They serve no immediate gaming purpose, but I just had to assemble the awesome Minotaurs from Megalith Games' Godslayer range. They are great models. Dynamic, natural poses; excellent detail and character; and expert engineering, with very few parts to put together, excellent fits, and very few mold lines.
Of course, you can't see them very well here, since I have them upside down!
I'm trying an experiment here, which requires a bit of explanation. Note the container at the upper-left. There, you can see my preferred transport method in action. I don't trust foam, because I fear it will abrade the paint, so I prefer to magnetize my bases by adhering zinc washers or plates to the bottom of the base. Then I use containers and/or movement trays that have magnetic sheet on the bottom. I can fit more models in a given space. Unfortunately, I just learned the hard way that I still need to stuff in some cloth to cushion the models and prevent any shifting. Cojo now has a very noticeable scratch, thanks to some unexpected hard braking on the way over to game night.
When I glue round washers to the bottom of a slotted base, only the slot itself provides any surface area for the glue. For the 40mm bases, that presents way too much wobble. So I tried to think of a way to fill the base and provide more surface area.
Here, I've tried Liquitex modeling paste. I took this picture shortly after filling the bases with the paste and leveling it out with the side of the cardboard box that the models came in. Turns out that the modeling paste shrinks a little bit. Plus, while I knew this particular paste is flexible when it dries, I didn't expect it to be as soft as it turned out to be.
So I added a second layer and finished up the job. Next time, I'm going to try spackling compound. That will be a much cheaper material anyway. I didn't use it this time, since I was worried that it would crumble (which is why I figured the more expensive flexible paste would be worth it). Spackling compound may very well crumble, but it's worth a shot.
In any case, here are the minotaurs, threatening me to paint them!
Lastly, you'll notice in the first photo one of my latest acquisitions. A new release for Dystopian Wars -- a mercenary air fleet!
