Looted Repulsor Tank 2

Here is the current state of the Looted Repulsor.

Still a fair bit to do, but it has certainly moved on since the last post.

The one rear exhaust got replaced with an Orky one:



The other gubbins were added to the rear including the hear shields - one standard, one ork. These aren't glued in place.




One light got replaced and the left side of the tanks got up Orkified.

 


I then looked to the system to attach the trailer. Movement in two axis which will have to be enough.


Note the Grot door below to allow a Grot to head out and unhook the trailer if required (a volunteer I am sure).



So with the trailer in place it looks like this:



I will have to do a base for this as it isn't practical to use (or display) without one.

Rivet count now up to 1011.

Horus Heresy Weekender Exclusive Bag on eBay for Charity.

At the Horus Heresy Weekender the attendees get given a Horus Heresy bag of some kind.

This year it was a Legio Custodes back pack...


So I don't really need another bag.

It is now up on ebay.

However the main reason for this post is to spread the word, I decided that in light of the passing of Alan Bligh who was such a massive part of the Horus Heresy and Forge World in general I would list the bag as a charity auction. 100% of the money raised will go towards Cancer Research UK.

I did this previously with another bag to raise funds in honour of Terry Pratchett. It seemed a good idea to do it again.

As such please let anyone know who may be interested in bidding and hopefully we'll raise a few quid for a good cause in the name of someone who was both a great writer and a bloody nice man.

Looted Repulsor Tank 1

It's been a while since I have done one but I have started to loot a tank.

Very little in the way of planning, i'm just designing it as I go along.

Hull with magnetised weapon and drivers station,


WIP turret...



And with the main weapon in place:



The vehicles will also get a little trailer to drag around:




All for today, hopefully get more done to allow an update soon.

In the meantime if you want to see day to day progress keep an eye on my twitter feed - @Rictus40k

Oh, if you are interested Rivet Count is currently 481.
