new new additions to the cadre I'm currently working on:
first is a guerilla-style crisis suit, the fluff for this one is that it's part of an cadre team which is deep inside enemy territory,
without any form of support, which leads to rather creative ways of keeping the few suits running,
This model has a rebuilt upper right arm, (courtesy of a wrecked devilfish which graciously donated one of its landing struts)
also the head has, after being sliced in half by a space marine, been repaired with a former fire warriors helmet.
On the right thigh it carries a confiscated bolter, modified by the earth caste to work with the hands of a crisis suit
The large burst cannon is also an example of what earth caste engineers can do when they get their hands on a bitz box.
this suit, like the rest of my suits, has 4 magnetized hardpoints (including the giant burst cannon)
also, extensive battle damage has been placed upon this model
I am currently planning on making a unit of three of these, which will primarily be anti-infantry (just an excuse to make more giant burst cannons on crisis suits, I know.
Also, in celebration of the forgeworld rules for the Y'vahra riptide, I started painting it
not much to say about it, comments and improvement ideas are welcome.
It's also magnetized at the waist so it's easier to transport,
which by the way was quite challenging, given the fact It's quite top-heavy, right now I've used 2 Ø7mm, 1mm thick round magnets, but I might use a thicker one if it becomes neccesary
and the base (with sneak peak of the new Phased plasma-flamer)
The base was modelled with something some sort of sealer paste which I bought at a local construction market
the bottom halve will be a patch of wasteland, the top halve will be lava, which also shows the pressure form the 'tides thrusters
Currently I'm planning to paint the lava flash gitz yellow, then partly paint it with fire dragon bright (orange) or wild rider red or both, some dried patches on top and the extruding rocks will be charcoal-black, and then a few cassandra yellow washes to get more depth into it.
if anyone has ideas on how to better paint lava, don't be shy and share!
