You may remember (and if you don't I'll provide the links) my wasteland walkers, i. e., the Quixote Project ;)
I started with Don Quirixote of Manchae Prime and his faithful Sancho Panzer. I accepted a commission from a pal to make another version of Don Quixote for him. But now, of course, you can see that this project was unfinished, as he also needed a Sancho of his own.
Until now. Here I ride again.
|I clearly didn't have enough|
While this dapple had to look chubby and funny too, I wanted something else. My first approach was a classical one, with the rider on the long neck, in front of the hull itself.
|A saddle over there, you know|
But a friend convinced me to do otherwise. What if I put the driver on the back? Hmmm, interesting. With that in mind I had to use an old Ork biker (and some parts of the warbike). I'll show:
|The body has a nice fat belly. Just remember that 'panza' is Spanish for belly|
|If you look really close, you'll see the contact key|
|Standard postapocalyptic cap|
So I cut the neck of the dapple and repositioned the whole thing a little bit to get this:
|Not exactly Akira toriyama style, but still works|
|From now on it's all about adding stuff|
|So it's just a huge walking trunk. Or a pot; still undecided|
Here you have the finished result:
It is always better to make a journey in good company...
Here you can compare:
Now it's up to my pal to paint them! I'll be sure to share over here when he does so.
Dammit, this shit has me hooked, these are fun to do. However, I have no immediate plans for more walkers, as I still have a hell of a mountain of work on the bench! But in due time... Hmmm...
