15mm Nuclear Shrimp Hulk Suit

Those great guys at Nuclear shrimp sent me some 15mm samples to check out.

I decided to built the hulk suit first.

Straight forward build, though some skill is required.The fit is good but I would recommend pinning.
Pinning is always recommended as it aids in helping to glue the parts + being sturdier.( I use 1mm stainless steel rods to pin ). Just minor flash & some minute bubbles found & both are easily fixed.

I decided to convert the pose and do a mini diorama. Terrain is made of plastic sprue & usb cable wire. I imagined an mobile suit ) infantry support patrol in a urban setting ( ala  Titanfall ) . Suit is manouvering down a slope of girders & concrete.

All the joints were cut & separated , then pinned to allow maximum flexibility ( I even drilled & pinned the elbow & wrist ) You need a lot of skill & patience to separate the knees as you can easily damage the parts. I like the resin they have used as it is easily shaped.

Flat cable was used for detail. Damaged milliput extra armour , GS baggage & paper straps.
Though more eye candy , I did not put hydraulic cables on the outside as I always felt that they would be too fragile in a firefight.

I added aerials & may add an anti personnel m/c gun. I will glue the hatch semi open to reveal the windscreen underneath.

The model reminds me of a Mechwarrior Bushwacker & I would use it as a Primaris Space Marine Dreadnaught also. Can't wait to see the heavier version.

I put size comparisons . See my other posts for more pics.

Black Earth 6mm UEF Hulk Suits

Hello again all started to paint the Blackearth 6mm suits for 15mm.
Still a wip.
Grey primer, dark brown wash, dry brushing with 3 different shades of grey. Then shading with watered down light grey. Detail & edging in white.

Nice minis to paint with loads of detail.

Can imagine what the 15mm version will be like when it ships from their KS plus there's a heavier version also. I saw the 3D prints and they look impressive.

I'm thinking about using them for my SDZ faction ( Sons & Daughters of Zion )
I have some 15mm IDF decals that will fit the bill perfectly.

I changed my mind they are great for AEWW2 eg. to play Konflict 47.
Here they are next to Clockwork Goblin US light walker & German power armour & Psc 15mm Germans.They look great ...

Does anyone know where I can find a couple of Clockwork Goblin Bazooka & Panzer Schreck Power armour teams, please ?

Thanks for your comments

Black Earth 6mm UEF Hulk Suit review + conversions

Hello again all,
I finally built the Black Earth 6mm UEF Hulk Suits and whilst I was at it decided to convert 4 of them.

I must say these minis assemble very nicely & can be converted easily enough.
Both their shape & detail is very good with almost non existing flash or mould lines.
As I said before they would make great 15mm Power Armour or small mecha.

There are 2 fiddly parts , the rocket launcher & the ammo belt.

The rocket launcher has a small spigot which should be inserted in the shoulder notch.
For the love of me I could not fit the ammo belts in place, so after a lot of trials I decided to fit 2 mm strips of flat cable .

This is the first post black-earth-6mm-15mm-mini-size.html

For some reason they remind me of Hussars ,Imagine having a company of these charging enemy lines ... charge of the metal brigade ??!!

I must get more ....

Thanks for your comments.

15mm to 28mm Necromunda game board Part 4

Hello again all,
Haven't posted in ages.
Had these prints for ages & decided to build blocks .
These will add top levels or can be used as corridor walls.
Very straight forward builds. I designed them to fit into each other to reduce space.

Thanks for your comments. Z
