I've decided to go with the stowage version, mainly because I already went through the trouble of smoothing out the roof. I still want to do a gun version, so of course the solution to that is to buy moar kits!

Looks brilliant, most 2CV's had a folding cloth roof here. So cutting out the roof and sculpting a cloth roll at the back would work well. Also could still have stowage on bonnet.

I rather thought that was a cloth roof, but I think for my purposes I'm going to treat it as a steel roof.

<edit> The more I think about it, the more I'm leaning toward going back to treating it as a cloth roof. It makes sense from a fluff perspective for the world I'm creating. That means I'll have to come up with a way to model the fabric, as I've sanded the roof smooth...

Also, I so need to build a model of this:

Still a lot of GS work to be done.


Possible placement of stowage.

If you're going with the stowage then I'd say you want to keep this version as a steel roof....as you said, moar kits can be got

@Monkeytroll
Moar kits have been got. Mangled English aside, I ordered 3 more, plus another Citroen 11CV and a Renault 4CV.

I found a large wheel that matches the look of GW's wheels!

The top two rows are from Zinge Industries (he does make a mid-size off-road tire, but apparently I neglected to buy any, something I'll have to remedy), the two on the bottom left are GW and the two on the bottom right are from Spellcrow. The Spellcrow ones have a wee bit smaller diameter than Zinge's large tires, but it's close enough to work. And with a little carving of the inner rim, Zinge's hubcaps fit as well. Now if I can just convince Zinge to make a version of his large military tire that is the same width as the other two large tires...


Now I just have to buy another 20 or so of Spellcrow's large tires to build my fleet of civilian tractor-trailers. My poor wallet...

Here is a long-overdue update featuring some early pics of a Taurox conversion. I haven't really made much progress in the last two months. I really hate it when real life interferes with my hobby time.

First up, moar car kits. One will be for wasteland raiders with a roof-mounted heavy stubber, one will be converted to look like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2d/Citroen_2CV_Lieferwagen_1.jpg
And one may end up being looted by Orks.


I'm still in the planning stages for my Taurox conversions, therefore everything is just being held together with tape and blu-tac. I'm planning for this to be an Adeptus Arbites vehicle.


My initial thought was to keep the sliding doors, but now I'm thinking of covering it over with armoured panels and putting in some gun ports like these ones: http://zinge.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=18_127&product_id=551

For the rear entry, I'm torn between using a Chimera-style ramp or a pair of doors.


I'm also planning on building a second conversion which will be an armoured truck for transporting guilder payments between towns. It will probably have heavier armour and a vault-style door in the back.

Should I keep the turret mounted on the cab (in which case it obviously wouldn't be able to fire to the rear), or should I mount it on the passenger compartment?

In any case, it will be some time before I am able to do any more work on this project as I am moving at the end of the month, and will in all likelyhood be moving again 3 months later. It may be into autumn before I am able to dive into this project again.

Well I like it, looks "meant to be". The wheels are spot on and the gunport idea is a goer, definately like that one.

I'm back, with some WIP ork buggies. I finally got my work desk set up (only three months after moving) and I've been itching to do some conversions.

So here are the basic frames for my buggies:




This is more or less the set up. I may have the driver reclined a wee bit more, and I'll be adding roll bars and exhaust pipes.

I'm thinking of using Zinge's V6 engine: http://zinge.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=613

One of my civilian cars was looted by Deathskulls.


Ignore the fact that it's a Goff driving. I have to paint up a Deathskull driver.


Of course there will be a magnetic weapon mount.


Still lots of work ahead, but I'm pretty happy with the direction of things so far.

Thanks lads. Here's a small update on my first buggy.

With some bitz to be added...


The beginnings of buggy #2 can be seen in the background, because I can't just work on one project at a time.


The headlight that came with the 2CV kit was a royal pain in the to assemble.

Thanks Cam. Made some progress with my Deathskulls looted warbuggy. As with all my pics, you can click on 'em for a closer look.

Bitz ready for priming.


Loosely assembled for pics (some bitz using blu-tac). I'll paint it first before final assembly.


The grot is in for some hurt if the door slams shut again.


Mismatched headlights and Deathskull symbol.


The bumper is magnetic and can be replaced with a reinforced ram.


The hubcaps on the front wheels are from Zinge Industries.


Gunner's platform and stowage.


Worky bitz.


Now to paint it... unless I get distra... ooh, shiny.

Thanks for the comments. Here is a pic showing my process for painting the tires.



From left to right:
1. primed with Red Oxide primer and tire portion painted black
2. metal portions painted with Typhus Corrosion and drybrushed with Ryza Rust
3. metal portions lightly drybrushed with Pig Iron
4. washed with Agrax Earthshade
5. dusted with grey weathering chalk

I'm not sold on the Agrax wash. It really tones down the rust effect. Maybe I'll have to do another drybrush of Rust after the wash.

I'm also thinking of using the Army Painter Quickshade dip instead of the Agrax wash, as it will basically do the same effect and help protect the model as well.

Oh, and @Littletower, I do have plans for a train, but that project is down the road a ways. Watch this space.

Some work on buggy number two, as I haven't been in a painting mood lately.


What happens when you have a bunch of magnets and an opened box of super-sharp knife blades together in a drawer? A terrifying trap for unwary fingers, that's what.


Oh, and thanks for the comments. LOL Monkeytroll.

Thanks for the comments. My "drawer ornament" was in with a bunch of tools I don't use on a regular basis. It didn't draw blood, but one of the blades did slide under my fingernail just enough to get my attention.

Got the exhaust done on the other side. Just a few more details and this one is ready for painting.


The front glyph plate, bumper and weapon mounts are all magnetic.
