Yeegads -- thanks to all who replied -- i blush!

glad you enjoyed it -- i had fun building it. I am always a little embarraased by my lack of painting skills so thanks for being kind.

as to what the base model was for the meganobs - richard at recreationalconflict
has "big daddy" resins - the base model - from Bioshok the video game

and maxmini
has "big guns"

GW has "big claws" and other bitz

and a bit of plasticard loin cloth, random plates and pipes and wires

mix well.

I posted a few more pictures in the gallery - including the first of three submersibles and amphibian flyers - still works in progress.

when i get a little time i will post my first army "The Clown Corps" - i need to take pictures of it. It is a chaos marine army, with circus theming. It was done as a therapy since i am afraid of clowns.....

Core, and its consumption of life, has become a well-oiled machine. Core has changed. ID tagged soldiers carry ID tagged weapons, use ID tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Genetic control. Information control. Emotion control. Battlefield control. Everything is monitored, and kept under control. Core has changed. The age of deterrence has become the age of control. All in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction. And he who controls the battlefield, controls history. Core has changed. When the battlefield is under total control, war... becomes routine.

Absolutely Brilliant! I hate when people play an army direct from the box, with no theme beyond 'this is what was in the book', and nothing to make it 'theirs'.

Have you put this in the general painting and modeling forum?
It NEEDS to be shown off more.
