Cheers gents

Well, I dug yet another project out from the back of the model bin...









I think I got this damn thing sometime around Christmas, and it's been sitting around looking distinctly grey ever since...so I just had to finish it off. I'll be out of town over a good part of the weekend, so I'm not expecting to get much done...progress next week, I hope.

As always, C&C welcome...and thanks for lookin'!

Well thank you

Been quite a productive night; as there's exactly a week left in the vehicle wreck competition, I figured I'd best get me arse in gear...








I've scratchbuilt the flakboard barriers for a trench on either side of the tank from plasticard and sprue, as well as glueing the tank wreck itself to the base. I've gotta let the woodglue dry overnight, so tomorrow morning I'll be applying some of this stuff...



Liberally to the board to make a slight slope up toward the flakboard, as well as 'burying' the tank a little. After that, a mess o' sandbags, a framework and awning to go over the gaping hole where the turret used to be, a heavy bolter emplacement in the same spot, a mess o' razor wire, basing, and paint...gonna be cutting it close!

PROGRESS!!!!!
(sorry for the crap pics; camera went wonky and the shutters didn't open all the way)











Spread the filler, sandbagged the heavy bolter emplacement, built the heavy bolter and bipod, scratchbuilt the roofing for the emplacement...at the moment, I'm gonna have to wait for the filler, green stuff and pva-soaked tissue to dry, so I'm at a resting point for now. Oh, and the roof and heavy bolter aren't permanently attached yet; they'll be painted seperately.

I'll be adding sandbags and razor wire all over the board; perhaps some other trench-related acoutrement as well. After that, it's basing and painting...more to follow!

Like the speeder a lot. The base really sets it off well. Well done.

That will make for some badass terrain. Nice work all told.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Thanks much for the replies, gents

Well, the tank wreck has once again occupied my time today...










I based the entire piece, sandbagged along the trenches, I cut the razor wire to fit, painted the roof and heavy bolter...and in a flash of inspiration, scratchbuilt a ladder and ramp to allow quick access to the heavy bolter nest from the backside of the position. I've gotta wait for the green stuff to cure overnight, so tomorrow it's paint! I think it's shaping up pretty well...

Thanks for looking!
