Hi There.
I've come to a conclusion refering my scenery inspirations/delusions:
Concerning the Hydra-Flak-Emplacement, I've decided to favor a scratchbuilt variant.
Likewise missile silo and command bunker - my poor little sketchbook.
Fortunately, I could secure a pair of the original Forge World Gun-Emplacements
from ebay, so no future creative sprains there.
After over half a year gathering dust on the paint station I finally finished the second
Shas'ui and the Shas'vre of my XV-88 Broadside Team. Drones are next.

It's really helping a lot - especially to pool all your inspirations and ideas. :-?
I'll bring it up again in time when I'm approaching the next milestones. Please excuse the ('nearly') dense blackenings. :P

@Exzendar
Thanks Exzendar. Likewise, I´m really jealous about your cadre. :nice:

What material are you using for your terrain? I figure it's foam but more details would be interesting. It looks great and very Taros like.

You can find the whole extent of used materials in the first post:
Issendror wrote:Cork sheets (3-5mm / 0.12-0.2 in)
medium-density woodfiberboard (6mm / 0.024 in) - There are thinner, lighter ones but tend to bend
polystyrene wall panels (3-5mm / 0.12-0.2 in) - It´s insulation material you can find in nearly every
DIY store. In Europe and Germany you can get Depron-Sheets in various strengths or BASF-Styrodur-Panels.
polystyrene glue - For the larger surfaces (see "glue" above).
white glue/wood glue - (see "glue" above)
Sandpaper - (Grit size 150 and above / for Germans: 120) - Used to smoothen the edges of both,
mdf-boards and polystyrene panels.
Medium sand - (grain size 0,25-0,5mm / 0.010-0.020 in) I used fire-dried, quartz sand. Mostly
traceable in pet shops because it's appropriate for use in aquariums. Don't use sandbox appropriate sand - it's to
heterogeneous, dusty and polluted.
Box-Cutter - Cut, Chop, Cut ... for the bloo... the greater good.
high-strength fabric-tape - For edge-protection. (For Germans: Panzerband und Tesa-Produkte sehr
zu empfehlen)
Palette - To mix colours, white glue and water.
Brushes - 14mm / 0.55 in - Used to apply the colour-white-glue-mix onto the allready sanded boards.
and to paint the scenery pieces. 70mm / 2.76 in - Used to apply thinned white-glue and to drybrush all terrain and scenery
pieces.
Colour - Provided by my local DIY store - custom mix.

I'll adjust it gradually according to the project flow.
Sorry for the long answer pause

Sorry, my bad. I went to the top of the page and figured it was the beginning of the topic. Never thought to look for a first page and I've been following this topic for a while. I'll blame it on early morning.
Thanks for the answer and the topic. Keep up the good work.

Hi everyone,
I thought the Drones would become a quick paintjob. Well, 2 weeks of too much work later, they are done.
Milestone V accomplished, banzai.

Next up terrain, and it`s allready well-advanced. I'm working on details of the missile-silo,
the sculpting and casting of the flak-emplacement, and perimeter defences.
Even the command bunker got a first blueprint. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts. :)

Do you drybrush black or edge highlight?

That depends on the purpose, but I suppose your asking about the highlighting on the drones?
If it`s a miniature, i`m edge highligthing. Most terrain pieces, on the contrary, just receive a multiple drybrush treatment,
if they haven't some sort of important detail sections.

Yes, I was asking about drones because I face the same dilemma. Unfortunately your pictures are tiny so I couldn't see how highlght was done.

I'm deliberately keeping them small, so this log still remains read- and browseable.
I think for a mere demonstration of progress on a project this image size has to be sufficient.

To access the orginial images you can use the link to my Flickr-Gallery in my signatur/footnote. I hope this isn't to troulbesome. :fear:
