Brand new work! A commission for a friend; he purchased this Imperial Guard vehicle (well, I believe it is officially no more called 'Imperial Guard', but you know what I'm talking about):
|This is the monster. Worst design ever. Or almost. GW are beating themselves these days|
This might be a great Ork trukk, but I don't enjoy it pretty much for Imperial Guard. First thing to do was to get rid of those horrendous tracks.
After some failed experiments...
My friend got some decent wheels by himself. Sorry, can't recall the company, I'll ask him if you have any interest.
|Still an Ork Trukk, but begins to look different|
So once my mate was happy, I begun to work on the inner side:
|You know, I can't resist to do these things|
|A little bumped in the inside|
|I could use a pine air freshener, dude|
|Now closing the driver inside!|
My friend wanted the vehicle to be opened at will, so you can see the inside. So the rear ceiling is removable and you can have a look whenever you want.
The next challenge was that he wanted the weapon options magnetized so he can choose what to display for different battles. Therefore, three days later...
|Really a hell of a work, drilling everywhere... without having a drill|
|Well organized display. Bazinga|
For the outside colours we went on dark grey. It fits with other vehicles he has, but he wanted a different approach (That reminds me that I have to show you those vehicles, I painted them some time ago). He wanted not an open field battle vehicle, but rather an urban area, Arbites compatible truck. So dark grey it is:
|My days here are so grey...|
Some more paint later...
|Blue here is used to avoid the Lannister effect|
And then to start with the details:
|If the stripe was red, this would be the 40K A-Team van|
|You don't get to see it properly, but it has a plate down there|
So now let's see this with all the weapons options:
|Basic Autocannons light option|
|Strange cannon and strange side lasers|
|A view from the other side with gatlings|
|Ehm... Maybe not the wisest option, staying just in front of those missiles|
This has been my approach to this totally newschool vehicle. I have some infantry from my friend for this same project, but I'll be switching between projects as I tend to do, you know. So expect some different things before!
