Well... The build of the Grain Elevator is 99% finished. I just have to acquire and place some railings and a pair of ladders and it is ready for paint! I will have a lot more time available to me this week as well, so I am hoping to get it done. Pictures of the final build are coming soon... :)

Today progress was Glacial, barrels were drilled and sand was glued to bases.

Top tip coat sand in a thinned layer of PVA after intial gluing, helps lock it in.

Starting to feel like my camera skills aren't keeping up with my actual painting skills. Got the boyz part of my threat all to this stage which I find the most tedious. Have a lot more fun adding the bright colours that mark the unit out. Should be done before the week is over. The deffkopters got their rotor blades snapped (again) so I have to fix them before continuing with the painting. I'm not that enthusiastic about them and if it weren't for this thread they'd probably stay forever at the back of my paint queue while I find more exciting things.

The plastic deffkoptas? I hear ya. I loved that model until it cane time to paint it, and then i got over it real quick. Not sure what the issue was, but i got no enjoyment out of it. Still haven't painted the full mob up.

Right. Pics of the Build, first one is "semi final" but shows the truck side of the elevator, while the second pic is the "final" on the rail side. Most of the scaffolding is held on with Magnets for easy transport, but also to paint.

Now to get it painted. As of now everything is primed, and I have actually painted the bins in their metallic colour and given them a "magic wash". :)

Finished the boyz mob, final photo in my threadNazgrub Wurrzag is also painted enough to count as done but like the warboss I'm going to keep him on hand in case I see any details I missed. Just the Deffkopters and buggy (which just needs the driver and gunner painting and for me to accept defeat on the vehicle itself)

As it's only the twentieth of the month and I'm in the green already, i've decided to add a bonus threat, which I've started working on today.

It's a conversion of a Gore Grunta into Gorbad Ironclaw, (as i've finally decided to bite the bullet and bought the AoS General's rulebook so that I can resurrect my Orc and Goblin army). I have a perfect round base to use as a base for the model and have added a long tusk and a broken tusk (from the dinosaur models I used to make my Big Squiigoths) as well as a decent Black Orc boss's double headed battleaxe and cloak and a bigger head  (also Black Orc) to the Gore Grunta model along with a shield and a couple of spears for Gorbad's Waaagh Banner.

I know this was in my...March's challange? But somehow with a moving in between has been impossible.

Still, let me post it here as it came from a previous challange.

I am claiming green for this threat. The boyz have gone into the paint shop, which officially ends the build phase. I will post some pics toward the end of the month as I am going to try to get some paint on this project before then.

I'm doing really well this month. Ive finished all my existing threats ....and I've also converted one of my boar boyz into a Savage orruk shaman on Boar, by changing his arms, making a cool Ju-Ju staff out of two banners and adding a small squig i had lying around for his Squiggly beastie. I also treated myself to an Orc Warboss box as it was going cheap. I've made up the Warboss on the boar with the banner (and a larger base) and made up the other warbosss you get in the kit on foot with shield and big axe. I havent gotten around to painting these yet, but there are still a few days left....

I'll try and get some pics of the shaman later

getting close to finishing this threat. Just detailing and highlighting (Also threw some paint at the trukks because I mixed up more rust colours than I needed)
