Awesome, thanks Dez!
I've been meaning to start this for ages but haven't had a suitable camera or the time to do it, but now I have both!
First picture should be up tomorrow! :D

Is it going to be as good as your looted tau vehicle? That thing is awesome.

I took that apart. It's what I'm going use :)
It's not massively different but I've got to re-attach the drones, redo the engine and stick the Boomgun back on :D

OH Awesome I got nothing to do so a ripper with an adrenal gland counts as a dom XD just for laughs, oh and a more serious tyranid based idea which I hope I'll be able to get done.

My 3D Printed parts cleared customs yesterday and are on their way from the Processing Facility in Vancouver... so hopefully I'll be seeing them Monday or Tuesday. It's going to be cutting it close, but I'm off work all next week ;)

Look after yourself today- you still owe me two flagons from our last arm wrestling match. It would be just like you to get yourself killed to avoid paying your debts.

Man, i would have to find this thread after the month is more than half gone, At any rate I'm working on the same thing as "Epic Mike", An Illuminor Szeras model. I don't have access to a camera except for on weekends so I'll post a pic this weekend. Probly gonna lose to mike, but it will still be fun.

One thing i have to ask though, i didn't start building the model till this month as i was waiting for parts to come in, he's not finished yet as i still need a couple more parts and they won't be here till next weekend, so in all he's about 60% built. can i still use him for this thread, or will it not count since i did start him before posting here?

Assembled the model before painting?? It's not a n00b mistake, it's a training exercise to improve your painting skills

Sweet! thanks Dez, I can break him back down somewhat by removing the top portion off of the main body with no damage to the model so as to give a better picture of the parts used. easy enough to put him back together again, just glue the top and bottom back on each other.

Now I just need the rest of the arm bitz to come in and I can get that part finished. In the meantime, I can start painting the body.

Amazing sebastionsynn!

Dez, I've been magnetizing my carnifex. Im not putting a lot of converting into it, so I don't think it's really special. Just magnetized.
Should I still submit it?
