Yeah - I looked and looked for something that said "Pintle mounted Vulcan Mega Bolter" no such luck - but Titan BS is still high enough to be Space Marine-esque so you will be averaging 66% hits (or 9.9 out of 15 for the mathhammers out there).

So don't count the mega bolter out.

Trick number 2 - run your Warhound the extra D6" if the Vulcan is out of range to get it into range for the next turn.

Just some thoughts

Yep - so this means 2.5 out of 15 dice which I round up (because I am an optimist) to 3. So usually 3 hits against flyers. And then (for most flyers) 4's to glance, 5's and 6's to pen. Then cover saves for flyers. So generally 1 gets through and then you just need to roll another 6 to knock it out of the sky.

I'm not saying it is perfect science, but when you don't have anything else to deal with flyers the Vulcan cannons can help.

You were reading my mind. More coming tonight.

I'm at a point where I am just going to finish it and display the final build pictures. The arm weapons and mounts have taken up my time recently.

I'll start with some pictures of the weapons and the tower and then, once I finish the upper body, I'll post that tonight too.

I plan to base coat this Great Gargant, but I wanted to show you my progress before I do. Here are more pictures to entertain you.

Full Body skinned and half riveted:

Close up of Head:

Image

Close up of Belly Gun:

Image

And finally the Kill Cannon or Deff Cannon or mega Dakka-Dakka-supa killy cannon:

Image

I will complete the other arm joint tomorrow and the supa-lifta droppa and all of the rest of the rivets :shock: and will bring this down with me to Welland on Saturday.

Hope this has served as good inspiration for all of you scratch-builders.

With the completion of this model I can move on to all of my other Apocalypse projects.

Yep - I like to reduce, re-use and recycle. So when I needed an "Eye" piece I tore my broken, digital camera apart and pulled out the lens.

Voila - 1 gaze of Mork (or Gork)
