New Toy!

First off I built this Whirlwind Turret over the past week.

That was just exercise for today. I bought the new Chaos Lord on Manticore model. Holy crap is it awesome! Most GW kits give you a lot of options but you can only build it one way because most of the options use a lot of the same parts... Which kind of sucks... But this is not the case with the Manticore kit. You have two choices of tails and two choices in heads (one for mounted, one unmounted). Each head is made up of 8 peices. These heads dont share parts, you can completely build each head. Yeah, most people would just glue the head they wanted to the body and be done with it. But for the advanced modeler this is a godsend. I get two complete models for the price of one through Magnetization. This is my plan. I'm gonna pack greenstuff into the tail hole to support a magnet for the tails and the head sections are already studded/socketed and with minor drilling, I'll be able to place magnets really easily.


Heads or Tails!
