Da Grot Doom-Vee: Unpainted by Proiteus Da Grot Doom-Vee: Unpainted by Proiteus
Normally I wait till a model is painted before I upload a photo of it; but since I was so pleased with how this tank looks I thought I’d upload a photo of it unpainted. Plus I’m busy all next week so I won’t be able to get it painted up anytime soon sadly.

It’s pleasing to know that the army is going to feature five of these menacing looking vehicles. Armed with the ‘Afta Burna’ I mean heavy flamer under the driver’s window and a multi-laser turret to help my opponent recognize it as a chimera transport by using an actual chimera turret.
It features 5 fire points for the grots inside to shoot out of. I’ve also included a small look-out post on the top of the vehicle that will feature a different grot for each doom-vee.

As with all my conversion changes were made during the built. I chose to magnetise the ram so it be easier to transport. Plus I attached a step at the back due to the hull being too high of the ground for a grot to step in. I also added some detail to the blank front plate by adding some bolts and a searchlight.

Now all I need to do is trim the resin lines off the wheels so they won’t be highlighted when I dry-brush the sand and dust onto them. Someone suggested I use a mud mixture on them and although that’s tempting I would have to go back and do the same to the completed vehicles.

What’s your thoughts on the matter; should I add some mud detail or keep with my basic desert dust?

Yes, I got the most attention the first time when I entered the grots into a tournament at Warhammer World. I went out to get a drink came back and 4-6 players were gathered around my table looking at them. Not surprising they won best army, Now I plan to hopefully repeat this a 2nd time.

Very good vehicle. The good part of making a 40k army like Orks (well, Grots in this case xD) is that you can use everything you find, like toys of a 5 years old boy.

agreed, your work does not need that much weathering :) mud on these would look cool, that's true, but still, better to keep it as the rest
