Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming One and All

Hello everyone.  I would like to take a minute away from the usual 40k post to say thank you to everyone who has come to my little site and expressed interest in the projects I've put forth here.  There have definitely been times I've come close to setting the site aside, but I've always come back seeing the support of you all.  2011 has been a great year in which I've learned a lot about what I can pull off scratch building for Warhammer 40k (and what I need to work on!), and I look forward to seeing what I am able to do for 2012.

I'd also like to give a quick shout-out to the Santa Cruz Warhammer Honor Roll.  If you haven't seen the various honorees, you really should!  This is a fantastic site that does a great job highlighting some of the other great 40k (and other things) content out there.  Often times the great efforts bloggers put forth can get lost in the sea of blogs available.  This is a thank you to them, and a thank you to the other sites too numerous to name which spend a post each week or so covering so many other great sites.

Have yourselves a safe and happy holiday season, no matter what holiday you celebrate.

A Librarian Dreadnought Joins the Fray

Welcome back one and all to Scratchbuilt 40K!  The last few weeks I've been spending my free time away from Warhammer related ventures (as one friend calls playing Skyrim 'Chasing the dragon').  However, I have had the chance to put together and paint a Librarian Dreadnought for the Pride of the Emperor army.

This model's arms are removable and the waist is magnetized to allow the model to pivot.

I recreated the faces on the base using InstaMold and resin and adding it to the base.

I would rather have had the Force Weapon painted using the airbrush, but sadly that is put away as Wisconsin winters are not kind to airbrushing outside.  This, however, turned out better than I thought it would.

Well, that's it for this week.  I know it's not much of an update after 3 weeks of silence, but it's all I could get finished in that time.  Till next time, happy gaming!

No post this week

That's right.  Nadda.  Nothing.  Zilch.

Well, other than this.

Taking a week off 40k to play Skyrim to my heart's content.  Next week I'll have images of the Librarian Dreadnought WIP.
