Showcase: Boomdakka Snazzwagon
Over the weekend I built and painted my Boomdakka Snazzwagon. This was a fun kit and I am eager to find out how it does on the table.
I decided to go with yellow on this buggy. I despise painting yellow but after what felt like 6 layers it seemed to turn out pretty good. I did a pit of wet blending on the flames. I was not sure how well it would turn out but again I was pretty happy.
I built it in two parts: the main body and the roof with gunner. This allowed be some extra room to paint the details inside the cab that I would not have ben able to get. There is a lot of character in this model and I would hate to see it go unpainted.
If the stars stay aligned, I will get to try out this unit as well as dragsta and wartrike. The 9 shots with -2 AP is interesting. I would think a couple of shots should get through as well as the 2D6 cover ignoring grenades. The last bit I like about this unit is the built in -1 to hit bubble. This extra durability might help it stay on the battle field just a bit longer.
That is about it, I got to start up some grots since I was still in a orky mood. I want to look at my current army ad figure out what I still have left to paint so I can field a painted army. Have a good week.
