Forge World Executioner

I spent the weekend detailing this bad boy with the intention of finally entering something into the Games Day competition. Assuming I can justify the air fare expense I plan to make it out this year and take this, and possibly my Empire Steam Tank, with me.

I am processing a set of etched brass panniers that will go on the turret. Once those are on I'll look at adding a whip antenna. I'm also finishing the design of a set of etched brass side skirt armor I plan to add.

The model will be painted in the Krieg greys and then whitewashed for winter camo. I will add wall-to-wall litany text to the side skirt armor.

I plan to make a base of broken cobblestones and urban rubble and will, of course, give the whole thing in a generous coating of snow and mud. Lots of mud.

Awesome! I love the cable and trappings to hold it in place. Look forward to seeing it finished.

See you at Games Day!

Thanks - those cable clips were a pain and I still want to clean them up a bit.

If I can make Games Day I'll be the guy wandering around in the Secret Weapon Miniatures t-shirt :)

I'm working on an executioner myself, although mine won't end up anywhere near as good as yours.

Keep the posts coming mate, I'm interested in seeing how this turns out.

Echoing the above, the cable looks superb, can't wait to see how this looks when finished.

@Col. Corbane: I love your blog, mate - and you can be sure that I'll be updating as often as I can.

@Paul: Thanks - getting feedback here makes me feel better about the cables. I've already convinced myself they're rubbish. *BUT NO!* I'll keep going as soon as my brass panniers arrive.

Cheers mate, that means a lot to me, especially with it coming from you.
