PAL: May & June: The Big Guns

Postby blackfly » Thu Jun 01, 2017 11:29 pm

How did we get all the way to June before posting the May & June PAL? I blame the May Day morriss dancers :drunk:

Any yet, here we are. The biggest guns in half the time (unless you're all secretly working on these projects anyway, patiently awaiting the posting in order to jump in an fill it with completed entries with weeks to spare).

Come see the gun show! From now until the end of June! :arrow:

For a novel interpretation, I'm thinking of doing the North Star cabin boy - a really small mini with a large pistol. That's a big gun, right?

This has been sat around like this since I picked it up for a song from a bloke on LAF

A 6 pounder anti tank gun, It will join my WW2 Commando force and provide some much needed punch as although I've been lucky with the PIAT (I took a Panther out, it took 6 turns to do so, but I took it out!) I need something that will do more than annoy the crew of the target vehicle.

Started the plastic Kara Black in Gnosis Armor from the 2012 Sedition Wars Kickstarter. Swapped the sad excuse for a head for one from Statuesque and the ugly sword for a resin vibro katana from Kromlech. Not real sure about what I'm doing with the color scheme yet.
Pushing threads to page 2 since 2001.

So...what do you think of that model?
