Thanks guys for the replies. It's funny, my hobby jive has been running on such a fevered pitch lately, that there's still comments coming in about projects that in my mind are ages ago, but when I look back it's only a couple pages back.
I'd love to continue work on the truescale first claw, but I'm still waiting on bits for Talos and Xarl to arrive from my favorite bits site. So, here are some replies.
@Zeller: Ah, gotcha, and yes, I too think the shot trap is a little high due to the extra layer of plasticard. I might consider building a protection of it. Thanks!
@ColdWinter: The same way you do your pinning. It couldn't be simpler: you drill a hole 1mm wide with your hobby drill, cut a piece of 1mm paperclip, glue it in with superglue and stick the other end in some cork.
@Teetengee: Nope, my Variel has a favorite corpse, which he'll drag along for weeks and experiment on. Good point. I'll sculpt some more flesh on him and paint him 'fresh'-er than the zombie-bit might suggest.
@A Kvlt Ghost: Thanks for the tank info! Yeah mate you need to keep up, I hobby faster than my shadow.
@MrBear: Thanks mate! How's the 33rd?
@Midnight Runner: well I can see you really like my stuff, because you just spend your entire days worth of likes on my thread.
@Loken86: You're mot welcome Loken86, happy to be of help.
@kizzdougs: I like Variel the best too, to be honest. He's super creepy. And you also built a Cyrion (or even a whole First Claw)? WHERE?
Also, another question: does anyone know if Variel kept a shoulder plate red and/or kept a chapter symbol of the red corsairs on his armour? I thought it'd be a cool idea if I kept his left pad red, with a RC transfer on it...
