Amera Terrain Unboxing

See that little circle on the bottom right of the top? That's a quarter...

Hoolllly crap! This is an unbelievable amount of terrain. I am so incredibly pleased with these pieces. The quality is really there. I even like the excess around all the edges. I don't know if it's plasticard, but it cuts like plasticard. It's just enough to be a good boundary, so none of that "Where is the boundary of the ruin?"

I almost couldn't get this all in the frame...

This is a fallen helicopter ship sort of thing.

This needs to be separated into three pieces.
This needs to be separated into four pieces.

Dreadnought cover save? Ooooh yeah.

Everything in a bag needs to be assembled. They're all medium/large buildings.

I'm soooo excited about all this. More to come after I separate the joined pieces and assemble the buildings. Then...PAINT! Just as a reminder, NOTHING here cost more than about $16. And it all came from this wonderful establishment.

So I bought some terrain...

...this much terrain.

It's all from Amera Plastic Mouldings. I've been eyeing there stuff for quite some time now. Just the sheer size of it all for the price...Nothing pictured below costs more than 9.95 GBP ($16.23). All those models? They're Space Marine size.

More to come when it arrives sometime towards the end of next week...

Metal Terminators into....Obliterators!!! (Part 1)

Hello all. A little while ago I got a box of really cheap metal Chaos Terminators on ebay. I was a little disappointed, because I hadn't realized they were metal at the time I bid. I really like metal models, but they're kind of a pain to convert relative to plastic ones.

Now that I've actually gone about it though, I'm kind of happy with the way they're working out. The only exception is the one that looks like a techmarine. It's going to take some clever greenstuffing to fix that...

All that said, this is phase 1. Phase 2 will be green stuff.

Group Shot

How do I make him not a tech marine?

My roommate thinks he looks like a Genestealer.
Bolter rack! 7 for Nurgle! (I actually just happened to have 7 loose bolters)

I'm going to try to model these to be more Plasma Cannon like and less bolter like.The back is going to have to connect to...something.

 Some random desktop shots and the Dreadnoughts I'm working on.

I really need to suck it up and do the trim on these guys. It's the only part I hate and the thing holding them back from being finished.

I don't know what to do with the guy on the left :(

I know I promised better pictures of the marines I posted last time, but I primed them and...I can just never get my camera to focus on primed models. Those will come sometime after I finish the second base coat and first wash. I love the guy covered in cables...he's my new favorite model :)

Some TERRIBLE pictures, but a preview of BETTER pictures to come :)

These pictures are actually a bit of god awful. They were my first round of test pictures with my new camera. Some of these models (especially the one with the cables everywhere) have actually come a long way. I'll get new pictures of those up soon.

Random base for no reason.
