The second addition to the Crimson Fists is the Space Marines’ new AA tank model – the Hunter (or Stalker?).
I’m happy to announce that you can build both from the kit and switch versions by just changing the tops that go on the top hatch of the Rhino chassis. The guns don’t share any parts apart from that antennae bit you can see in the picture below:
This one bit is also meant to go onto the Stalker’s top, between the gun turrets. I really didn’t want to magnetize the rather unnecessary bit, especially as the Stalker top looks rather okay by itself without the antennae. That aside, the part would limit the rotation of the turrets more than the model does already.
Yeah, sadly both turret variants won’t allow for full 360° rotation which you’d thing is pretty important with firing at low-flying aircraft which move at high speed.
In the back I added a jerrycan, a welded-on box for stowage and tools and two metal tubes containing either additional missiles for the Hunter variant or replacement barrels for the Stalker variant’s guns.
You’ll notice that there is more dust and such on the outside hull than
on the ‘stilts’ because naturally, more dust and dirt would be thrown up
when the vehilce’s on the move rather than when it’s employed for
shooting at stuff.
So that’s that, hope you like the pictures! 🙂
Fantastic work, I'm a big fan of your weathering technique.
Do you have a tutorial for your weathering and battledamage? It looks like you beat the front fenders up with an exacto blade, but that might just be paint! Can't tell which makes that awesome!
Very nice. What colors did you use for the amber lenses?
Very nice piece as always.
I am a great fan of your crimson fists.
Thanks very much for the comments, guys!
For the lenses I use the same old recipe of Red Gore, Blood Red, some yellow and white paint and mixes, mixes, mixes.
As for the battle damage: It's all just paint. I did the actual hacking and drilling on one army a few years ago but in most cases I found that it just didn't add that much to the effect.
Utterly perfect look for the rebirth of my 20year old CF marine army. I have been looking for a style that has a "rebuilding rynn" look and this fits the build. My old marines are just all clean like with old style green grass bases… Well now that I have an airbrush and more skills time to redo them. Any chance of a tutorial on the paints you used etc? It would be greatly appreciated.
