I thought I would share some photo's of some of the Mech's I use for Grunts. most are finished but I have a few that are projects that I have not started yet. If anybody wants info on the colours they are painted in, just let me know. I might do a start to finish post on this blog on converting Exo Squad Mechs into Mech's for Gruntz (at least how I did it anyway).
|This Mech was converted from a cheap Exo Squad plastic Mech found on Ebay. I know the model from Battle Tech it was one of the old style Warhammers.|
|On this model I cut one of the main gun barrels off and replaced it with a Gatling gun|
|A Rifleman Mech again the donor model was from an Exo Squad plastic model.|
|and rear view|
|The Warhammer Mech alongside one of the Exo Squad plastic toys showing how the original looked before the basic paint job. some colonial marines are in the foreground to give an idea of scale.|
|This time the Rifleman with its donor|
Even though these are 28mm Mech's they are still usable for 15mm.
Some views follow, I don't know what each one is called I bought them as a job lot at a wargames show last year and they didn't come with there boxes.
|This is the biggest of the Mech's with some 15mm Colonial Marines in the foreground for scale|
|One of the smaller ones with figures for scale. i think they work really well for 15mm.|
|The Big one again.|
|Critical Mass Medium Mech's I mixed up the weapons on these so that they could have a variety of role on the battlefield.|
|I think the transfers finish the models off nicely.|
|I picked up three of these puppies about 10 years ago and they have been sitting in a box under the shed table ever since.|
|Other Mechs and some 15mm troops alongside to show scale|
I think these may be a step to far for 15mm, but you never know, a super, super heavy?
|Other figures for scale|
|The game in the back i think I will cover these bits with bits of Plastic card if I ever get round to painting them.|
|The Mech's together|
|Another shot this time with a Necron Destroyer in the foreground that i am using as a tank for my Rebel Minis Scourge Army.|
There are more Mech's but I think I will hold off Photographing them at the moment until I get my light box back (lent it to a mate so he could put some figures on Ebay).
I am not really happy with the lighting of the shots at the moment. so more to come latter.
