Default Identify this mortar!

Hey guys, looking for some help.

Does anyone recognise the models this guy has used for his mortars;

I thought it may be forgeworld ones for death korps, but no luck there.

Thanks for any help.

Cheers

The one based on Zulu? If so, yea was really impressive.

Like I mentioned in this months army challenge I'm looking for a more primitive substitute for my mortars, and I think they work great. Just have to find 7 relatively cheap on ebay

There is also the Empire Mortar, which while not *quite* the same (as the model is the Ork Lobba as mentioned) its very similar and is a couple of quid cheaper from GW

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

Bringing this whole mortar thing back up, im struggling to find any traditional looking artillery cheap enough, i considered Victoria miniatures heavy mortars, but its still pretty pricey.

But then I came across these:

So I could use the cadian mortars and just convert them to look similar, do you think that would work?

Cheers
