Something a little more recent than those Rogue Trader Orks this morning. This …sewer vent(?) comes from the 40k Urban Conquest boxed set, which comes with some campaign rules for 40k as well as a sprue of terrain, which I dutifully clipped off the sprue, cleaned off the mold lines, sprayed this piece, and duly lost the rest of the kit into some tub or another somewhere. This thing, meanwhile sat around on the painting desk for most of that time with very little done on it. (Sprayed black, sprayed dark metal, basically). So as is often the case, I finally picked the thing off and made myself finish the damned thing.
It wasn’t so bad to finish off. The weatheroing powder seems to have come up a little harsher than I planned, though it’s looking a little messier here than in hand, as I want it to have a nice dusty and worn look so that it plays nice on a variety of table surfaces, I’m still good with it.
It’s a nice little piece, really. I’ve got a fair bit of smaller pieces of scenery that I need to complete before I crack onto any more of the ones from this set. As much as I’d like to get onto more of them, there’s a ton of other stuff to get done first.
Here’s a scale pic of it alongside yesterday’s Orks. Old-school 40k alongside new-school 40k! Works pretty well in my books!
