Floor foundation

For the last couple of days we have managed to fix the floor foundation, electricity and water connections.
We started by taking down the wall between the kitchen and the dining room:

We will put up a brick wall on the left from floor to ceiling and a half height brick wall plus cabinets on the right (seen from the kitchen to the dining room):

Crusader squad, shoulder pads

I decided to try to paint the shoulder pads of my Black Templar initiates. I have primed them all black so I went with a layering to make them white.
First layer of Astronomican Grey:

On top of that, a layer of bleeched bone:

Then, thre layers of Skull White, some drybrushed Codex Grey on the chest eagle and some edges highlghted with Codex Grey aswell:

Some orcsies

Put some more paint on the orcsies. Some bleeched bone on the horns, teeth and skulls. Tried out a wet palette this time, works really nice. The paint doesn't dry up, kind of makes it get a good ratio of water and paint too. You can find a nice tutorial on how to make one over at Massive Voodoo
I also put some sand on the bases, gonna paint it either green or brown and then add white football lines on some of them. Time will tell if it works out OK.

Weekend and some more

Ordered some new speaker-elements for my broken speakers (which broke in the wedding) and I got the last Friday. So me and Parisa removed the old ones and replaced them, so now the surround is back in the house :)
I also soldered some wiring for the amplifier for the subwoofer and tested it up but since it doesn't have a filter it gives a wee bit to much of the sound register. Dad had some old filter lying around so I guess I can grab that. It also needs some on-off switch, quite cumbersome to have to unplug it everytime you want to turn it off.

Have gotten a list of kitchen wares which we will order:
Microwave Husqvarna 4141 FX
Owen Husqvarna 7408 FX
Dishwasher AEG F404010VIL
Stove Whirpool AKM607
Fridge/Freezer LG side by side GW-B 207FSQK, 90 cm
Fan Gorenje DF610E

Been playing some Dawn of War 1 aswell, finished the first game, on to the second expansion (Winter Assault). Quite a nice little game, good way to get into the WH40k universe. Nice story and so, graphics are getting a bit out of date I guess but it doesn't really matter.

Furthermore I continued to base coat my Blood Bowl team, have some brown and bone to put on then it is time to wash them.

Kitchen plans

The plans for the kitchen are coming together.
We are aiming for a stainless steel sink, the rest of the top boards will probably be made from stone.The pictures are also missing a wall behind the oven which has to be put up and some solution for the corner behind the oven and next to the entrance.

The planned fridge.

Change of plans and some ball tossers

Haven't been painting for a while but some progress last night.
I've decided to go with a Black Templar army instead of Blood Angels so I covered up the dred.

Primed and tidied up four marines (Black Templar initiates to be)

I've also primed, put some skin color and metal on the chain mail/armor on a orc blitzer and a black orc for my orcy Blood Bowl team.

Furthermore I have primed and skinned four orc slugga boyz.

Next up for this bunch of minis is to be fully base coated and then some wash. I think I need to work on my camera technique and lighting when taking pictures as well.

Blood Angels Dreadnaught 2

Finally got some time and a mood for some painting.
Fixed up some details on the Dred (hoses, pipes, skulls and so on), so next step will be some washing.

Blood Angels Dreadnaught 1

My dred is coming to life, almost done with the base coating.
Got some metal parts and some hoses left to coat up, thinking of going blue for the hoses.

I also carved away the tactical markings on the right shoulder pads on some of my marines from the AOBR-box. Wasn't as difficult as i thought it would be, just a matter of taking it easy and having a sharp knife. Hopefully I will have time to base coat them tomorrow.
