Well, Dear Readers, I finally got some more Battletech stuff. Unfortunately, I still haven’t gotten my “big” order from the Kickstarter.
Sad mech noises
But, that didn’t stop me from buying some of the pewter Iron Wind Metals battlemechs!
So I am going to share a couple of things with you all today, the repair of my two other Mechs (battle damage, I’m sure), the Atlas and the Mad Cat/Timberwolf, and the easy assembly of the BL-6-KNT Black Knight, a wonderful Inner Sphere mech.
First, the repairs…
I will start with the atlas. One of his arms fell off as well as one of his legs. Additionally the hex base I had for him originally did not work out. It was too small for the Mad Cat so I had to use one of the printed bases. That’s fine.
Next we have the repair of the Mad Cat. This one made me a little mad. One of his lasers, as you look at him, the right side, was being difficult when I tried to glue it back on. It doesn’t help that the part is super tiny and I have big fat sausages for fingers. I ended up pulling out a set of tweezers to be able to hold it in place while it held. You will see what I mean.
Next is the assembly of the Black Knight. I pulled up a YouTube video detailing how to put it together, but the moment I saw them putting the arms on before the arm mounted cannon I turned it off. Here is my step-by-step:
There you have it, Dear Readers.
I hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for when I paint the Black Knight!
Until next time, Dear Readers…
