One thing I'm kinda missing in the current 6mm scene is converting. Now that everybody has a home printer, they simply print whatever they want. Don't get me wrong, I'm not against 3D printing...why the hell would I otherwise do 3D design work. But I do miss the whole craft of 6mm converting.

So...I was pondering about making my big armoured gun morphing guys modular. Basically 5 bodies and then 10 different arms.

Fair enough! But should I then try to tweak the groins a bit? They (and the way the legs are connected to it) look a bit off now?

I don't see it. So can't really comment on it in truth. I think you may have been looking at them for too long. Come away from them for a few days and come back to it?

A quick experiment, been very intrigued by the notion of MicroHulk, a pocket version of Space Hulk, so I started out trying to make some modular 75mm x 75mm tiles...
