WIP Shots of a Couple of Unreleated Projects

Just a blogger update to let folks know I am still among the living. Here are images of a Pole Axe  head that arrived today. Needs a wooden shaft to go with it - hopefully I can finds something at Lowe's or Home Depot.
It's more of a display piece than an actual reenactment weapon. The axe head is nicely detailed, but the hammer side's grooved facing is rather thin. They should be pyramid shaped, although for $52.00 USD including free shipping, I can't complain. Here's a shot with a small dog for size comparison.
Also, I started work on an old Space Marine Whirlwind kit I had swapped for a box of Warlord Parliamentarians a few years ago. I added a 2 ounce fishing lead inside the front of the vehicle to balance the weight of the rocket and turret which are made of lead.
Wishing you all a Happy Easter!

    1. Definitely - and if the figure is sub-standard, it can be crushed by the hammer :) Happy Easter!
