Forge World Executioner

I had a couple of people ask me what the brass triangles on the side of the tank were for so I thought I'd post an early WIP shot of the side skirt armor. I say "early" because this is only about 50% completed... on one side.

I need to bring the back of the support rail up a bit to correct the lay of the bottom line. There will also be secondary supports where the holes in the center of each panel are... assuming I remembered to line them up correctly.

The side skirts are going to get covered in litany text from bow to stern and then appropriately weathered and chipped. I won't be attaching them permanently so that I can get to the tank itself.

The super-detailing looks really good. This is the kind of stuff I always want to do to my own tanks, but I end up losing patience and simply wanting to get the damn things painted :D

BTW, how fragile is that brass? It looks like if you looked at it wrong, it would literally get bent out of shape.

The brass is just as fragile as it looks. It's 0.01" or 0.254 mm thick -- which isn't much!

But it's the right size for what I'm trying to do and is the size I usually work with anyway -- but, yeah, it takes some getting used to.

I think if I did ALL of my tanks like this I'd a'splode!

This just keeps getting better and better. Can't wait to see it finished.

Is it for the UKGD?

USGD - and I can't wait to see it finished either. I'm almost afraid to paint it!
