I like the design of the old one...and I like the design of the new one...Hmmm...

There's only one way to decide this...

I agree with Inso - both are great.  Did the old bike survive?  Recyclable as some kind of, er... gunboat?  (Struggling not to use 40K references)

Yes. I've asked the guys downstairs to resin cast in for me so I've got copies to faff about with. Mark suggested a conversion that I might try out and it would be good to do it on something other than the master :erm:

Aside from that, work has now stalled on the bike. I was all fired up thinking "Brandlin's going to love this" but now I'm not so inspired.

You could always work on, you know what, as I can guarantee I'll love it - the start you've already made looks great!

Awww hugs to Kev cos he's feeling unloved.

I did offer to buy the old grav bike from you and have it cast years ago, so I did try and help!

As to inspiration, I'm pretty sure you don't need affirmation from me! But to be clear I said I liked the new bike, great to see the beginning of a grymn rider. I can't see quite enough of the full new bike, but is it based on the flier you sent me that I made into my 2009 DOD entry? Looks like the same starting point?

Make the new bike and I'll buy a handful. Finish the old one and I'll buy dozens!

See I even put a big happy smiley next to the new speeder bike!

What's in the box Sally?

"Kev went out, so i wandered over to his workbench"

Best thing you've done all year, in my limited experience of what you have done all year!

not sure if that is a compliment or an insult.........
A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

I wouldn't gain anything by insulting you....

I for one find great joy in looking at Kev's wips, so as far as I'm concerned you have done me a great service.

Insulting Kev, on the other hand... Is fair game  muahahahaha

From those pics I'm hoping that the new year will bring:

1) a full platoon of colonial marines; and

2) Dino riders!

Please say it's so....

I wouldn't think it was Grymn...maybe another one of the children in powered armour (Luke maybe?).

It looks cool so far, who/what ever it is :mrgreen:.

Not Luke, because if I remember correctly he was the one piloting a mech.

But the style of the wip mini does look to fit with Space Meg more than with grymn.
