The Sands of Istvaan 5 (4)

Progress continues to be a bit slow on this project (and the Star Scrapper project!) but I'm nearly there with this one. 

I put the finishing touches on the bunkers this week. They look a but more 'ravaged' now! Once the paint and washes dry ill get them varnished and that should be it.

There will be 3 more additions; a wrecked Rhino, Leman Russ, and Predator. I''ve made a start on the Predator. believe it or not, a mate of mine really struggled with this kit. The parts were badly warped but instead of calling up Forgeworld and asking for more parts, he tried to force it together. The results were....interesting! He asked me to try and save it, but sadly the damage was to bad.

So he said i could use it for the Istvaan terrain set! Happy days! Here's where i am with it at the moment.

Once the Rhino and Leman Russ are all wrecked up, the set will be complete!

  1. Agree - those bunkers look very cool. Very reminiscent of the old second and third ed 'how to make terrain' style hills and rocky outcrops. I wholeheartedly approve.

  2. Cheers guys.

    Yeah it is pretty throw back now I come to think of it! I did contemplate attacking them with a wire brush for a more 'natural' look, but the amount of mess that makes put me off completely!!
