An Update 'Afore We Set Sail......

As pirates naval warfare be close to our 'eart - the thrill o' the high seas, the smell o' gunpowder, the creaking o' the plank......
So 'tis with a piratey fondness that we present Space-Fleet! Select yer vessels from one o' eight races an' take to the void! Whether ye be launching a planetary invasion or terrorizing petty landlubbers with a good ol' fashioned raid, know there be no mercy in the dark o' space......
(Cap'n's Note: While most races be pres'nt in this here update, all ye Colonist gamaarrrrs be left out o' this one! Though be not disheartened, nay, we be likely to fix this in a future update!)

Also, 'tis confirmed that we be traveling abroad o'er the seven seas aftaar New Years, so ye be unlikely to hear from me or me crew over the next 3 - 6 months.

From the 40k Pirate Crew, may yer Chris'mas be merry, yer coffers full, yer decks swabbed, timbers shivered and yer sailing fair fer the New Yeaaaaar!

Scratch Built Triarch Stalker

As much as I would like to take the credit, this little killing machine was made by my brother. 

About now I'd like to go on with a tutorial or a series of WIP pics, but unfortunately by the time I thought of that it was too late and my brother had already gone and finished it! Luckily I did get in there before any paint was applied.

This Triarch Stalker was completely scratch built from cardboard, paper, chopsticks, toothpicks, marbles and spare screws. For the 'shoulder' joints he used part of a Leman Russ template, with a standard octagonal template for the base of the body. Some interesting circular piece from the inside of a dead computer was used just behind the front 'arms'.
(Note: For those interested - super glue does not stick on marbles! However two part epoxy glue works a treat!)

Some more pictures of the finished product (sorry about the lighting, didn't notice that window in the background!) 
In my opinion, an awesome result considering the resources we had to work with!
