Pods 2.

Well, after a couple of hours chopping and gluing, I am happy with the height of the first four pods:

As you can see in the pic, it just took four cuts per leg and a little bit of a re-glue and they have been brought down to a less gangly height. Once I have done the same to the other four, I will sort out the little details and base them ready for paint. I am thinking about making the white ones a bit more dynamic and maybe in the process of flying/landing.

I have a small selection of Grymn that have been in storage for ages. They were converted to be desert Grymn but they could work equally well as jungle troops. I reckon that if I painted the pods in a mid green with yellow markings and white decals, they would suit a jungle theme quite nicely and would provide me with a good place to put my stagnating Grymn.

It really is amazing what being bored can help you to achieve...

See you from the butcher's block!

Saw this and thought of your grymn
With some modification I think they would make nice ships

Cheers for the link but I've seen those before and to me, they just look like Harold the Helicopter from the Thomas the Tank Engine stories.

I'm sure that I could probably make one into a decent craft but replicating it would be tough.

Nice thought though :).
