2nd Goblin Chariot

This one is a bit of a medley. I got most of the parts used here in a job lot I bought, some parts came from my bits box and other from eBay.

The whip toting driver is from the MD1 Goblin King´s Chariot set. The archer one is a goblin wolf rider whom I got without a mount.

Chariot itself is MD6 Goblin Battle Chariot with spear chariot sides. I got it without wheels and used some plastic ones (from 90´s Tiranoc chariot I think) as replacement. Some drilling and glueing was required to fit those scythes. The wolves are from that MD6 set too.

Here´s my other goblin chariot. More pics in this posting.

Some Scenery pieces

As I´ve understood one of the most oldhammery things around is making scenery from scrap. I´ve been wanting to give it a try for some time now and this week I finally got myself to do it. Here are the first few pieces I´ve thrown together. More will surely follow.

Pea sous can used as an oil tank or something. White base, Nihlakh Oxide on that, sprayed with
rust effect paint. Some highlights with orange and yellow. Dark shade for leaking stuff. A couple
of Tau bits to add some variety to the form.

Good stuff for an inpatient painter like me. Leaves a nice rough surface.

 Some rusty pipes made out of plastic soda straws. Same method as above.

More pipes but this time with a sheet of corrugated metal.

 Metal fence. Going to make a few more of these.
With some variety to desing of course.

That same fence from other side. 

These should go pretty nicely with my desert themed IG. Now I just need more!

Heavy support

As per rules RT era IG support weapons must be crewed by tactical squads, assault squads, Adeptus Mechanicus or servitors. As I do not want to invest in a seperate squad to man the support weapons I intend to use the servitors I have in that role. Because of their cybernetic enhancements each servitor count as two crewmen.

The first support weapon of Bravo Company is this twin multi melta armed Tarantula. The equipment profile in rules for Tarantula gives las cannon as the only weapon option but won´t let that bother me. And I like the fact that my 2nd Tactical Platoon has multi meltas as heavy weapons too. Supported by this Tarantule they propably are the anti-tank detachment of the Company.

Pretty simple paint job: Desert yellow spray for base, black for body and metal for
guns. Light shading with Agrax and the highlights with diluted  Kislev Flesh.

A little bit of red, green and yellow to bring out some details. The servitor
