Yes, I love sentinels. They're such beautiful models, and I wish I had some way to use them myself.
Agreed. One of the finest kits GW make.
So despite the terrible state my room (or indeed, the whole house) is in on account of major renovation work (which is dragging on for too freaking long), I've still been moving ahead with this project. It's tough having to work on the floor whist your room is being used as storage space but it can't be helped.
To recap, this is how the force looks in it's current state:
There's still one Valkyrie and a couple of Sentinels to make. And I still have one more squad of Scions and two Tauroxes to get before this 'section' is gathered and assembled. One Valkyrie (the painted one I bought on eBay) is missing a wing mounted landing pad and I can't remember where I put the damn thing. However, it'll either turn up or I can replace it so there's no stress there.
There is however, another problem that is stressing me out and unlike the one above it can't be fixed. Let me show you all what it is. Here's the front end of one Valkyrie:
And here's the front end of the other:
Anyone see the glaring mistake I made with the first one? That's right. I forgot that middle thing, whatever the hell it is. And it's too far gone to go back now. Not without severely damaging the parts beyond repair. So that's one Valkyrie with a missing landing pad, one with a glued up rear ramp, and one with an incorrectly assembled front end. Things could be going a lot better if I'm honest.
This is what happens when I don't have a desk to work on and have to lay around on the floor like an animal. Mistakes get made. Maybe I should save all this for the new year.
