Tidying up 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. 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.
After giving the model a spray undercoat I touched up the black undercoat with a brush and some Chaos Black.


The next stage will be the basecoat. I am unsure at this point if I will use a spray or a brush.

Undercoating the Grot Tanks

The lunatic product of the deranged imaginations of grot riggers and scavs that have spent far too long basking in the insane genius of the Big Meks, Grots Tanks are diminutive armoured vehicles made to imitate the far larger Ork Wagons and Tanks.
The set contains four different variant chassis, tracks, exhausts and turrets as well as four fantastic Grot Tank Kommandaz and 5 different, incredibly shooty, weapon options.

I picked up a set of Grot Tanks on a recent visit to Warhammer World. After washing the resin, I then looked at the four main bodies and tracks deciding which was going to go with which. I then constructed and stuck the tanks together.
The next stage was a white undercoat

This combination, especially the turret had a very German Tiger tank or Panzer IV look to it. I decided to arm it with a Big Shoota and a Rokkit Launcha (as it has a secondary weapon bay in the hull. I do like the tracks that I’ve used for this model.

I picked up a set of Grot Tanks on a recent visit to Warhammer World. After washing the resin, I then looked at the four main bodies and tracks deciding which was going to go with which.
This combination, probably combine my least favourite pieces of the entire set and as a result I put them altogether in one tank. If I was to get a second set, I would probably use this for conversion using parts from the Ork plastic kits. The hull for me is too “tall” whilst the tracks aren’t that bad, they are my least favourite fo the four as they look rather lightweight. I really don’t like the turret which is too Dalek like for me.

One of the problems you can have with Forge World models is that the resin is more brittle than plastic. The sprue lugs are also much “bigger” so as a result is possible to damage the model. As you can see from this close-up of the track, I did manage to snarl up the track.

I don’t think it will show too much, but shows you do need to be careful.

After putting the model together and adding turrets, the next stage was the undercoat. I did a two part undercoat of white and black.
Black was used for the tracks and to provide shadow, whilst the top of the model was done with a white undercoat.



The next stage will be the basecoat. I am unsure at this point if I will use a spray or a brush.
