Step 2: Then I built the shins. More JB Welding, clamping and waiting!
Step 3: I then built the attached the lower and upper leg together. Clamping the knee joint and more JB weld. Again, 24 hour drying time is required.
Step 4: Built the feet. They were again glued using JB Weld, but clamps were not required. I put this on a nice flat surface to make sure they are properly flat.
Step 5: This is the hardest step thus far. I slipped the hip rings over the hip ball joints, then used JB Kwik on all the contact surfaces; both ankles and both hips. The ankles don't have a very good contact area, but this will get pinned later. JB Kwik isn't as strong as JB Weld, but it's still a lot stronger than superglue. I'll be pinning the hips and knees as well later. I kept an ankle piston roller thing handy to check alignments thought out the posing.
The pose I choose is hopefully quite erect. There are quite a few warlords out there now that are squatting. I hope the model portrays a braced pause in stride, to launch a salvo at the enemy.
So that's the basic the legs built. The armour plate connectors and hip Pistons will be left off until after pining. The armour plates and ankle piston roller things will be left off until after painting.
Next step, pinning!
