Two posts in one day! I have been busy…
About two weeks ago over the Xmas break my good friend Aaron of Forlorn Hope fame and I were having a bromantic night in watching Myth Busters and cutting out the seemingly endless sprues of the four Imperial Sectors I brought. The sprues would eventually be for the scenery stage of the Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape boards I was at that time painting.
As we were watching Myth Busters we noticed a massive toy crane in the back ground of their office. Aaron suggest that it would be cool to have a crane on one of the boards. I did too, so I started looking online for something similar and eventually found one that looked cool, so a few days ago I found myself in Toys r Us with a toy crane under my arm. They were having a 25% off sale at the time and it was only $35! So how could I resist. The thought of having a massive Adeptus Mechanics crane on one of the boards was too tempting and the scale of what was on offer seemed to suit perfectly for the heroic 28mm scale of 40k.
So heres what I ended up getting from Toys r Us for $35!. Thats me playing with it when I got it home btw.
Another detail shot of its base and first level gantry. I’m really happy with this piece. Its very big but I think it’ll add a good sense of scale and perspective to the rest of the boards once its put into context with them around it.
Here are my work in progress shots. Again, your feedback would be nice on whether or not I should include these.
Ok, thats it for this post.
I’m thrilled with this piece. It’s turned out much better than I could have ever imagined. The paint job I have in mind for it is going to be pretty awesome too… So hold fast for that one.
Thanks for dropping in
