I will be the first to admit I do not really like "mechs". My Childhood did not include them and I have not really seen any I like.....

Till now. I LOVE this. It has a "Privateer press" feel And I love that. I would be interested in one and depending on price maybe 2. Ill keep an eye on this!!

Who's producing this kit?
Or is this a future 'Black Dragon' Release :mrgreen:

I quite like it.....Apart from the feet?

The head reminds me of 'Appleseed' too.
Hey do me a favour, point that thing somewhere else!

That's a heretical thing to say around here! :P

I see a lot of Luca Zampriolo/Kallamity cues in the design, which is definitely a good thing. It's a dieselpunk looking mech.

Oh I just saw the link - it's the work of Fil Dunn! His previous claim to fame were some amazing Tau mecha kitbashes. I didn't realise he had sketching an design talent as well! He's mentioning preorder in a couple of days and I think I'm going to be forced to part with some cash. The thing is 9 inches tall! Properly, beautifully scratchbuilt too!
Oh yeah I can make that....

Welcome Fil :mrgreen:

Be great if you could fill in an admittance form for us too. It would be good for others to see some of your work linked, and also your inspirations etc.

Great to have you here!

The people who turn up here eh? ;)

It's really great to have you here Fil and I'm sure I speak for many when I say I look forward to seeing much more of your work! As Arkangel suggested we'd love to see a bit of a history and portfolio if you get a chance!
Oh yeah I can make that....

Wow, that's a really great looking kit. I agree with Zac. The style definitely does look to be in the same vein as guys like Luca Zampriolo.

I also second the request for any WIP or process shots of your work. (Edit: Nevermind. I see you have some on your website.)

Yay! Interesting to see that it doesn't have a right arm. While I'm not a massive fan of that design decision, it certainly doesn't detract from the overall model. The component count is surprisingly lower than I had expected (not that that is an issue).

Price is £140 + Shipping, which for the size of it is really not bad! Sign me up!
Oh yeah I can make that....
