Very nice work indeed  :-*

Have you thought about a colour scheme?

They look good. I'd suggest shifting the claws onto the front of their 'arms' though as they look a little flimsy where they are.
They are fine in reality.  One pincer is designed to fit like that so is very secure.  The other I had to reverse, as they are all right sided pincers, but I have pinned the joint.

Did I mention the Anglo/Sanwar alliance of 1888?
I am so glad these chaps will be allied to the British expedition in a couple of weeks time ;)
Great stuff Paul, your building quite a force to be reckoned with, very inventive  ;D
It will be if I can find enough time to paint it and my LPL entries.  ::)


Oh nice...  ;D
Thanks Ray.  Funny, no multi-legged walkers for ages, then several come along all at once.

Have you thought about a colour scheme?
Not sure yet. As none of my VSF is painted yet (apart from the sub of my subnef) I cant decide. Time is running out.  :?

I'd go for something a bit ragged.

Or pastel turkish style colours? ???

They've been busy... they took a holiday to Atlantis. Check some of the threads for the campaign, they've been fighting the British and the Confederates I think, sometimes allied to the Caliph of Khosind and his Prussian 'military advisors'.

Bloody hell, you are a marvel!

I really like the tractor and Tesla gun. I have a bunch of those Ork vehicles sitting around doing nothing, I might make some similar ones.

I like the choice of colours on the Automata and Scorpion as well. Is that plural as in there's two of them?!
I will DEFINATELY have to raid my bits box...

Having seen them on the other end of the board, I can confirm he has two Scorpions. In fact, looking again, the first pic is of them side by side.
So many projects..... so little time.......

Bloody lovely work Paul!

You cant go wrong with that colour scheme, it's got a good Victorian feel to it.
I use something similar for some of my contraptions, usually Vallejo Hull Red. What did you use?

Thanks for the comments.  :D

@Thunderchicken:  I actually borrowed the colour scheme from your Nef.  I used GW Dark Flesh, then gradually added some orange as a drybrush.
