New Objective Markers Part 2

So Rainy Day Games runs a monthly Warhammer 40K league and they make heavy use of objective markers both Tacical (1-6) as well as Eternal War (1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4).

I’ve 3D printed objective markers before but I wanted a more complete set so I designed and 3D printed out a set of 1-6 as well as an “R” for the relic and an additional 2 and 3 for missions that require them. Additionally I designed and 3D printed some 40mm bases for the 25mm markers to sit into.

You can’t really see what is going on with these as they aren’t painted yet.

Imperial Knights (and Sabres)

First things first. I’ve printed out some Sabre Defense platforms with my 3D printer

Next, I’ve put together four Imperial Knights for the next 1850pts tournament I am entering. I based their paint scheme on the Lannister armour from Game of Thrones.

Cracked Mud and Painted Death Korps

So I threw together some cracked mud bases for my Death Korps of Krieg.

  1. Paint a lumpy surface of Liquitex Resin Sand across the entire top of the base and let fully dry.
  2. Paint over the entire top of the lumpy surface with a dark color.
  3. Dump 3 FULL medium brush loads of Citadel Agrellan Earth onto the base and spread evenly. (This is something like 15 layers of paint all at once, do NOT scrimp on the paint here.)
  4. Using a heat gun on it’s low setting, slowly move the heat across the base until a “Jell-O Pudding”-skin forms.
  5. Once the skin forms, move the heat gun in and apply directly until the cracking you want is desired.
  6. Paint/dry-brush as desired.
  7. ???
  8. Profit!

Land Raider Update #thedailypaint

Got this done before getting to sleep last night. I think all that’s left are the muddy tracks and other dirt-slop up the sides of this beast.

Next comes the “ripped off side sponsors” debris that shows up when you remove weapons from the tank.
