Building a gameing table part: II

I got the supports in to the table top
Then build up the 2ed set of legs
Rounded off the trim so that it would look nice and keep little hands from catching splinters from the sharp edge if they were to slide them along the edge still much sanding to do but getting there.

This is the table as it sits now.

Building a gameing table part: I

Ok I should have documented this a bit better for the blog, but I am Time crunched to complete This project. My brother in law over at thewarhost Just bought his first house. So i was thinking seance he has the space now  I should build him a proper gaming table(what with me not willing to give up the one we built together years ago). Also I am trying to take into account for his 2 children who being smart and inquisitive as they are will want to help/play with daddy's toys. So the table needs to be a lot more sturdy then our old one that sits on saw horses.

The top is 1/4" plywood with a 4" tall trim of pine boards. Right now it is not as strong as i would like so that will have to be addressed in
 my next session with this project.

This is the first of two sets of legs. The plan is to make the table break down to get it out of the way when needed. It will also be upgradeable with this design so that if he ever gets around to painting enough of one army to warrant a 4' / 6' table or a 4'/8' table all I will have to do is build the top its self and it can sit on the current legs. But for now a 4'/4' will be big enough for the games we play.
He is most certainly a Quality over quantity style painter and on top of that he works insane amounts of hours. So I have time to get around to building him the larger top.

Rhino / vindicator / whirlwind part: II

I added in the rivets and finished a lot of little things. The whirlwind turret still needs the most work but the red needs a nice high light or extremely thin orange paint and the yellow needs a little something to pop it as well. but then it is on to make it damaged and dirty and calling it finished.

Rhino / vindicator / whirlwind part: I

This has been a work in progress all most from the start of this army but I never finished it. As you can see there are a lot of swappable parts so it will take a bit to finish them totally but then I have lots of options on how to run it so it will all most  all-wise going to be useful.

Khador Conquest part: III

I thought I should give any one who has not seen this model in person some prospective on how large the Khador Conquest is.

any way on to the actual painting pics.

As you can see I have not finished to much but between this and the landraider I am out of Khorne red so that will delay any real progress for a bit on both of them as my Mephiston red as also soon to give up the ghost. I may try painting the base up soon tho sense it is all white blue and gray

Adeptus Custodes landraider Part: III

 As i started to paint this project it struck me how much it still looked like a standard landraider and in general it was not ornamented enough. After much thought I decided to copy the shrine idea from Dave tailors army that was the inspiration for this small army in the first place but done my own way.  

This is what I came up with over the last few days of tinkering. I hope everyone likes it as much as I do.

Adeptus Custodes terminator part: III

It's finally all finished up. The silver scuff marks /edge highlights got a little harsh in places but I think he will make a fine addition to the team

Adeptus Custodes terminator part: II

 From mud man to bronze god.... ok perhaps not that far now he is far to bright and lacks interesting details.  
Not the best picture I admit but the armor has a lot more depth now. I still need to add layers to the red and paint in the details on the gun and such but this is all most done.
