Default Dwarf Airship

Well I've been planning this for a while so here we go! This airship will represent a Fozzik's floating fortress in SoM games. The components:


The general plan:


Got everything nice and clean. These are the ST parts, naturally I will not use the imperial icons and swap them for dwarf ones. I have quite a few shields and such.

It's a 1/720 model of the hindenburg. Took some looking to find that! I'll have an update by tonight by the way.

Well here's the promised update!

I decided the best place for the steam gun was with the sniper (master engineer w/ handgun) and the best place for the sniper was on top of the whole thing and so:


I am no master sculptor and so I will cover up the green stuff later. Since dwarf airships in one of the Gortrek novels had cells inside with a ladder through the middle I can justify this.

Here's the gondola:



The rear cannon is supposed to be a steam blaster for propulsion. Since the hatch is on the turret I used a 40k base for the hatch on the gondola.

Nice models! I suppose those were Armageddon scale though. I've been considering making a few squats out of spare dwarfs for fun.

My only thought about the sniper on the top, is that he really wouldn't be able to see to shoot anything around the sides of the blimp itself. I like the way that the cockpit is shaping up, but I think that it would make more sense for the engineer to be in there.
