Halftrack sentinel

I put the final details on my halftrack sentinel standin last night. Considering I put it together over 18 months ago, I'm quite chuffed that I've finally finished it. The original plan was to make three of them as a sentinel squadron but I'm now thinking that it'll be a one off as I already have a full sentinel squadron and I want to start work on my other projects.

It's going to be attached to the HQ section of 571 Infantry company as an escort and a nod to the old codex that let you take sentinels with your command section. That finishes of the command section, so expect a post sometime in the future showing off the command section in all it's glory.





 

Sorry the pics arn't brilliant, the light here today is terrible. Next up is going to be the final troops for 2nd platoon. They're already undercoated and sitting on my paint station, so they'll be coming real soon.

That's outstanding work.

That's some inspirational work. Makes me want to actually start that fallout wastelander patrol I've been kicking around forever :P

Really nice - I like it a lot.

Absolutely stellar! I've been looking forward to seeing this completed, and as usual you do not disappoint.

You've inspired me once again - I have a couple Land Speeder Storms in the bits boxes, I'll have to try something similar - they may work as the basis for a proxy Centaur or two!

Very nice work Colonel. Though I would add a guy with a buzzsaw to simulate the CC attacks it can get into :)

It really looks very good. I like the fact that you used a lot of GW parts so you can actually enter it in a tourney.
The pictures are great....about a thousand times better than any I have attempted to take.

Nice conversion. It works especially well because at first glance it doesn't look like a Land Speeder.

Mr.Esty said...

Totally convincing conversion!
I love it!

Oh, that's sweet, I remember seeing some concept sketches a while a go but I never expected anything that nice.

Thanks for the link mate.
