Perils of the Warp

Greetings from the US of A. The jetlag is starting to slowly die down and it's time to start posting again. This is the carnage that was the result of traveling. Perils of the warp for sure! Luckily everything broke at places it was glued together so it was just a case of bringing out the glue and go to town. Also note that the plastic colored Captain has a little problem, yes, I put the darn flagpole on the wrong way. That had to be fixed too.

And this is the result, now they look dressed for success again :)

And in my excitement I started to paint the dreadnaught as well. Gonna take quite some time to finnish that bugger I'm suspecting. I think that the Ironclad will be painted in parts and then assembled. It's just a better way of doing things for me. Cleaner if nothing else.

Oh, and if you think the quality of the pictures are different it's because I just *had* to try out my new iPhone 3GS :) I will steal my wife's camera in the future as it surely will take better pictures being a camera only type of device, and I did brought my gorilla pod:)


  1. Shit happens ,sometimes in different colors and bits of stuff in it. At least they where easily fix able ,still dont know how you are able to paint so much yellow though its about as much of a pain in the ass to work with as red is. Still they are looking snazy.

    As for the dread I dont know how you could paint something that blocky without doing it in pieces.

  2. Painting yellow is indeed insane, and hard to get good for me as well. But I try :) Also makes it important to plan as it isn't easy to fix mistakes on top of yellow.

    Look at my latest post for some dread goodness in mid painting. I am sure that it will be far easier to paint the ironclad since I can paint it in pieces. Though it is hard to color match unless I paint each yellow layer on all pieces after each other.

    Makes me look forward to the space wolves. They are even suppose to be hard but few, which is perfect for painting:)
