Leviathan Crusader Torso

There is not much to the body of the Leviathan Crusader, apart from the spine and a box for the arms and head to attach, that is about it.

I did have some new help during the build, the main problem was keeping anything that could hurt the little chap out of paws reach.

The finished torso looks like it was a Games Workshop design for the Grey Knights.

Just because I could, I have made up an LED circuit to provide lighting inside the helmet. It took longer to make the mounting for the on/off switch.

I am still a bit worried about undercoating the whole thing…

Leviathan Crusader Weapon

The is indeed a very big gun, but not the biggest that a Leviathan Crusader can carry.
The next weapon build will be the H.E.L. Cannon. That looks like it will be the height of an Imperial Knight.

Leviathan Crusader Started

This is a very big box of bits, the Dreamforge Leviathan Crusader.

I bought this model years ago as I thought it would go with my Grey Knights really well, the helmet design is a perfect match for later generation Grey Knight Terminators.

It is quite a complicated kit and it got put on a shelf to collect dust for a while. And I do mean a while.

I also had no idea how to go about painting it. As it is a fully articulated model, I thought I should paint each component before building, something that would take some time to do. This is another reason it has sat around for ages.

But now that I am playing 40K again and models the size of Imperial Knights actually have decent rules and I have an airbrush, I am building the damn thing.

So starting with the feet, I am working my way up the model. By the time I got to the top of the leg, I realised this will be considerably taller than an Imperial Knight. I think I will need a homebrew 40K profile for this model, something that is in between a Knight and a Titan.

Prussian Exo-Armour

In preparation for a large Steam Wars game, I had to finish off my latest Bob Olley Exo-Armour Scrunts from his recent Kickstarter.

I painted these up in the same dark blue to match the rest of the infantry, but these had loads more gun metal on the extensive armour!

With a total of ten models from the Kickstarter, I was able to organise three units of three models for Steam Wars and have one spare to be used as a Hero.

For a little more variety, I changed two close combat weapons, one on the Hero and one regular trooper.

I hope that these are the last models I will be adding to the Prussian Scrunts as there really are quite a lot of them now.

Exo-Armour Scrunts

My Bob Olley Exo-Armour Scrunts arrived a few weeks ago and I have been wanting to get them put together and ready for a game with the Prussian Steam Wars army.

I have two sets of the five models so plan to make three squads of three and one “hero” model.

I am currently mulling over how to dish out the various weapon arms. I think I will have one squad as very close combat orientated, one as ranged weapon specialist and one somewhere in the middle.

I have since trimmed off the tabs to make fitting them to bases a bit easier.
