refitting the hydra trucks- Wyveryn stand in.

So with the release of the new Astra Militarum book, the hydras are now looking a little less effective. However the new wyveryns are brilliant. Although eventually i will be getting my grubby mits on the awesome new kit, i wanted a stop gap to allow me to field these artillery pieces. This is what i have so far...

I decided to go with a similar look to the russian rocket trucks- the BM-21 Grad. The only slight change i made was to encase a larger percentage of the tubes in the launch box. I added service hatches to the top and glued them into position, one angled for firing the other for transport.

With the riveting completed. I hope to get these painted up this evening. :)

  1. I like the idea of this. Although the original Grad's were "slightly" less accurate then the Wyvern is going to be. Hehehe.

  4. Oh, bliss.

    Which raises the question: rather than the taurox, why didn't GW just make these damn trucks?

  6. Thanks guys. I am planning a little taurox conversion myself, but still ironing out the details. I like the taurox, just don't like the tracks all that much. Birk, growing older is inevitable, growing up is optional. do what you love! :)
