So I am converting up some Sentinel Power Lifters.  Two questions

 

1/ Anyone else got some conversions/kitbashes?  Please post some pictures, I will stick up my current progress soon.

 

2/Anyone used them recently?

 

I was thinking of deploying them forward, using the scout move to gain ground, moving normally, then using the "crush them" strat to gain advance and charge, followed by crashing into the intended victim with 3 attacks each at 2+ to hit...

I was thinking about converting one/some, but haven't gotten around to yet.

 

My research into powerlifter conversions brought up the following:

Ofc. that list is not exhaustive.

 

2/Anyone used them recently?

 

I was thinking about running 'emperors talons recon company' formation back in 7th - been a while since I entertained the thought of going 'all sentinel'.

 

I've got no experience with powerlifters, but it's a sentinel with a big meelee weapon - not as resilient or combat proficient as a dreadnought, but almost purpose made to run up to and tarpit tanks. May even blow 'em up. smile.png

Cheers Exilyth.  There is excellent stuff there.

The German one may help me with the arm joints.

Nice.

In its current state it looks a bit like an insect and gives off ambot-like vibes.

I'm not sure on the manticore/deathstrike launcher grate part - I would move that down a bit so it sits between the non-moving parts of the hydraulics.

Other than that, it's looking great so far.

 

 

A piece of sprue, a searchlight and the manticore/deathstrike launcher grate part aside, what bits did you use for the arms?
