Kastelan robots

It is vacation time! Which means that I might get some hobby time in between all the things that is needed to be done around here. To start off I finished the pair of Kastelans that I have been working on at my place away form home (i.e work in another part of the country). This one also have the combo fists/guns as I did on the first one. I also decided to twin link the auto cannons, using both provided in the set. To do so I needed to shift them from the right side to the left so that I could stagger them without having the ammo boxes colliding. I think it turned out really nice. Now I just need to finish of the bases (which i am notoriously bad at doing). I really like these robots, apart form the head, and I can very well imagine me getting more. To bad about the data priest as he is mono pose and having multiples of him in the same pose will look a bit strange.

I still have a few models left from my 40th birthday present from my wife, but I still decided to go a head and get my self a little larger present from my self (with the wife's consent and blessing). So I order up some big time reinforcements for the northern ghosts in the from of a warlord. This means that project titan will start up again. One thing I am not happy with with this model is the head choices. Not that there is anything major wrong with the Knights head but the warhammer world exclusive would fit so much better for what I have in mind for the Varangian (name of titan). It is a bit strange that they would make a part of such an expensive model exclusive to the ones visiting warhammer world. If you pay top money for a collectors model you would like to have all the options without having to get on a plane and fly in to Nottingham to get it in person. Well I will see if I can get hold of one some how. Until then I think it will be headless. I will use the shields though as they are better looking. Of course I will do it in the same transitional mode as the rest of the titans of the northern ghost, but this time I will have to sculpt the chaos parts instead of the imperial. I am also thinking about building an interior in the main body, as there are such in the other titans. I will have to see if it can be done without compromising the stability of the model. I am also thinking about making a scenario base, but I am generally not a big fan of those, so I am a bit apprehensive about it.

Well I will get back about it when the package from Forge World arrives.
