  1. I converted a model for a now-dead French sci-if game into a power loader autonomous bot. Plasticard forks replaced weapons, and I repainted it in Caterpillar yellow to give it an industrial equipment feel.
  2. I have painted a lot of mdf, and I can promise you all of the problems people have talked about here; blotchy coverage, paint soaking into the wood, and even little "hairs" appearing on the surface can all be fixed with two light coats of matte varnish before primering. Warm the can up like macattack suggest in a well ventilated area, and you won't have fuzzy results either.
  3. Antenociti's has great resign bases, especially that look like ship interiors. If you want to make your own, there is a lot of textures plasticard out there that you can use to make your own custom bases. It's a little time consuming but is worth it. Good luck.
  4. Pardulon has some interior room furniture. It is mostly post-apocalyptic and grungy, but it might work for you. Ainsty also has modern interior furniture. I have some of Antenociti's interior furniture, and the quality is excellent. Good luck.
  5. I use a toothpick to get a tiny bit of glue into the right place. Put a tiny bit of glue on the end of the toothpick, then use it to. Apply where needed. Toothpicks have become my go-to assembly tool.
  6. All of my lists seem to have at least one, and she is usually a star performer in early parts of the game, until she blows up.
  7. Shading mint help the buildings look a bit better. It really helps break up the big flat surfaces of the white walls. Just a bit of grey at the bottom of the building can really help. Weathering can help too. Rust and water streaks help add a lot of character.
  8. I use army painter matte varnish. Seems to work really well. I usually do two light coats, making sure to hit all of the cut edges of the MDF well.
  9. Use matte varnish to seal the wood so it doesn't soak up so much paint. It really helps. The buildings look great. Really nice job.
  10. Thanks for posting this. I got a nice nice discount!
  11. You get free shipping from Antenociti's for purchases over 50£ worldwide. You just have to sign up to get the shipping discount. Your buildings look spectacular. Love the stenciling that you've done.
  12. Love the detailing on the garage. Really looks great.
  13. For spray primer, I put the can in a warm bucket of water for about five minutes. It heats the paint and accelerant so they mix more readily. I also make sure to shake the can thoroughly, and then shake it a bit more, keeping the can inverted so that the pain will mix as much as it can. I also spray in a well ventilated area, and only do thin coats. In many cases, fuzzing is caused by the spray paint hitting particles (either paint vapor or dust) in the air, and latching on to it as it travels to your model. You MUST spray in clean air conditions, otherwise the models will end up fuzzy. Only spray for a short time, then let the air clear completely before doing a second coat. These tips have cut down on the times I have bad fuzzing to almost zero. Oh, and don't use Citadel spray paint. In my opinion, it is not good for models. Army painter is good, but some swear by krylon sandable primer, available at auto parts stores. Good luck, and I hope this has helped.
  14. This looks great. It could easily be a civilian vehicle in the urban sprawl, or a non-armored military vehicle on a base. Well done! I love that this is different from the Antenociti's Workshop one. I've ordered several from them, and will happily order several of this one. The more variety of vehicles on the road, the better.
  15. My Operation: Icestorm that I ordered from The War Store arrived today, here in Southern California. My initial look at the contents has me very, very happy. The models look great, with only a small hint of mold lines, much less than I would have expected from the large volume production run. The rules book look really well designed and of high quality. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase. It was worth the wait. Thanks Corvus, Belli, for not rushing the product and lowering quality.
