With all the artillery from the Curious Constructs/Zinge Kickstarter a while back, I have have finally finished all the crew needed to get them on the table.
I think this is my Scrunt infantry finished. I still have a few vehicles to finish and a couple of Mechs to paint, but the army is nearly finished. Honestly…
I really liked the Rivet Wars Blight machine Gun and wanted to convert a couple for my Prussian Scrunts. I replaced the Rivet Wars gunner with a Scrunt tank commander model which fitted in perfectly.
I did not have to do much more to the model apart from raise the height of the machine gun a few millimeters so it lined up with the gunners hands.
I really like these models, they fit the style of the Prussian army perfectly.
I think I may have to go back and paint the rivets on the front.
I was in the process of painting this model and randomly caught an episode of Blackadder Goes Forth in which Captain Blackadder is accused as the The Pidgeon Murderer of Flanders. Brilliant.
This Prussian Scrunt HMG team is on a very big base, not something I like to do usually as positioning the model in a game can be tricky. The components of this set all link together so it was best suited on a large base.
I will have to make sure they get to set up behind some sandbags or in a big building!
I enjoyed making this model out of spare parts and the finished article came up well.
This prototype model can be used as any number of heavy weapon profiles in the Steam Wars universe, perhaps I could give it three special abilities and then randomly roll each turn to see which one is active! This would suit the “Disable”, “Impede” and “Shock” abilities that all inflict different effects on the target.
