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.
Being a Marvel fan, I thought I would borrow The Winter Child model from Dust range and paint him up in Iron Man colours for my Mechanica force.
I removed the star from his chest and some other unnecessary Soviet iconography.
He also has several choices of base, two flying bases and a nearly finished standard 25mm base.
I picked up these Crooked Dice drones at Salute a few months ago, which should be good as Repair Drones.
Literally painted silver with grey claws and a red dot, then inked.
I enjoyed using this Rogue Stars crew, a Golum, a Zoat, a robot, a Zykhee and an alien of some sort.
There is still no substitute for good armour in Rogue Stars, once a model takes damage, its effectiveness reduces very quickly. Apart from armour, the Difficult Target ability is the best defensive protection against incoming ranged attacks. For melee, Weapon Master is the equivalent. But of course Armour benefits a model from both ranged and melee attacks.
We will just keep playing with 300 points so we can tool up our crews that way.
Over the last few weeks I have built and painted up twenty more Automotan infantry. That makes a total of lots, with still some more to do.
Some of the models will be made as specific crew for some heavy weapons, I think I have four more that can be made without weapons, so can be converted to hold some controllers of some sort.
Yet another spare Karman model, in this case Cornelius, allowed me to convert another for use in Rogue Stars.
I have not worked out a profile for this chap yet, but I reckon he will work out as a lot of points.
Things have been a bit slow with my King Buggy conversions as I had to find some larger magnets to fix inside the wing section.
I have now rebuilt the wings and am pretty much ready to rebuild the fuselage and undercoat them. I may paint the inside of the cockpit before I glue the fuselage together and then mask the cockpit to spray the rest.
