Space Zombie Barrier

This isn't my work but the work of a highly skilled guy by the name of Neil over at Leave Nothing Unpainted

I was so impressed, I'm re-blogging it here.

"Necron Aegis Defense Line

With the new version of Warhammer 40k allowing fortifications to be bought as part of your army, I wanted to try and make something for my necrons (given that the only kit available is for the Imperial Armies). So this is my version of the Aegis Defense Line with a necron theme.




There are two main sub components, a short and a long barricade. The short has two vanes/spars and the long has four.

The barricades are made from laser-cut cardboard that is 1.3mm thick which sandwiches a layer of clear perspex that is 1.5mm thick. The perspex was also laser cut.

The perspex was spraypainted with a thin coat of gloss green as I cannot get tinted perspex at that thickness.

Everything was painted before assembly.

There are three sets of the long/short barricades and these can be stacked to make a sizable defensive perimeter.

The necron glyphs are repeated on the back of the piece in a mirror of the front. The translucent green is supposed to represent an energy field rather than a physical material, with the little pieces being suspended in it.

He now has them and some very cool base toppers available for sale.


For about $20 US, it is a great deal ans certainly beats using an Imperial Aegis Defense Line for your Necrons.

If these sell well, could we see eldar and other ones too?

  1. Hi mate
    These have sold well :) Given that I am a completely unknown entity and in Seffrika to boot, I didn't think anyone would be willing to take the leap. I made up ten and eight have been sold so I have made up another five.

    Other races are in development including the "space elves". Thanks for posting them here!

Building our Ruined Building Part 3

Welcome back,  we are ready to add some battle damage to our perfectly rectangular wall sections and get our ruined building finished up.

My tools used were a cordless drill with a 3/8" (10mm) bit and a pair of diagonal wire cutters.  Before I began, I coated all of the foam in PVA glue and a liberal dusting of sand.  I also coated the upper floors to add some texture.  I also used many pieces of cut up sprue to fill in the gaps where it might not be obvious that models were not supposed to be placed in that spot.  I took some pieces of sprue and used them to brace the upper floors.  Although the for sale sign was good thick plastic, it still flexed enough to concern me.  I used super glue to hold the sprue in place.  In the below view you can see the post added to support both levels.  A wire rope with knots was added for decoration.

You can see how the walls not have jagged edges and there are holes from shells drilled though the walls.  The amount of destruction is really a ma…

A look at some Citadel Paints

I was using some of my paints today and noticed something very interesting about the new paint range.  Not all of the pots are made equal.

If you look at #6, inside the blue circle is a cap hold upon device that uses friction to hold the cap open.  Its like a little rubber ramp.  Number 7, bought from the same store doesn't have it.  I bought 4 paints just recently and two had them and two didn't.  And it was random, I bought 2 base colors and only one had the ramp.  The layer I bought had one, but the technical primer did not.

Citadel Piants have 2 problems that I'll discuss:

1. A problem that arises with all of these paints is that when shaken up, a fair amount of paint sticks to the lid and then drips.  Where it drips depends on the cap design.  All of these caps are designed with an inner protrusion that is meant to direct the cap paint back into the bottle.  Lets look at them by type:
The inner protrusion fits snugly against the cap, so almost all of the paint drains …

A Ruined Manufactorum

It is finished.  Or wrecked?  Maybe completely wrecked?  Anyway, I have put enough details, paint etc on the second mega-terrain tile that it is certainly in playable condition.  Because I'm sure you want to get to the pictures, here they are:
