    Nice figures indeed. Just can't understand people making comments about the size of pistol holsters. What a great idea Mag lock Holsters. I do like the Trooper doing the kicking. I can think of some good dioramas for that figure.

    Re: A New Squat Army

    Cheers .

    I have since added wire for the arms and started bulking it out... and they have started to look quite dynamic (even the ones just standing ) . It's going to be a pig; sculpting the pistols but it's not something I haven't done before... and seeing as these are not as uniform as some of the previous ones, a little bit of difference will be fine . Axes and hammers wont' be a problem .

    Re: A New Squat Army

    Something from the weekend . Started on Friday evening, finished on Sunday. Someone contacted me and asked if I could sort out a Squat piper for him... I said I'd give it a go and really got into it . It's nice when that happens; especially when I'm in a bit of a lull (motivation wise) at the moment . It's converted from a classic, plastic Squat head/body and a few bits of wire and tubes... with a bit of green stuff . It's already been sent off too ...



    I'm now thinking that I might need a piper for my project now... what do you reckon?

    Inso,

    Well I think that would be a grand idea indeed. Good job on the old Trooper figure.

    Re: A New Squat Army

    I'm glad you like him . I wanted to mix things up a bit .

    The belt buckle was left plain so that it could be painted like a planet... but I'm sure that other details could be painted on to "shujj it up a bit".

    I have a female version on the cork at the moment...and I am working on one of the close combat troopers too . Once the lady has some clothes on, I'll share some pics because at the moment, some of her assets look weird because I have squashed them to fit into clothing .

    The close combat troops are coming along nicely. Just arms and weapons to go :

    They look great, especially the kicker!

    Are you planning a mini diorama with the kicker?

    Cheers .

    I'm not even sure that I'll be adding any of these to my army (apart from the DJ) because there isn't a slot for them (unless I use them for sgts/officers) so I doubt I'll make a diorama.

    Re: A New Squat Army

    It's slow going... but I only have to sculpt the bolt-pistols and basing tabs... and do a final tidy up... and the five Close Combat troopers will be finished.

    I haven't been in a sculpting mood, lately (I got poorly ... but I'm better now ) so I am on a bit of a go-slow. That said, I have nearly finished sculpting a mecha (converted, Robotech, Gartan mecha) pilot for my OLD army project (based on the original plastic Squats) and am ticking along with the bolt pistols, in between drying times... did I mention that I don't like sculpting weapons so that isn't helping at all.

    Still... all progress is progress, no matter how little .
