Dwarfs Assembly Project Udate the First

Started my Dwarfs earlier in the week.

Decided to start with the Hammerers unit and then the Longbeards. Figured since they shared the same kit, building would be easier, and it was. These new Dwarf plastics are amazingly well done. Very easy to build, and the flashing and mold lines were within reason.

21 Hammerers with Full Command in 7x3 formation

20 Longbeards with Full Command in 5x4 formation

With all the excess parts left over, all I would need would be more body parts and I could have another unit of each.

Commission: Knight Titan Update 2

Here is some more progress shots of the Knight.

Here you can see the main skeleton

And here with its Armor Plates for scale

And here it with its head

Commission: Imperial Knight Titan

Started work on my friends first Imperial Knight Titan

Damn does this kit kick ass...

Just saying...


ahem... where was I... Ah, yes. This is the first giant robot kit I've assembled since I was a kid. I used to love the Revel Robotech Defenders line and I had most of the ones they released, especially all the Macross kits they did.

But I will say, this Imperial Knight kit has to be one of the best models Games Workshop has released in a long time. One of the best of their Giant Robot  kits that's for sure. There is far more detail on this model than the Riptide or Wraithknight combined. It is just amazing. There are a lot of small pieces, but not frustratingly so (at least not for me). This does make for a slow assembly as I am taking my time doing it.

Anyway, here is my progress

Red base is from my Forgefiend
You can see how much larger the Knight Base is.

She's got legs!

OOOPS! Where did that come from?!

Yeah... I needed a new army like I needed a hole in my head... What the hell was I thinking...
