So then, it's the middle of last year and some of those other heavy weapons from the Cadian Heavy Weapons set still need homes. Oh look, Col Gravis is having a kick starter !
And the very first option is the carriage without a weapon. That's handy, one thinks to one's self, there's a potential home for the weapons. One quick backing later and I've got me carriages. Now the weapon shield does not allow one to fit a GW weapon to the CC weapon carriage. So rather than hack it about, these are going to be done naked.
So this them glued up. I'm thinking that the las cannon battery can be mounted on the axle at the front and then perhaps connected up with a bit of pretty heavy gauge brass wire.
In case you're wondering, there is an autocannon propped up on that las-cannon. So, then, a week and a bit later and we're here:
Undercoated, base coated, monumentally heavy pin oil wash and then a few details like the cartridges in the auto cannon drums, auto cannon cocking handles and las-cannon barrels.
When you click on the fots, you should be able to see that muzzle shroud on the las-cannon and the muzzle brakes on the auto cannon are suspiciously green; I was holding them by the muzzle as I worked on them, figuring that this would be an area that got extra work later.
I know one of them is pointing at the ground. But hey, in the Grim Darkness of the far future, even the dirt is probably worth shootin' at. More tarting up to go on these, but as I write this the 60mm base las-cannons are done.
And in other news, I remembered to get Mrs Zzzzz a valentine card before the day this year. So ratcheting up the brownie points for Col Winterbourne's extravaganza. As long it doesn't clash with anything else. I've been dreaming up justification for his battle, but that can wait.
