Can you guess what this is?

I picked up a "painted" chimera in a trade at my local club. It was a bit damaged, it had lost it's lasguns and the turret wasn't quite right. So I wondered what else it could be used for and an idea popped into my head. I've done a bit of work on it, just a little more to do.



I've filed off the turret mount and lasguns mounts, added a vent, stowage, antenna, search light, tow hooks and stowage hoops. I've got a little more work to do on it, but it's 95% there. So, can you guess what this is going to be?

Work continues on my autocannon squad, they're almost done now, just got to do their black armour and I'll be starting on the lascannon squad. Going on campaign continues to grow, although I'm needing pics of campaign maps, so if any of you can help, drop me a line.

Is this going to be a custom Salamander?

Master Darksol said...

Mobile HQ? i.e. for objective missions?

Col. Corbane said...

Salamander - Nah
Mobile HQ - Nah

;-)

You're going to have to start thinking outside the box guys, or at least outside the IA books.

Trojan - Nah!

Plug - sure mate.

I've deleted tolcrothlogan post as he knows me really well which made it easier for him and he got it right. Any of you guys who've already posted and now know the answer, please don't spoil it for the rest of my visitors.

Tol - what you like!

LOL obviously its an ice cream van what else could iy be!

I managed to see his comment, that's a genius idea! Looking forward to seeing it painted up now. Didn't realise just how outside the box you meant :P

I'm really new to this whole blogging thing. It's mainly going to be miniature related but I'm going to be putting up some other gubbins I find interesting as well (mainly psychology stuff).

@Soundwave - cracking blog mate, I was reading it yesterday. I did say thinking outside the box - lol

@Tol - cracking idea mate, how about a CCC

"Combat Confectionery Chimera". Sweeties for the troops, you know how us squadies loves those sweeties.

Anything with a vent means a heat source is inside. Mobile kitchen?

Kitchen - nice guess but - Nah

I like how now all the obvious ones are gone, people are starting to deduct what it is. The clues are there guys.

Its a field brothel, a library for those idle moments full of black library titles or possibly a pizza delivery van from an underhive somewhere.

I was gonna say a mobile light house to fend off land sharks, but now I am going to have to go with a large medical transport, of some sort...

Mercer said...

Dude, how did you do the lasguns removal? I like those replacment plates. Looks nice.

Col. Corbane said...

Wayhay - Gorefest got it, even if Tol let it out earlier. Yep, it's an ambulance. I'll be posting a couple of pics later with the stretchers on.

Mercer, the lasguns were in place, just the barrels were snapped. I trimmed the mounting back and then filed it flat. Hope that helps.

Tol, field brothel - now there's an idea for a future brothel and it'd make a hell of a objective for a game.

Soundwave said...

Ideas like these are why I could never fully give up 40k. Too much opportunity for insane things to be passed up :P
