I'm guessing that Inso's next DoD entry will include a functional 28mm hoverbike.

Not quite... a functioning motorbike, maybe.

I suggest you have a look because there is not only a functioning motorbike but also a couple of new recruits to the Squat force (with an explanation that goes with them):

Scale pic of the new five-eights but also a bit of progress on the Engineseer again:

I've started to add some details to the arms... I am going for a 'metal-muscle' look to them (a bit like Colossus out of the X men). I've also started to tidy up the next little addition...



Gi6ers sent me a bunch of robot components and it seemed like a good time to start using them (cheers, Matt :) ).

This week, I have used a bit of extra free time to work on the Engineseer. He only needs his head and back-pack sorting and he will be done. I have also added some arms to 'Big Robot' but they are only loose as I will need to remove them to work on the body areas:



As usual, there is more about the Engineseer and other things over at Inso's World (including a rather cool little quad bike that is perfect for 28mm use):

I reckon the Engineseer is finished:



I'll probably wait until Big Robot is finished before I put up a 'group hug' :) .

I've managed to finish a couple of troopers (Flamer and Medic) from the command squad:

I am still ticking along with these... but have had a few distractions. Here's something for the Engineseer:



There's a little bit more info on my blog (including the distraction):

Brilliant conversions I used to have that boxed set cue warm fluffy memories. I still have a few. It is impressive to see what you have done.

Well, it would seem that I have enough time out here in the Falklands to get a bit of sculpting done so I have been busy putting arms on a few Squats; namely the platoon command squad:



... and the first infantry squad:



The tracked heavy weapons are at home and I need a few other components from my bits box to complete the units properly but from a sculpting perspective, the two units are finished except for some details on the heavy weapon controller's wrist unit (which has now been finished but not photographed).

I have started on the next four (the special troops from the second infantry squad) and am very near to finisheing them to a similar standard (mostly just hands/gloves to go).

It almost looks like I will have my first platoon of Squats finished for when I return home... who'd have thought it  :shock: :lmao

Another week and another squad of Squats finished to a similar level as the previous one:



I just need to add a heavy weapon unit and some bits and bobs from my pitsbox when I get home and they will be done. I will have to tidy the whole platoon up yet (a few gaps to fill) but they are all finished apart from that.

I'll pop up a platoon pic at some point... there's more over at Inso's World (in my signature).

Open a shop? I'm not sure that fits into my 'move to Cornwall and be a hippy' plan... :)
