It's been a while, but the Thunderfire Thudd Gun and its accompanying techmarine (named by Black_out) are now completed! Also, the last five man tactical squad from my 1250 list is built. yay!
Techmarine - Tomas Golch - Black_out
A dedicated warrior, Techmarine Golch showed a talent for handling the machine spirits of vehicles even during his initiation trials. He rose to become a Land Speeder gunner during his training in Tenth company, and was send to study with the Mechanicum on Mars as soon as he became a true Astartes. He has an aptitude for appeasing the cantankerous machine spirits of particularly ancient machines, and was thus tasked with the operation and maintenance of Fifth company's artillery battalion. He has booked great success in reawakening and focussing the spirits of the battalion´s ancient Thunderfire Cannon prototypes.
Scenic shot of the artillery piece
The aim of the cannon is still poseable.
And of course, when there's not enough room for the base of the piece when I want to deploy it in cover in some crowded scenery, the piece is magnetized to its base!
Hope you like!
Now, onto the WIP pics of VI Tactical Squad
Veteran sergeant - Johannu Ermik - hushrong
Wearing a yellowish MKIII pad on his left shoulder, which is one of the last vestiges of my dwindling stock of MkIII bits that I bought years ago, which I only two years ago realized were recasts.
Comms specialist - Adolar Notker - Nemac Vradon
This guy wears IX Devastator squad's former helmet (which was replaced by one with a plume. Because all my officers need plumes.) It will be repainted into yellow. The left antenna is a metal paper clip rod, the tip of which I sanded to not appear clipped.
Heavy Weapon Specialist (Lascannon) - fridrik kolnar - thamier
Battle Brother - Nikolowz Leofstan - TDF
Battle Brother - Drakkarus Vorn - Dragonlover
I hope you like them!
C&C as always very welcome. Thanks for looking
@Soric: Yeah cheers. he's actually the guy that inspired the background of the entire squad. I was like: "this guy looks brutal, he should get some crazy fluff." And then that infected my brain for the rest of the writing session.
