So, I got some batteries, took the pictures and loaded them to my computer. Was about to start uploading them to photobucket, but my girlfriend arrived. It is now 3am and I am trying to put them on here, just for you lot!
First of all, we have the main Siegeshaker cannon that I received from Mr. Xander. It shall be used as an Earthshaker or if in a Dwarf army, a Grudgethrower. I have a few slight modifications left and those are to put “gripping spikes” on the front wheels and to put some kind of decoration on them. They look too bland right now and I don’t want to use more Chaos stuff if possible. Any ideas?
Next, we have the second Siegeshaker that I received. This time, I did not put it on wheels and didn’t include the front rim, but chose to place some cotton wool in the barrel as an explosion. In games, this will count as a Death Rocket and sometimes as an Earthshaker. The only extra difference here, is that the barrel faces the opposite direction to the chassis (when compared to the other cannon) and there was no insignia. I choce to cover the shield shaped part with a spare old Chaos Warrior shield. Which way around do the bronzeish colour and silverish colour look?
Thirdly, we have the OLD Dwarf cannon. Since it is SUCH a small calibre piece of equipment compared to the other pieces, in games, it will be used as a Bolt Thrower. I have another, new, Dwarf cannon that shall also fill that role (will get picks up sooner or later for that). When used with Dwarfs, there are just cannons. With this, I simply painted it, following the scheme used with the other warmachines so far. However, what IS noteworthy, is that it came with the three crew, one of which is part way to becoming a Chaos Dwarf Sorcerer!
Oh, yes! A CD Sorcerer made from a crewman. It’s the model that is hefting a cannonball. All I did was remove his helmet, grab one of my BBs (I only have SEVEN! Was a little scared to do this…) and clipped his hat off. I glued it to the hatless crewman and now need some greenstuff to fill the MASSIVE hole in the back of his head and hat, replace a little lost hair and add flames to the cannonball to make it a ball of flame. It should be interesting to say the least because I have NEVER used GS before. I’ll let ya see how it goes! As for the BB, he was rescued. The Dwarf battalion box comes with cannon accessories, which, strangely, include a helmet, so I just glued that on. Almost no sign of a hat-swap! Any comments and/or ideas appreciated.
That is all that I have painted that looks even REMOTELY CDish. Constructive criticism and comments please. I am also aware that my painting is not excellent. Not necessarily bad, just not excellent.
P.S. Should have some Orcs painted soon.
