Agreed, the Fireblade Longstrike mod is inspired. Could make for a good Shadow War operative. :)

Glad you like it :)

Modelling has always been my main interest in the hobby and ATT is a great nexus of conversions, so it's nice to know I can inspire too :biggrin:

I really need to get my 'Advanced stabilisation system' back in gear though, figure out how I'm going about the painting since I've got a couple of models just waiting for that stage.


Quick progress update on the *Shark.
So much sanding, touch-ups and even more sanding... I'll be retired before I finish this one it feels like.

I keep returning to making infantry and characters whenever I get fed up, so.. spoiler warning, I'll be putting a few more of those up soon.
Might also unveil the custom flyer I was working on for the ATT '16 challenge if I can get over my feelings on that model, almost threw it away in disgust because of the amount of sanding I was doing on it :dead:


Longstrike Hammerhead
Rear hatch had to go to make room for the souped up internals and cooling. Also had to replace the sensors, as that bit went missing..
Will be doing some more add-on armour along the center ridge and on the engines. I need to figure out if (and how) I'll be doing the skyray parts, and whether I want to do anything else.. probably leaving the side hatches as is.

I love the Shark, and the Hammerhead. They look amazing.

Aye, that set up on the back door is smart and a great way to distinguish basic hovertank over the real frontline fighter. :)

Skyray
And a bit of progress on the armoring.

Railrifle and spotter operatives
I.. don't like the Ethereal model packaged with the getting started boxes. Their underarms are too wide and long proportionally, their feet are gigantic and they aren't even in the same style as the other Ethereals..
Heretical, I know. From now on you may reach me at La_Miond@Farsight.Enclaves

So I shaved off the caste emblem and replaced it with the one from their belt buckle.
Then I used the circular gizmoTM on their hip as the new buckle, and replaced their heads and arms.
Gave them pants, and shaved the feet down.. I'll be hiding the remaining hints of the wierd style when I base them.

That's actually quite clever - subtle converting. Liking these figures a lot :D

Definitely getting ideas for Water Caste envoys too, besides Air Caste
