The endless scarab army.
lol
Now I need to decide to leave it's back exposed, chop up the back plate and make it fit, or add the underbelly gun to the top.
I'm leaning toward #1, I kind of like it like this

And simple! Just flip him on his head and spin his joints like a marionette. Then pin the tail for safety because it has to be chopped to make new poses that don't look stupid.

The new spiritseer is nifty
The new LT is solidly meh
Are the marines multi part ones?
Also, speaking of Primaris LT's, I'm totally bummed they made the decision to make the Conquest special LT a dedicated Ultra...

Yea, i'm thinking so too. After seeing it on him, he looks naked without it
Also - I need to buy a jewler's saw ... shaving down these corners with an exacto is difficult ... and dangerous.

sooooooooo
I'm doing the thing
the 60l fish tank should arrive tomorrow
and I'm in the process of comissioning a well painted devastator squad thats supposed to be on AA duty
The 40k fish tank is happening!
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Sep 24 2018 20:26
Anti-Aqua duty?
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 24 2018 20:27
kind of
They're sposed to look like they're firing at flying xenos ;)
I even've got a bonsai tree that Ill cover up in moss so its gonna look like a real miniature tree again
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 24 2018 20:33
epic!! sound awesome :smile:
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 24 2018 20:33
small 4 part ruins, the tree and some real plants to keep dem fishies alive and the thing is filled up.
Gonna take a while till everything is ready though, bit its gonna be a neat lil living Diorama :D

Sep 24 2018 20:37
ofc DA ;)
I was thinking about skitarii too, but 10 man squads are more expensive to paint and a bit overkill numberwise

DA just strike me as the better choice because greenwing won't show any algae growth as much
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 24 2018 20:37
yeah, thats one thing.. a bit of algae on the ruins make them look more worn, thats fine
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Sep 24 2018 20:38
That is the most epic thing I've heard all day

tank should arrive tomorrow, so I can about setting it up and starting the cycling
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 24 2018 20:39
Yeah, greenwing with minimal white, make the metal more warlock/brass for a tarnished feel
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 24 2018 20:39
good idea, I need to add that to the instructions
use more brass than gold and more greys than whites
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 24 2018 20:39
oh, and go light on the superglue, anti-algae stuff messes with cyanoacrylate bonds
tbh you could ask whoever's doing the painting to paint under a fish light so that you get the right color tones
instead of washout
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 24 2018 20:40
it does? I mean superglue is used to fix plants to hardscapes... and I tend to not use much algicides. Hurts the plants as well
light will be a simple LED, so not that much different from "regular" light I'd wager
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 24 2018 20:42
depends, some incandescents are low on the blue
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Sep 24 2018 20:42
true, that can be fixed tho
spotlights are common in such a thing
Dirk Bachert

Sep 24 2018 20:56
https://www.dropbox.com/s/2r2252khymtfode/20180924_225203.jpg?dl=0 rough idea of the scape, actual size of the tank should be around that too. Backspace is reserved for some plant growth for the xenos to hide in
create some hills and mounds, a few rocks as rubble and done
might even put a plant on top of one ruin piece, anubias or something.. tho that is dangerous since i'D need to trim it and that stuff is sometimes pretty evil

I'd rather fear they'll ruin the diorama by nipping at the emperors chosen! :D
first idea was shrimps as tyranid look a like, but having them crawl around on them marines feeding was a bit... too disturbing of an image :D

I can imagine
if you wanted to get really carried away you could put a bubble pipe in one of the guns
