Well, here it is, tabletop ready. There is more work to be done on it, but this will do for now!
Been sick for about a week, so I haven’t made a whole lot of progress, just did some “nicks and scratches” detailing:
Started painting my battlewagon – picking out all of the individual rivets is a pain! Started putting some details on part of it to break the tediousness!
I finished up the Runtherder recently, so I thought I would showcase his charges. When I was setting up this shot, I noticed that I hadn’t finished the gun barrels on a few of them, so I went ahead and finished the initial colors for this mob. Enjoy!
Here is my Warboss with attack squig, and two shoota boyz I needed to round out one of my units.
I didn’t like the way the force field generator looked on my mek, so I made a few changes. All of the metallics weren’t coating well, so I decided to redo the main tower with the classic Goff checkerboard pattern. The cast was so poor that the multicolored cables weren’t looking very clean, so I just made everything black.
I bought the Citadel Finecast of the big mek with kustom force field, and was pretty disappointed with the sculpt. I expected a higher quality figure with the label “Finecast”. Fortunately, the KFF portion of the sculpt was in decent shape. The mekboy figure didn’t have the equipment loadout of the one in my army list, so I found an unused metal nob and took a suitable kombi weapon from the plastic nob kit to use as a “mekanized” burna. This is still a work in progress.
Here is my deffkopta work in progress. In the background you can see a couple of nobs and my runtherd. I love doing checker patterns, they are quick and easy to do, and can be put anywhere!
Worked a bit on a deffkopta last night, not really enough to be worth posting a picture. Will hopefully get enough of it done this weekend to put something up.
I had planned on scratch building a couple of wartrukks for my army, but since that may take a while, I was thinking of using a couple of old school battlewagons for trukks since I have them on hand, and they only require paint. I have one original, however I couldn’t find the front wheels – and another manufactured by Armourcast. For anyone who doesn’t remember the original battlewagon, I managed to find a photo on Google: I think that this would make an excellent wartrukk until I can figure out how I want to make my own. Any opinions?
