Khador Battle Engine Gun Carriage Walker…

Well that title was a mouthful. Try saying it 5 times fast.

The best part about this costume is that it’s bathroom friendly!

I finally got some time to meet up with a friend and get some airbrushing lessons. So this was the perfect time to undertake the next stage of “Project: Sir-Walks-A-Lot”. He base coated most of it while explaining things to watch out for and how to properly use a airbrush. All in all it was a great learning experience and I plan to airbrush my Colossal Conquest myself. I initially messed up parts of the model when I was trying to use a saw not quite up to the job while converting it and decided to use that as a excuse to work on doing some basic battle damage on it. I think it came out decent and might do the same on the Conquest.

I decided not to post the finished model until after Lock & Load and the reactions there were pretty awesome. Here’s a link to the TUTORIAL as well!

This picture was actually taken using the light box at Lock & Load. Thanks to the PP crew!

  1. Black P3 Primer
  2. Airbrushed the base coat color using thinned out Vallejo Game Colors at a 45 degree angle and from the top similar to Zenithal priming
  3. Finished the rest of the model by hand
  4. Made simple battle damage effect using blacks and silvers
  5. Did some freehand work on the bulldozer and side of the model
  6. Drybrushed the feet area with some browns for that stomping in dirt feel
  7. Used Citadel Badab Black wash all over the miniature
  8. Minimal highlights (studs, bolts, rivets, gearwheels, etc.)
  9. Bases are comprised of Woodland Scenics grass flock, deadfall trees, & rocks. I also use a Autumn Mix Leaf Scatter (Apparently Skullcrafts has vanished but other companies make leaves now.)
  10. Finally I varnish with Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Gloss Coat (Non-Yellowing & UV Resistant) & then use Army Painter Anti-Shine Matte Varnish

  1. That looks cool. I like the use of the Dust Warfare walker bottom, works way better with the Gun Carriage on top.

  2. It looks awesome except for the dozer blade. I don’t know what it would be dozing that legs weren’t supposed to get around.
