Usually they say "break a leg" to actors, but never break a foot to modelers. Heal well and soon. ;)

Back in the Saddle Again

After being laid up with yet another bout with Covid, the worst one yet, these past few days have seen me in a flurry of industry where I managed to add quite a bit of detail to the upper works.

This first images of the superstructure shows the angular shaped stained glass window frames that decorate the bastions in groups or threes;

I made dozens of these basic decorations and they are used throughout the model in various sizes. Each one will ultimately be embellished with cut out paper 40k stained glass themes.

I may or may not cut these out and install lighting behind the frames but that is far down the road from where I am today.

The next images show the Gatling blaster mounted once again with the rear position of the gun mechanism lined up with the hull magazine. Amazingly it lines up with the proposed belt chain of projectiles even though I had not initially planned for this.

And another view for clarity....

Thanks for the reply,

Bastion Base Detail

Yeah I know; it looks like a step backwards but it took me a couple of days installing these stained glass window frames and the details thus far.

But now I can install the finer detail items such as layered armour, skulls and Aquilae, corner angles and tchotchkes. You'll see where I am going with this..

I've already decided I need to make two more building structures, rectories if you will' between the front and rear bastions which will really make the interior of the superstructure really POP!

But right now I am excited about how will these components have come out.

Naturally these will not be stacked like these but instead will serve as the corner bases for the superstructure.

I just thought it would be amusing to show them off before I install the really fun details.
