Make Do and Mend Part 3: Praetor Completed and Painted

Posted on September 9th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

The Praetor armoured assault missile launcher KO is now painted and ready to do some damage. I added some rhino doors (fitted on backwards) to fill in the sponson gaps on the side of the land raider tracks, and added a radiator – as my IG colour scheme and theme is inspired by the Valkyria Chronicles video game, where the exhaust would normally sit. I did not have the exhaust component so this worked out well. The radiator is made from the sponson slots from leman russ weapon sponsons. A spare track section was added where you would normally find the…continue reading

Oh look, it’s that Jack Shrapnel guy… he’s still alive! Yes I know you were all very concerned when you hadn’t heard from me in so long (the search party finally found me).  Real life Chaos kind of has a way of interfering with the more important things like gaming, writing about gaming, and you know, having a life outside of work.  I’d like to apologize for my absence.  Sorry Thor, I really have no excuse! With the release of the General’s Handbook II coming this weekend, there’s no better time than the present to get right into the second…continue reading

Last week my opponent and I opted to skip week #2 in the Fate of Konor campaign. However, this week my opponent mentioned playing this week’s mission, so that’s what we did! I do feel that these missions are pretty bland. They are virtually the same ev…
