Warchimera Bunker and a Reaper Dumpster




 I love when stuff is  ready to paint right out of the box/bag.  Cleanup and prep has to be the most onerous task in the hobby for me.  So I was very excited when this Bunker from Warchimera required zero clean up... which means it gets to move to the top of the paint queue!



I'm trying out a new workflow to mix up my paint subjects and add in a single simple project that can be completed in a short sitting before proceeding to the more complex job of the day... kind of a warm up piece.  This Bunker is one of those.





I like the paint and glue friendly resin on this and painted it largely with various primer sprays (all Rustoleum this time since they were on sale for $3.00 a can...  flat black, for the floor, Camo Beige and Camo Green for the walls and roof) before adding some weathering effects via Forgeworld powders and GW technical paint.









 I added some signs from Verlinden spread the Forgeworld Powders dry and then set them with Rustoleum (That sale again!) Matte Sealer.



One-Shot Blondie has discovered Charlie rooting through the trash! 


The Dumpster is from the Reaper Bones II Kickstarter and is really a white hard(ish) plastic and not terribly similar to the rest of the bones material being , thankfully, quite rigid.  It opens up so will be great for hiding stuff during games. It was the another basic session starting piece done with green camo spray paint and weathered with Secret Weapon Washes, GW technicals and dolled up with some signage from Verlinden.

  1. Oh man I love that dumpster! Bunker looks great too, though I'd like to see some weathering/distress on that sign! Give it some bullet holes or something fun!

    1. Thanks Greg! I actually did some distressing on the sign with the dry powder in the same way the sign on the dumpster was done... but... it wicked away when I sealed it hahah... I'll have to revisit it with some more serious tools!... maybe POWER TOOLS! Muahahah!

    2. Haha, ya I use their fixing fluid on the dry stuff now...or just wash it before sealing!

    3. That sign is really just paper... its very shiny paper... but still paper.. so I was afraid that the fixing solution would eat the ink. Now that its been sealed that is probably not an issue anymore. I think some holes will also spice it up a bit!

    4. Hmm...true...but maybe it would have made the sign fall apart in an AWESOME WAY!
