Yeah, Pretty Much...
This time around I've got a small look into one of the new units coming out in the next version of the fandex; Luceo Rollers. These little guys are essentially scrapped-together drones that carry an explosive around with them. To accomplish this I purchased some models from Black Cat Bases which I reviewed over at MWC this week. This is a pretty simple conversion, but works in a basing strategy that turned out well. More after the jump.
First I clipped out the pegs on the cameras as I wanted them a little less top-heavy and carved out the indention on the base of the treads to help make these things shorter:
Next I took some bomb-looking bits from my bits box and cut off the handles on them:
After gluing the model together I applied the bombs to them like so:
Now for the basing, I wanted these little guys kicking up some dirt, so I laid the basing down, first:
Then I slowly built up the gravel using layers of glue one line at a time:
Finally, I glued the Luceo Rollers onto the bases and did a bit of touchup on the basing to make it line up with the treads:
That's all for now. More on the way!
