With the Winter Challenge looming ever closer, I’ve been busy trying to get everything painted in time – so late night painting session the night before for me!
The latest unit to roll off my production line are my much-feared Auxilia:
They’ve had my usual colours for my PanO (Mechrite Red washed with Agrax Earthshade, re-highlighted up in 3 stages with Mechrite, then Wild Rider Red and finally Fiery Orange).
Of course, the real ‘stars’ of this unit are the Auxbots, who regularly put the fear into one member of our group!
And here are the whole team together:
Keeping with the theme of Ghost:Synchronised Remotes, I built my Aleph Devas and their Devabots:
With the bots themselves, they have a slightly odd construction in that the top-heavy torso piece attaches to the legs on an incredibly small contact point, and so I had to do a lot of careful pinning to get them to attach with any degree of solidity, although it did mean that I’ve had to leave a rather uncomfortable looking pin exposed from it’s “lower data output port” (*ahem*)
I may try and disguise it by clipping it short, although I’m worried the stress/impact of clipping it short may cause the join to shatter and break, so I’m currently undecided – the other option would be to disguise it with greenstuff or just leave it in place and make it appear part of the model (not my favourite solution!)
The next plan is to paint these chaps up, since they can form part of a PanOceania Sectorial list along with the Auxilia. Look out for them in the next blog post!
