Hey Gang, Last week was a bit slow, but I managed to get some good :cuss done on the weekend!
So I've got a name for the big boy now, the Stronoga-Class Battle-Construct.
Brief fluff is its still essentially a cybernetica construct, but relies on a large battery of gestalt brains to function due to its complexity, making it too complex for simple Battlethurgy commands to work in combat (better fluff to come obviously)
So have made more adjustments and managed to get the main armament to somewhere I like.
Again with the use of the corpsecart zombie heads, as I really want most of the fleshy parts to look quite unhappy about their lot in life, like again they are still conscious, but have had all their basic functions taken over by the device into which they are installed. So essentially that bloke is an enslaved targeter/range finder.
So the more learned of you will realise thats one of the little brain-rats from one of the fantasy skaven kits. I've just removed its tail and replaced its face with (you guessed it) a corpse card zombie melon. I imagine this little guy is actually vat-grown for purpose and would probably run more of the higher-functioning targeting data etc.
I've also added to two heavy bolter sponsons, but wanted them to be a bit more Mech like.
Again with the slaved-screaming face akin to the thallaxi. I've modeled these so they look like they could move around independently and target, as well as snuggle up to the body for transit, fitting into tighter spaces.
The nominal command console, main sensory apparatus. For those with a keen eye it is almost exactly the same as the one on the Jottun-Class automata, I wanted to sort of show this is an off shoot of them, an evolution of sorts as opposed to a distinct other development pathway.
And finally a large side on shot of the construct. Its almost completed (sans the front sets of limbs), it just needs to extra small detailing of chains, skulls and more cables.
Hope you're enjoying gang!!
Next up will be my take on some Vorax Automata!
I’m down for #techheresy!
The new crawler is looking nice with the weapon mounted. As for the orientation I like option #1 a bit more. I like the break up of the rounded edges.
Thanks a heap brother, currently kept the pointed up as I may of blasted too much glue to 'tac' it on for the previous pic . #designchoices
