the full unit size although I'm not sure about having three banners. Oh well, it'll look cool on the tabletop whatever.
Here you can see Marneus no.2 taking a lean up against the water jar while his epoxy sets.
And here is the current progress of Grey Man. The gun hasn't quite worked out how I would like but the hydraulic part isn't so bad. I think I'll have to work hard with the painting to really bring it out but with any luck this model will at be useable. It's been good practise in any case and I'll choose the next poses more carefully.
