Right, another update. I find I've been waiting until stuff is finished before posting, which isn't really a requirement of a WIP thread! So here goes!
Now I had the idea of doing a command squad of these bad boys, as nothing says EC more than an eagle headed bike. I was hoping that the new custodes bikes would look like a Bullock pattern, alas not! So I need to figure out the engines, as Sameal's legs include the engines and I don't want all the riders in robes. My current though is casting a cut down deimos exhaust and using that, otherwise it'll be even more expensive......
Now I got one of these with the intention of maybe kit bashing it into a Bullock, not really possible, so I've built it as standard and I have to say I quite like it!!
I used the pilot for the Bullock, so I had to improvise a new pair of legs and well, I am liking this!
I think I might use the Scimitars to represent Skyslayer heavy support, so I might make the pilots more beefy looking, so might go Mk2/3 with the riders. Will probably give them Phoenican helmets, unless anyones got better ideas!!
I am really liking MKII with Phoenician heads! I think I will stick to MKIV with the normal heads and have most of my older MKs with Phoenician pattern helmets, to imply they are more veteran!
I had a few issues with this maniac! I decided the pink wasn't pink enough so I've re-highlighted the edges, so I shall now tidy up the rest of the overspray and finally get this guy done and dusted!!
