Keeping with the Heresy theme, here's my Whirlwind Mk.1. It's based on the old Epic models, with some changes to suit commercially available parts, naemly the Chapterhouse Rhino conversion kit and the rocket launcher from Armorcast. I dispensed with the bas for the launcher, shortened the 'stem' that fits into the base, and whacked a blooming big magnet on the bottom, so it can be removed for storages or weapon destroyed hits. Before any paint goes on I need to add the radar dish to the mount and add a commander.
Again sorry for the lousy photos - still haven't unpacked the proper camera.

I have probably mentioned before that I've been collecting a Heresy army on the back burner for a while, well I have finally put together the first few vehicles, a Rhino, a Vindicator and a Whirlwind. I was planning to do Imperial Fists, but may now do one of the traitor legions, it's all a bit up in the air! Here's my first Rhino using the Blood and Skulls conversion kit.

I finished this over the weekend, so here are some photos - which are a bit crappy as I had to use the little camera as the big one is all packed away at the moment. It's a counts-as a towed Basilisk for my Blood Pact guys.

Not too much to say here, but I've started my Stalk tank - it's a modified Blightwheel Miniatures Mantis Tank. I've had the leg links duplicated and have added extras to the front legs, and I have re-profiled the joint for the back legs to make them more mantis like. Next up, new head and a revolving Autocannon mount on the back - the cannon from this kit is going into my count-as Gryphon halftrack.
