Taurox Update

Well, just a quick update today.  I am swamped with casting for Mad Robot so all I can do right now is share what I recently received in the mail...

It's the new 6-wheel conversion kit for the Taurox.  It is made and sold by Blood and Skulls Industry and it looks perfect for what I want to do with it.

My plan is to do 2 Tauroxes; the first will be a standard size "gun-truck", opened topped, using Ork Trukk Wheels instead of the treads.  Those wheels give a very custom look to the vehicle and I think they look cool.  I will be using a set of my upcoming Predator Personalities heads for the crew on this one.

The second Taurox will feature the 6-wheel conversion kit, shown above, and will also involve extending the back of the vehicle to hang over the rear wheel.  This version will also be open topped and will serve to be more of a standard troop transport.

Well, that's it for now.  More progress and pics in the next weeks, once I get out from under all this casting work.

The war goes on,

Mecha Front - A Game of Robots

Throwing a shout-out to my friend Jon Paulson and his new game...Mecha Front.  Do you like massive robots blasting away at each other across a war-torn battlefield?  Then Mecha Front is for you!  I did some play testing and it is awesome.

Check it out HERE!

Born Again...

Hello, true believers.  I have climbed out of my pine box, broken through the topsoil, and clawed my way back to return to the blogosphere, a man with a mission.

Please excuse my 2 year absence, I've been busy running a minis company called Mad Robot Miniatures.  If you haven't checked it should

With the new 40K IG codex releasing...and failing...I have rekindled the hobby flames and have started, in earnest, to jump back in with both feet.  I will be getting back to where I left off, doing conversions and one-offs and such.

Just spent a lovely evening putting together one of the new DaNamian Jungle Fighters kits by Mad Robot.  These will be releasing in about 3 weeks or so.

A small way of jumping back in but, worry not, I have 2 boxes of Scions and a Tauros that are just begging to be ripped apart and improved upon.

I hope you'll come back next time and rejoin me on this journey.

The war goes on,
