Robot ideas

After some tinkering with the Robot idea I now have a concepts so I have officially upgradet this to a new project, project robot. My big question right now is if I should have the "launchers" on the shoulders or not. And if I should have them, exactly how should they be mounted. The legs turned out slightly different than I thought they would but I think they are ok. Originally they where shorter and sat more closely together as they where mounted in the original leg recesses. The spacers used to fill the large holes in the main body did however change this. The alternative would have been to use green stuff to cover it up. Apart from this I think it will work, it needs some green stuff and so but otherwise I am happy. I try to keep the amount of customization to a minimum at this point, using as much of the original models parts as possible, as this will make it easier to make more of the same without having to make to much sculpting. There will always be some green stuff filling to cover-up some mismatches and such and I can always make a more advanced version later when I have worked out what needs changing.

  1. Personally, I like it with the launchers. It adds some bulk. The only thing I'm not sure about is the lower leg armor. The pattern is very Tau looking. Maybe smooth over any two of the three panel lines? It looks great as it is though, so please don't take that suggestion too harshly.

  2. Thanks, I have thought about what to do with this part since it has these cut outs for the hips, that are now over the ankles. It might not be a bad idea to just smooth it over with green stuff and make them more symetrical.

  3. Hi, I came across your site and wasn’t able to get an email address to contact you. Would you please consider adding a link to my website on your page. Please email me back and we'll talk about it.

  4. Hi Joel, I do not have my email on the blog yet, I might add one later if it is requested by more people (for discussions of 40K modeling). I Checked your website and it did not appear to be related to warhammer 40K so as it is now I will not link to it from this blog. Best regards Agis.
