So in addition to yesterday's kitbash, I also have a new finished model to share with you, as I finally put the finishing touches and completed the base on my yellow underhive killer robot last week
Meet Worker #9, everyone:
When it came to building and painting the base, I tried to match the muddy, rusty underhive look I had chosen for the rest of the Road Crew.
This is such a small detail, but I am actually pretty happy with the faded symbol on the rusty tank I made by combining a couple of old Space Marine decals:
So here’s the entire Road Crew so far, complete with its newest member:
If I have one small regret about the model, it’s that I realised too late that Averland Sunset was a bit different in tone from the Yriel Yellow I had used on the rest of the Road Crew models. Ultimately, however, it’s something I can live with — using yellow spray paint made the experience of painting the big guy much more enjoyable, and the difference in colour could easily be explained away as the robot’s original colour simply being slightly different from the yellow used by the Road Crew.
I am also pleasantly surprised that, given GW's recent hint at something called an "Ambot", there might actually be a fitting ruleset to get this big guy into games of Necromunda at some point -- just sayin'...
So yeah, it seems like, after a couple of years, I was finally able to finish both of those Kastelans I bought, back when the AdMech models were first released:
Plus it’s also cool how much mileage I seem to be getting out of that old Forgeworld Dreadnought head I received courtesy of Augustus b'Raass:
As always, let me know what you think!
