@Ryuken76 and Multiyogibear Thank you very much guys, that part turned out much better than I could have hoped for.
I think I'd like to try it again at some point maybe with a slightly different pattern or something

^^Thank you very much, and it was a lot of fun to build that's usually why I participate in contests and group builds :D

Showcase / Hyakuri Bastion

So this is my completed entry into StryderPrime's 2017 Summer Contest, I've named it Hyakuri Bastion.
Which I think may be a slight misnomer at this point after all my revisions to the original plan.

Anyway per my original goal being to build a ground pounding variant of the Hyakuri that could at the very least stand on its own feet, with a little inspiration from the Graze Ritter.
It feels like I got that done pretty well, overall I didn't win or even place but that' honestly perfectly fine, I had a lot of fun building the kit and I think its a pretty unique entry on my shelf.

More Progress! which is good because I'm running out of time for this one.
Anyway, got some primer, paint, decals, weathering and flat coat on there.
For primer I used Vallejo German Grey, and for paint I used Vallejo Ferrari Red, three shades of grey: Engine, Light, and Sea, and for metallics I used Vallejo Chrome, Steel, and Copper. The decals are a rather mix and match affair, after that I weathered a little bit with a Tamiya weathering set. All followed up with a Vallejo Matte Coat.

I'm pretty pleased with how its looking right now,

Nice work! the weathering you've done adds a lot of depth  :)

^^Thank you very much!

Been kind of goofing around with overlapping armour made out of pla-plate, I thought it would be a good look for the side skirts.
So I scratch built these out of thin sheets of plaplate and attached them with a magnet. After getting them on the hips I figured I would check out how it would look with the shoulder and hip armour swapped and weirdly I think it actually may look better for it.

From there I tacked on a few more thrusters under the shoulder and hip armour (they're very swap-able at this point) and built some aggressive elbows in the vague-styling of a tanto blade.

So I've been working on this almost constantly since the last WIP post but I suck at keeping it updated properly.

I've toyed with the idea mounting the machine guns off of the backpack for a gun cannon type look, but I tossed that idea
It just didn't feel like a good fit. Anyway, from there I've tried to re-sculpt a few things like bulking up the lower legs and I've added a panel line to the thigh to disguise the seam line there. I'd like to think that I've made a few tweaks to the head sculpt to give it a more aggressive look.

On a side note, I'm pretty pleased with how well it can stand up on its own.

This is my entry into StryderPrime's summer contest, so with the rules to contest being that you can only use non-gundam frame IBO kits
I've settled on building with a HG Hyakuri that I already had on hand.

My plan is to shuffle around the parts to create some sort of ground-pounding variant of the Hyakuri. So a big part of that is that I want a version that can stand on it own without a display base so it'll have to be slimmed down considerably in the back pack area. I've really only worked on the torso and up so far. but I've borrowed some ideas from here and there the Graze Ritter being one specifically, so sticking with that knight theme I think I'm gonna call it Bastion.

Nice work! Just a hint of grime everywhere really works wonders on the GM :D

^^Thank you very much. It certainly felt like a very confusing situation for me and it honestly made me feel a lot better just having written it all down kind of gave it a sort of order.

I agree with you on the rifles and I wish I would've had more time to give the rifles and shield a bit more depth

It has taken me a long time to write this, I have a lot of mixed feelings about this kit after the happenings of the last two weeks. This kit was always intended as my entry into IAGs 2017 contest; I didn't place or anything like that but I think I still had a lot of fun participating in the contest.

I had been at home visiting my family and painting their house for a few weeks during the middle of the contest  so when I got back home I put a rush on finishing it up in the span of ten days or so. I got right down to the wire on finishing it, June 29th and the judging began on June 30th through July 1st.

I had friends visiting me on the 1st for Canada Day and I remember being out downtown lining up with two of my friends for a concert by Deadmau5 when I got a text from my mother at 7:57 PM. My grandfather had died the previous night of a heart attack in his sleep. I'm putting this all in writhing, because if I'm honest with myself I'm still struggling to process it. My grandfather was pretty supportive of my hobby even if he didn't particularly understand my fascination with my tiny robots, but he and my grandmother always came to check out my work at the local hobby show.

It honestly feels better having written it all out.   

So this just my take on what a potential Efreet Space-Type could look like. Initially I was largely inspired by the Kaempfer Amazing from Build Fighters and where this contest was themed after the "Meijin Cup" it felt like a good fit.

Anyway to get the right look, I've removed all of the hoses and what not (the poly hoses that were included felt kinda clunky anyways), hopefully their removal doesn't stick out too much. From there I did a fair bit scratch building; fuel tanks a shield and two rifles.

I had a little bit of inspiration for the colour scheme from Votoms, I've never actually watched the anime but I felt like the militaristic green and red would be a good fit. I tried to keep the weathering to an absolute minimum, just a few touches here and there.

I like it. The colour scheme looks surprisingly good on things other than an Eva :D

Really nice work! the dark colours really give it a stealthy look that the sniper had been lacking

So I guess I'm working up to the very last minute on this one.

Anyway, so I've been working on the matching rifles to make them look the same and then
a little bit different just to give them a slight asymmetry, then added magnets to mount
them onto my fuel tanks. Beyond that I've removed all of the hoses again similar to what I
did with my last monoeye, and then added some minor bits for vents and fins here and there.
All that left is just paint and photos, I've gotta get it in gear.
