"Box Cars"

Just a quick update on all those wood kits from Tectonic Craft studios.
This time around we are talking about Box cars. These things are pretty neat kits to assemble and paint. I think they came out really well. At today's NOVA staff meeting they were a huge hit. The NOVA open will be using them for Warmachine/Hordes as center pieces. Anyway check them out and let me know what you think.

An abandoned train car
I have been asked several times about the decision for the weathering pattern I chose. In this case starting in the center of each panel and leaving color near the edges. In the beginning this was an accident. I started doing it then realized too late that it it was not the normal way rust would work. I was all set to paint over it and start again when I stumbled upon some pictures of rusted train cars that actually had a similar effect. I made the decision to go "Go with it" and hope for the best. I think it's pretty cool looking...

That said, I still count this as a happy accident. :)

These have great detail burned into them.

The doors open as well

Well that's all I have time for right now.
