So, recently, I decided to turn this:
Into a fully painted collection of minis that could match any army in looks and style.
Fifteen years ago, I first started playing Classic Battletech; however, these miniatures have sat unused for almost ten years, and I have learned much in the art of miniature-painting and conversion in that time. Using that skill, I plan to correct the gaping holes and other miscasting problems which plagued the plastics.
Any time you want to wonder why Games Workshop climbed to the top, just take a look at this vunderbar casting job:
Ugh. Some of the plastics I'm not even going to bother trying to fix, but the majority of them I want, and I will keep.
The crowning difficulty will be resurrecting my metal 'unseen' MAD-3R Marauder:
A close look will show that it's missing the top half of the left arm! I'm going to have to cut a paperclip to size, pin both ends, then resculpt the arm myself. it will be difficult, but dammit I'm determined to do it!
