Varangian WIP

I have finally gotten around to finishing of the green stuff work on the insides of Varangian, I also managed to get the chimera done and the base and the legs with armor. I have really been productive lately. Soon I can start the painting process on the internal panels. There are some minor work left to be done on the legs and feet but they can also soon go to paint. All in all I am very happy with the progress. I think that when I finally made up my mind about what needed to be done it was not that hard to do. I am also quite pleased with how the leg pose turned out. I am however a bit worried that I might have but the pelvis a bit to much forward and that it will put a lot of strain on the legs and that I might have similar problems as I have with my stalking warhound. Things might feel a bit more secure once the pelvis and ankle pistons are in and the leg-base triangle is closed. Well this is just a short update on my progress. There are some lessons learned in there somewhere but I will have to come back to that.

Moving the Hobby room.

We finally decided to move our hobby/computer room from downstairs to upstairs. Just about one year later than planned. Essentially we split it into a separate Hobby room and a computer room to get some more space. The old room was very cramped and everything was on top of everything. I still have the same desk but it is now in a corner which actually give me less space than what I had before. But I also get my old table, that I had before our move to the hose, back so all in all I gain hobby space. Now I just have to finish the new display shelf and the door to the room. This will however have to await some warmer weather.

I was also able to move Opus back indoors again and I will also bring all the parts for Varangian to the hobby room. I hope it will be easier to work on these large projects if I have everything in the same place. Otherwise there is always this threshold to overcome to work on them, when I have to go out to the garage.

I am looking forward to settling into this new space.
