The machinations of war.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.

Unlike the last few weeks, there has been a little bit of a surge in hobby related progress this week and without further ado, I'll start with a small amount of progress on the Hanomag pattern Chimera:

As you can see, I have tidied up the heavy-flamer point, added some vision slits and started work on the fenders. I need to tie the front and rear fenders together so I will no doubt be filling in the trim on the front ones to match the plain edges of the rear ones. I plan on adding some track guards that will hide the untidy join in the tracks but they will need to be left off until the vehicle is painted... so it may be necessary to make some form of clip so that they can be removed/fitted. There is still quite a way to go but I think the addition of the fenders has really given the vehicle a solid feel.

Next up, I have had an arrival this week. Yes, my leg casts arrived from the caster. I will be making a separate post all about the whys and wherefores of the leg casts but in the meantime, here is a picture of my nice little box of legs:

There are fifty in that little box; five for me and the rest will be put up for sale (the separate post about the legs will cover everything about sales). Obviously, I couldn't get a box of legs without cracking on with my Exo project so here is a WIP of my squad of Wolverines:

I still need to properly attach them to their bases, clean up the legs (if they need it) and then add some details to make them each a little more individual. The Wolverines are a squad of female veterans who accompany their female charge into battle. They have an ancient form of armour that the armourers have always kept maintained for the maiden veterans to wear. They are a simpler, sturdier design than the male suits and are soley used for close quarter battle.

There will be more information to follow soon. I will keep everyone updated about the leg situation on here but I will flag it in all the usual places so that everyone gets a chance to get their hands on them. I very much doubt if I will do this for the next couple of days because I need to put together a decent review and work out costs etc.

In other news, I fixed the car on Wednesday (replaced the radiator); saving a lot of money in garage expenses and I have also been over to Mousehole to have a look around... there are some excellent rockpools there and we also think we saw seals... but it was difficult to tell. 

Well... that's about it for today.

See you from the depths of the armoury!

The legs turned out great. I like the simple space suit style domed helmet.
