PM Jasper... he spent a lot of time adjusting the wings on his Wrymgear and knowing him (and I do) he would love to pass on how he did it.   I do like the rust version you are doing.  Now you just needs some Gnomes to try to get him going again... sound like a diorama to me!

Thanks Robinh, I'll consider it once i get closer to starting the wings ^^

Also, here's a little thought that hit me after you said that:

Ahem...

It seemed like such a good deal. Braythick Bearhammer the dwarf mapmaker/treasure salvager had been poking around some gnome's antique dealings stall and seen it standing there, looming in the back of the tent. It was massive, a masterwork of engineering, gone to rust and ruin. Still, it could potentially be useful to the dwarf. It did after all have a blade upon its tail, and long legs. Wings too, that was nice. It could carry his tools! Yes, it had been a brilliant plan. Something to carry his tools, and any 'rescued' loot he found in abandoned ruins. Something to defend him from the wilderness [and natives of said ruins that might disagree with his right of salvage]. 

And it had been a steal. The gnome had been desperate to get rid of the thing. It seemed too good to be true! Something like this could save him the cost of hiring lackeys to carry his stuff, of hiring thugs to protect him. It wouldn't need to eat, or sleep, it could guard him while he slept. Definitely too good to be true.

 

And it was.

Because apparently it had a few screws loose. Literally and figuratively. It had the attention span of a jackdaw. Braythick did not want the confounded thing to get distracted by a butterfly while he was trying to fight off a mountain lion or troll. And yet, as he unslung his hammer to remind the local natives of his right to found loot, the darn thing would turn around and trot off without a care in the world, leaving Braythick to run in an undignified manner after yelling at it.

 

And most likely, the gnome that sold it was laughing as he counted his coins, grateful to be rid of the troublesome, ancient war machine

Warning!  Boiler is overheating!  You have 30 seconds to reach the minimum safe distance!  Have a day!  Warning!

 

And then, as the dwarves scatter, the once mighty, rusted war-machine faithfully jogs after its owner.  All the while counting down from 30... 29... 28....

I've done a lot of work on him tonight [made him a lot less red. He was way too red.] Did my best to imitate shiny metal and paint under the rust. I'll take pictures tomorrow and see how well it came out

 

I"m thinking this for his base too:
