Second half of mold pour tonight. These molds are for the Raubtier chassis, the lizard turrets, and the monkey turrets.

Apparently a scanning electron microscope is necessary to see any lizardy features within the blues. Perhaps the resin castings will show some more daemonic detail.

Naturally, during the extraction process after the first pour I shattered my lizard cannon turret into a few pieces, one of which was lost. The missing piece is, thankfully, the base of the barrel, so it should be possible to insert clay or styrene into the cavity.

Later this week I'll start the sponson molds.

Progress, but no pictures.

Chassis mold is casting.

Turret molds are casting. Autocannon barrel is too slender, so I'm reworking my dragon head version. In general, the reptile heads are too small to catch any detail, but the overall shape is correct.

First half of sponson mold poured. After I get some samples, I'll send them to bezerkmonkey, and he'll decide if his own autocannon barrel should be embiggened.

Second half of sponson mold poured, cured, and tested. Monkey sponsons seem to be casting correctly. Otter sponsons have some air flow issues.

O'man,

Again your genius leaves me speech less!!

How my Chaos legions are crying out for armored support, I'm definitely in the que, hopefully not too far back, to lay my hands on these beauties.

And I would be interested in any and all configurations that you may offer.

Great work, please keep going!

Today I will mail samples to berserkmonkey and my 'patrons' of this particular project.

Samples were well received.

Blues for the other half of the project (embiggened cannon turret, slim freemer sponsons, embiggened monkey freemer turret) arrived yesterday, look good. Will submit the finalized designs to Ninjamagic for bronzing.

Todd Boyce has been discombobulated by what sounds like the flu. Combined with the upcoming GenCon, we're looking at another couple of weeks before the bronzes are available. Connnnn!

Bronzing partially complete. The monkey freemer turret failed investment casting, so there's another delay.

D'oh! What was wrong with it? Barrel thickness (or lack thereof?)

A visit to the metal caster is necessary. I have to take advantage of this opportunity and start the master molding process for the Raubtier. The monkey freemer + monkey cannon sponsons will have to wait for the APC / Sleepy Cow / Semaj master mold. I'm planning on the following production molds:

Chassis
Lizard freemer turret + streamlined cannon sponsons
Dragon cannon turret + streamlined freemer sponsons
Monkey cannon turret + monkey freemer sponsons
