I have been diligently working on my traitor guard and have painted up 2 squads of troopers and built up two more squads. But this past weekend I have been busy trying to replicate my first 'counts as' heavy weapon squad. Here's a picture of that first one:
I want to evoke a WWI look and like the big wheels of the first one. But the main gun part is an old Ork Lobba and runs 22 dollars, the wheels are from the Skaven Doom Bell and run 8 dollars, so I held off. This weekend I got some plastic card from my buddy Christian and decided to build the wheels, the main gunhouse and the frame that holds it. Here's the result and after it was painted:
Of course upon close inspection, it doesn't look as good, but on the battle field it will totally do. Doing rivets drives me crazy by the way. In the end I was very pleased with the way it came out and certainly once the paint is dry and the liberal wash administered, it came together nicely
Here are some shots painted up, on the left the old one, on the right the new one.
For the new one (right), I added a different chaos symbol
and some details, this is a warriors of Chaos shield:
Although for the first one I built up the base myself with balsa wood and green stuff, this time I used a trench base from Secret Weapon.
One more to go!
