Sorry for delays, got some work on their skins and eyes done, next will be the lighter eye and sensory organs in their head tentacles on the Unidrons.

More work to follow, I must make a lighter color of the idea of glowing eyes. Skin is pretty much of the reddish kind, and then power supplies in blue, as well as the Plasma.

TY Oldmate! I have given thought to resurrecting more old tanks and making them 40k-ish. The old British/french and russian ideas work well, and avoid the trope of Pz-II's as IG vehicles .

Okay so a break from ground units, and also breaking the drought as I did get my camera and computer to communicate with each other. I present the Chunky D-20 attack cruiser!

and a big trifoil on the belly
[/img]

I have her using a Torpedo launcher in the front, and twin launchers in the tail. It has a compliment of 10x multi-directional disruptor turrets and 4 heavy disruptor cannons in the front end of the warp nacelles


Next is the reinforced and bulked out D-10 multi-purpose cruiser. it can be a carrier, landing operations and command and control vessel as well as a battle cruiser.
[/img]

[/img]

[/img]

Torpedo launchers in the front and rear, 4 rear disruptor turrets, 4 belly turrets, 4 dorsal turrets, 6 turrets on the command section, 2 turrets at the base of the neck. 4 heavy disruptor cannons in nacelle tips, and 2 disruptor cannons at the "wing" tips.
That one is a beast in combat.

Those Klingon ships are weapons of beauty. They really take me back, especially the D10.

I came into the thread for the Klingon ships, but I'm staying for the aliens. Those are really cool, with paint jobs that pop.

Thanks Bob! , I had to have the old FASA designs even though they are slightly altered, but updated. the #-D prints are sturdy and took well to drillingand pinning for the turrest and display standd pole.

Well, I have done more work on the Anathematic, still have yet to add the green element to it. But here, check out his power claws.

Thanks guys, I have to finish the killer synthoid, and also have started a new model for my 1/1000 collection too! Klingon D-6 from the Axanar fan film from 2014, and future upcoming 2-parter Here are the warp nacelles, Impulse reactor/shuttle bay area and the upper bridge partrs.
[/img]



Hull and neck-to-bridge with under panel, the neck is also very nice due to metal insert to keep it from sagging when assembled.
[/img]


Neck support struts, warp nacelle components, shoulder cannons, and trailing edges of the wings.
[/img]


Nice and chunky base
[/img]


pointy bits are the four impulse engine sections, (makes it very maneuverable), rectangles are panels for the warp engines, th smaller 2 parts are the back ends of the war engines, the dome is of course the classic Klingon bridge section ball.
[/img]


I did speedily clean, dry and assembled the parts, and here is what i could get the parts to do for me.

Coming at ya!

Batch 5

And the close up effects of the images point out where the red needs touch ups on the minis.

Merry Holidays all! Came back to end the year with a new distraction as I got hold of 3 that's right, 3 new TAG minis. First up is the Yu-Jing Wolf Cavalry model, a beefy beast well armed for shooting, flaming, and even close combat

parts

I did get Wildfire, so my O-12 will be getting a powerful reinforcement with this baby. Big fist and BIG Gun!
[/img]

what was in the box was chonky!
[/img]


And the first one to get built/painted is the Shasvaastii Sphinx in it's revised glory and it looks like a HUGE Gwailos but a big gun/sword, and a wrist flamer.
[/img]

some fiddly bits

and on other news, my Megalodron has hit the states, and I await it's progress to my mailbox.

Okay, I ordered this as a kick starter pledge back in early March, it has come though some weird gak due to the world being hit by the Pandemic, but in freezing temps of the bitter kind, it landed on my front porch! at long last, after months of waiting, I have the Megalodron! the shape of the box threw me off, until I looked inside and found it like this
[/img]

Easily assembled and disassembled for now for cleaning and painting purposes.

The base and legs and lower torso Main lkegs and smaller pedipalp fighting legs
[/img]

Assembled, (not permanently

.
Left side, Plasma cannon and heavy blade
[/img]

Back of it, Power plant for systems and shields and other bits
[/img]

Right side with open claw
[/img]

close up of sharp claw tips.
[/img]

Jungle base includes a defeated ORCA T.A.G. suit remote fighter.
[/img]

close up of the Plasma cannon
[/img]

Upper head/neck/back
[/img]

Face at different angles
[/img]
[/img]

the slot for the lower end to join with, so now you see why permanent assembly may not be needed.
[/img]

Overall a very chonky beast, and one that seems slightly de-greased, but the base indicates a warm-soapy wash is needed, and then filing down spots as seen, then I should be able to ink it and then primer it. And it is kind of a tank for the C.A.
