I don’t know anything about warhammer, but this is an incredible, well crafted suit! I can appreciate the attention to detail here and I’m excited to see what else you can make. - Rick
Thanx, I appreciate the comment and the interest. This may not be everybody's cup of tea, but it might give you ideas on how to do something for your build or spark you in another direction.

Got some base plate progress to share. The inside details are almost finished and getting ready to paint. The whole enchilada will get the interior painted before I close it up. Here's where it stands atm

With the top deck on you can see how busy it's going to get underneath

Some of the noodley details and their surrounding area had to get painted before I installed them. Like this 1

The whole thing inside will get flat blacked and dry brushed with various metallics (gold, silver, copper, gunmetal). Still working on the side cladding atm. I have some FRP sheeting left over from a house project that I think will work for the side of the base. It's the white crinkle finish plastic that you put behind the laundry sink. Seems to bend in a curve pretty easy. Stay tuned for more and thanx for looking...

The frp sheet cuts and bends like a dream. I made a template with some paper of 1 of the sections and cut it a little wider and longer than I needed. Being a section of a cone makes it kinda wonky to cut out exact. Once I cut the straight joints, I clamped it up and drilled the holes for the screws. I left all the panels screwed down and trimmed it all at once. Makes for a nice fit like I planned it like that,lol. Still dabateing about the color of the edge. Black like a table top game figure or match it to the metallic gray of the decking. Still a ways off yet but lots of interior to paint and lighting to do. Stay tuned and thanx for looking
