Plunder for the Ironclad Fleet [Mar 16 2024 - A Machine for Pigs]

Instead of working on the Golden Hat or painting infantry I’ve gone back to my roots. Big ol warmachines with pipes and steam gubbinz…
Wait, this is neither steam, nor punk.

Well anywho, this will make a good addition to a helms contingent that just got an airdrop of boars from OSM, more to come on that soon.

This was a fun project from start to finish and brought some old parts out of the dusty cupboard. The two fellers riding it are just what the hippo ordered and I’m glad I waited around long enough to have the right dwarfs to go along for the ride.

I had to do some minor subassembly painting on this which I never find fun. But the pinning worked out great and it came together without too much hassle. (Aside from the hitch chains I don’t want to talk about.)

There are 17 eyes on this dam thing. Plenty of time spent lurking @Oxymandias blogs. I’m quite happy with the driftwood staff, which was quite easy to paint as the model was ripe with detail, but took some experimenting to get the color right.
