Thanks :)

 

I can't really offer much help for the load out as I am mainly a modeller rather than a power player so I tend to have fluffy games and who knows what 8th will bring ;)

 

I have magnetised my Russes so all loadouts are possible.

Kit it out with magnets! ;)

With the standard LR I still prefer the standard battle tanks. Lots of other like the exterminator.
Im sure with with the arrival of 8th they will be shaken up a bit.

So, after a short holiday I have got back into the painting corner and another 4 vehicles have now been primed for my Armoured Summer smile.png

Manticore

I decided not to magnetise between a Deathstrike/Manticore as I can only see myself using the Manticore at the moment - maybe the next one msn-wink.gif

 

 

 

Wyvern/Hydra

P5130019_zpsdddtrypw.jpg

This one has been magnetised the same way as in the Magnetisation guide

 

Hydra

P5130020_zpspp3fygyb.jpg

This one is a salvaged one and unfortunately the AC barrels are glued in

 

 

Light Artillery Tractor

Guardified. Currently waiting for some Anvil Industry seated legs to fit on the bench seats in the rear compartment. Believe it or not it will take 2 figures a side :)

This is how it originally looked.

 

 

Should be starting to camouflage them up next week and to get all the primed vehicles done should take about 3 months but it will double the amount of armour I have ;).

 

5 Leman Russes

4 Chimeras

2 Hydra/Wyverns

1 Manticore

1 Tractor

 

 

Still 2 Sentinels and 9 biker Rough Riders to do once these are done...

Niiccce. You can never have to much armour, unless of course you run out of basement space. Looking great.

Where'd you get the artillery tractor? The suspension looks like that of a World War II vehicle, making me think the model was originally that of an obscure (maybe Italian) tank.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Looking good!

 

If I may make a suggestion, though, I think that replacing that skinny (and real-world realistic) gun on the tractor really sticks out like a sore thumb in a 40K milieu. I think that removing it and replacing it with a 40K weapon (if such vehicles get one with the rules) would make a huge difference in making it fit in. Right now it kind of just looks like a historical model kit with a smoke launcher on top.

@Nico: I already replaced the even skinnier barrel it came with with a las barrel from the rear of the Hellhammer turret so it is a little bit bigger. If I was to go for something along the lines of a stubber or even a HB it would look far too big... Unfortunately it is what I am stuck with :(

I am working along the lines of a lightly armoured tractor for towing a piece of artillery and carrying the gun crew rather than a fully fledged APC ;)

 

@Bjorn: It is from Shapeways

The suspension is similar to an M4 Sherman and other US WW2 tanks

Nice conversion of the Komsomolets tractor. Hopefully it is the correct scale for a couple seated guardsmen.

End of Week one of The Armoured Summer

 

Here is my progress so far...

 

 

The Manticore has taken second stage to the Light Artillery Tractor and still has the most work outstanding on it with panel shading (my personal hate) and tracks the main bits to do before detailing, decals and weathering

The Tractor is a little farther along and just needs some detailing prior to decals and weathering plus the passengers need painting ;)

Just to remind you ;), it was based on a model from https://www.shapeway...tillery-tracto…
and the seated troopers are from Anvil Industry

As next week has a bank holiday in it it will be a short painting week for me but I hope to get up to the weathering stage :)

Tractor looks great, especially with all the extra stowage.

Excellent work on the Manticore (it makes me wonder how our artillery will be in 8th. Devastating, hopefully!) and the tractor is great! :tu:
