I think a bit more trimming of the arm and allow the Missile Launcher to be more flush with the "body" Vik Like the new sentinel missile launcher does.

The new sentinel kit is at the GW online store for IG and it has the ML modeled on for show on the box cover. It fits snugly against the side, Has about 5 missiles and is compact for an IG weapon!

they look nice together , did you say you were going to paint the last one ? imo the multy launcher thing is a bit much , i would get rid of it , and their is something about no 2's paint schem that dosent work for me mate, like its two halves , and needs to be the gkloden ration thirds , if you understand me,? maybe the groin protector should be red.? still they look cool together. really cool models .

hmmm... this is a serious thought you have come up with... golden ratio... i am a slave for that^^... but i can´t normally think that consciously when working....i will give the Nr. II a new groinprotector! thanks for the helpful thoughts...hope this will help...
well i am too very unsure about the multi lancher...the whole mini is much smaller than a sentinel anyway so this is a bit too much even for that... semms the mini would topple over if lauched to or three missles closley after another...
what about the flamer? i know it is most odly positioned...will have to rip that also apart...
and yep that one has to feel my persoal touch of the brush too...will never field a mini that has been painted by another! nobles obliges!

the flamer looks alright , and looking again i think that the multy launcher just needs to be in the same colour as the rest of the model . then it wouldnt look too big.

I think that maybe the Havok Missile launcher needs to be mounted flush onto the torso piece. The arm puts it too far away, looks like it would get blown off easily or overbalnce the Mech while walking.

Overall the 'Collosus' Look Awesome and i would love to see a pic with the other troopers.

that at least can be arranged^^

as of now i cut the arm off so mounting the ML directly to the body would be no problem ...no big anyway^^

will make a comparrision pic as soon as i am again offline^^

so some of you, for example perkustin, asked for a comparrision shot of the colossus sentinels and some gueardsmen...
i throw some other known models into the mix for further comparission. to bad i don´t own a GW sentinel atm...size issues are obvious, but well...rules are there to bend ^^


together with footslogging steamies and a spacecrusade currently with the earthangels scheme soon to be changed to iron templars... and a conversion of a standard dread into a vernerable dread too for the earthangles...


and side by side with the footslogging IGs

I rather like those as sentinals The hull looks big enough to hold a guardsmen, and this one seems more fitted for smaller areas, unlike the towering monsters GW produces.

very compact and egg-like...as I said I'm considering getting 3 of these and buying some ork bits and mashing it together to form...robospud's kids!
Dunno when, but it WILL happen, probably before death korps.

Well, the Mark series is I believe even more the basis for the Malcador class tank, making your project on that scale.

delicious...
i like the 360° lookaround with the bolters on the turret....

do you think from the current job is something to be salvaged or should i start all over again?...

I think salvage is possible, and you have the other tread section to make as well with the same cut-out.

That tower structure helps a lot for the heavy bolters.
