One of the displays I've wanted to upgrade since bringing it out was the Death Match demo board, now what we've created is a one off, but not to say I still don't have intentions of making a 3D arena for sale later, when demand is high enough.

The first shot shows the overall layout, we've made half the arena and two separate beast enclosures to make it easy for running demo games.

This next shot shows the false door which is the gladiators entrance in detail, have also fixed in the commentator

The above pictures show the beast enclosure doors closed and open, yes they do slide.

Here you can see the beast loading doors from inside the enclosure and from the rear of the enclosure.

This last shot is the main stairwell up to the seating area. Next I want to build some crowd models but that will have to wait until after Salute.
That's the lot for today, so until next time have fun !

So about half way through the casting, and almost finished the displays, but still got a lot of sculpting that needs finishing for myself and a client, so hopefully will get it all done in time.
Now as I know quite a few won't be able to attend Salute I thought I'd show a couple of the displays that will be at the show. The first one used to be a cabinet display, but will now be part of our alien scenery board. A lot of the coloured resin on this one lights up.

This next one is a new display so you all get to see it first, the centre of the portal is achieved with a plasma disc behind blue acetate.

Got a few blogs to try and catch up on today, in between work so until next time have fun !

As there is only just over 5 weeks until Salute, I will be quiet  on the blogging front. This is due to 14 sheets of casting required to restock my stall, plus I would like to sort out my display cabinets as well to get them back to full working order.
Below is the customary map on where to find us, for those visiting the event, plus we are going to have balloons so you can spot us from anywhere in the hall .

Will try to keep up with your blog posts as time permits, so until next time have fun !

Painting time at the moment is minimal, but this weekend should see me having a little more time until April.
I have actually managed to paint the 3 new gladiators, the male Traventi is armed with a attack shield and mace flail.

The Female Traventi is armed with a standard sword and shield.

The Traventi in heavy armour is armed with twin buckler's.

This is the selection of weapons that the Traventi can use

Next week I will hopefully do a battle report with these new glads, so until next time have fun !

For Azazel's challenge this month I thought I'd clear some abandoned models, the gibbering horde will hopefully be part of my submission, but here is the main event, the Soulgrinder ! This is a defiler that has had the demon that powers it take over the chassis and morph into a more demonic form.

I first bought this model in the month of it's release, and then worked on it periodically for two months getting the conversion work I wanted done.

When the model got left it had been undercoated, metal areas drybrushed, and the skin tone base coloured. There it sat until this month.

As you can see from the pictures I made a base for the model and sunk it down in, as I thought with the weight and the small surface area of the feet it would sink into the ground.

You will also notice the Mawcannon firing a Phlegm attack, this was sculpted by me, and I have the other two shots to finish building, so depending what attack I've paid for I can show it on the model.

Here is a shot of the GW version so you can see how mine differs. Just a small post today, as I've got lesser demons to finish, so until next time have fun !
Cheers Dave
