Still trying to remember how this painting malarkey works after my long absence, but yellow was always my favourite for weathering, seems to take a variety of techniques very easily.

I've just nicked one of my son's sponge brush things thatvjs giving reasonably good results so hopefully I can just do a simple set of sponge weathering. Time will tell

So I got out the whole set for a bit of a lookee.

Last time I did that I had this much.



Now i'm up to this much









Definately a decent load now Maybe not enough for multiple loadouts but definitely enough to position in lots of fun layouts.

Left to build is one more hex tower for height and a few more containers for scatter. Then the painting must begin in earnest as I've just pre ordered 2 boxes of Van Saar

So I lost the eBay auction for the dunecrawler. Oops, see what I seem to have ordered



Lots of lovely walky tank loveliness...



Just put the legs and cockpit bit together for now as I need to do a hell of a lot of dry fitting for a while. The tolerance on the parts is amazingly tight. really nice kit to put together.



The reason I got it is because it will complete my triumvirate of industrial vehicles. First was the embiggened rhino transporter


Then came Jekub



And now that I've done a bunch of containers as scatter terrain I realised the I needed some kind of container transporter... So here comes an Onager based walker transport specifically for.lugging containers around!







I'm intending to try and make a cargo deck capable of taking both the Munitorum Containers and my Plascraft ones, but we shall.see how well I can make a modular cargo rack.



I did toy with putting the legs more centrally under the defiler chassis I'm using to extend the cockpit support, but I think it makes it too back heavy when the containers are in place.



Still plenty to do to trim.down the defiler chassis appropriately and to build up the cargo rack at the back. Likely to use thick strips of pvc or sprue offcuts to build.the rack, but I'm not quite.ready to do.detailed planning of that yet. Quite pleased with how it's going considering the onager is actually quite a bit smaller than I thought it would be...

Can’t wait to see how the skitari walker turns out.

Definitely intrigued to see how the cargo walker grows. Right choice with the off-centre legs, other version looks clunkier.

And now I want some of those legs.....

Thanks guys. The Onager kit is super lovely. I think you could do all sorts of things with the legs certainly.

Made some progress tonight in building the cargo cradle but there is a lot of GS drying just now to hold magnets in place so I can't do any pictures that would be meaningful. Hopefully be in a position tomorrow to share more. Then I need to sort another crane boom

Ah-ha. Glue and GS dry enough for some interim pics.

Shown with a Escher ganger and Jekub for scale. It turned out to be quite large in the end





And it fits both of my container types



Shot of the cradle



The cab and chassis are both magnetized to allow disassembly for storage and transport, if I ever need to.


And here is how it all stays stable... turns out I still have the remains of a space pipe that I turned info an ork bike for a friend. Folded it up, glued it in as a counterweight



Still loads of dressing and details to go but the hard bit seems to work. I was also thinking of doing a flatbed module for the cradle as well so it can transport my pallets as well... this way madness may lie however...

C&C welcome.

Flatbed sounds good, also a curtain-sided container, and maybe a meshed in bed

Did you consider a support "wheel" at the back (I use wheel to signify a single wheel, a ball-type affair, a pair of wheels, legs etc) - not sure that it needs ond, just curious as to how it looks with something there.

Small update with a bit more of the Onager details fitted.





It is a lovely kit. Still debating whether to fit the extended foot pads or not. The engineer in me says they should go on. The Invader Zim fan in me wants the spike feet to show

You could say that it has an anti-grav module that supports all the weight, and the legs just move it along. Then it makes more sense to keep the spikes!

I say stay with the spiked feet. Maybe you can use the slippers under the cargo container somehow for when it unloads.

Heh. Dakka has spoken. I'll stick.with the spikes

It means I can keep.the feet for some other project as well, which is a bonus. Definately feeling that suspensor tech is built in there somewhere.

Out of.town with work just now but will hopefully.get some more hobby time over the weekend.

Wow.



For what my opinion is worth, start painting. You're already chest deep in awesome, but I've noticed this a LOT on Dakka- buildbuildbuildbulid... and then hate the project because it's overwhelming to paint.

Not taking anything away from the awesome builds you have, the creativity is excellent and I find it inspiring to do some vehicles of my own.

Thanks Skalk. This blog has been on a bit of a slow down because my Van Saar boxes turned up and I've been giving them a bit of love. But I do feel the airbrush calling me.for the scenery again. Work is ramping up.a bit though so it might need to wait until the weekend.

Firstly, good morning.

Some lovely looking ideas which i plan on borrowing to transform some of my own scenery. A big fan of your industrial vehicles conversions, the dune crawler has Adeptus mechanicus shenanigans written all over it.

Just a quick one, the plaster board filler tape when you put it down is it still sticky? Sorry I'm not familiar with the product and just thought I'd get clarification before I went out and bought a boat load.

Holidays... huzzah. Daytime childcare and therefore daytime modelling time. Even more huzzah.

So today I mostly stole someone else's idea again. I'm going to say it's Camkierhi again because i went through his thread on terrain basically with a notebook open and ready, but apologies if I am in fact stealing someone else's idea.

To texture my buildings and walkways I've added some plaster board filler tape. It's self adhesive and easy to cut. I will also be going over all of these surfaces with my dremel a bit later to roughen it up more but for now it's all pretty pristine.




Keeep up the good work! Looking forward to seeing some paint on the walker and the finished sentinel.

Hi Howie, the is for the interest. Please steal away and repost you verions so I can reciprocate

Regarding the plaster board mesh, it's tacky on one side so it will stick in place unless you are trying to pull it off. It's definately not super sticky. However as soon as you get a few layers of paint on it any residual stickiness that is exposed will be neutralized and the primer should also work to hold it in place.

A massive roll is about £5 so I wouldn'tbe afraid to experiment

Ah awesome! I'll try and get some for sure, I'll be using it for corridors in a zone mortalis esque board. It looks perfect for that sort of flooring.

When I get all the pieces I require I'll be making my own thread.

Keep up the great work!

I managed to get the airbrush out tonight so base coated a bunch of things. I also.slathered.one of the walkway link buildings with nuln oil. I got quite.an interesting pattern getting it dry a bit then tabbing With a paper towel. I'll be drybrushing the flippety flip out of it with a variety.of.greys.so it should hopefully build up.into.a.lovely mangy concrete palette.

Thanks Boundless. It's a nice grubby effect so far.

What I didn't post last night was the masking I had done on the purple container. It seems to have worked ok. I lost a little but of the white coat but nothing that can't be touched up. And it's not like containers in the underhive are going to be pristine...





Hopefully get time to grubby up the containers tonight.

You should cut some strips of perspex and put a 9 0 degree bend in them.

Then, when a model only makes it part way up the ladder you can slot it into the rungs and place the mini in the correct spot.

No worries. If you're going to the trouble to make actual rungs then might as well use them for something!

For bending, cover the perspex with a couple of pieces of wood except for the strip you want to bend. Heat with a heat gun and then bend over a piece of wood. Take care to get the bend line perpendicular or the platform you create will be wonky.

Thanks for the idea Scott. I'll Definately keep it in mind. I'm not.sure how strong the staple friction bond is, but I'm sure I could superglue them back in if they fall out. Work.is intruding again unfortunately but hopefully get a bit of time for.more container shenanigans this weekend.

A bit of container shenanigans in the background, but this update is all about Jekub. I think it's pretty much done. Nice and grungy but with the work bits still reasonably well maintained.
