Realm of Battle Sector Imperialis Work In Progress
This year I got myself the coolest birthday present I’ve ever gotten myself.
The day I moved in to my new place I decided to spring for the new Stormclaw Warhammer 40k set. I found a trusted seller on eBay was selling it as a rate and ordered it from them. The week it came out I received a message saying they didn’t get as much stock as expected and wouldn’t be able to send it. I could get a refund or use that money to buy something else. While cruising their page I found they were selling the new city scape, Sector Imperialis, at a reduced rate as well. So I applied my Stormclaw money to it and got a 330 table top scenery set for $158 dollars. It was great.
It has been a nice project and one I’ve been looking forward to. A large-scale painting project that can be easily customized and personalized.
I wasn’t quite sure where to start so I watched these videos and soldiered on:
I followed most of these recommendations the letter. I changed the ground color to Mournfang Brown and ran out of Skavenblight Dinge (go for four pots, I have used three there’s enough in the bottom of them for touchups and nothing else) so I used Stormvermin Fur around the Aquila sections.
I’m going to mix Nuln Oil and Drakenhof Nightshade instead of Athonian Camoshade to give it a dirty blue color instead of earthy green.
I’ve still got the bronze colors and touch ups to do on the basing of this painting but believe it or not this much work only took about 4 hours. It goes fast. I’m looking forward to finishing basing and I’m very eager to start detailing and working on the colors to see what happens. I’m going to take Duncan’s recommendation and try Nurgle’s Rot some of the sewers, and maybe some water effect in some of the other sewers.
I’ll post more of them as I go. It’ll start to match my NEW Imperial Guard army, which I’m starting in the next week!
In other news…check out the site in the next few weeks as there will be some new merchandise (Finally) I’ll post once the designs are done!
