That is awesome! I'm playing Fallout at the moment, and he'd fit right in there. The paint job is excellent as well.

How funny it is that my concept in my head was to merge the Iron Giant with Liberty Prime.
Then paint it up like a Sherman.
I guess it worked then ;)


I am using him for Homegrown Dust tactics rules.

It's great +rep.

Ony 1 slight thing to point out, if it is actually using the massive exhaust pipes on its back they need to look used, not clean and factory fitted on a rusted robot.. Look at something along the lines of old industrial earth movers (specifically the exhausts) to get what i'm on about.

Everyone has a purpose, just so happens mine is more of an example to others of what NOT to do.

I know it's time to go to bed when the last post in every thread has been written by me.

The eye lenses and the smoke stack are the only things I see that make me scratch my head. Nice model, what is this Weird War 2 that you are talking about?

Any of the Story/Game where WWII goes on past 1946 like Incursion or in this case Dust Tactics is the game that insprired this.
I plan on making homegrown rules for him.


@ Hoobit: You know you are totally right,while in person they are not factory new,they do have soot and heat stress.
But it would be totally rusty if the main body was this banged up.
So,I will be rusting them up.
Thanks for the advice ;)
