15mm Shadow Hawk WIP

 Hi guys

Have added a shadow hawk and thunderbolt to my 15mm BT project, a fair few print lines in these prints, think I may have something lose in my z axis, decided to start work on the Shadow Hawk, I really liked that mech in the BT PC game (not so much in MW5) will be doing her as a Kurita ride, had to give it a bit of a sanding to lessen the print lines, and replace the antenna and auto cannon, which didn’t print properly, and fixed some areas with green stuff, then sprayed black with a zenithal over sprayin grey, and a white dry brush.

Battlemaster, thunderbolt and nightstar finished (6mm)

 Hi guys

Finished the first 3 6mm mechs for my 2nd mercenary company, this company is based on one of my MW5 merc companies with multi coloured mechs, some have hero mech colour schemes, I changed others, going for a jungle theme with the basing, the other merc company has the purple/sand colour scheme, hoping MW5 players may recognise a couple of the colour schemes in the company when it’s finished, if I’ve done them justice, the Battlemaster has a hero scheme, the thunderbolt and nightstar have my own schemes.

Kurita Mechs finished

 Hi guys 

Calling this batch of 6mm mechs done for my Kurita force, will be adding to this force, but will play around with a few red/black/white/buff colour schemes for variety.

Received my first Iron Winds metal mechs today, bought 6 inner sphere mechs, picked them by looks mostly, my knowledge of BT mechs is mostly focused around the BT PC game and MW5, so apart from the Atlas I don’t know much about the others, I’ve got most of the plastic catalyst games mechs, these will expand the collection nicely. 

Have also printed some more 15mm (1/100 scale) BT mechs, the last 4 I printed (the unbased ones) have had some really bad print lines, couldn’t work out why, but finally realised I had moved my printer to another table, which wasn’t stable, will see if moving it back will improve the next print, I’ll get the dremel out and sand down the print lines, then add any detail I sand off.
