Well, I just spent my last cent on bits in orders over the past 2 days, so I imagine everything will arrive within a few weeks. Hopefully after my first round of exams!

Then I will undoubtedly neglect my studies on a 4 day binge of hacking, kitbashing, and gluing where I forget to eat and sleep, and will probably soil myself.

My girlfriend will report me missing and hopefully check to see if I have a life insurance policy she can cash in on.

I do not.

Haha, FINE! I gotta actually do something to deserve it, right?

Exciting looking stuff venomlust, I look forward to the results.

One thing to bear in mind is that terminator hands are larger than power armour ones, so if you do use the Cataphractii chainaxes you might find that the size of the hand looks a little too big? I would just bear that in mind

Thanks! I'll definitely keep that in mind. If I'm spending all this money and time on these bastards, they should be as close to perfect as possible. Improper proportions of any sort would drive me nuts.

I know what you mean! I have similar feelings about proportions for my EC. If I'm paying forgeworld an obscene amount of money, they better look perfect!

But, if you like the chainaxes that much, you could just get a power armour hand and cut the two parts above and below the terminator hand and just stick them onto the power armour hand? Then you've got the chainaxe but it's also got a sensibly proportioned hand?

The only problem there is that unless you pin it, you're essentially pre-breaking the weakest part of the model, which often frustratingly breaks anyways. Though better that than disproportionately large hands.

I'll be pinning the components, for sure. Takes patience and a steady hand, but not too difficult.

I'll probably be using the wfb skullcrusher forearms. The shoulder joint is tricky because it's rounded, so that will take some modification.

Eh, I didn't find it too hard to chop the ball into a flat surface when I made my Juggerlords. Just remember that it's easier to chop off too little than too much, when trying to figure out the angle you want the arm askew from the body in the end.

I also have some poster-mounting putty, so I can use that to position parts before cutting and gluing 'em.
