four of five
Good news everybody! Four of five is almost totally complete. Very small things left aside from the base and cut up.
Having posed and fixed the rifle with the hands to the arms I have a little insight. The scale of the hands is a little bigger, I should have minded the scale better. The angle and pose of the left hand is too awkward to appear to be supporting the rifle. Maybe he's changing a magazine. In some angles it looks OK. I guess I could have planned it better. He looks pretty good none the less.
for the Glory of Mars
I also started another 1:35 model. This will be the definitive trooper prototype. I plan for it to be part of the most basic package of the crowd funded project; if that ever sees the light of day. You can see the basic anatomical masses already.
Just had a thought. If these guys are from Mars, shouldn't they have red camo? A strange thing to consider.
Flames of War
I'm also completing a German command and rifleman team which will give me one complete Panzergrenadier platoon. Sure are a lot of those guys in the Open Fire! box set.
