Renegade Ogryn Transport Pictorial
People seemed to really get a kick out of my post last week, concerning the conversion process of this Renegade Ogryn transport. I was able to take some better pictures recently, and I thought I would share them with you. Here is a rear-view, showing the hatch that I envision the Ogryn being released from:
I think the additional plastic card and conversion bits break up the profile of the Battlewagon chassis nicely. This photo does show some of the imperfect molding created by my use of the light weight spackle, but maybe a Renegade transport would display such slapdash welding work. In this picture, if you look at the right section of the "vision-slit/windshield" area, you can also see where I added the heavy flamer, in an effort to retain the idea of a hull mounted weapon. Again, I am well aware that this vehicle is quite larger than a standard Chimera, but then how else would Ogryn fit inside?
It is also worth mentioning that I finished off the last remaining models in my Vraksian Militia, topping off the collection at about 5k points. This means I am free to begin working on my newest collection, which is convenient, as a large box of Forgeworld resin arrived at my house yesterday. I am fairly happy with how these photos have turned out, which means that I am in good shape for photographing all of the many stages of my next project. After speaking with Old Shatter Hands over at The Tau of War, I think I may have the tips and tactics necessary to begin my putty work. While each model only has a small amount of greenstuff involved, 50 of the infantry will require it. I just need to stretch out, crack my knuckles, and get busy. Now where did I leave my resin-proof gas-mask?
