I said I was on a mecha kick this month, didn't I? Well, this chap came about today, after a through scouring of my dwindling metal bits. There are bits from at least 9different models in there, I think, all pinned and glued into a pleasing mass.
His weapons are still coming, and I'm not pleased with his ass, yet, but oh well. He'll get there.
I said I was looking vintage 1/87 scale Heavy Gear models, didn't I? Well, I still am, so if you have any, do drop me a line. From the depths of my bits stores emerges this fellow, along with his other friends. Still in progress, he needs to gain a sniper's cloak and some other bits and bobs, but I think he's turning out well.
Hrm. Well, it is what it is.
Yes, he carries whips. Considering his size, I'm sure it's not very pleasant to be on his bad side. The legs are.... the best I could do with what I have, actually. You leave one game system (Battletech) for a while (20 years ago) and your resources dwindle. The new Iron Wind sculpts are appalling, by the way. Ick. We'll be staying with our MWO sculpt source, thank you.
His larger friend is a mecha of few words and several ugly weapons. He was also mostly primed, just never finished. I must've been going through a break up or some other turmoil.
This Urbanmech, however, will be giving anyone who comes near a huge surprise. I love that they have waists and hips, now.
