Apocalypse Blitz Part Two
Started my second set up Apocalypse units tonight – two pulsa rokkits. I’m far enough along and have enough paint on the skullhammas that I won’t be embarrassed to deploy them as is if I don’t finish painting the details before Oct. 2nd. I’m more concerned about having enough time to finish the construction and base painting on these next two units before then so off I went.
My trusty furred assistants Punchy (at left) and Rowdy (hidden at right, he’s hard to see when he’s hiding!) are checking out the base model I’m using for my pulsas.
The booster rockets will be both parts of on I’ll be calling “Sneeky Git” and the main fule tank will be named “Fat Bob”. Here’s the base pieces with a burna Barry boy.
I got some masonite (thanks Chris!) and cut out some appropriate sized bases for the models and glued the main pieces together. I’m using a heavy duty piece of cardboard tubing of the same diameter of the big fuel tank for the “shot” version since I don’t need to worry about a pointed noise on it.
I’ve got the “after firing” pieces cut and hot glued down to the bases and a hut made for Sneeky Git. Here’s a Barry shot and a Skullhamma shot for scale.
Thanks all for tonight, we’ll see where I get tomorrow. I expect the progress on these to go rather quickly as they’re not as detailed or busy as the skullhammas were.
