and another kickstarter omni swap. I got a salvage Adder, and one of the prime is enough. The first set of arms is swapping the barrels on the arms it comes with for missiles. It's a fit for the E, but I think I'd be forgiven for trying to handwave it as an A or C

The second come from the maelstrom. They're a bit oversize; still, I suspect it'll look good painted, and could work for for the B, D, and maybe K configs.

A pair o' death commandoes (rifleman, cataphract) and the puma from above, painted now.

Edit - the green somehow bled all over the photo, including places it isn't in real life. weird.

A while back I got the wrong version of an agrotera, and not even all of that cast. When life gives you lemons, ragequit, then come back later and make lemonade.

And more adders. If I get another in salvage boxes I'll be cross. The arms from the original sculpt are just sad, so they were replaced with falconer bits.

I'd appreciate feedback on whether you prefer green base or green on black, it'll influence later painting.

Death Commandos. Did some mods on the Ti Ts'ang, adding barrels for the chest lasers as it was the lance pack sculpt.

I prefer the darker green on the Jade Emperor, but it's oil based and a pain to use. I might mix n match between them later.

Jihad era Fox's Teeth. I'm considering giving them Davion guard stripes on their left sides to make it clear they're FedSuns, but am concerned I wouldn't pull it off.

Jumping Panther and Daimyo (3070 Sabers). Building the legs on the latter was miserable to get right, but I'm generally happy with how it turned out.

Thinking of covering the rod on the panther with a "smoke" cotton ball. Wouldn't be hard to take off if it didn't work.

Comstar/WOBbie Crab and CerberusGunslinger Did some chest work on the big guy so the mediums were more than bee-stings.

Society Pariah. The metallic I've been using lately is greenstuffworld's hologram, but it doesn't seem to show up well on my phone's camera.

Gargoyle E, for when a clan commander needs their best blunt object.

edit - the laser barrels should probably be shorter. Screw it, overcompensation Go!!!

anyone have an idea on how to convert a plastic hunchback IIC to a HB IIC 3? (The one with three ATM 12s.)

If I can't figure that out, my second one will probably be modded to a -5SP/-5SS with magnets to swap between the two

I would not want to run into that hunchback.  Great mods all around, really creative.

Timber Wolf E/Z.

I suppose I could have put the boxes where the boxes I cut off went, but I wanted to emphasize the changes. Mickey mouse ears for the win...

That's supposted to be a Lyran Royal orion. It's a bit bluer than it looks in the photo, but I don't think it worked quite right.

The other is a Death Commando victor. Black and glowing green, that's how you know the stealth armor is working.

maybe a dark grey under the gold, instead of black?
