Hey all!

We've picked up another great model, the T.H.I Utility Carapace from Studio McVey. Its not a cheap model, but is very detailed and has a great look. It could also be a great base for a 40k converson, we've already been thinking of making our one into a tech-ogryn or some kind of heavy Tau battlesuit. We've taken loads of pictures of all the parts and written a guide on assembling this model which you can find here:

The weapon options:

Size comparison with a 40k terminator:

Check out the article and let us know what you think. Is anyone already using one of these in their army or done any cool conversions with it? we'd love to see them if so! Another option we thought of is that it has a bit of a "squat" feel about it, so if anyone is doing a squat army for 40k, it could be worth looking into.

Thanks for the pics they look really nice, I'm glad I got these in the Kickstater as they were a lot cheaper than you've paid (sorry)
