I finally have the new Mantic Tunneler from their Kickstarter which ended exactly two years ago.
It is quite a nice looking kit and appears to snap together but there are no instructions. There seem to be some optional parts in the kit, I really can’t remember what I was expecting anyway or what the options are meant to be. I will have to Google some instructions or maybe just some other models finished by other people.This image seems like a good place to start.
Apparently I may actually get this Mantic Kickstarter model soon. The Kickstarter ended a few weeks shy of TWO YEARS ago. This was the only model I wanted in their Warpath range as I though it would make a good tunneler for my Steam Wars Mechanica army.
So with luck it may arrive before the end of September.
At the same time I was undercoating the Clockwork Dragon, I undercoated my two AT-43 Karman Buggy’s for use in Steam Wars. I hope the cockpit detail is intact.
Now I need to decide how to finish them off.
There is the monthly Dragon Rampant painting challenge currently on the go on Facebook so I will use this as encouragement to paint my six Tir-na-Bor Knights of Khor.
I have also got busy with the Karman conversions that have been sitting around for about six months, a bit of undercoat for the cockpits and the nose cowlings.
I just needed a break from building the large transporter and actually spend some time painting something.
I am not planning to have many living models in the Steam Wars Mechanica army, just a few unscruplous types who ultimately control the automotans for their own nefarious objectives.
One of the models I really like was a professor type model from the Dystopian Legons range along with his Igor style man-servant carrying a masssive contraption of some sort.
Having seen the professor on screen blown up larger than life, I really think I need to paint his face better, eyes and teeth required!
The man-servant model makes a good Drone Controller or engineer, pefect for keeping the automotans in full working order.
One has to like multi use models. These Aberrant Games robots can be used in Rogue Stars and double up for Medium AP armed bots in my Mechanica force for Steam Wars.
These have been modified a bit by removing one forearm and mounting the heavy weapon at the elbow.
These were provided courtesy of Tony from Aberrant Games from their Rezolution range.
This old Games Workshop model is going to be used as a Sniper Bot for my Mechanica force. By adding a Spotter Drone, it will make a sniper team for use in Steam Wars.
