Hello once again!
It's coming to the end of term, and as a teacher I've found myself very busy with little in the way of modeling time! However, to prove that this is still an on-going project, here's some of my latest work!
This has been a LONG process. I need too many books for the shelves for bitz websites to have enough, so I've been making them using thin plasticard. It takes a suprisingly long time to make 10-12 (which is what I tend to make as a batch), and it takes 17-24 to fill a shelf. And there are 9 shelves, 32 cubby holes, and so on.
So, a long haul piece of work. However, the room itself is finished, so can be painted, and each self glued in place as and when I finish one! It will be a few weeks before I can get shots of this (end of term, wedding and honeymoon will sort of fill that time...), but hopefully they'll come soon enough.
More pics available in my 3D Space Hulk Gallery.

I'm pleased to share a piece of work done for me by my friend Ali. She's a Space Wolf fan, and she agreed to help me paint my dead marine!
The image is my modelled version of an image from the Deathwing suppliment for the 1st edition of Space Hulk. However, I knew that I'd be completely unable to do this dead Space Wolf justice! Step in Ali!
Ali has done a great job, and I love the look of this! It's not finished yet (it still needs more battle damage, and perhaps a bit of weathering - Will have to do puppy eyes at Ali...).
Anyway, just a nice little update!

I've some extra free time this week, so I'm dedicating some time to painting the detailing on my 3D Space Hulk board.
This is the results of Monday's painting!
You can see all the pictures from Monday's painting in the Space Hulk Photo Gallery:

Ok, well, just so we all know this isn't a dead project...
The reason for the lack of updates is because the current step is a VERY long one, with little in the way of interesting updates!
However, this one does seem interesting enough to post.
I'm nearly finished painting the base colours onto the walls and floor of all the board sections.
It've done three layers of green, and four layers of grey to white on the floors. This will mean that very soon I have the whole of the 'mission 1' phase of the board painted to what I'll consider 'tabletop' standard. It'll look fine for playing games in at my LGW, but all the detail work and weathering will still need to be done.
Here's a close view for the work so far.
You can see that the fans, vents etc all still need doing. The walls and floor also need weathering, and all the decorative details need to be done.
An upcoming, and very silly, part of the project, will be the £80 board section... Simmilar to my cathedral section, but instead of having little statues, it will have two of the big SM statues instead. Will look spectacular. But be insanely expensive! Ah well!

Painting a Space Hulk
As promised, here's some of the painting WIP shots!
Still lots to do, of course, but it's great to be making a start!

I've been plodding along with this project, but it's still well underway!
On tuesday, I spend a good three hours and five cans of black spray undercoating all the board sections I have got finished so far. IT was VERY cold and damp - far from the ideal conditions, but eventually I got it all done! I've even begun adding the main colour scheme! Pics soon, I promise!
For the moment, however, I've added some new images to the Space Hulk Gallery, offering a glimpse of some of the interior detail I've done since my last batch of pics!
One of the reasons for the slow progress on my is that I'm also working on my genestealers! Am waiting with baited breath for my pre-ordered trygon so I can make a genestealer tyrgon! Anyway, here's a shot of a concept base I'm working on. I want to make a full squad of genestealers on a set of bases that can be placed together to make a fully enclosed tunnel, open at one end, so it looks as if they are charging down a corridor towards you. I want to make a presentation plinth that is hinged so the two sides of the 'corrdior' can open up to reveal the squad inside.
Anyway, below is the example I came up with.
As ever, more pics can be seen in my Tyranid gallery.
Of course, feel free to leave comments on any of the pics!

Space Hulk Campaign
Ma'Caellia Campaign - A fan-made Space Hulk campaign
This is the first part of a campaign I'm working on. I will release the appendices for this first half soon (perhaps tomorrow), which include alternative map layouts for some of the missions, including 2 set versions and unlimited set versions.
The book currently has the first 6 missions of the campaign, all based on those from the early 1990's PC game by EA. the maps aren't exactly the same, but are pretty close. There are also some special rules included (one of which will only be used in later missions).
I'd like some feedback on the book, if you don't mind! The missions I will keep more or less the same, as they are supposed to be close to those of the PC game, but I'd like some ideas on the presentation, clarity of rule/mission explanations and so on.
Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Decorating a Space Hulk
Today, I've mostly been decorating a Space Hulk.
I've been working on floors and wall panels, and discovering how long a haul this may be. It took a few hours to decorate just one section, although I wouldn't say I was working very quickly. So perhaps I can improve the speed somewhat!
However, I now have a few sections ready to paint, so I may get to do that sometime soon.
Anyway, photos, as ever in the Space Hulk Gallery.

My board is still underway. I'm adding a landing pad (for the Anphelion project side of things), and played my first public game of 40k on it.
Here's a sneak preview of what can be found on Page 2 of the Space Hulk Gallery!
