Craftworld Saim-Hann update : Patience is a Virtue

But too much is procrastinating. Didn't get much work done on the vessels due to a hectic week . But patience is what you need when you're doing masking work. You need to make sure that all coatings have been given enough time to cure before applying the masks. Because if you don't, it'll peel off when you strip off the masking tapes.

And with that, i'm very happy with how every vessel have turned out. All lines are done and the fleet is beginning to look like a proud Wildhost fleet.


I'm particularly happy with how the command shi
p has turned out. Opposite colours and really showing that it's the lead vessel ;).

Next step is to paint the sails.

Craftworld Saim-Hann update

Now that the hobby juices is flowing, things are really starting to roll.

1. Base coated with fotress grey and then sprayed black on the stripes area.

2. Proceed to mask the area where i want the black stripes to be.
The way to go to get symmetrical lines are to cut and join them like i've done before applying to the model. That way you're sure to get perfect angles for all the ships. It's not hard work but not easy either. Results though are going to be worth it ;)


3. All masking is done except for the command dragonship which will have opposite colors; similar to my jetbike seer council. Tonite i'll apply another coat of fotress grey to get rid of the black colours before starting on the gorgeous blood red!!! Have i mentioned that i just love red??

ps: sorry about the quality of the pics. Taken with my handphone camera. Will buy a digi-cam after getting this month's pay.

Cheers all.

The Wild Host warps to Bangkok

Well i guess most of you already know this but to those who don't, i'm now based in Bangkok for the next 12 months. Its part of my company's Inter Company Transfer (ICT) program. I arrived here on the 2th of April and haven't done any hobbying since. Its been difficult to find the interest to start. My fault entirely.

But now that the spark is there i need to ride it all the way. While the iron is hot and all that. Plus i do need to get some new models done for the Legio birthday bash. And with
that i present to you.......

My modest hobby table which i really need to keep clean unless i want to end up paying for it when i end my term. I really really miss my hobby room in Malaysia...sigh. Anyways, as you can see, I've finally started to basecoat the eldar cruisers. Which for me is a huge step already. So let's hope i can keep the ball rolling.

And another thing, if any of you guys are planning on going to bangkok please give me a heads up :)

Craftworld Saim-Hann

The next project on the 'yet to be bought' hobby table are these craftworld eldar vessels. Its a 2K list with 3 dragonships, 5 wraithships n 8 shadowhunters. These are amazing models and captures the eldar look very nicely in my opinion. Of course i'm going to have it done in Saim-hann colours.

The dragonship is slightly larger than the wraithship but has only 1 sail on top.

The wraithship has 2 sails, 1 on top and another ant the bottom. Looks nicer me thinks.

The casting quality by GW is actually quite good. I do hope i can do them justice. Will be my entry for Legio's birthday bash and also for the gothicomp.
