Well, my first attempt hasn’t been particularly well received, which is a shame.
The main criticisms are:
the base isn’t custom enough
the backpack is too large.
The first isn’t really an issue, as adding additional customisation is always part of the plan, but the overlarge backpack (and axe), though quite 40Kish and overblown steampunk, is a valid criticism.
I am, therefore, going to try looking at using Rosie as the main base model, adding green stuff robes, using a cutdown marine backpack with another devastator servo-arm and the smaller maxmini steampunk axe where her wrench is.
Ok, I snapped, I suspect I won’t get time, but it might actually give me some motivation to get things done 🙂
I’m going for a female enginseer for my guard force, having read Ciaphas Cain for the nth time recently. It’s mostly going to be a simple kitbash, though I’ll have to wait for several of the parts.
I’m going to use Sascha Dubois from the Chronoscope line as the base model, and repose the left arm slightly to hold a chain axe, and use a gothic packpack with a slightly converted servo arm from a missile launcher devastator for a more slim, elegant look. I’m also mounting her on a techy clockwork base.
Nothing too complex, but I hope it’ll look really effective.
