[WH40K] Powering up the Haemotrope Reactors!

Fuelled with the blood of martyrs…

I totally fell in love with those reactors in the first place, so I ordered a box. The intention was to combine them with my Promethium Relay Pipes. GW said they would be perfectly compatible and I wanted to see, if that is the truth ๐Ÿ™‚

After one night of cutting out plastic pieces out of their frames and having no plastic glue at hand (shame on me). I got another night assembling my new stuff. I also had a box of 40K containers and there is a lot of stuff included!!

The size of the reactors
Before I got my hands on the reactors I searched the web and nobody said something about the size of those reactors! That’s why I will provide some images to give you an idea of how big they are.
A reactor is about 4.5 inches (11cm) tall and nearly 4,5 inches (11cm) wide and 2 inches (5cm) thick. I also took some pictures with miniatures. I think they will do great on the field!

Those reactors are huge!

The compatibility with the Promethium Relay Pipelines
In the first place I thought… uhh, this won’t fit! But then I saw it. They fit perfectly. A reactor has three possible conection points for a pipe and it looks great!
In the pictures you can see the difference between the two in the color. My reactors have a dark grey plastic color and the pipes are in light grey.

The REactors fit perfectly to the relay pipelines!

Current state of work
Until now I have one generator finished for painting. The other pieces are still unfinished. Here are some impressions.

For about two years I got some pieces of terrain for Warhammer Fantasy laying around wating to get painted. But I didn’t find the right colour shemes.

I wanted that the tower looks like if it is made of old stone. In order to do that I painted the watchtower with Steel Legion Drab and washed it with Nuln Oil. After that I brushed the tower with Codex Grey and finally with Terminatus Stone. I painted the whole tower in this way. The wooden floor was painted with a layer of Rhinox Brown, followed by a mix of Rhinox Brown and Kommando Khaki and pure Kommando Khaki. The base was painted in the same way as the bases of my warhammer 40k terrain pieces (Mounfang Brown, Bleached Bone). The tower ruine was painted exactly the same.

The houses, yes they are just houses… really. The stone elements where painted similar to the towers, but the wall was dry brushed with bleached bone. After that I washed it with Agrax Earthshade. The roof of the first house was drybrushed with Mephiston Red, followed by Squig Orange and finally Kindle Flame and the second one with Regal Blue and Bleached Bone. There were some Metal elements, wich I painted with Shining Gold, followed by a layer of Shining Gold and Mirthil silver. To let it look more aged I added some Hawk Tourquise.

I really like these propaganda posters wich I added to my 40k scenery and I wanted to add something near it. I found some posters and they look really good. ๐Ÿ™‚

[WH40k] Creating some Scenery II

In the previous post I wrote about some new scenery I prepared for painting. I dreamed for about 5 years of my own battlefield and now it was time to start this project. It took me approximately 5 days to paint these scenery pieces.

For the craters I used a basic painting. I started dry brushing them with bestial brown, followed by a mix aof bestial brown and bleached bonw. I finished the craters with a dry brush with pure bleached bone.

I wanted that my street lamps look like a small highlight between the other pieces of terrain, wich are obviously larger. In order to do that I dry brushed them with shining gold and washed them with agrax earth shade. This gives the golden colour a dark shade and I gave it some highlights with a mix of shining gold and mirthil silver. After that I added some effects of corrosion with a mix of hawk tourquise and a huge amount of water. I took a standard brush and put this mix to some parts of the lamp wich, in my opinion, should look more aged.

After I painted this small pieces I put my attention on the Manufactorum. I love dry brushing and so I gave it a quick dry brush with boltgun metal, followed by a mix of bestial brown and blazing orange and after that by pure blazing orange. Finally I put some highlights with boltgun metal ย The metal doors got some special attention with catachan green, followed by a layer of camo green. I put some accents with a mix of camo green and bleached bone. I tried to give the door an aged appearance.

The next building was the Sanctum Imperialis. This time I wanted to try some new colour sheme, because I already painted a Manufactorum in the same way I did some years ago. But this building should look different. I searched through some old white dwarf magazines and the internet to get some inspiration and finally I found a green colour sheme I liked. For my sheme I started dry brushing the building with catachan, followed by straken green. When I searched for an adequate colour for the highlights I found an old flask of rotting flesh. This made a perfect highlight. The metal parts of the building were painted in the same way like the street lamps, wich includes the doors. I also added some imperial propaganda posters to the building.

Finally I painted theBasilica Administratum. This is the highest building. I really like it, because it overtops everything on the battlefield. I started dry brushing it with Codex Grey. After that I washed the whole building with asthonian camo shade, wich costs me the whole flask of wash. But it gives the building some kind of rotten green appearance. I highlighted the Administratum with Astronomican Grey. ย I also added some propaganda posters to this building and painted the metal parts like the street lamps.

I pretty much like the result and I think I don’t need any other scenery for my battlefield. In the next post I will write some lines about my new battlefield ๐Ÿ˜‰
