Yeah it's not stop the presses moment. I'd keep going forward and loop back if you need a break.

What's next? :)

I have painted the castle, gave it black wash twice, used multiple colours before applying another grey drybrush.
Now I just really want to highlight with a very light grey or even bone or white the whole thing. And finally paint the woodwork.
At the moment I also started to apply colours to the house, windmilll, outhouses and barn houses.... and painting the two forge world towers ...

After that I need to start painting more details on all the siege equipment.... I hope to finish all that before I start a new job Nov. 1st.. (I have two days off at the end of the month)....

Sooo I am playing around with the early stages of a Marienburg Landship... Pictures are bad as always and the full resolution below are somewhat better, but not much..

It is made first I did a wire frame. Then I filled it with greenstuff to create the shape, which by the way is not perfect. And then I used plastic strips that sealed some plastic containers cut in pieces to fit the main hull to look like wooden planks.
I have prepared some bitz incl. chopping up a steam tank and will continue with cannons and a captains quarters box and all that.. a lookout spot as well I think...

Another progress report. It is a bit crude, but this is the best I can do...
Next steps are, I want to add a sail, possibly a ladder or two and some guns sticking out of the round windows. I won't add crew before I have painted it up, but I may add some more steam engine mechanics... And of course it need a steering wheel.

Sooo much to do, huh?

What do you guys think. Should I remove the steam tank top in front of the ship and replace it with another top/house like the one in the back of the ship? I am thinking a rectangular "house" to give the ship edge.
I am worrying that the steam tank top seems out of place... thoughts? Input needed!

I will probably spray paint it this weekend...

Charm on wheels. Love the steamtankbit. However, I see what you mean. The rest of the ship feels more crude. I suppose it will depend on the paintjob. That could blend it all in.

How detailed do you want to go with this thing? Is this as far as you think you will go, or are you adding stuff like a d ladder up to the command deck, and other smaler details such as ropes and chains, maybe an anchor or two. It's hard to see much with the size of the picture, but i do think from what i can tell that the steamtank piece is out of place. Perhaps make a deck on the front with a catapult or cannon on a lazy susan style thing on he deck. The piece at the top of the mast looks out of place, i think you may need a crows nest of some kind. The piece would like better at the top of the smoke stack sticking out the back of the ship. Looks pretty damn good though man, not trying to bash just trying to give you some things to think about as thats what you asked for. Hope i was able to help.

Thanks for input guys. I have left the steam tank (still undecided) for now...
I did however work on a lot this evening.... here is the result.. I added a steering wheel, anchor, ladders, cannon barrels in the port holes, some more steam engine shenanigans, som mast bars to hold the canvas sail and few more details here and there... the captain is not glued on the ship and neither is the dwarf spotter (I picked him because I imagine Marienburg to use mercenary dwarfs and he does sport a nice monocular piece)....

I hope you enjoy it... Input still welcome!

I will paint it soon and will try to take better pictures after. While the whole thing is a bit uneven here and there these pics doesn't do it justice... Not perfect model by any means but I like it so much more when I look at it compared to these pictures... white and metal stuff and flash just looks meh and the it looks even messier than it does in reality, I think.... oh well..

Post subject:  Re: The End Times are getting nearer !!!!

I think I shall spray paint it tonight... The sail and crew will be added when the whole thing is finished painted... unless I change my mind and remove the steam tank turret ...

Ironically I have spent more time on this than I have on my castle or my citadel gameboard for example...
