Static defence- IG Auto cannon teams under way!

I have managed to scrape a few more hobby hours together, and have got cracking on the Infantry platoons heavy weapons teams. I am going to build six auto cannons for this platoon.

I hope to build my auto cannons like this...




...Which is a design I borrowed (stole) from the wonderful LeMediko, a tremendous hobbyist and painter on many of the WIP forums. I like the idea of remote control sentry guns, so rather than mount a seat on them, I will use a remote controlled fire system.

So far I have focused on batch producing all the pieces to build the weapons platform. 





Also, I have completed a quick mock up of the Heavy Mortar carriage. Still a good bit of work to carry out on this, but I would like to get it finished up relatively soon and get back to my hoplite, which sadly has been neglected due to a lack of inspiration. I cant quite seem to get to grips with how it is going to work.



I also managed to quickly paint up a rough rider, bringing the squad count up to seven. I have three more that need built, and have added them to my to do list as well. 

That is all for now. Hope to have more to show off soon. :)

  7. I have yet to find him anywhere outside the work in progress forum and warseer I'm afraid. His work is simply stunning, especially his trucks and colossus.
