And so it begins - NOCF 2015
Over the next few months I'll be ramping up the content here about the 2015 efforts for the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation Army Raffles.
This year we have five different armies/collections planned and underway. There are:
• Flames Of War - a Polish Army (including train).
• Malifaux - close to 70 models including a variety of Masters, meaning that this collection could be a great seed for a club about to get into Halifax.
• 40K - Novamarines, a massive collection is underway.
And the two armies that I'm involved in directing are based on a story by Gav Thorpe:
• Alaitoc Eldar
• Sons Of Orar Space Marines
As you might be able to guess, I'm painting up the drop pods for the Sons Of Orar force.
On Sunday it was nice enough (finally) to be able to sit out on my front porch so, while my wife worked in the garden and my daughters played on the sidewalk, I sat and clipped out all the parts for the three pods. There are a LOT of parts in this kit, and most of them are in multiples of five (which becomes fifteen across three kits!)
I takes a lot of scraping to clean the mold lines on all of those parts.
I'm thinking it might be of interest to do a bit of a "here's how I do drop pods" kind of tutorial. Would you be interested? Let me know if you would in the comments below.
And be ready for many more posts on this subject : )
