I really like the progress on the Abbatoir of Death, not so keen on the Orb though. I think the whole thing could be a bit more refined. What kind of card are you using for the Abbatoir?

Thanks Haarken,

The card for the Abattoir is actually from a box no thicker than you would get from a pack of cereal... go figure...
I think the reason I was able to do it is more to do with the glue I've been using lately. It's Gel Super Glue. It doesn't pour out, you squeeze it out like toothpaste but in a very fine nozzle like normal superglue so you get good control and the stickability is just as good.

I need to find something for the tentacle/tendrils underneath (Tyranid Sprues again!) and I would like to try to make it more like the 40K Monolith on the top somehow. I have just the perfect crystal for it.

Argh, I'm almost not wanting the deal on my androids to come through.
Mixing it up with some old orcs I ought to have like three warrior units.
Bad Jam, bad bad Jam.

But Erik Chaos Androids are just easier but not really important. Look at the Raiders Necrons I wish I had before starting. Orks are every bit as good and far more common. I would prefer to use some Chaos Androids for Pariahs and my Orks for Warriors without any moding and then mod some Ork Immortals just like some of the Raiders articles.

Ok, the Orb...

How about I cut the bum off it and remove the head and somehow come up with a frame for the orb something like this...

Hm, that's a thought. But then I also want some more Baneblades...

How about cutting of both bum and replace the scorpion-tail with it. And that moved to the top of the "bum", thus reaching further around the sphere.
Something like this:

PUI

Now you're talkin'.  How about some thing strips of plastic wrapping around the orb from the back... some sort of supports or containment mechanisms. The thin plasticard is very bendable. And then you could put gubbins on the strips.

Ahh, O'man, I see I have now got those mammalian nipples ridged...

Yes, a half circle of plasti-card (I have none) or something similar coming from around the back is what I have in mind.

Sorry Erik but I have other plans for the Destroyers Bum for another possible model.
But then I also want some more Baneblades...

:))  Yes, Baneblades... good!  :oo:

Now's the time to chip in with any more comments guys before I go ahead with the bum transplant op.

Indicentwaterymammal is correct, esp if you apply heated air to the bending, so it stays in (bent) shape.

Bloody hell Erik! Thank goodness I figured this sentence out in time... I thought you were still talking about Ottermans nipples. It's far too early in the morning for me. It's gona' be a looong day at work.  :))

The bum-ectomy has been performed. I have found a likely piece of plastic (20x20mm Inf base Sprue) and bent it in the best shape I am able (not glued on yet). It's 50/50 wither the patient will pull through or not... what do you honestly think?..

Option #1

Option #2 (This is Erik M's Option that after looking at it I quite like.)

Hm... That sprue bit look a bit as if embracing the sphere. Not sure if hugging is what I think of when thinking Necron... But if it showed a bit more distance and also more spherical it might work?

Yeah, hugging not very Necron. I think it may be too short. Pitty, now I have to find something better.

After idly mucking around while TacComming I picked up this model again and hit on another idea...

Option #3

I think I am just too tired tonight. I better go to bed or the next option will have the cut off bits for fins... Hey! That's not bad!..  :tongue:
