Tanks... I've always been a fan. From WWI iron behemoths to WWII's powerhouses they have always amazed me.
I have built a few scale panzers but for a Krieg mobilized army what could not be more interesting.
This is a work in progress of a Destroyer from Forgeworld. It's Stug 'look' is a favorite. As the story goes... it is supposed to be some sort of archaic weapon and I chose to weather the paint appropriately. For a Krieg army I am very keen to get hold of a filter for the rear engine cover but unfortunately these are not available separately from Forge World so I may have to rebuild one from a Super Heavy Tank filter kit. Back in the day- 20+ years ago- I seem to remember GW offering a service where each white metal part was itemised and could be purchased individually, if only Forge World could adopt this.
Next stage washes and dust...

More Gripping Beast Saga Vikings joining the warband. The warlord was a lot of fun with a raised base and terrain with a scratchbuilt arrow and axe along with a section of ruin. As most of the weapon hands are just sleaved sections I have been resculpting thumbs to hold the spears and axes in place. Also a sculpted grip for the shield- a minor detail but I think it is essential for the warlord. Nine down, around eleven to go.
