Evil Sunz Weirdboy Complete

Done!  The power cables were a pain, but I'm pleased with how they look.  ZZAP!

Evil Sunz Weirdboy Part 2

A quick hit today.  I got the Grounding Staff mostly put together.  I started with a boyz choppa arm, lopped off the axe, put a a pin through what was left of the handle, and superglued a section of tubing in place:

Evil Sunz Weirdboy Part 1

Blah Blah Blah, back to real content.  Just a quick hit, I've been working on a Speed Freek themed Weirdboy.  This guy is simply a Stormboy body, a Deffkopta head, the pointy arm from the Battlewagon kit, part of a Killa Kan engine and scratchbuilt batteries.

Products: you make the call

Taking feedback from folks and knowing what my time will allow here's how I'll approach the whole mess.  Moving forward I'm only building what I want for myself.  No more speculation.  When I finish the project I'll put up a poll to find out how many folks are interested that as a product.  If enough people want it I'll produce it.  Fore now all these will be on a "commission" basis, so I'll post the price, but you'd need to email me with your request.  I'll invoice you when it's ready, so no store as such.  This will let me take more time to produce better models. 

In the pipeline are an Evil Sunz Weirdboy, Grot Tanks (poll consideration), and a Battlewagon (poll consideration). 

See you soon!

Could the Store be returning?

That depends on you.  After discussion with the family and weighing the pros and cons it will be making a return in the future, all be it in a a limited fashion.  I have a partnership in place for the return of the Hidden Objective markers.  He'll be handling the online sales and manufacturing of the kits and once he's ready I'll post the info you need to get those.  I'm going to refocus my initial idea of providing conversion components and original resin kits, building on what I have already started.

This is where you come in.  As my time is limited I can't just guess at what I think folks want.  I need feedback.  What are you looking for?  I've gotten quite a bit of interest on Grot Mini Scrap tanks, so those are a distinct possibility.  Or what about Orc Truck Conversion kits?  Or maybe some kind of kit for the New Imperial Knight, to give some variety or a "looted" option?
Could it be a comeback?

My point is that I really enjoy building and casting this stuff, it's super fun and I learn a lot.  I'm not going to get rich doing it and I need to maintain a balance.  I want to keep my prices reasonable and not take advantage of the community.  

So make your voice heard!  Comment here or send an email!

Hot Rod Buggies Part 4

I had it in mind to make the body shell on this one a bit more rounded. I built the shell as normal but I added extra bracing in the corners so I wouldn't grind through the panels with the Dremel.  I also angled the front of the cab in rather than squaring it off.

Hot Rod Buggies Part 3

I skipped ahead a bit and finished the body shell.  No real difficulty there.  I also started on the patch and scrap plates.  I'm adding handles and hinges to the doors, made from cut rod and little plates:
