Sunday and a day of travels.

I've had a great day today. I traveled down to sunny Somerset to visit my family and enjoyed my time thoroughly. The only downer was the three hour drive either way, in rather icy conditions but I took it slowly and never had any problems.

So I guess you'd be expecting no update then? Well think again. First is the finished prototype Grymn Cavalry trooper:

As a result of some of the constructive feedback I have received on the Forum of Doom, I will try to bend the knees a bit on the next one. He'll also be getting an SMG rather than a plasma rifle.

Next up is the first of two heavy weapon Cavalry troopers. It is a Baruk and it is still very WIP at the moment:

You will have probably noticed that the riders are the same. That is due to them being the right pose for what I want. I will be removing heads and converting them to be don't worry :). I have a long way to go on the Heavy. I need to add pouches, ammo boxes and possibly an ammo feed (haven't decided whether to have an ammo feed or box magazine...). I also need to convert the rider properly and finish the weapon support.

On the plus side, I have decided to have these as part of my desert veteran army. I think they will go particularly well with the veterans as they are all mounted in armoured walking APCs (Tiger APC from the Void range). I will save the bikes I am planning for the urban or temperate armies I have instead ;).

Well, that is about it for tonight. I doubt if I'll be doing too much tomorrow as I have been drinking Red Bull on the journey (to stave off tiredness whilst driving) so I doubt if I'll be doing much sleeping tonight...

See you through some bleary eyes!
