I’ve been making steady progress in acquiring the models for the Dread Mob. Selling old pro-audio gear, airsoft stuff and random other unneeded things I have lying about. Up next is the second Orkanaut. I’m choosing to collect/build/paint from the top down, so for the mob, it will be ‘Nauts, Deff Dreads then Kans. I already finished the 1 Orkanaut so it’s time to move on to his brother.
I still chose to magnetize him so I can flop between which variation I can possibly field, but chose a different route for his shooty-arm. For the previous ‘Naut, I got bits off eBay and made the entire arm interchangeable. For this ‘Naut, I chose to magnetize just the KMK / Deffstorm mega-shoota front end using a tutorial I recently saw. Worked like a champ! As for the head, I went with the Gorkanaut head (as my other has the Morkanaut one) and magnetized the KFF accordingly. Now that all the prep work is done, it’s time to get painting this beasty. Looking at my schedule, I’m estimating 1-2 weeks a best.
