Thanks Rabbitmachine-
I really prefer the tau tanks to massive battlesuits
-Completely agree, especially since the weapons fit so well.

Oakreef- Ah I wondered if I could see a pilot sprue in the backround. I cannot get my hands on any pilot parts! :( - thinking at this stage either to model two XV02s in the cockpit or make my own using spare pathfinder torsos.
but I forgot to get the consoles for the cockpits
- Yep I was also fooled by that one initially, but I have those now.

Very slow progress on this project, but looking at the last images I posted I think you'll agree it has come on a long way!

Image


Pulse Blastcannon is now in place, as are all the other weapon systems found on the Stormsurge (although the Destroyer Missiles are currently absent). I opted to use the twin-linked burst cannon from the Hammerhead kit through sheer lack of imagination
Image
I prefer the inclosed look for burst cannons, and will make a copy of this when I'm finished with it


Weapons aside I have been slowly filling in a lot of ugly gaps, adding a few extra details

Image

and generally tying to smooth things over ready for painting!

Image


Any comments or criticism gladly welcomed, and hopefully more images soon.

A quick link to some of Lord Mayhem's work demonstrating an alternate way these two kits can be combined, this time as a walker named the Surgeosaurus. Enjoy!

Last few modelling posts I promise! The main hull has now been primed, so at long last I can soon make a start on painting. Not a huge amount of change since the last post:
Image


The pilots and cockpit were painted in sub assemblies, and have now all been glued into position. Excuse my ugly use of milliput, greenstuff and liquid greenstuff, they give a very mottled effect, but all surfaces are now passably smooth.

The only other change I have made is to replace the standard flight stick with a sawn-off large flyer stem. Having had many problems with the regular flight stick in the past, I decided, what with the additional weight of this model that it would quickly snap. Ten magnets make for a good bond.
