I managed to get all four Hormagaunts finished today, which was a bit of relief. Most of the medium miniatures for the diorama are now done. I feel like I am at least making some progress towards getting it finished. Two weeks today and it shall all be over. I am going to get it all done but I do know there is a long way to go yet.
Before I give an update on the ‘to do’ list for it, here are some shots of the Tyranids who will be harrassing the Ridiculous Six.
A few days ago, during a freak out, a friend suggested I made a list to organise my thoughts on where I am up to. It worked. I have it on a post it note next to my hobby desk. It looks a but like this:
Finish the base: Plaster it, texture it with sand, undercoat it, paint it.
Electronics within the tank, build the tank around it, paint the tank.
The Trigon and the Khorne berserker.
Small miniatures – the Nurgling, the Rippers, other little features.
Highlight it all.
After that, it should be done and dusted, competition ready. Honestly, I do not think I will win at all, I’m convinced I am not at the right level for it. I do like the challenge however and I am doing this to prove I can. No one else had electronics last year and I am more than surprised that this is something that hasn’t been explored more by others. It is surprisingly easy to get the parts and learn how to do it.
