#489592 Nerd Stuff for Nerds

Posted by Nightstalker on 10 February 2021 - 02:13 PM

So...

 

Been redoing my room a bit to house a bunch of nerdy stuff. Kinda nice taking back my space ever since I've had to deal with bedbug paranoia that ended maybe about 4 years ago. It has kinda gotten out of hand now though...

It started with an overhaul to my gaming PC setup. Should have taken a new picture, but holy crap is it pretty with all the lights!

And then some very terrible people got me into searching for figurines of some of favorite video game characters and anime characters (one of you is on this forum and you know who you are hahaha). The setup looked so good to me, I had to get a shelf for my Silver Paladins, which are still growing.

 

I'm still expecting two more items for the Destiny shelf and one item for the anime shelf. Those include The First Curse, an Iron Saga Ghost, and Ishtar from Fate Grand Order.

 

So yeah! That's something I've been up to! I'd get LEGO display cabinets, but I've got way too much stuff. Maybe one day though...

Been rummaging through my Brickforge goods and found a bunch of torso plates and waist cloths lying around. Remembering that I bought those on a sale, I decided to create 25 Wintershield Axemen. Don't worry, you'll find a couple of ladies in their number. The Viking helmet has been out of stock on Brickforge, so I went with the crossbowman helmet from BrickWarriors. The axes are also from BrickWarriors as well.

 

Rather satisfied with how these units turned out. Got another set currently in the works too! The actual minifigs are done (another unit of 10), but the mounts have not been ordered yet.

 

That's all for now!

I'll have to give these a watch a bit later. They look interesting!

I never thought this day would come. I really thought 2020 would take this from me, but jokes on it! My last order got in on December 24th!

 

So, let's get this one started!

 

dsc01764.jpg

 

Back in 2013, I made this bad boy. It's the Dwarven "Fury" Siege Tank for my dwarf army. Well, I kept it for a long time. I always had plans to revisit this MOC because, well... it really sucks. I mean, it's open top, the mechanics are really bad, and overall never quite matched my ideal siege tank. So, I decided to go back to my initial inspiration:

 

s-l400.jpg

 

 

Grabbing this picture and a better idea of how to proceed, I darted off to Stud.io, and slaved away to bring you...

The Dwarven "Fury" Siege Tank 2.0

 

Bigger, badder, and just overall more pleasing to me, I'm quite proud of this one.

 

50771635653_f62accc41f_z.jpg

 

Compared to 1.0, this version features a much better system for fuel generation. It's easily accessible, and allows for additional tools to be stored. The only downside, as with all of the dwarven artillery, the tank has its inherent flaws. While refueling is easy, it also creates a HUGE weak spot to be exploited.

 

50771635623_fc4ffbfeae_z.jpg

 

Correct faction colors have also been added! The army of Faermoore is dark red and red, not blue and gold. Though the cannon is smaller, the overall turret is just a massive upgrade. I even added a spyglass and a cloth roll for a little bit of details. A hatch was also added for easy access.

 

50772499757_4339f60e38_z.jpg

 

The front is no longer a terrible ram, but rather a sloped, spiked, front plate. The grills are windows, allowing the driver to see outside. As for the two red 1x3 plates, let's just say some decals are intended to go there.

 

50772383391_40d01d7423_z.jpg

 

OH! And MOC'ing features have also been added! Steam can come from the steam tank and the cannon can actually be shown shooting. Additionally, trans-clear pieces can be added to show ammo flying across the field. So that's another bonus!

 

50772499732_2f05b89f85_z.jpg

 

Following my earlier system of 3-5-7 (three heavy, five medium, and seven light), three of these tanks were made to further the war effort.

 

And that's all for now! Just happy to have crossed this off of my "To-Do" List for 2020.

 

Hope you all enjoyed!

 

As always,

C&C is welcome and appreciated!

Third progress update! Bodies have all been completed. Some small changes were made to the front slope just to give it more support, but everything worked out decently!
 
List
- 3x Steam Tanks (DONE)
- 3x 4-Spiked Wheels (DONE)
- 3x Turret
- 3x Body (DONE)
 
Turret pieces are being ordered as this is being written. At this point, I'm close... oh, so very close.

That's a big guard!

 

I really like all of the little details you manage to cram into your characters.

Eradicators are done! These Gravis armored, Melta wielding Astartes are even decaled! I'll be moving to the Assault Intercessors next, seeing as how they're the last unit from the Indomitus box that will be added to 2nd Company. The rest of them are 1st Company Veterans and what not.

 

More to come later though!

Posted by Nightstalker on 18 November 2020 - 09:11 AM

Update time!

 

The wheels are done! No pictures because they are literally just 12 wheels with spikes on them.

 

List
- 3x Steam Tanks (DONE)
- 3x 4-Spiked Wheels (DONE)
- 3x Turret
- 3x Body (In progress)
 
As you can tell from the list above, the body is next. I was going to go for the turret, but decided that the biggest chunk should probably be taken care of next. Five orders have been placed for the parts to make it happen. They'll probably be here in the next couple of weeks, but progress is being made. Once the parts are in, I'll post a set of pictures with everything combined, minus the turret.
 
Getting closer and closer...

Back at it again with the WH40K! This time I present a Primaris Techmarine! Not gonna lie, techmarines have always been my favorite type of marine. Took a solid 2-weeks to paint him, just because I wanted to take my time and make him look good. The shoulder decal is off ever so slightly, but I at least nailed the knee decal. Seriously, waterslide decals are kind of a pain in the butt to get right. Either way, I really like the gear assortment and was super stoked when they announced this model!

 

Anyways, that's all for now. I'll be back to painting real soon, seeing as how my Indomitus box got in: 

8da804eb-indomitus-box.jpg

 

I'll be focusing on the space marine half only, just because I kinda don't care about the Necrons (just like the Death Guard, except they really stink... like literally, look them up). Once this box has been dealt with, I'm highly considering investing in a tank.

 

We'll see...

First progress update! Steam tanks are done for all three vehicles! You'll notice that the reddish brown 1x4 isn't present. Well, turns out that it doesn't fit. Because of this, the part was removed and instead the technic pins underneath were just covered by the 1x1 flat silver, round tiles. 

 

List

- 3x Steam Tanks (DONE)

- 3x 4-Spiked Wheels (In progress)

- 3x Turret

- 3x Body

 

As far as the next steps go, the wheels are actually in pretty good shape. Thankfully, I have eight wheels, which means I only needed four. 1x1 sloped spikes were ordered in bulk, simply because I'm going to need them on both the body and the turret. With any luck, I should have the wheels done this next week when the orders arrive.
