After a bit of a dry spell I finally got around to finishing my drop pod.
I really enjoyed this project. This was my first time working with a drop pod, and it was a pain (just like everyone said). Despite some frustrations with assembly, things turned out well. The plasticard fins were also a first with this project. They ended up being the most time consuming part of the whole ordeal, but they really make the model stand out. I still need to purchase a dedicated flying base for my drop pod, but that is currently on the back burner.
Here is my recently completed Heretek Magus. I built him from parts leftover from Phil's Kataphron Destroyers. The body was constructed out of green stuff and a bit a plasticard tubing. As I constructed the model, I would push the parts into the greenstuff and let it set. Once the greenstuff was solidified I would pop the parts out and re-glue them into place. The tentacle for a right arm is the only part that comes from a chaos kit.
My inspiration was a Magus who idealizes Soul Grinders as the perfect fusion between daemon and machine.
