Re: Harry Makes Ants

Hey all, General update. I've gone back to the drawing board for armour on the pneumatic thing for now as I really wasn't satisfied with the quality and strength.

Harry Makes Ants

Yo. It me. Antweights have moved along a lot in my semi legit hiatus. I'm glad to see there are so many people doing cool things still. I'm going to try and catch up and drag myself (and the amazing Mr Blunden) to an AWS. Anyone who follows my Facebook drivel will know I've pumped out a couple of cr...
