Atlas

A few weeks back I showed an Ork trukk that I bought from Tinners, well in that same transaction I also bought a hull he had been working on as an Atlas recovery vehicle. So while I can't take full credit for this piece I do think I probably spent as much time finishing it as he did building the hull - those rivets take forever!

Anyway here's how it ended up...







And for reference here it is when it arrived at Fort Wargame Towers... (this is Tinners' photo from his sale listing)

Sabre Platforms Painted

These were done last week, but I've held back the photos to give me something to post up this week. I used these at the Animosity event over the weekend and was disappointed with the Heavy Bolter option (which I suspected wasn't going to be great). I think dropping either Las or Autocannons on will definitely make these things much better!

Trojan painted

I'm painting like mad for the Animosity event tomorrow, which means that among other things the Trojan has been painted!

Sabre Platforms Assembled

Finally got around to completing my Sabre platforms as I have a game coming up next weekend. I'm awaiting a delivery of red paint to get these totally done, but here's the assembly finished photos. The middle turret seems to have wobbled off while I was setting up which is annoying, but as you can see I've gone with Heavy Bolter turrets as I was short on Reaper cannon ones, and there's not time to trawl E-bay for bits.

General Update and Fullborer Miniatures

I've lots going on  at the moment with trying to get a job (it's not going well, and I'm being messed about by potential employers) getting more work done on potential products for GWM and preparing for two upcoming games with the guys over at the Animosity forums (http://www.animosity40k.proboards.com). For those I've been working on my Blood Pact army, specifically the Sabre platforms, an Atlas recovery vehicle some Tarellian Mercenaries and some Infardi troops. I'll blog about those in due course, but I wanted to highlight these guys - Fullborer Miniatures (http://www.fullborerminiatures.com/) who make some beautiful figures. The artillery officer figure looks fantastic, and the female smuggler is great for Inquisimunda type games (which is rumours are true could be making a mainstream return!).

I've bought one of each, plus an extra artillery officer to convert into an Ordinance Officer HQ upgrade for my Blood Pact, he's the guy awaiting a head with the requisite Oni mask.

Models and Minis

I picked these up on Ebay the other day after seeing them posted up on Dakka Dakka and thought I 'd share here to get them some more exposure, especially since they were kind enough to swap my order to the new gun style they had just announced! :)

Anyway, overall the quality is pretty good - only one airbubble! The one downside (and it's nothing more than you get with almost everyone selling resin models) is where the resin pouring gates attach to the miniatures - sometimes it's a bit hard to remove and not damage the model. Anyway here are the completed models with a token old GW Ork for scale purposes - purchased one artillery gun and 2 of the AA mountings for use on some Apocalypse sized vehicles.

Their products are available here:

Second hand vehicles...

I bought two trukks from Tinners a couple of months back, and when I got them one of them looked like this:



Well the other day I finally got around to working on this one. In addition to replacing a missing panel, I've added a set of bull bars (which are in the style Tinners used on the other truck that he sold me), small details on the engine cover, wheels from Ramshackle, a truckload of rivets (pun intended) and the smoke discharger. It's now complete less a gunner standing in the the back with a big shoota, firing over the cab:

Big Guns Part 6

Just a quick update to show the kit with the wheels for which it was designed. These are from Zinge Industries (http://www.zinge.co.uk/) and for those wanting a direct link to the product, they are 27mm military wheels (http://zinge.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=18&product_id=143). Thanks to Kit at Zinge for letting me show my kit with his excellent wheels!

Big Guns Part 5

This is 99% done now, just rivets to add to the shell hoist and some very small pieces of styrene to add to the lift panel handles. I've added a 25mm slotta-base for scale purposes

Big Guns Part 4

Just the other wheel mount and the shell hoist to complete now.
