Ok, so i have been semi forced to produce some more warhounds. My friend vetgrunt will be assisting. Please check out his thread and teach/encourage him.....


http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/570187.page


ok, so this is what is gonna happen:

Over the next two weeks I will be starting and finishing four more warhounds. Two rather plain and normal and two SOB themed. Vetgrunt will be learning how I do it and hopefully producing his own....

Iam also going to try to design and complete a Caestas Ram by the endof January.

Well, no more work done on the ram but lots done on the warhounds. Having VetGrunt come over gets the creative thought processes flowing. I think of things to show him and end up getting really good ideas:



Above I have changed the way I am doing the piston mounts on the foot pads. Before they were mounted into square tubing. That always left them a little bit limited on the range of motion they could reach. BUT!, with Vet here on Monday (we had a snow day at work, go figure) I found that the pearlized plastic beads that I previously had trouble gluing work perfectly with Bondene. Never thought to try it before. Call me stupid. Now they will mount onto the little beads and have much more range without having to be forced into looking like they could work.

Also:



Here I have added a slat of slotted styrene simulating synchronous gearing......

Okay, that was a mouthful.....

What I hope to achieve is a more fully detailed model. I think it works.....

I think my execution on this one could have been better but I like it.....

Remember this guy?



Well I dont remember posting it anywhere but I made mold of the side cap on the kneesof this bad boy for just this reason:



Wow ten of those done in ten minutes...... That works for me.....

And this.....





Been wanting to change these up a little for several warhounds, now.....

And finally,



No, not standing yet but very far along. I promise when these are done I will have earned a retirement from titans........

Warlord, what?!?!?!

Whoop whoop!
