So, work has started (well it started a while ago to tell the truth) on the G3 demo game for this year's convention circuit up here in Scotland, and with rules being written, figures being painted and all other sorts of things, it's fallen to me to do the scenery painting.
To tell the truth I volunteered for it. Not only did I want to help out, I got an airbrush for Christmas, and this seemed like the perfect thing to get some time in, hone my skills and what not. I even decided to order some airbrush paint.
So after ordering the paint, at the start of FEBRUARY!!! and it not arriving, despite it being dispatched twice, I decided to just use thinner and regular paint. However, it was not to be, as the white wouldn't thin, instead it just clumped up into some horrible mass, that wouldn't do anything, let alone go through an airbrush. So I ordered more paint, from a different company, and lo and behold, they actually sent it to me, and it arrived and everything.
So all this meant, that over the weekend, I finally got started on the scenery.
So I've so far got two of the longer habitat buildings painted, and awaiting random sci-fi shapes, doors and what not. The fine details. The small habitat building has received it's random sci-fi shapes, though there's been a little bit of bleed through, so that shall be fixed.
I need to do one of the larger habitat buildings, one of the industrial pods, and a silo. Hopefully more progress shall be made over the Easter weekend, as I need to crack on with it. I shall post more pics later in the future, rather than these hastily grabbed snaps, which were quickly taken so I could get approval from the rest of the committee, to ensure they were happy with them.
Hope you like them. Between these, and everything else we've got planned, it should be another good looking board, and hopefully take us home a few prizes again.
Thanks for looking.
