Lead Adventure League Round 7 - Cerci Speed Circuit

This was my round 7 entry in the LPL, which was ingloriously beaten by the excellent entry by Professor Witcheimer.

The 'Bride' is a conversion, using a Hell's Belle body and hoverbike with a lovely Statuesque Miniatures head and a katana from a Wargames Factory kit.

The green hoverbike is an out of production figure produced by Antenociti's Workshop.

The Relic Knights figures are not easy to work with. The plastic/resin they use is difficult to trim and the Cerci figures tend to have copious mold lines. In general the consensus is that the Cerci faction had the worst translation from the original figures into the new material- Princess Malya had almost no face detail and the Royal Wrecker's face was so bad that I swapped it out for a Statuesque head (which are very nice and fit the scale better anyway).

The Royal Wrecker in general may be the most difficult to build model I've dealt with, and that's saying a lot as I've been doing this stuff for decades.

I do like them when they're painted though- they're quite different from my usual output, fairly challenging, and the Relic Knights game is fun.
