Walking on the DUST

Hi there! Just finished the Walkers during the weekend, so I got everything DUST painted so far!

First thing, I primed them and applied the basecoat:

You can guess which side each one fights for
These are quite easy models to paint, big surfaces and not that big amount of annoying details, I believe they keep a 1940's aesthetics of 'utility is more important than design' which is great.
After that, I highlighted them and painted both SSR and Hydra emblems and stuff...

They both are beauty in their uglyness
After metals and basing, this is how they looked like:

With only a few arrangements, I believe this would make a great Slaanesh walker
A legged Sdkfz. Makes me want more
So with these I have both forces complete (for the moment!). Both Strategic Scientific Reserve:


And Hydra:



I still need to include some cool characters, but for the moment this is more than enough to play a few skirmishes! I haven't played DUST Tactics for ages, so I'm all rusty about the rules. I clearly need to solve that...

  2. They look pretty cool, but do they only have rockets as their armament?

    It's all too easy to get carried away with collecting walking mechanical machines isn't it :)

    1. It's all he weaponry they carry as they appear in the core box. Honestly, no idea of possible upgrades, but now that you say, I'm beginning to think of weapon replacements. Maybe the arms can be magnetized in some way...

    1. Thank you! I've repeatedly been told to get an airbrush, but I don't have space enough for that, so I'm afraid I'll still go on with my traditional brushes, hehe...
