The invasion continues

I'd like to welcome my newest follower Makaison!  Welcome to Inso's World and I hope you enjoy investigating the local area.  You never know what you'll find.

If I am not mistaken (I may well be), I reckon Makaison is someone who I've just traded with to get more Necrons.  If that is the case...cheers greatly!  If it isn't the case...move along; nothing to see here :D .

So...I have been wheeling and dealing and have managed to source another 12 Necrons and 12 Scarabs with more scarabs being kindly donated by someone over at the Forum of Doom (I will wait with anticipation for them).  Add to that a 10" long, stripped down, Thunderbird 2 model, my remaining Necrons and a host of 'bits and bobs' and it looks like I am in the grip of the latest project to resurrect itself.

So much for plans!

That said, I have an almost complete transport for the Tunnel Fighter army, sitting on the painting it isn't all Beetle-bots (although it may as well be).

While all this conversion is going on, I have been gripped by my dropship demon.  I can see myself digging out some of my Old Crow vehicles for measuring so that I can start working out the size of the beast.  One thing I have been working on is how to break it up into modules and I have decided to build things in bits with dowels to join the modules together.  The first module will be the cargo area...hence the need to measure the 'cargo'.

Thoughts have also turned to the Beetle-bot transport (a counts-as Monolith made from the Thunderbird 2 toy).  I am not saying too much more about it at the moment but I am trying to find a way of making it 'cute' but still quite menacing.  It will also need to look like it will do the there is quite a lot to think about!

My brain is burning!

Well...that is it for now.  I will have a few pix to show off on Sunday so it will be something to look forward to.

See you from the poop-deck!

In naval architecture, a poop deck is a deck that forms the roof of a cabin built in the rear, or "aft", part of the superstructure of a ship. is, indeed, a silly name :)

Cheers! I have everything tidy now so my OCD can chill out :).
