    So bunked off work for half to have trial of homemade transfers and I'm pleased with the result, the lettering in blue really works on the red background I think, what do you guys reckon???

    Mrnon,

    Your transfers are quite subtle and that makes them work.

    Cheers,

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    So nearly 2 months have passed and finallly got back to asking some models. Had a good day building a scenic peice for my space port dio, anti aircraft defence tower utilising good old pringles tube as the main column with the Icarus storm cannon array from the stalker kit placed on top. Ladders for the mechanicus sector kit will be used down the side along with the usual bits box raiding, cabling and scratch fine detail. hoping it won't be 2 months till my next post

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    Thanks Sdkfz

    Carefully!!!!

    think grey/green for the column, with plenty of rust streaks, the guns will probably be red or blue, undecided at present, may just go with the same colour through out.

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    Think having the guns in another color would look better, but thats just me

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    Quick update,
    So have decided to go with red for the Icarus array along with gun metal and mechanicus grey, base coats mostly done and will be moving onto washes and weathering when I get a chance. Couple of quick shots of progress with the main column well on the way and only needing a dry brush of leadbelcher or equivalent over the ladder rungs to give it a used feel,

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    Thats looking mighty fine, Mate
    Looks like it was the right decision going for red guns, looks great IMO.

    Like how youve added the rivets to follow the twist in the cardboard of the can.

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    You could even use some of the terrain for the upcoming Necromunda release. Just build a cap to hide the Icarus...like a smoke stack top that would just drop down on top. (If you plan to play Necromunda of course)

    Cheers,

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    Cheers both, glad the rivet pattern stood out.

    my wife ( of all people ) said it lacked something, and needed something else to break up the column surface. Have picked myself up of the floor from her comment I began working on a platform and round door, added a hand rail for the overall effect and just need to blend it in with the rest now. Also painted some of the finer detail and weathered the guns
