This seemed like a good idea when I bought this online, I thought the Toons style design was quite fun and might work as a steampunk tank, but now I am not so sure. This Meng Toons King Tiger is more likely to work as a Weird War II tank.
The model itself took a few minutes to build, really not very many parts.
The tracks are soft rubber so they can actualy work, but I do not want that, so I have glued the wheels in place.
When it came to painting, I originally did a green and brown cammo pattern with my airbrush but I did not like it. So I went back and did a dark gray that I will highlight a bit.
As previously posted, I went for plain German grey. I still have to decide if I am going to add some transfers.
The mech frenzy continues, with the Westwind Jotun being the next one I wanted to get finished.
German grey I think for this chap, nothing fancy, just grey.
This was a simple olive paintjob really as I wanted it to be an American Mech.
I may yet add a white star transfer or two.
There is a mech frenzy going on at the moment, I have a small collection of Westwind mechs that were the result of a Kickstarter some time ago. They have been sitting up on a shelf, undercoated, but unfinished for far too long.
I added a heavy machine gun to the top of this Mech to give it a bit of defensive fire, I just need to get some suitably American colours on to it. That will be olive green then.
This West Wind quad tracked gun is a model that will fit into several games, Weird War II, Steampunk and Sci-Fi. So I want to paint it in a generic colour that will fit any army scheme. It was originally planned for my robotic Mechanica army, so I suspect it will be finished in grey or Gun Metal.
When I need a break from painting the rather large transport, I am returning to the excellent Westwind Mechs.
I am still deciding what colours to go for, one will likely be for my British Steampunk force so may be a patriotic red, white and blue. The other may get done in grey.
I had been doing a good job of keeping away from Kickstarters until a friend sent me a link this morning for one ending in a few hours…
This is a West Wind Kickstarter for some great Weird War II Mechs and I can’t resist a good Mech, or three.
I like the West Wind SOTR range and these new models will also be usable in Konflict 47, Steam Wars and some of the freebie stretch goals will be great in games like Rogue Stars.
As if cool Mechs are not enough, I like the look of this German ball tank, the Panzerkampfrad.
I am wondering if I can make up some rules for these old Warzone Purple Shark jet bikes for Konflikt ’47.
Maybe some sort of flying jeep profile, light armour but fast.
I have quite a few Capitol Warzone models painted up in US colours that I will have to proxy in to an army list.
