Hammerstine the erstwhile leader of the ABC warriors and former war robot. This is a vinal kit gifted to me by a fellow modeller last year after i lammented about the cost of these suckers on evil bay. It had some warping and bubbels but this was easily fixed and i've left a lot of the clutter off him as i think he's busy enough.  He's had a major conversion in his stance but still not one hunderd percent happy with how he stands but vinly is a bit tough to alter, lots of araldite rapid in this guy lol :) Also added the helmet that Hammerstine wore in most of the early strips and to get away from the movie version (which he is). You may also have noticed his massive warhammer replacing his right hand. The hands were equiped with roket pods over his knuckels (a bit kak looking if you ask me) so he's gained a warhammer and a bfg pics of that soon.

Now here's the BIG question what coloure would you guys suggest? he's been lots of coloures in his time the one that sticks in my mind is a yellow-ish paint job by ( i think) Biz but still need feed back please. He will be distressed looking so a good coloure and a good undercote coloure, i'll be attempting the hairspray method of weathering ala Futch.

One final thing is a thanks to those posting comments Mordian 7th , Cyborg Trucker et al . Blogger is not letting me comment on my own blog at the moment (eh!) so just to say a big thanks and it's appeciated.

Just hope i can get him finished before my next post phycotic manic depressive episode hits or i get bored and distracted by new shiney stuff :o


Krazy Ivan done

Yep first finished model of the year
and second one is undercoated and ready for painting. Pics of Hammerstine to follow in next post.

 Side veiw showing his power pack, that was scratchbashed out of some chopper fule pods and random stuff laying around the desk.
 Rear view, added the cabels home made as usual and the small armour plate near the ankle is pingpong.
The legend on his lid is supposed to say steel legion but may be wrong Babel fish aint perfect lol.

Krazy ivan nearly done

 Here's my Ma.k in the USSR scratchbash nearing completion. It will be going to the Brampton model show in September as part of our (SFM;UK)'s Machinen Krieger display on our table.
 He started of life as a Votoms kit with added ping pong ball and random kit parts for his power plant and additional armore bits.

Hope you like, i'll be posting the finishd project soon and begining the next faze of project Brampton which will be my Hammerstine build. So close but stumbling blocks abound in that particuler build.
Comms and stuff welcome.

New recruit for the Brutal Cannon

 Here's the Chaos renegade i picked up at a model show earlier this year, nearly finished just the usual basing dilemma i always seem to have. He's now the company annalist / croniculer (sp) of the Brutal Cannon my homebrew chapter. It's been a dogs age since i did anything with them but the space marine mojo seems to have returned recently so exspect some more new recruites soon-ish.
 I will go into more details about the converting and his back story at a later date it's a bit late and i'm up at 5.30 to go to work so it'll have to wait lol

May redo his sholder pad, the teeth look megga pants in these pics.
