Welcome to PaddyMick's Chopshop, the semi-legal 40K vehicle garage where I will be carrying out conversions with alternate and official 40K vehicles.

First on the chopping block is a Hades Breaching Drill I didn't want to pay Forge World prices for. Here's the official model. Mine's the Desert terrain version innit.

I am part-way through the build and need to add bits to the side, like pistons or something.

Bits used so far:
a 1/72 armourfast tank chassis I bought by mistake
Balsa wood
Raumjager Infantry model with arms and control panel from a Goliath
Goliath Rockgrinder blades
a couple of spare tank bits
Ice lolly sticks - these may feature in a few conversions as I like to eat ice lollys













I have enough parts for 2 so i'm starting the second one now





I bought the Goliath kit for a future project - it's going to be a Trukk in a Blood Axe warband, and it may also be the gift that keeps on giving, as I'll use the Incinorator gun to make a Hellhound, along with these bits - a 3d printed apc, lego technics wheels and moar lollys.



I've used bits like this before for a Desert Pattern Taurox



....and finally for now, here's a glimpse of that future ork project

Thanks Gwyn

I forgot to mention i'm also working on a squad of scout sentinels using Robogear kits:



I've had some modest success with this line of models before, for armoured sentinels:

Welcome back to the Chop Shop.

Here are the two ready-to-paint Hades Breaching Drills, with added pistons and tanky bits. Also pictured are a couple of the Combat Engineers, the sappers who use the drills to assault enemy fortifications.

Great work all around!

I love the Robogear kits- have done couple of projects with them and saw the natural use of the T-rex walkers as sentinels, but could never get going doing something with them; your project has given me some ideas to get going with. I've done up a couple of the Tehnolog tanks and one of the 'monitor/guardian' tracked things- lots of fun and they used to be cheap.

Wasn't sure t first about your Hades Drills- but man, did they ever turn out good in the end! Nice adaptation nd the weathering and general grub to them makes 'em look properly well-used.

Rock on!

Cheers guys! i'm never sure how these things are going to turn out but i'm happy this time.
Re: robogear kits, yeah they are awesome, i'm gonna use the rocket launchers for a Manticore soon. When I say soon, probably next year or when the Guard codex gets released and I get inspired again.

Got a few conventional marine vehicles to paint up now, but will be getting round to starting the Ork project after that.

Many thanks for reading
