So, as some may know the diving suit gargant is officially trashed. After the fall it was in bad shape, following that I tried to do a water base using a 2 part epoxy, which never set fully. Long story short I messed up. I tried to peice it together, but I was feeling frustrated, so I decided to start work on a new gargant. It is based on the Aussie classic by Lemmingspawn (whom I noticed is now a forum member here). I liked the steam power look of his work, so I shamelessly looted some of the shape.

Here is where I am at currently

Chasis, used the IMEX powerplant and plenty of plasticard/caps and various other plastic bits

This is the simple version of the legs, I think it will need some more plates, as well as the pyramid spikes that Kr00za uses, plus more worky bitz.

Here is somewhat of the direction that I am heading. I am not sure if I will do a head (pictured) or an open top. I like the look of the head, but the open top has so many possibilities as well. I am going to do an armored "skirt" similar to Eins and the concept art, so the screw tops will not be visible. Also been workin on an arm, which is very WIP at the moment

Well I did some work on the head. Decided to go with an "open top" design. Here is some of the work I have done so far. I still need to green stuff a few areas (control panel, the helmet control brain, wiring jobs) and glyphs and more wiring to be added. As it is now, I think it will sit coming off over the body, slightly elevated and descending. I worked more on the arm, but I am not too satisfied so far, so I will make another attempt of it tonight. Looking around at the parts of the other gargant, I am salvaging the gun arm....but trying to figure out where to put it. Any suggestions out there?

Great use of the Powerplant, espceically the box! How would the diving suit gargant's gun arm look coming up over the top of the (its) left/ "structure" side so its essentially shouler mounted? I really like the control brain helmet... "Dere go, sum 'umies, get die gargant stompin!" "Roight, lemme just put on me tinkin cap!"

& as an aside (& hopefully not due to some serious medical condition) but how much perscription drugs do you go through?

Oh yeah, & a really simple way I've found on makin a water effect is a paint whatever is going to be the water the color you want it (blue, green murk) & then just cover with hot glue to the desired depth.

Mr. Kr00za thanks for the drawing. I did take your advice to heart, and I am going to concentrate on making the lower sections larger. Namely the feet and skirting sections. I feel that the arm, and galleys will help to balance out the size of it. And as of now the head is smaller in size.

Thanks Zagursnik for the positive feedback and tip on the water effect. As for the prescription meds, I have people save ALL of their plastic for me, so I basically just use whatever to help make my stuff. This guy has now a total of 6 prescription med bottels under his belt, as well as weird peices like printer cartridge tabs, plenty of markers, water bottle caps, and just about anything else that catches my fancy.

As for the update, added railings aroun d the bottom. Added a side/back platform as well as some armor plates onto that side. Added more details to the head (greenstuffed the helmet cam, levers and other parts). Worked the arm significantly.

Enough, pictures:

Minor update for today.
Added the kannon on top shoulder. Mounted it with some pistons, to make it look like it can move. Debating if I should add a gunner position ontop, to make it look like it is controlled up there?
Added some more bitz and peices near the walkways.

That arm is lovely, you really captured some nice subtleties of motion with it...even if Orks are anything but subtle ;). The gun looks fine mounted where it is, but I think it leans a little bit too much on the ramshackle side of things. It appears if you actually chose to fire it...it would disintegrate. Add some more reinforced pistons to the front to balance it out. The teeth are perfect, like this Gargant went to the paindok to get braces.

Oh yes, that gargant is starting to look mighty stompy :) The arm and the guns are awesome... I especially like the "glove mounted" kannon... very cool :)

Cookie...sheesh 5x posting, never seen that before....must have really liked what ya saw ya zogger. :cheers Lorax nice shambling pile of junk. I love the cobbled together gargant ya got going there brother. Very nice use of the power plant kit. It is a little hard to get an overall impression of what this monster is going to look like. But that will change once you lay some primer on those recycled bitz. Keep up the good werk ya zogger. Jobs a gud un. :thumbs WAAAGH! da shambling gargants

Well the gargant is now standing on some new feet. Add toe like peices onto the bottom, and bulked it out a little bit. Hakbash as you mentioned this thing will look a little better when primed. My builds have a tendancy to be difficult to see, ontop of that I am not a particularly good macro photographer.

Here are the new feet

Its completely out there, zonking mad! :thumbs I like it. I think you should start on the finer details now. Little hatches, pipes (smaller ones), rivets, armor plating, stick it on there. Its definitely coming together, and it will look even better once you paint it. Or at least get it primed. :! Shade

that looks really good, great job one thing I would say though, the upper right arm & especially the shoulder needs to be bulked up as at the moment it seems that the gargant would simply not be able to move the arm.

That's fast work! It's out of the ashes (or junkheap). It really is a shame about the diving suit gargant, but I have an idea my suggestion is to take the broken pieces that you won't use for this new model, and make a terrain piece out of it. It could be just the head and some scraps sticking out of the mud / water. If you want to give clear resin another go, let the mix sit out in direct sunlight for as much of the day as possible, and then seal it with spray to get rid of the tack. Of course, I think everyone wants to see this current bad boy completed and primed up first.

Well so it is in the paint shop. I have done the bulk of the painting. Next is a little more weathering and some more paint onto the power plant of the beast. I also have yet to attach the legs. I am thinking of using some of the rare earth magnets in order to leave the legs detachable (for transport). Any suggestions as to the size/strength necessary?
