I have always loved the Sabre defense platforms from Forgeworld. The rules are also very strong, and I have been dying to use them for some time.
As much as I love the models, I wanted to create some weapons that looked like the old WW2/ Vietnam War Era anti aircraft emplacements similar to this:
I have had some beat up old sentinels lying around for some time and when I was looking at them I figured they would make a brilliant turret to house the anti aircraft weapons.
I started off by building the tripod mounting that I had used for my autocannon teams, before affixing n upturned 25mm base to the topside, then simply gluing the sentinel cockpit into place. I then used some old plastic cuppolas from the Leman Russ sprue to mount the autocannons on to. I took some WIP shots, but I cant find them at the moment, I will hopefully find them and put them up at a later date.
