Fabric is something I’ve never used but have been wanting to experiment with for quite a while.
I decided to give my new Hatebreed (Mostly Nid with a touch of human) standard bearer/shaman type guy a cloak. I wanted the hood to be partially pulled away from his face.
I’m quite pleased with my first attempt with fabric.
It was a little tricky to get the positioning right but a bit of poking with the scalpel helped.
I stiffened the fabric with watered down PVA.
Next I built a leader for the Hatebreed. I call him Lozinak Roth
He had to look leader-ish but I also wanted him to look tough and gnarled.
Note the two right hands. One holding a walking stick and one holding a blaster.
He’s one of my favourite builds for this army so far.
Good bloody fun.
As far as momentum for this project it’s still, very much, in the high zone. Feeling quite motivated and pumped although this last week has been quite busy so didn’t do anything until today.
The next five to six weeks will be quite busy too by the looks of things but I will do what I can. Chip away on it here and there.
Today I also went to House Of War, a games and model shop not too far away from where I live. Wow what a shop. Even though it’s been there for five years it was my first visit. I frequent the GW shop down the road but today, with my youngest daughter, I decided to give it a go. It’s so cool and full to the brim with miniature goodness. My youngest (nearly six years old) daughter wants to get into model painting so we bought three models from the “Bones” range. We’ve base coated one of them so I might have the results for you in the next few days. She liked the shop too but then needed to wee so we had to leave haha.
I got chatting to the proprietor, who was a lovely bloke, and he told me all about Song Of Ice and Fire (game of thrones miniature game) and showed me some miniatures. They’re amazing so guess what’s on the horizon for me? Haha. NOT YET THOUGH DAMMIT!!!!!!!!
Im sticking with Nids.
The Fly On The Wall Podcast, which I co-host is plodding along quite well and we’ve had over 500 listens.
If you’re interested here’s the link to our most recent episode which was a SPOOKY episode in which we chatted about spooky and creepy things as well as visited a cemetery and told some personal ghost stories.
In this weeks episode, episode 14, we will be chatting about my humble little blog and the hobby. It will also feature none other than Mark Morin from
So have a listen guys and feel free to offer advise or suggest topics etc.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and get those creative juices flowing.
