With all the festive times going on I haven't really done much, now that Warpcon is 16 days away work needs to get done.
And loads needs doing:
- Hydras (waiting on parts)
- New Chimeras
- Hull Heavy flamers for Old Chimeras (magnets)
- Flamer troopers need painting
- Heavy Bolter to Autocannon Conversions
So my order from Old Crow arrived, which means my list gets a shake up, Tactical missile Turrets!
Now because I don't have that many Hulls I need to put one on a Leman Russ Hull. the other will go on a Chimera.
|On a Chimera Hull|
|On a Leman Russ|
|Because I need to use a Russ Hull I have to remove the sponsons.|
|Completed Hull, will add radar on the white hatch.|
To get another hull I needed to take my Basilisk apart, then I started to make the new base for mounting a Flak cannon or similar.
I need to get the plasticard textured so will probably try and spray and or drybrush over this netting, or glue it on. but that's pretty low priority.
I also went to magnetise a new Chimera turret, just in case Heavy Bolters make a comeback!
The plan is to magnetise all the hulls along with the Sponsons for Leman Russ, I have a lot of spare weaponry so this should be easy, once I work out the best way to go about it.
There'll be loads more updates in the coming days/weeks, as I work towards getting everything done in time, even after it's all assembled and tidied it'll have to be painted, I think it's going to be close.
