Basecoating the Grot Mega Tank

I picked up the Grot Mega Tank at GamesDay 2010. It was available in limited numbers, but I was lucky enough to pick one up, before they sold out. I really do like this model alongside the Grot Tanks.

Hammered together out of junk, spare Mekboy know-wotz and unbridled Grot enthusiasm, the Grot Mega Tank adds even more firepower to the battlefield madness that has come to be known as a Grotzkrieg, terrifying Imperial Tacticians, Eldar Farseers and Chaos Warlords alike.

The model is very ship like with battleship style turrets and a prow shaped bow. It is a very ramshackle vehicle and looks like (as it should) if the grots have just thrown it together from parts lying around the battlefield and stuff stolen from a Mek workshop.

So after letting this model languish too long in a box, I got it out again to see if I could finish painting it. Having re-undercoated the model and starting the basecoat I finished off the hull with Ushabti Bone.

I painted the turret weapons with Leadbelcher. I also painted the main mast and funnel with Leadbelcher as well.


I had painted the tracks and the rear engine deck with Gorthor Brown. I painted the rear exhausts with Leadbelcher.

I still have some work to do on tidying up the basecoat, the depth charge and other gaps on the model.

I also need to find the deck Krew and get them undercoated and painted.
