Thanks Tael :)


After a week of not being able to upload any photos but still being able to paint I have managed to complete both these projects :)

This is my take on the Cadian Command HQ Squad from FW less the melta trooper who will be joining another squad and with the addition of a LotR dog (Farmer Maggot set)

Based on the Puppetswar Taurus with the addition of a Chimera turret and some other GW bits.

Taurox/Chimera counts as Hull #401

This vehicle is armed with a Multi-laser and Heavy Flamer which are magnetised along with a fixed Stubber on the cupola.

Top stuff man, really has a sense of mass and durability compared to a Chimera.

Looking good, clever refit of the basing. Is it an MDF base or something you crafted yourself?

Cheers Tael :)


Here is the cut and paste from my BnCS thread on how I did the bases

Planning far ahead again... I was pottering around in my workshop/shed doing some cleanup after a DIY job and found an old football table base. It is 5-6mm thick fibreboard and it got me thinking...


When I get around to building up my HW teams I want them to be based so as to be able to remove one of the models as a wound marker. One thing lead to another and these where the result


Image


The discs are a little over 60mm (nearest size of cutter I had) with a 26mm diameter recess drilled out to a depth to fit the standard 25mm plastic base. They have just been painted with a watered down PVA and when dry will get a spray of black primer.


I only made 9 to start off with but I have enough fibre board for at least another 9


If anyone is interested in making their own you will need one of these:


Hole Saw, 65mm Diameter


and one of these:

Kitchen Cupboard Door Hinge Hole Cutter Drill 25/26mm diameter


and naturally a drill with a drill stand

Those chimera counts-as are awesome. Great work incorporating them into the guard!
