Default Tarantula Turret

Hey guys, got the battleforce not too long ago for my catachans, and have spare heavy bolters. so i thought, hmmm, why not get a couple more points out of tarantula turrets. so this is what i have come up with.



I want to make it out of plasticard, 2 heavy bolters and some other bits. probably add a radio thing on the back

So guys, what do ya think?

Looking good so far cant wait to see the final product.

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

Looks good. I'd say make the bottom circle so it can also fir in a standard turret ring. Could work great for a free Razorback turret.

Some good work there pal

We are charged with the reunification of mankind, throughout the stars, in the name of the Emperor. We seek to establish compliance amongst all the fragmentary and disparate strands. Most greet us like the lost brothers we are. You resisted.
