So quick update. First some good news. I have almost assembled my ironclad:
I've left off parts that will hinder painting it, and the 'balloons' can be taken off too. So painting and transporting it shouldn't be too difficult.
But now for some bad news. The thing is too front heavy to stay on its flying base! That's why I'm holding it in the image. Now I don't know if it'll even itself out as I add more parts to it but I'm not hopeful. Especially since there's a bit of a gap in the socket and I'm worried that this might be screwing the whole thing up. If anyone has any advice on rectifying that I'd be very grateful.
God, if I've beslubbered this expensive model up too
But on a lighter note, my own Skyport is beginning to take shape. I'm going with green as their main colour, but I haven't decided if they'll mostly be steel or brass for the metal work. Hell, maybe I'll even try oxidized copper. For their fluff, I'm focusing on making the city a fun place to be; booze, beer halls, casinos, vaudeville...almost like Las Vegas or Atlantic City in the sky!
There's just one issue...I can't quite figure out a name for it yet. It's obviously going to be Barak-something. There's a dwarf word, 'Gorog', that means ale, high spirits and a drinking binge. That was one idea. Another one was 'Hazkal', again meaning ale but also meaning a fiery young warrior. Then there's 'Valdahaz', meaning brewery...see, so many options! Here's a handy dwarf dictionary that I've been using.
If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them.
