YOU'VE GOT SOME FRONT !

Door that is ! LOL been busy working on the front entrance for my chapters monastery  and here is where I've got so far.


When I started this I had no real plan, it kind of evolved as I made it, but one thing I knew it needed to have was some more defence capabilities, so I added two sets of heavy bolters to help against troops, as the lascannons on the hawk would be better suited against vehicles and individual targets.


 I've always wanted to have a go at stained glass windows and thought this was the perfect project.


Still got the top to finish to fit the hawk, and some internal details to finish off, so hopefully I can have it all finished by next week, so until next time stay safe and have fun !

Cheers Dave

    1. Thank you Matt, always wanted to try stained glass windows, just wasn't sure of the technique, so would overthink it, this time I just tried different thicknesses of paint until I found what works

  3. Good bit of scratch building and some nice detailing.

    1. Thank you Joe, much appreciated. I sometimes make a drawing, but quite often just see where the bits take me. Having seen your buildings , you obviously have a very creative side to you

    1. Thank you Dai, was really nervous about trying them, but glad I pushed myself in the end, need to cast up a couple of bits from my range to finish off the roof, but shouldn't be to difficult

  9. Very cool. A kind of "Jabba's Palace" feeling front door, in a way!
