#Dreadtober and some tankbustas
I had some time to work on my Toxicrene again this week but unfortunately the move has taken another 2 paint casualties. So in the meantime I thought I would build out some tankbustas.
First up, I did get the under coat for the carapace, claws, and tentacles finished.
After that, I painted the toxinsacs, feeder tendrils, and claws. He is coming along. I hope to get the paints to keep working on him. It is going to be tight getting him completed during this month. but he is coming along.
I never had tankbustas and I really didn't want to pay the $90 that Games workshop wants for ten of them so it is time to kit bash.
My first busta was made with a common boy with a rokkit stick. I had taken the rokkit from the stick to be used by a grot tank so I added a new one. since I couldn't find the correct left arm for the stick, I took the arm from a shoota boy. To do this, I needed to trim the hand off so the new arm fits in correctly.
For the second one, I wanted to have him strong arming the rokkit stick. Like the last one, I trimmed off the left hand and then cut the right arm off and attached a new arm. Then used a mine laying arm for the left arm.
I can't have tankbustas without rokkit pistols.This is just a couple of sluggas with the clips and muzzles taken off. Add some rokkits and he is ready for killin.
This brings my total up to six. I need to build 4 more. I want to make another pistol boy. I also want some squigs to round out the unit. I am avoiding the tank hammers since they die every time they use them. These guys can just stay back ad shoot.
That is all I have this week. I hope to get some work done on the toxicrene this weekend. Catch yall next week!
