So Waylander and Toymaker have finally decide to organize a Group Build. And we named it "Poisonmonkeys Jesta Group Build".
The first question that comes to your mind is probably, "Why Jesta?" And I say, "Why not?" We all know Jestas are no frills, simple but effective units on the battlefield. But they are still, cannon fodders.
So, what if I give you the opportunity to transform the humble Jesta into a hero suit? Or turn it into the Antagonist, like Tallgeese, will you take it?
Basically, we want participants to go crazy for this group build. We want souped-up units. We want radical concepts. We want outrageous builds. So how is one going to approach this? Simple, think out of the box. Throw away the original concepts and perceptions of the Jesta and revolutionize it. That's the plan.
So yesterday was the meet. And was I disappointed? I got to be kidding if I say yes. Because, it's by far the most successful and exciting Group Build we organized. The lads were fantastic, lending their full support in the form of fantastic builds. Well, we get to that later...
As a hobbyist, I don't usually buy finished products especially those that I can modify and paint them myself. The reason is simple. Why would I buy something off the shelf when I can make it better and unique? Well, Bandai's Metal Build line is making me eat my words. Their range of Metal Builds are so impressive even I have to throw money at them.
My wife has been asking me to build her a Bearguy ever since the first one was released. I have been putting it off citing reasons like "competitions around the corner", "Group Builds" etc. Well, last Christmas, I finally decided to give her something I made. Rather than buying something off the shelf.
However, I did not get down to finishing it before Christmas. Was feeling a bit bad about myself. So I stayed up the whole night just to finish it. Mission accomplished for me!
