    Hmm, what's the tower with the climbing Skitarii going to be part of again; I'm pretty sure you said it wasn't a stand-alone project...?

    It's hopefully going to be part of a space port scene but that's a long way as I don't have the space to leave it out at present.

    Why not something smaller; perhaps something scaled-down, such as a missile launch pad for something like our modern ICBM's? The WH40K equivalent would probably be slightly bigger, but a single missile with technicians would probably need a lot less room...

    That's a good thought, already have some of the raised landing pad and control tower built in sections though so maybe a rework on scale may be needed.

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    Happy New Year All,

    After a bit of a turbulent few months, new job and of course Christmas, I have had a chance to try a few things this evening. All the big stuff is packed and wrapped as a pending house move is on the horizon, but threw this guy together in a couple of hours. My take on the imperial jack of all trades Cataphract robot. Legs are from blood and skulls, main body and arms are mantic stalker with scratch built body detail to square it of a bit. Weapons are heavy Bolter from the Prospero mkiii marines and a kit bash heavy flamer with bits from the genestealer cult vehicle leftovers and a redemptor flamer + Cadian backpack tanks. Needs a bit of cabling and green stuff to finish though.
    still need the power plant for the rear and the laz cannon shoulder mounted but thats for another evening. Hopefully before Easter!!

    Welcome back Mate and a happy new year to you as well.
    That looks cool. Sounds like youve done some deep bitsbox dives for this one.
    Love to see how it looks once you trow some paint on it

    Re: Craneblade. My first big conversion project

    So a productive if somewhat slow progress kind of evening. Finished building my Cataphract robot and had forgotten how much I hated working with green stuff , power plant modified from dreadnought part with FW solar aux, vehicle mount lazer mounted over the shoulder. Pipeing and fine rivets added to flamer so once all the green stuffs had a chance to harden its on to primer and base coats.
