is this how you have made all the other tanks or are you changing your modus operandi? looks a bit not done so good, but this might be due to the fact its rpobably the first few coats, am i right?
but i will be patient of the things to come...

good luck with the paintjob, cheers, vik

Captain Jack, I liked your 8wheel oddballs. AT-43 vehicles? I was wondering what they were originally.

Vik, you have to know by now that you had that guess right, it is not done, not by a long shot! I just am working at doing pre work, I will make the black separation more likable after I make sure the camo is just right. in the meantime, I have placed guitar strings as antenna on the Akuyaku
[/img]
2nd image
[/img]
Head on with the antennas
[/img]
Close up so you all can see them.
[/img]
The turret turning, and the antennae and auger pod extended.
[/img]

I am thinking that the Akuyaku pod could use some metallic for the shaft-mast, then make it look greased with devlan mud to have that dark brown look from lubrication oil or grease.

Oh yeah, and to re-shadow that bit to get rid of the extra white up front.

and metallic for the piston struts for the front ram.

with the antennas you get a slight alien look to the model, nothing wrong just a bit different...
and i have ever wondered what you do to the "tower" on that Akuyaku of yours... i think this will look really good, do the weathering and oily effects for the bladepistons as well...

Okay, I have not yet worked on the metallic color for the tower of the Akuyaku as yet, but I did promise pics of my unusual choice of a Hellhound, where the Hydra and other tanks I own have a "Naval" look with tall conning towers, this one is low slung and sneaky as well as fast. Enjoy! ^^

Here with a show of the additional high pressure tanks.

Head on, showing the weapons load-out.

The "heavy-flamer is the left fender, the right is the Cannon, the turret is my "Pintle Heavy Stubber"

They are old Marpeth SKD hulls procured from 'thebaggagetrain' on ebay. I had to ask for specificly and it took me a while to get the 11 or so hulls that I have. I used Ork Trukk wheels, as the ones with the kit are a bit weedy, and I have since found out that you can get resin LAV wheels from specialist model suppliers that could also do the job. I just need to weather the vehicles back now, though that may be some time in the future

Some good looking stuff here

After these, I intend to get back to work and paint up the other super odd tanks I have pictured earlier as they are still in that raw condition of needing more painting done to them. Then, they will also be given numbers and markings.

Oh, I plan on a mass army pic, or pics as i am thinking at the amount of tanks and troops waiting for painting, I will fill an entire 6' table with about 2 dozen plus tanks and vehicles, about 200men and other parts of the army.

jep, hostile, cold but still beautiful to behold...
sometimes when i was in duty, the coldness i could shun out of my thoughts and just behold the white beauty of the winterlands when lieing in my muld to look out...
but to much of a good thing isn´t good for long^^...

LOL! Becaus of what I was, I have avoided adding the Deathstrike Missile to my collection, too many memories of rotten duty, off duty was the best times, but I was a Pershing Missile Crewman, many did not like that being in Neu Ulm, I can tell you that!

I might add it and paint all green and call it the Big Pickle, just like those damned Nukes!

we had to wear it while cleaning up cars and tanks in the cold winter nights... for hours. to be honest nothing is as stupid as living as a soldier. the long boredom and when you get really tough luck you get shot at for a dollar a day...not what i think is something to aim for...but as they say to each its own...
i´m pretty glad i´m well over the whole issue. and following our news here in germany my sons wont have to jion the force...only if the want to...

i guess your job was pretty concentrated dullness, am i right...
in our unit, when we didn´t have to clean tanks for mock up whe mastered the art in sleeping with our foreheads on the tabledesk...a whole group of soldiers like 10 men with their heads on the desk resting...when called out of our rooms for attention we all had inprints of the table edge on our foreheads...very funny for us, but our sarge was furious...

LOL! yeah they do! all part of their job I guess. Oh the US Army will keep you pretty busy all day, if not working on the missiles and their truck beds, then the rest of the Battery vehicles helping the mechanics, or the armorer cleaning up the small arms of the battery, janitoring the barracks and all of that. Rest was for off duty hours.

We were even aware that your army could have a beer in your lunch break! Yes we were jealous of that, and I hjave been tempted to get pics of one of the most infamous units in the Khadrovian Army.....Vassily and his Violators, infamous for showing up in battles as a reserve unit in Cityfights out of manhole covers and drunk on "Wodka" and then blowing up several tanks by the end of the battle. I will have to showcase them when done, I mixed Cadians with SM parts to make their carapace, and Vassily has a Hellpistol and chain toothed power sword. (he really should have a T-hammer as he took one from a SM he killed in HtH! awesome dice rolls for that win!) I mention them in this tank thread for they were the anti-tank squad from hell, always showing up on turn 3 or 5, and we all joked how they were raiding the "Wodka" from the senior officer stores, my friend who lost the most tanks from these guys made a token for them, two crates with bottles he made by cutting the fins off of mortars!

An officer eh? you won't get respect until after you get out of that gold "Butter" bar and make like captain. Just saying.

like shaso said, until your captain your a jerk for nearly anyone. you will earn yourself respect quite the hard way... its easier for sargents...mabe because of the screaming^^. had some crappy would be lieutenants in my time...always thought they could rule the world...instead it was always the sarge doing the actual work...

as for drinking beer on duty, they would chuck me into the tanty if i would have been found out. that saying i had my fair share of booze while serving...otherwise it was sometimes too boring so when with to much guys to be good for you you start drinking...i like the us army for having mixed ranks of sex. thats definatly an improvement.and speaking of tanty, when on guard duty we had to prisoners, if someone was imprisoned. when we had to go there than the first thing in the night we did was play disco for the inmates...all the while staying guard we could have been sleeping instead. so we figuered when we cant sleep they shouln´t too...mind you they where only drunks and deserters. sometimes some fighter but nothing like disobeying orders, would´nt have done it then...

at shaso:
did i miss your vodka platoon or just missunderstood you there?^^
