WIP – Forest battle – 1

Forest battle is a placeholder title, for a lack of a better name. Chances are good I’ll never go back and change it, though…

France’s GBWC results are in and, unfortunatly, I didn’t make it to the top 3. All the more reason to work even harder for the next one !

I’ve snap-fitted the Dantalion and, while it’s obviously not as rewarding as building, say, the MG Nu ver Ka, it was a pretty quick and fun build. I really like how lean it looks, I’m convinced that’s the best kit I could have chosen for the “ninja” part of this build.

WIP – HG Hi-Mock – 02

Last time we established that big weapon = good. Today, we’ll demonstrate that more big weapons = better. Before that, a small bit of customization on the chest piece, once again heavily influenced by Asrul Hazimin’s excellent Unicorn Buster.

WIP – HG Hi-Mock – 01

I’ve hit a bit of a snag on my Gerbera Tetra build, so I’m posting some pics from an older project.

I’m more of a 1/100 scale guy, but when HLJ sold those guys for around $4 a piece last year I bought, like, 3 of them.

So much potential

 

For those not familiar with the suit, it’s supposed to be a training unit, « piloted » by an A.I., for the human players to fight against. It comes from the “Gundam Build Fighters” universe.

I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with it, until I stumbled upon this custom, by the very talented Asrul Hazimin (more pics on his page).
