Thought I'd share a couple of WIP pictures of the Chimera I am making for my Techpriest. Comments appreciated.

I'd maybe turn the stubber around so it's covering the rear, that would look a bit better.

Like the razorback turret though, very cool.

Thanks guys, the back cupola will be interchangeable depending on what extras I want the Chimera to have game to game.

Now that I'm looking at it AWAKE, I would say it needs more stowage. Gears, guns, ammo, track links, etc. As any IG tank should. Also, some guy at the GW website has some great downloadable icons for Mechanicus tanks.

Do you have any tubing? I think the gun would look really cool with some clear tubes running into the back of it. (Note this would make the gun immobile)

Thanks guys.

I agree Dirge stowage is required and is next on the list. Closely followed by some tracks?! I'll go have a look for those Mechanicus icons I was after one for the dozer blade.

I love that Razorback Turret, it looks very techy and the Rhino door on the back is a stroke of genuis.

One thing I would recommend in addition what has been said already is to drill out your gun barrels.

Ok the finished tank just waiting to be undercoated and painted.

Have added a bunch of stowage, made an alternative rear cupola and various other bits.

Now that looks like a Mech Taxi.

Loving the new back turret. I think you've got just the right amount of stowage space as well. It's not cluttered at all.

Now that thing is one idea I may have to steal.

Can't wait to see it painted.

Wow I have started a craze :lol:

Good luck with it Dirge can't wait to see some pics. Useful note the bottom of the razorback turret is exactly the same size as a UK 2p coin and the cupolas are the same as a 5p piece.

From here it looks like two of the hooks from the accessory sprue have been glued onto the side then a rod of plasticard has been glued between them. Chains have then been attached to the rod to make it a mine clearer.

Very nice.

(Sorry for butting in lol, and Dirge you have the first avatar I used lol - cool)
