Gallery - Chimera on duty!

Well, the first of the Chimera is in a finalised state! I've decided that, as I am working to a very tight deadline, I will come back to the models to add transfers for unit identification etc. So, for now, this tank is complete and ready to carry some troops into action!

This first one has a converted Heavy Bolter Turret, using a Heavy Bolter from the Baneblade / Shadowsword kit and a combination of plastic, metal and resin stowage from a range of sources.

    Great man, really great! I love the stowage you have on the back and can't wait to do something similar on the Chimera I have organised for my terrain.

    Keep up the good work, the Russ, Hyrdas and this all look tops.

  2. FYI, the stowage pack over the rear hatch is a resin block made by a company called LEGEND. It's part of a 1:35 scale stowage kit for a Humber Scout Car. I bought the set on e-bay for around £10 (inc. postage which was nearly as much as the kit itself!) By more luck than judgement, the thing fits almost exactly into the hole for the rear hatch of the Chimera!!!

    I am currently working on 4 more Chimera simultaneously... hoping to get them done by the end of this coming weekend!

  3. Damn, I wish I could match your productivity. Crazy stuff.

  4. Nice work! The stowage looks ace, and the weathering is awesome as usual. You're just cranking these out, I'm humbled by your productivity. Keep up the great work!

  5. They're being thrown out thick and fast thanks to the quickly approaching tournament. There's nothing quite like a definitive deadline to get you into gear!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone, they really help with the encouragement and enthusiasm!

  6. love the stowage. also, ace job with the sponge weathering

  7. Thanks Dethtron! The stowage used on all my tanks is a mix of bits from a variety of sources. Most people will be able to identify the GW parts, but I also bought a few boxes of Tamiya stowage which go a long way too (I have barrels crawling out of my ears now though!) and a couple of other resin kits help to add some finer touches too.

    When looking for stowage, it is worth remembering that 1:35 scale sets tend to work really well with 40K tanks.

    PS all; I've been beavering away on more stuff, so will hopefully be able to take photos at the weekend and give you more posts to go through!
