Yup, that's what a Taurox should've looked like!

I have always wondered how big that model was; it looks great - been eyeing it off as a Tau unit for Gue'Vesa alongside a scout car made by Brigade games I think.

Also, big fan of that particular hound - there is a complete lack of decent hounds in 28mm. I've seen poor sculpts to massively overscaled. Best are the Scooby by Hasslefree and that hound from LoTR.

After a week (4 evenings) of being chained in the painting corner, this is how the Chimera/Taurox look now...

All there is left to do is a little bit more detailing, decals and weathering.

Unfortunately I did not manage to paint the hound... maybe next week :)

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.

Taurox/Chimera counts as Hull #402

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?
