My contribution to the 'Ode to Canon Fodder-Grunt MS GB'
« on: March 20, 2011, 07:53:42 PM »



Presenting my three (yes, three) entries in the 'Ode to Canon Fodder-Grunt MS GB'.

Actually this GB came at the right time as I was in the middle of a backlog clearance (I actually set myself the challenge of snap fitting/sanding/gluing as many as I could in a 7 days- got 4 done in 3-4 hours per night which wasnt too bad given the week I had) so I was already in the middle of a snap frenzy. The GB came up when I was snapping a Gog and a GM at the same time and the rest was history as they say!

The Three Entrants-pics taken on my phone as its quicker to upload to flickr so apologies for the craptastic nature of them!

The GM

The GM Commander

The Gog has been primed but weather is making life frustrating.

As can been seen in the bad photo, I have added a lot of MSG parts to it (Couldnt resist shoulder and a head spike!!) but we will see how that turns out when I start painting (might have to hand paint as its too wet to do anything else

The GM commander is nearly sanded down and is ready to assemble...just have re-sand the legs and the feet guards as I had to putty them up-went a bit far with my initial sanding!!

The GM is my first attempt at pla plating if it can be called that as I dont have any pla plate!! Used a piece of white plastic I found (a lid off something). All it proved really is that I need new glasses and a sharper knife but we will see what it looks like primed

My weapons for the GM

A Beam Lance (MG Dash ?) and a 3 Barrel Rocket Launcher from the GM Snipper (one of my very first builds)


As I mentioned, the weather is my main worry at the moment. This is like the 7 or 8th wet weekend (except for one Saturday last weekend...but it was still cold enough to crack my priming as I found out when I primed the Gog) we have had (pretty well much in a row) so Im resigned to not painting these out unless I re-divert our ducted heating to my mancave (which I will do if I can source a ducting pipe 'splitter' to split one line into two)........mmmmm, warm gas heating in my hobby space!!!

I like the spikes on the Gogg dude. You definitely need that ducting splitter where you're at or your man cave will freeze 5 months of the year.

This one will require some thought as I want to keep it clean (you know, typical officers not getting their hands dirty!!)

Gog painted black......am staring at it now wondering how the hell Im going to do dazzle camo.
Its a little 'split' in the chest/shoulder due to the weather when I primed it but I found a Y splitter for our heating so now my little cave is a warm cave! I dont really see the splitting but the camera brings it up....couldnt be bothered to fix it!

I also must remember to remove the blu tack from the eye area when I take the next set of pics!

Love that you split the ducted heating into your cave. Gogg looking quite silver in that pic.

LOL....yeah, desire to get a pic up+almost dead battery+forgetting to switch flash off= washed out, silver like picture.

Pity was that when I saw it, I was like "Wonder what it would look like all in chrome........"
(Im so easily distracted)

Well done Tristan. That camo is subtle and nicely done, not much bleed that I can see. Maybe the blue would stand out more against the olive on a different coloured b/g?
