|My lovely assistant keeps the work chair warm.
|A fast attack party looking for enemy supply lines to disrupt.
|This is a custom N-scale bushwacker sculpted by my friend Orkoone set on a custom base by my friend RacerX, both of whom i met on the Lords Of The Battlefield forum.
|The torso is fully mobile.
|I added a small vent to the back of the left arm launcher.
|I also added the targeting array to the right torso, extended the gun barrels on the right arm weapons using metal tubing, and added a small power cable to the small gun using a piece of guitar string.
|This is a modified MW Raptor alongside a modified Kite hover tank. One of their few original mechs I actually liked. You can see the added heat sink behind the laser on the right torso as well as the minigun tucked under the hull.
|Here is the other mod- a laser cannon with a targeting computer.
|Added a guitar string power cable to the back of the laser cannon.
|A familiar theme here for all of us X-box fans. N-scale Halo vehicles! The Pelican dropship and the Warthog are hand-sculpted by me.
|The Scorpion battle tanks are modified MW pieces. I do not remember what they were, I just knew they suited my purpose perfectly with very little work. I hand sculpted the turrets and the driver compartment.
|a nice shot of the whole battle group.
|Here is a slightly modified Robotech toy, known in Battletech as the Longbow.
|I sculpted the missile ports and the pod covers.
|To keep things a bit more family friendly, I painted a bra on the mech honey. You can also see where I added some armor plating to the top of the missile pods.
|I also sculpted a cockpit, a bit more of a nose, and a pair of chin-mounted cannons.
|Finally, I added a couple of vent covers to the round ports in the rear.
|A custom sculpted Dragon by Orkoone.
|To add a bit more movement to my mini, I altered the hip joints. I also added a thick washer to the torso to give her a bit more height in proportion to the long legs.
|I also added a couple of thin washers to the shoulders so the arms would not hit the legs when the torso turned. It also gives her a slightly wider, meaner stance.
|I sculpted the base myself. She is flanked by a pair of modified MW Kites and a Micromachine tank that I can only describe as a minigun nightmare!
|I wanted to do something interesting with one of my MW Thors. I was inspired by the X-box game Mech Assault. Before you could fire your PPCs, they had to charge up. I have tried to capture that moment with this Thor.
|The PPC ball is a wad of sponge with copper wiring stuck in it.
|Anbody that played or still plays MW:DA might recognize what I used for the jump jets- the heat dials i pulled off of the base! I also altered the left arm cannon by making a new barrel and sculpting an ammo drum for it.
|Another modified Thor with a few of his lance mates.
|First, I sculpted a new lower left arm assembly and gave him a hand. The laser cannon pod on the left shoulder is from a Macross pod walker. The right arm cannon is from an old Votoms trooper model.
|The camo netting is the backing off a 3M Hook-It sanding disc. I dyed it green and brown using ink and then carefully glued it into place on the mech.
How's that for an update? This should keep you guys busy for a while. What is in the pipeline? I've got a couple of old Ral Partha museum scale Madcats that I am painting for a friend. Hopefully I can get these girls finished before the weekend is over....Until then, I apologize for being gone so long. It is good to be back!
