softly, softly catchee monkey

Work progresses painfully slowly.  I've only managed to lengthen the tentacles and slap some more green/greystuff on in an entire week.  I have many hours of sanding ahead of me which is giving me the fear.

Like... eggs or something

This is driving me nuts.  I'm on my 3rd iteration of the gas sacs, the tongue doesn't fit and I've forgotten how many times I had to re-position the Carnifex.  Its like doing a horrendous 3D jigsaw puzzle.  Except the pieces come from 3 different puzzles, you have to melt some of them to get them to fit and the last few must be placed whilst blindfolded.

Anatomy of a Drop Pod

This is turning into a labour of love.  I'm almost sorry I started, but the finished results will hopefully be worth it.  I wanted to model the inside of a Tyrannocyte complete with sleeping Carnifex.  This was to be my homage to Da Vinci's 'In Utero'.  My plucky defiance of the naysayers who hate the model, reckon its too fiddly to build and call it 'the floating pineapple'.

Painting the inside of Stormravens

Back in my home town, they used say that people who didn't want to come off the dole would write their job description as "Painter, Cupboards, Inside of".  The idea being that their skill set was such a complete waste of time that no one would ever employ them.
