I know I keep saying this, but I feel like I’m getting nowhere fast with this model. Check out last week’s update to see where we got up to so far. As you can see, it’s slow going.

With our Robot Guilliman Monthly Hobby Challenge which started on Saturday, I thought it’d be a good time to show the box and all the hobby goodness contained within for anyone that hasn’t yet had the chance to see it.
