Its been in the pipeline for a while now, but me and Mrs GunGrave have bought ourselves a house!! Its our first house, and thanks to being in senior positions in our respective workplaces, we've been able to bag ourselves a good one! Most importantly, it has a rather large basement, perfect for my new hobby cave!
However, before this hobby wet-dream can come true, we need to move. This means i'm having to shut down the Forge for the relocation and while my new Forge is being renovated.
The basement requires damp proofing, plastering, a new ceiling plus lighting and a new floor installed. It also needs new windows (pesky UK fire regulations...) Its no small task, but i have builders coming in 2 days after we get the keys for quotes! No messing around here, i want this new Forge operational ASAP!
In the meantime enjoy the hobby content that will remain on AGGTG, and i hope to be back online in a few months. I may be able to sneak on pics of the building work as it happens, so watch this space!

With the Infinity ITS tournament just around the corner, its time to keep pumping out those Aleph units.
One of the most important things to do in an Infinity game is to control the moments of the enemy soldiers as much as possible. A great way to do that is with mines! Monofilament ones tend to be particularly nasty, and the model is quite nice as well!
I was a bit more restrained with the shading of the black on this model, and tried to keep it to the very apex of the shaded areas. This would help me create better contrast.
Hopefully he'll be clogging up the enemy advance very soon!
