Leeko's Minis
« on: December 31, 2010, 02:01:11 AM »
So I got rulebooks, TROs, and minis for the holidays this year. Today I returned from my local hobby shop with the necessary materials to finally start assembling them. Images spoilered below with the three that are finished and my work space. As you can see, that's a Night Gyr, a Summoner, and a Hellbringer. :)

I'll be posting more pics when my other two are assembled, then later on when I paint them.

[spoiler][/spoiler]

My tools:

Zap-a-Gap Medium CA+ superglue
Gale Force One brand clippers for cutting the individual pieces out of their sprues
Gale Force One brand files for taking off mold lines on the minis and superglue from my hands
An old issue of Game Informer, because I don't want to get superglue and pewter dust all over my desk :P
Good lighting!

Might have to change the name of the thread to everyone's minis  ;D

[spoiler]

[/spoiler]

My Templar needs the shield glued back on as well as the SRM for the Raven. I've also got an Annihilator, Daishi, Puma, and Owens which all need to be put back together. I also have a Madcat but its scale seems to be off, its as tall as the Commando in the first pic, and I have a smaller Atlas (which might just be in the same scale as that Madcat).

These were all put together and painted back in 2000-2001ish. Eventually I'll go in and repair and paint the ones that need it.

One of my favorites. I like to pair it up with an Uziel too. Despite having an Atlas there ready to go, I've actually never used one. I know on paper it would do rather well. But the BV limitations never let me get it out to use.

And I just saw that Stone Rhino you have too, one of my favorite Clan assault 'Mechs. Too bad the reseens are hideous. You're lucky to have one of the originals! :-\

Thanks for the heads-up on that one, completely missed it myself. :-[

Replaced it with a censored version :P
