So being the bad hobbyist instead of working on my Dreadtober entry I decided to finish up my ten Tankbustas.
So, last time I had completed six tankbustas and needed four more to round out the squad. I wanted two more rokkit launchas boy, a nob and another rockkit pistol boy. What I ended with was 3 rokkit Launcha boys, a nob, and a rokkit gauntlet boy.
The nob was pretty straight forward. Just your standard nob with powerclaw. I added the arm with stick bombs to help tie him in with the other boys.
For the next three, I had to make a mold of one of my rokkits and cast the missiles for them. then I had to piece together the rokkit launchas for them.
One was and actual rokkit launcha that lost its rokkit.
One was a burna.
and one was a big shoota.
Over all I like the look of them. I will probably add a blast shield to the last one to keep up the look and to break up that flat space.
My last boy is a counts as rokkit pistols. I found the stick bomb launcha, from a battle wagon kit I think, and decided to try to make some rokkit gauntlets for him and I like how it turned out.
The gauntlets are from the black ork kit.
I was hoping I could find two of the stick bomb launchas but I only had the one. So, I had to subsutite. I took the twin slugga from the boys box and trimed off the grip and then added a bomb to each of the barrels. I then felt it needed something more so I added a control rod from the grip to the launcha. I think once I tidy it up a bit and add some paint it will be pretty cool.
Hopefully now I can get back on track with the toxicrene. I need to highlight him and flock the base. With only a few days left I hope I can finish before the moth is up. Wish me luck.
