Quick and Dirty Power Generator and Miners

A couple weeks ago I posted some quick and dirty com stations where I used the tops of cheap razor handles for the arms supporting the dish. Well I took the rest of the handles glued them together and sanded the bottoms flush then mounted that on a soda bottle cap to make this small power generator.
Here it is painted up. I think this will make a nice power generator for small farm or outpost. The project took less than two hours to complete and went together fairly simply.

I also finished the Venture Star miners. These minis were giving me trouble due to a bad primer job but I'm fairly happy with the way they turned out especially since they are basically NPC types.

I am surprised at how well those RT guard arms work with the Catachan bodies.

That's actually an Empire Militia arm I sculpted the pocket on.

Sweet! I've been trying to figure out how to build force field emitter pylons, to create a sci-fi fence around a structure. Your power generators will work very nicely, and I happen to have a bunch of those cheap disposable razors already.

Thanks!

Yeah I could definately see them in that role. Might even work with just one handle facing outward for each pylon. Let me know what you come up with!

generator looks great, your OSL may have spilled out to the sides a touch too much though...
