This is my final commander. Unfortunately I havent spent as much time as the others due to a house move just after I started this. I'm hoping to make some heavy weapons for this commander to make her almost in a class with the VX88.
Shas'O Leo'la Jhin
Standard Type 1 - Magnet Count: 31 plus 2 mini magnets
A basic commander head without the fins on the side (just because they kept breaking off).
Standard Type 2 - Magnet Count: 32 plus 2 mini magnets
The extended Plasma Cannon is made from standard varies VX8 weapons and a targetter because I couldn't be bothered to use green stuff to mold the shape I wanted. I think I could have done a better job with the front of the barrel, but just darn too lazy to clean it up. I forgot to paint the power pack at the end which is currently black, but later painted it space wolf grey.
Long Range Type 1 (Missile Boat) - Magnet Count: 34 plus 2 mini magnets
A missile boat. The head being an obvious multi-tracker added to the front of a standard head. I left all the atennas to show the tracking of all the missiles required. The two double missile pods actually have individual magnets so they can be seperated. I mounted these onto the side of the jet pack as I wanted them to be able to pivot slightly and also to be aiming upwards. A slight flaw in the shoulder mounts meant I couldn't really use the angled slot on the shoulder mount.
The ankle reinforcement shows where the mini magnets are hidden. The barrel of the Burst Cannon is used and it has a standard size magnet carved into the top. The bottom rods actually fit neatly to the feet, so if you then twist the feet, the rods move with it. Also you can see one of the two magnets on the shins that i delibrately left unpainted as it looked nice as it was.
Overload Type 1 - Magnet Count: 47 plus 2 mini magnets
This became a bit of a rushed job. The missile pod mount was basically made from plastic card and then a hole in the middle to allow the magnets to sit in and hold together. The frontal armour took quite a bit of planning as it was made from parts from the Stealth suit that didn't quite fit together. There is a lot of superglue behind this and I think it would have been easier using green stuff. This can also act as a arm mounted shield, but havent worked on this as there are two magnets on either side, so need a central mount point if I were to use it as an arm mounted shield.
The shoulder antennas are obvious pulse rifles. A hole was drilled at the bottom and a wire thread through the plastic card mounts. Super glue was carefully applied to the end so the antenna can actually pivot up and down.
I'm hoping to revisit this one in the future and provide it with a bulkier heavy weapon as well as a reinforced/enhanced jet pack. But taking a break.
I've still yet to get around to taking a group shot, so that's next to come.
