This is a heavily converted model for use in the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop game system. It will count as an Imperial Guard Basilisk, and uses the actual Earthshaker cannon from the kit. The Chimera chassis that came in the kit went to build my manticore/hydra tank, so I wanted to make the cannon into a rolling piece of artillery. My original vision was built to resemble a German .88 battery from WWII, but the scale of the finished model was too big to be a Basilisk. After a complete re-design I ended up with the more standard two wheeled piece above. For WYSIWYG purposes: The smoke launchers are on the gun, the heavy bolter and searchlight are on the tug. The crew are only decoration, and serve no game purpose. The legs of the gun do fold, and the tug will connect to tow it around, but again in game terms this serves no real purpose. Comments welcome, thanks for looking. -Fisher
Here I created glass leaves and then attached them onto an old piece of wood of which I found on dartmoor.
I then took a photo with Sharpitor in the background- taken near Sheepstor.
I'm quite happy with this photo- but realised that its still really hard to take photos of items made of glass! The idea was to take photos showing how the leaves would capture the light but this was diffciult to do.
In honor of todays tournament I present to you the Sight Ward bracelet! I actually made this before the tournament even started today, I just find it kinda funny that it works with todays theme of cheering ward kills.
