Dakka dakka dakka dakka dakka dakka dakka!!!! Phew! I love that scene :-)
Right, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system I can show you my newly finished Ed209 inspired robots in the spirit of Dreadtober. I’ve tried to incorporate a few design elements from the original Robocop movie, specifically the light grey, and the matt black canopy for the ‘head’. I also wanted to match them with my small collection of RT era Guard, so included the dark blue elements, the red & white cheques, the graffiti and weathering. I was a bit worried that the weathering would detract from the overall Robocop vibe, but in the end I just went for it – I figure that these droids would get some pretty hard use, and would show some serious wear and tear. I think it worked out, but see what you think:
So, that’s it for this little project – hope you folks like ‘em. I’m glad to get it out of the way to be honest, it has been a really busy time, and I haven’t been able to just sit and put in the hours that something like this demands. The approach has therefore been a bit haphazard, and I don’t really like to paint that way. I’ll be getting on with some Frostgrave bits over the coming weeks, so expect to see smaller, more manageable jobs for the foreseeable future. I also have some boats to build, (with corresponding tutorial!).
Finally, I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who chipped in with some honest feedback and good advice during the build. It’s so easy to say ‘yeah, that’s great mate’, (like), but it is much more courageous and time consuming to engage your brain and give some constructive criticism, so thank you to everyone who helped. You guys totally rock!
