I finally got started on building some minis and models for my Scifi game I've been wanting to play (Gruntz) so I figured I'd start a thread so I could post pic's of my builds!
Here is a UD12 Chickenhawk Drop Ship, Fire Team troops, Gun Drone, Blue Sun Bio Diesel Container and a Qantas Cargo Container, that I built today! Also the Gruntz Rulebook!
I plan on making some more gun drones next so I can field them in groups of three along side fire teams of six troops! Also I'm going to give the drop ship a couple sets of rocket pods from Mel's Underwing Weapons pack so it can defend itself a bit!

Thanks! Lol definitely a ton of fun to be building again, I'm also excited to finally get a Scifi table top game going lol. I just picked up two white 18"×24" acrylic (plexiglass) sheets this morning to mount road tiles to, from World Works Games, after I laminate them!
Here is an updated pic of the Chickenhawk after I put two sets of rocket pods on the wings this morning:

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
