Escalation is going to be a lot of fun. However there needs to be a way to actually put the thunderhawk on the table. Most people are not going to want to drill holes in their hawks, so my solution involved a silicon mold of the thunder hawk's carriage. The silicone acts as the interface between the hawk an the plastic stand, forming a perfect mitt.
The building required reinforcement on the inside using extra sprues. I also mounted the building on a solid plastic base, in order to give it a really good foundation. My original intent was to take this and then embed it in a larger base, however the thunderhawk has been really stable on it, so maybe this is as far as I will take the base.
The stand/building is just base coated, but it will get several layers of pigments before this it is complete. That will darken up the building quite a bit which will make the Thunderhawk stand out more. I broke out my partially completed realm of battle board just to show the scale. The thunderhawk is really far too large as a playable model, but it looks great on the table.
