Westwind Jotun

As previously posted, I went for plain German grey. I still have to decide if I am going to add some transfers.

Imperial Knight Building

For my second Imperial Knight, magnetising the Chainsword/Power Glove options was a little bit more complicated then the ranged weapon options on the first Knight.

The first step was to get all the bits laid out so I could work out where to make the magnetised joint and what spacers were required for the magnets.

I had to do plenty of trimming and drilling on the main arm joint to take a 6mm diameter magnet.

Another magnet was added in the Chainsword join on top of some plasticard spacer.

This should work well when the whole thing is painted and fitted together.

Whats On The Table?

There is a mech frenzy going on at the moment, I have a small collection of Westwind mechs that were the result of a Kickstarter some time ago. They have been sitting up on a shelf, undercoated, but unfinished for far too long.

I added a heavy machine gun to the top of this Mech to give it a bit of defensive fire, I just need to get some suitably American colours on to it. That will be olive green then.

Whats On The Table?

There is a mech frenzy going on at the moment, I decided to get a selection of models finished to make way for the next project. Why is there always another project waiting to be started?

Anyway, I bought this Wolsung Golum model just because I liked it, I had no real use for it, but I thought it could be used in my Mechanica force. It just needs a spalsh of ink to finish it off.
