Hi all, I just built my first SSC.
And in short, it was the worse model I have ever had the pleasure of assembling !
It's not even sitting properly, sort of a little bit to one side just slightly and the cross bar is somewhat elevated to one side, it annoys me but I'm just at that stage where I dont care anymore, its broken often enough that I think it will be fine just the way it is
So lets hope it brings me a lot more happiness in future games to come than it has attemptnig to assemble it.
This isnt just a complaint though; I have got a a question
How do you guys tend to carry your SSC's? Assuming you carry it in one of the GW army carry cases.
Lay it sideways or what position?
Also, what protection have you taken to ensure it doesnt break? Ive green stuffed a good bit of it but I'm not convinced it will be enough if itever takes a knock or two, but not like dropping it or anything
For me personlly when it comes to keeping the model together i have pinned it... when you pin the joints it makes it quite sturdy so I haven't really had problems with them falling apart...
When it comes to transporting it, I actually use the GW carry cases and have cut slots into it so that they fit nice and snug, its not the cheapest way to carry them but that is how I have done it. Hope that it helps you somewhat.
There is nothing more annoying when your Wyches with Plasma Grenades get "Always strikes First" for their combat drugs!
I have a box. I put it in. End of story.
Agree with the points on pinning the SSC.
for transportation I pushed the boat out and bought the raster foam from Feldherr figure cases. A german company.
the foam inserts have removable foam blocks so that you can size the case to fit your figures. So my SSC, sits snuggly in foam padded luxury.
It's also great to transport chariots and the like.
Finally getting round to finshing my Tallarn Imperial Guard Army (2K)
Everything else has been sacrificed on the Altar of eBay...
Am i really the only person who did not have assembly troubles with this thing??
Anyway, as for carrying mine is indeed in a GW case. In the lowest layer, bottom right hand corner as you open the case (my SSC is also mounted on a movement tray base) i have a slot cut for it that is 3 slots big, cut around the corner. The arm sits in the open gap, with the main beams slotting over and under a piece of foam leading to another slot for soem support (blah this is hard to explain, sorry )
