GB 61 - Dragon's Teeth - Completed

Post by IG_Guardsman » Sat Feb 07, 2015 11:42 am

I've been playing World of Tanks recently and there is a map that came to my mind when this build was announced - Siegfried Line and most particularly the dragon's teeth tank traps around the city. I've tried to pass them with different tanks and got stuck every time ( got myself killed twice ) Damn effective. Some of the details had to bechanged or the thing was going to take up to half of the table. The space between the teeth is enough for a regular soldier to pass or stand and provide cover.

Here is a gate too - wide enough to fit a leman russ with sponsons.

C&C are welcome!

Looks like a good build this far :)
Which direction does the tank come from?
Tallest first or shortest first?
Please nerf damage of GW-prized minis.
Best regards the Wallet

respect92 - the tank was just for scale. If it's like in the picture, then it will be from the defending side :) There are some details to add to the gate, but that is still to come.

Here is some old progress, just didn't find the time to put them - some texture between the "concrete" lines.

And some tracks and tires marks in the "mud". I slapped an undercoat on the whole piece, but can't get the right earthy/mud colour yet... and ideas? I'm working with basic acrylic set of 12 paints and some basic oil washes... First it was too dark, now it's kind of orangish light brown. Will work on it some more this weekend, and hopefully it will be done in a couple of days.

Very cool. I think the logs are a nice touch and the mud looks great.

Alternatively, you've made an awesome paint brush rack ;)

Never crossed my mind, but it's not such a bad idea for the time when it's not in gaming use ;)
