On the Smurf Bench: Looted Boom Wagon pt3

I managed to get the bits I needed yesterday from a friend at club, which has allowed me to mount the gun. I did consider building it separate from the main hull and having it fixed with magnets for easy of storage and transport. But I felt that this might hinder the excessive wiring I intend to do with that gun and the as yet to be made generators which power it. So all one piece it is. I guess I'll just have to be careful.

On the Smurf Bench: Looted Boom Wagon pt2

Well progress has been slow on the wagon this week because I'm still waiting on some parts from a friend (who forgot them this club). I was able to pick up some cool 'generator' looking ships from my local hobby shop from the firestorm armada range. When the weapons mounted to the tank I can start building all the generators and wiring everything up!

In the meantime, I began painting my lootaz again. I'm hoping to use them in my current list in place of the deff koptaz. So that means actually painting them. Trouble is there are just too many details, something I have found in the past. In which case it takes an age to paint one! Here's my progress so far:

On the Smurf Bench: Looted Boom Wagon

A great many moons ago I won a caption competition over at sonoftaurus' blog. The prize I chose was a large scale Walker bulldog tank, so what have I done with it?

Well I have begun turning it into a scratch boom wagon. Every now and then I get the plasticard itch and now is one of those times, so lets see how long it takes me to finish it.
