Will be interesting to see what you do with them.  I must say though, that I don't like the design.  I don't care much for space marines in general, but I liked the look of the previous termies, particularly the helmets.  They made me think of badgers.

I'm not a fan of the previous termies... but that's just how I roll (so I can understand that it is very much a taste thing) :)

Anyway... I have got some now and here is an assembled torso next to an existing Exo:



I reckon there's enough space for some stumpy legs under that torso :)

Thought for a moment he had a mono-wheel in place of legs, mekboy style.

These are looking good. will be interesting to see how it progresses.

It will be another few weeks before I can get any hobby time in... I've just moved home and am in the process of getting some of the more immediate jobs done (like making things watertight and draft free... and emptying out all of the stuff the previous owners left behind).

Hopefully, these miniatures will get some love rather than languishing in the boxes they are packed in :( .

I am on terminal leave until mid January when I officially end my contract (on my birthday... YAY! Double celebration :) ).

I have a nice amount of time to sort stuff out and think about a new job...

... hopefully something I can sort out in February :o .

I've no idea what yet... but I'll pretty much try anything as long as I don't have to travel very far :)

It's been a while but here is the latest WIP for the Terminator suit. The head is loose (and will be replaced with a better one), the fists will get lightning claws, and the crotch/legs will be getting more armour... but it's the first WIP from my new house and I'm happy with it so far:

Cheers... I'm a little further along now; beefed up legs done, just the crotch area to add armour to and then a general tidy up and he'll be done:

One step closer :) . The legs are finished and tabbed, ready to go for casting :) . As you can see from the picture, they are designed to fit in one way only (so adjustment would need to be made to turn the body, if you wanted to do that). I have also shown that the legs fit other bodies from the same kit... now it's just a case of getting them cast up :o ...

Thanks to SDKFZ (an excellent tank builder on another forum) and his excellent Hanomag scratchbuild for a Chimera... I have started converting a 1/35th Tamiya Hanomag half track. So far I have glued the top and bottom of the hull together and then cut down the centreline of the kit. I then cut out a segment about 2cm from each side. The idea is to shorten and widen the kit. So far so good. All the cutting has been done and I have cleaned things up. I have also put in a lot of battens so that I can join everything together (they still need trimming but they need to dry at the moment). The next job is to put in a 1cm spacer down the middle and then assemble the hull. Here is my little workspace while my house is in disarray:



Note... the port is sitting minding it's own business... :)

I cleared the port away... well... I drank it so it is much the same thing really :D

Here's where I am at with the Hanomag pattern Chimera (obviously VERY WIP still):

In order to create a full review, I have fitted the legs to all of the torsos from the Tartaros terminator sprues and am in the process of building my little Wolverine unit. Here is where I am at so far :) :



The white balls are 8mm acrylic beads.

It's been a slow week but I am getting the details put on the Hanomag Pattern Chimera. I've added hatches, a few details to the turret and the start of the front detail. Ticking along... :) :
