Not where I should be

Thanks guys, and Vik, no foot to worry at your comments were valid and heard, thank you, I always appreciate your comments, did not mean to shout you down bud.

So little more....
Varied some blocks colouring, few other touches...


Question, what the heck do I do with the windows can't decide at the moment.

Oh and some guns...

Anti air mini gun...



Kinda aiming for that minigun thingy they have on ships for shooting down missiles.

Talking of missiles...




And also some heavy anti-air that I am going to cast up, last lot where a failure.



Oh and some legs, not sure where these are going yet did not start out with this in mind!!..


Thanks for stopping by, thank you for all the comments they are all taken in and used I promise.

Variation in colouration is good.
What you do with the windows depends on what the aim of the piece is.
It's a nice courtyard, seems more "now" than "future"... getting quite the village cottage feel from it. Maybe look at a google of cottage pictures and see what grabs you.

Oh and some guns...
Look good.

Give the windows a simple treatment. clamshell plastic for glass, and 'wooden' frames, 6 over six if you can, otherwise 3 over 3. You can make the frames from electrical tape or some other vinyl tape. Quick and easy, and very effective looking.

Top work. The interiors of the tanks is just amazing and all those scratch built weapons are jaw dropping.

Thank you guys, very much appreciated.

The courtyard got away from me a bit so slipped it to one side for a sec and hada go at the vehicles....

Started painting the guns, still a ways to go and some detailing to add...






And did the back door for the command vehicle...



And with a start on the paint...




Looked out some crew...


Then I started getting the itch for those legs and began work on the top half...






With probable canopy, not set in stone on this yet but most likely...


And a scale shot...


This walker has got me thinking about this bit of the force, This walker would be a heavy weapons platform so maybe rocket launchers twin linked Lascannons or autocannons type of thing. I have given it 6 magnet mounts built in.

Example..


Now I am thinking of making these units a Scout type unit. These tanks are slightly less armoured and more in keeping with scout tanks similar to a Warrior in my mind, and the mobile HQ and the walkers all add to a scouty up front probing roll, so may have to do a couple units of snipers, and some fast moving vehicles...

Any way thank you for looking, and would love to have your thoughts....

Thanks bud. No idea if it would be usable, or if it could proxy, it has been done before, often by better than me, but that does not matter, I am enjoying it.

Thinking of venturing in your direction actually, originally that courtyard was for the tanks, but now thinking of a civilian car, similar to the one you have recently done. I will have to scratch something up.

Also need a favor, anyone know the markings I should be putting on my tanks? Had a look about and can't seem to find much. Would like to number them properly, ish. So does the scout element of an IG army have a designation as such?

The tanks are looking great, and that scratch-built sentinel is a thing of beauty. I find myself wondering how you achieved that splotchy effect on the tanks. Is that just basecoat and washes, or did you do something out of the ordinary?

You should start sculpting your own human shaped models...then you'd be totally autonomous!

Sentinel looks highly promising, the fitting rocket launcher tho later on should have a more streamlined look to it than the one borrowed from the other tank...or is it that you favor the mechwarrior look more?...than that'd be appropriate...

Sentinel is good. I do like. But, that giant weapon on the side really unbalances it. So, make a smaller weapon/attachment. (Yes, genuine C&C. I know that you can handle it. ) I suspect by the time I post this, you've already painted the sentinel too.

Oooh, a request. Maybe replace it with attachments to make a power lifter sentinel, or something for construction or building or terra-forming etc. I keep meaning to change my sentinels over to something that is more 'civvie' friendly. I could steal draw inspiration from.

Really sweet work as always mate! Need to have a proper go through and catch up with this blog... but the Heavy Sentinal is very cool!

I do kind of agree with red Harvest that the weapon pod does seem to unbalance it slighty.... Not sure if the idea is to have another on the other side... might sort that issue out..... Or..... maybe the large weapon units can actually be completely separate....

I was thinking kind of the weapon pods having their own "legs" and linked via cables back to the main walker..... which itself would have no weapons... but space for other equipment etc..... like a wanderer walking his 2 dogs...... or Michonne in the Walking Dead... with the 2 zombies on chains!

Just a thought... and prob way too late as you have no doubt already finished it! lol....

Not where I should be

Thank you all, you are too kind.

Thank you for the critique, agreed, and like the idea Magos, got some things in mind for that as well, well sort of.

As requested by Red, and yes I wanted to do this anyway. ..




Not that much done over last few days, not really sure why. Anyways the arms are many separate bits so I can make extra attachments, say a big knife (Avatar style) just use the upper arm and mount weapons, etc. There are magnets and friction fit joints all over so it is quite pose-able, al the moment got to do some work on the shoulder got a magnetic ball and socket joint which is great until I fully extend the arm. Here is a pic of the arm in bits...


@ Josh, Thanks bud, well I tried to do something, not sure yet if it has worked, I seem to have lost it amongst the washes, but I did try the beige and then a bricky colour red stenciled over it. Totally an experiment, made my own stencils out of hot glue.....

They are flexible, work fairly well provided you are not after hard crisp edges, and dirt cheap and easy...

Thank you all for looking and as always comments and critique welcome, and evcouraged.

I wonder if you should use these new hot glues stencils for making camouflage for tanks and such...seems this tech has a lot of potential!

The lifter arms for the sentinel have so much win, very old school alien Vibe!

Speaking of stencils, wouldn't using paper or cardstock work a little better? I find hotglue tends to do what it wants, no matter how hard I try to guide it.
