+++ Many Carnifexes died to give you this update. +++
I’ve started working on the upper body. There loads and loads of work left to do but I’m extremely pleased with the feel and pose of beast. The fact that I can put it together (apart from the Hades cannons) helps a lot when it comes to visualize where I’m going.
I used four spare carapace pieces from the Carnifex kit to form the torso. The Carnifex kit is awesome and comes with a boat load of extras. Quite remarkable for such an old kit.
The torso will hold the weapon arms and the head (or rather its neck) has been cut down a bit so that it can slide inside the torso. And the plasticard bit on top is there to ensure a snug fit with armoured carapace.
The carapace is still very rough, almost a sketch. But it gives the basic layout and concept. As you can tell, it’s made using old square bases and plasticard. A lot of sculpting remains, both on top and where it connects with the torso.
The model is very front heavy, it lacks a suitable balance. I was contemplating a tail last time around. After putting it together like this I’m convinced that a tail is needed. Let’s dive into the bitsbox and see what we can find there.
Thoughts, ideas and critique are as always most welcome. Please let me know what you think.
