Aaaaaah!

Buck

Stout-hearted adventurers defend their raft against the giant tentacle monster.

Almost a year ago I found these goofy octopus tentacles in a bin at a store and immediately decided they would be useful for gaming.

Silly Octopus Tentacles

I finally got around to mounting them to heavy washers so they would stand up.  I then used ModPodge to create some texturing on the bases.  Then four coats of paint in progressively lighter shades, and here they are.

Fending off the tentacles!

They are all the same shape, so I put some sticks inside a few to make them stand a little straighter, and I bent two and glued them.  This was to provide a little variety.

Using a pike to keep the tentacles at bay

Could this be the end?!

Yes.  Thanks for stopping by.

Labor Day Weekend Hobby Stuff

Buck

Last week I spent the evenings assembling a stack of 1:48 scale WWII and Star Wars kits.  Over the weekend I had a chance to finish them up and base spray them.  In addition to a reinforced platoon of US Marines and a handful of Fallschirmjaegers, you can see the weekend results in the picture above.  These vehicles are waiting for next weekend when I will break out the airbrush and some some camouflage and/or weathering.

The vehicles sprayed gray will merely get some highlighting and some weathering.  The German vehicles in desert yellow will get a full camouflage scheme.  The British Matildas have a unique camo scheme that I will try to reproduce.  The M-48s will probably just get a little weathering.

Most of the vehicles will be used in Combat Patrol.  The M-48s likely will be used against aliens, Godzilla, or giant ants using GASLIGHT.
