The Giant Robot!

well... not that giant really... big bugger, but some of the BTD Invasion Cybermen are the same height... barely a head taller than a normal 28mm figure... anyhoo, Professor Kettlewell's K-1 robot:

bit of a bugger to paint for a quickie really... the living metal (and that's as far as the writers got to naming it) it was made from was nice and silvery and shiney... which is a bugger to shade and still be nice and shiney and there are a lot of nubbins and bits that give shading... I quite like the darker finish mind...

essentially a quick pj (red stripes were a git) to get a November post, still plodding with several half arsed projects, still payday tomorrow so will get the fresh g/s I need... of course that won't change much as the Salute build has started so I really need to start knuckling down and actually doing stuff...
no one hold your breath...

I like them, had forgot about BTD and may add some to my 28mm terminators.

Wow, this is cool. I want to get my hands on one now. Love the K-1 robot.

That came up great! I love the look of vintage robots. Classic Dr Who had some great machines :)

It looks like you've done a pretty decent job of it - even if it did seem a bit tough to paint.

Where did you buy the miniature from ?

Keep on blogging and thanks for sharing,
