Riot Control Armoured Sentinel. RCAS. Agh, that sucks. I really have to find a better name for this. But oh, I'm digressing and I haven't even begun to speak. Anyway, from what I've said, you may have a hint; I'm assembling a Sentinel for the Adeptus Arbites. The idea came to mind long time ago, but had never developed it until now.
The idea of having light armoured elements looked appealing, and I do love the Sentinel model. So everything was meant to happen this way! The work on the model is quite simple. I had to perform some unexpected greenstuff work as the sprue had some casting fails, but it was pretty simple to solve. I used the flamethrower configuration, but replaced it for a heavy webber (slight conversion), as it is of course the only logical choice I can imagine for a law enforcement riot control walker.

Just in case you are new to WH40K, webber weapons fire chemical fibers that entangle the objective and immobilises it. It may be the most civilised weapon in all the Warhammer arsenal (of course if you don't take into account that the harder the victims struggles, the harder the fibers shrink until the objective is utterly crushed). Well, let's keep the 'it fires sticky glue to immobilise rioters' approach.
When you paint it in Arbites black, this is what you get:
|You don't want to mess with the Arbites|
|Batman asked for a similar one, also in black. But he didn't get one|
|Much better than the lousy ED-209|
The paintjob is consistent with the rest of my Adeptus Arbites stuff. Straight black, yellow stripes and the Arbites seal on the front. This will certainly be a hard challenge for the rioters in the scenario I hoped to play in 2017 and which now I hope to play in 2018.
It will come. It will eventually come...
