Vik, the plastic is very much lighter than the resin. Therefore less can be more, so to speak.

Thanks LDD, I hope you ate well.....

As for me, I have been too busy to post. Very sorry. I will rectify this now:

I finally finished all the toe rivets.





Next I had to redesign and build the rear toe. I decided to put the proper rear toe on these. In the past on Mars patterns I had cheated and just used a copy of the the smaller front toes as a rear toe. These are the squared ones with the rollers underneath.







With those details decided I needed only stand the five of them up.









Imagine if you will, putting this on the floor of your Friendly Local Gaming Shop:



And then if you will, imagine opening it to show your opponents this sight:





I wouldn't wanna see that opened on me.....

But tomorrow VetGrunt is coming over again and we will be working on them more. I will be showing him weapons mounts and carapace forming as well as mybe starting actual weapons construction. Could be cool......

As I said a few days ago VetGrunt was coming over to talk about a few things.....


We discussed weapons sponsons, carapaces, heads and head mounts and the engine pod placement and decoration.....

I have mentioned in the past several things I wish I had done with my previous warhound. One being the cables that go from the main hull to the underside of the head and the cable that goes from underneath the engine pod to the individual weapons. Insisting this time to include everything I have always wanted to include I began by whipping up some of these:



These are magnets in tubing. The magnets are neodymium but are black because I filed them down to be flush with the tubing and the filings are, of course, sticking around.....

Then these:















Adding a few more rivets and flash rings to make them look more like cannon plugs eill be a quick job but for now, the cables are ready.....

Then I decided to trim the engine pods...





And, of course, I am also going to include the weapons servitor hoising on the weapons sponson this time. Another of those things I never did before but always wanted to. Here is the first. I like it so nine more are in the works......




Now, today is the 23rd. Which means that I have one week to finish the caestus ram and the two Sisters of Battle Warhounds.they will be my focus moving forward leaving the first week of February to finish the other three warhounds.....

I am in sufficient position to accomplish this goal very easily. See you soon.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
I should also note that I am want this time to actually do a more accurate job on the trim and decoration. Meaning, as the FW looks, so shall I attempt mine to look.....

Yeah, but why? If cables are usually black anyway and with them unpainted it allows for the weapons to turn in its mount with the cable attached. I suppose it is a matter of preference.
