I've finally completed work on upgrading the Thundasquig Gunship with it's new Twin Linked Punisher Cannon armaments so it can now represent a Forgeworld Vulture Gunship. Plus a new paint job with a few extra details.
Of course there are tournaments that don't allow Forgeworld units so I've magnetized the horns on the front so I can switch between the Punisher Cannons and Lascannon weapons for when I need to use it as a Vendetta.
It's proven it's worth in nearly every game and it is truly devastating against infantry and even MC.
The Grots are going to be getting some new tek soon, and first up is my Rapier Laser Battery Conversions, using the last of my guard tracks, and chaos bike parts (from the Ork Botz) plus a few other bits. It's size matches up very well to the size of the original forgeworld Rapier model. The design was inspired by the Soviet tanks from Red Alert 3.
Only question is should I paint the vent up like a vent or try and pull off a glow effect as if there was a reactor inside, remember these thing have a 50% chance to explode when destroyed?
Been a while since I did an update, mainly due to the introduction of Warhordes in my local gaming community which I've been swept up in and have been recently painting up a battlegroup. That said 40k will always be my favourite as for it's conversion possibilities more than anything else.
Anyway finally completed are the Rifle Runtz which shall act as my Ratlings snipers, like all of the grots it was fun to build and paint thou I'm moving towards the Model Color range for skin tones as GW paints tend to be too thick for the job nowdays.
Originally I was just going to have 9 Ratlings but a change to my list now means I need a 10th, problem is there isn't any more gretchin models that would make good snipers that I haven't already converted, so my 10th sniper is gonna have to be something different.
