Khador Gun Carriage by MechanicalHorizon Khador Gun Carriage by MechanicalHorizon
Warmachine Khador Gun Carriage Battle Engine for Privateer Press

Made with plastic card, green/brown stuff, Apoxy Sculpt and aluminum tubing. The parts in grey are resin castings since they are duplicated I only had to make one then use a casting for the other side.

One of my favorite sculpts so far...

Final production model to be made from resin and cast metal.

Concept art by Chris Walton

Model painted by Matt DiPietro

I just love Chris’s concept and what you have done with it. After the fist pic I had some issues with the idea of the horses. Would have preferred an industrial jack or an old berserker pulling the cart. But ok, I understand the reasoning. Corticies are low, horses not. Made my peace with that some time ago.

But as much as I love the model I hate the two identical horses in such a prominent pose. They are horrible for the overall impression of the model.

I understand the reasoning that the price of the model would have increased with two different horses, but I would gladly have paid more to get the extra pose. Wrong decision here in my opinion.

Still a great model, thou. :)

With a 120mm base I see no reason not to convert the model to be pulled by a jack (or two!).

Yeas, it would have been nice to have different steeds, but cost was an issue. I was thinking we could have made one horse "half" identical with the other half different but we thought of that after it had already been done.

Yeah, we thought about making two separate horses, but that would have increased the manufacturing cost and then the final retail cost.

You could always replace one of the horses with another armored Khador horse though.
