Hydra substitute

Okay, this is the Ramshackle Games Quad Gun perched on top of a modified 1/48 scale KV chassis. It's a bit out of line because it's just stuck together with blu-tac, but the question is - do I need to lengthen the barrels, or is it obvious what this is?

Tank hunting

I've been quiet on the blogging front over the last week or two - family holiday in the Wye Valley, so I was a bit busy in the canoe and on the bike - but I have managed to get some colour onto this Forgeworld tank hunter I picked up on Ebay a while back.

A very simple colour scheme; heavy green drybrush, tracks in drab drybrushed gunmetal, pick out the details. I will be using it in the Imperial Guard army I'm finally getting on with as either an enclosed Basilisk or (since the long barrel is magnetised) as an enclosed Colossus. There are 'proper' rules for it in the Imperial Armour books, but it's good to have a codex alternative...

Rough riders - part 1

Just a quick update of what's on the board at the moment; legs for a squad of rough riders. Made from the hip and boot bits of a pair of Cadian legs, with a bit of copper wire to get the leg length. Once they are completed, I will make myself a mould and cast enough for a squad.

They fit neatly onto a lizardman cold one, but I think they will fit horses as well if I want a second squad. They are a bit rough, but they'll do the job.

The other thing that's floating about at the moment is an idea of using WW2 figures to play Gruntz - some sort of alternative/weird world war stuff... twin lascannon Sherman, anyone :)
