This is just going to be a small thread to track my progress on designing and modelling a replacement base for the Primaris Firestrike Servo-turret. I've loved the look of the thing since GW announced it and have been planning on slotting some into my eventual Imperial Fists successor army I'm also starting to work on. However, I do have one major issue with its design - the base. For a (theoretically) mobile weapons emplacement it looks incredibly static. And no, the "hover plates for feet" thing isn't enough for me. So what's a fellow to do during quarantine other than do some design work?
My basic idea is to call back to the design and role of the Legion Rapier platforms of 30k, an appropriate parallel in my mind due to their combat roles and the inspiration the Primaris line has taken from the legion organization of yestermillenia. Using the Repulsor's proportions and general design as a basis, here's the concept sketches I've put together.
