  1. Nice start. It sort of seems like you should play up the unbalanced aspect and replace the left arm with a cable or something.

    Also, and this is just a niggle, but the pouch on his right hip... how can he use it? :)

    1. That's why he's got his long left arm - to be able to reach the pouch.

  2. Ka-razy :D

    Love the cables at the back.

    1. You'll be happy to know I'll be adding more of them!

    2. Cool. Are those guitar strings? I've only ever read about it and never used them - can you bend them like regular cables and will they remain in position?

    3. No - they´re a kind of lead wire from a hobby store. Much more flexible.

  3. Really crazy bastard! Some ammo belts would be perfect for the gun arm to give him some more 80s Heavy Metal wickedness.

    1. Yeah - he needs some kind of ammo feed...

  4. Cool! The unbalanced set-up doesn't bother me that much, makes him even more interesting. 40k is full of weird stuff like that.

    1. Yeah that was the whole point - but I think Laspacker wanted him even more unbalanced...

    2. Ah yes, indeed. Misread the first time :D

  5. I don't recognise the head, where is that from?

    I will add my voice to those suggesting an ammo belt. If you can't fit it on the gun perhaps incorporate it into the flesh somehow? That would be cool, would make him a living weapon! :)

    1. I´ll see what I can do ammo-wise... Thanks for the suggestion!

      The head is from the chaos chariot kit.

  6. I was wondering about the head too. I think he looks great. What do you use for the cabling?

    1. Glad you like it. See above for answers to the questions :-)

  7. I looked at it without the ammo belt and thought it must have been a high energy rotator weapon - I'm not sure it needs an ammo belt - just more wires out the back and a sense of an energy store/power plant .

    Looks great at the moment though - I love seeing what you come up with - your mind would be an awesome place to stop into some time!

  8. Haha, the dial should be on his head rather than his shoulder no?
