minor update. I've been slowly prepping models and I'm almost finished. Just a bit more to resculpt on a reaver titan and I'm good. anyway, part of what I've been readying are 9 of the 14 mechs left to paint. They are finally primed and ready to go when I get to them this winter. I'd do the last five but I'm a bit burned out on chopping up mechs, reposing them and sculpting. The clan star doesn't look it but there's been a considerable amount of work in cleaning the bits and fixing casting issues as well as reposing. The Dire Wolf had a lot of filling and sanding on the legs and the barrels on the arms replaced while the Nova had the PPC's fabricated and sculpted.
This IS lance is also pretty heavy on the conversions. Both marauders were chopped up and reposed to prevent their falling over backwards pose and fix the silly extended arms. The rifleman had almost every joint cut to repose and the warhammer had a heck of a time with the arms to get them to bend properly and look good in most of the viewing angles.
