Hammer Time! (Part 2)

This must be some kind of record... it's only mid-February and I've almost finished three Christmas present projects already! The 6mm FUBAR! army is painted, the fleet-scale Star Wars reinforcements are done, and now my 28mm Hammer's Slammers blowers from Old Crow are all-but-completed too.

Work in progress - some weathering on hull and chipping on the skirts

Badab Black washes on hull


Above, the almost-finished blowers. I weathered the hulls some more with GW Badab Black and Gryphonne Sepia washes, and applied decals (custom-made for me by Sparetime Hobbies while I waited yesterday - thanks to Pete and to Conscript Kevin H for the tip!) to the skirts, then proceeded to weather the bejeezus out of them... mainly with a "chipping" technique and mud brybrushes.



I think they came out OK, all I'm waiting for now are the Lion Rampant decals from Ginfritter's Gnomish Workshop so I can complete the Slammers livery. Oh, and I have to paint the commander for "D16". Once that's done it's "look out Gunschwarm" when FuturKom's hired guns roll out...

These look awesome, granoo!

Those blowers look spectacular! I've always thought they look a bit too "flat" but the added stowage takes care of that little problem. Where is it from by the way? FoW stuff?

Just might have to get a couple of my own. :)

Thanks guys! Martin, these are the 25mm blowers - they come with the stowage right from Old Crow. The turret bustle racks are PE brass (also included) and the stowage bits are one-piece castings. The large rolled tarps are from Forgeworld.

I love the weathering on them, and the stenciled markings.

I love the shiny metal effect. Very nice. And the blowers look fantastic too.

Those do look pretty sweet! I'm guessing Pete is going to be getting a lot more business from us in the future! ;-)
