Custom stim injector (support system)

Post#1 » Nov 03 2017 01:35

Image
Materials needed:
Greenstuff
extra "flying" base sprue (or any clear plastic cylinder)
Glitter paint (I used a green glitter Walmart brand ~$3)
Colored BIC sharpie('liquid' color, I used green)
Black paint (or black sharpie, color is preference)
Magnet (optional)

Notes. I put a layer of black on the clear cylinder to prevent Greenstuff being seen as green through the cylinder before I started using Greenstuff.

On the bottom cylinder used the green glitter glue first, then colored it with the green sharpie.

That is such a cool idea!

May I ask for a picture of it attached to one of your models? I'd love to see it! :D

My models paint jobs are works in progress. I been working on both models for the past month for tomorrow's local event Image
I painted my first miniature 9/4/17 (an ethereal), I'm no pro. I started Warhammer end of July as a hobby.

Like the stim idea and the colour scheme :smile:

Looks a bit big and I'm not sure how much sense it makes as exterior support system since it's most likely something that gets injected into the pilot and not into the battlesuit. :D
But nice work still. ;)

Actually I think that would make the least amount of sense if it went straight into the pilot because, how could a pilot have 20 life for a storm surge? Basic infantry would want to have a stem injector. It's an option only for robots. I think the stim injector helps the robot stay intact. Maybe it's like WD-40, liquid nanites, oil, or the liquefied hopes and dreams of those who oppose the greater good.*shrugs*

It looks a little bit big because it was an experimental project I slapped together on a whim of an idea. I lost my first attempt (found and present on commander in picture). Since time wasn't on my side, everything from paint job to stim injector was a rush job. Not a bad rush job if I say so myself, even though it's far from perfect.:)

Really nice work.

I would mount it in an horizontal way perhaps on the back.
Military is always trying to keep as small as possible. ;)

But the injector itself looks really good.

I like your explanation a lot! But, if that was the case, shouldn't it go into the reactor, or engine, or main chassis? Injecting WD-40 into the missile sight might not help! :P

Fair enough. I guess they simply really didn't think about it as much (also things like Stormsurges didn't exist at the time they introduced Stim Injectors).
Your explanation definitely works for an unofficial explanation though so consider my comment void. I'd attach it somewhere else then though. More central. Injecting nanites to repair damage anywhere on the suit so far off of the center shouldn't make much sense still. Especially not attached to the aiming module for the missiles. :P

Ooh, I must attempt this. It always bothered me that the one system had no physical representation. It ought to be visibly equipped, even though realistically it would be deep inside.

Sweet, if possible I would like to see how your version turned out :).
