More Shadow War Terrain!

I don't know that this was what I'd call a "slow" week for me hobby-wise, but I feel like I didn't get much done - mostly because painting terrain usually doesn't involve a lot of fine detail work, I guess. I did manage to get two more of Game Workshop's new Shadow War kits painted up for my buddy Marky, and the whole set together looks pretty crackin', if I might say myself.

The whole kit and kaboodle all ready to go.
I'm pretty happy with how the whole thing ties together.
Spider Skull Cranes make everything better.
These kits really give you the opportunity to put those hazard striping skills to good use. Yay, art school!
I tried keeping a bunch of the elements separate so that we can mix and match our
The Void Shield Generator adds a nice snap of color.
Even elements on the sprue I didn't "use" can still make nice scatter terrain like these hatches and vents.

I'm really loving these kits in a way I didn't expect. They are really so versatile and just look amazing when done. I'm already planning to pick a few more.

Mixed Bag 7 - More Orks and a Void Shield Generator

In my excitement for the upcoming 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000 I've been spending a lot of time with 40k and I'm still kinda amazed at that. I've already shelled out my dosh for a pre-order of the new game and I'm eagerly awaiting it on the 17th of this month. In the meantime, I'm adding some more Boyz to my mobz and another Nob to the Nobz Mob.

Just 10 more Slugga boyz to either add to an existing unit or form a new one. I'll have to see the rules
before I decide.
Anuvva Nob fer da mob! I love Power Klaws. Luv 'em!

I also assembled and painted up a Void Shield Generator as part of a scenery deal for my buddy Marky. This thing was a LOT of work to assemble and was absolutely crawling with detail. Nuts. But I'm happy with the end result.

The finished Generator. This thing has so many detail on it that I really don't
envy the Eavy Metal painter that had to do the studio version.
Just a 3/4 shot. I think the green is a little more intense than I intended, but I can
live with it.

There are even a pair of poor dumb servitors built into this thing to keep it functioning.
Big Red Button of the AdMech. 
Even moar skullz!
And the Great Seal of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Don't
cross the Seal.
Or the streams.
Good advice in general.

And yes, I managed to build the kit so that the gears can still rotate.
