My new wheeled Chimera is finished!

Huzzah!

I had a fair bit of time to paint last night, and was able to finish my Arbitrator's wheeled Chimera. Sitting on the table, it wobbles a bit meaning I didn't put something together right somewhere, but no matter as I'm rather pleased with it overall.

I stuck with Gretchin Green w/o any camouflage for the body. Like the Knarloc Green on my Imperial Forestry Service Rhino, Gretchin Green also looks like a typically bland shade of 'government issue green'. The guns are Stegadon scale green, or something like that. I rather like that color, and will use it on the arbitrators themselves I think. Honestly I was a little concerned, as it looked a bit too blah, even with the decals…but once I properly dirtied it up (as all tanks should be), it came out looking pretty good I think!

"Justus Extremis" was the all-but-required name for the vehicle.

The 3 vents on the fender were the closest approximation to an exhaust vent on the kit, and thus blackened up accordingly.

I added a bit of whatever boltgun metal is called now along the edges where paint would likely get scraped off via regular wear and tear. Aside from that though, this vehicle is decidedly lacking in battle damage when compared to my other Imperial vehicles.

I'm gonna be in Memphis this weekend at the battle bunker running the heresy event - If you want to swing by in the evening on friday or saturday, I'll buy you a beer! (That's assuming memphis isn't crazy far away from ya).

Cheers!

lol,Memphis is as far from Bristol as you can get without leaving Tennessee, about 10ish hours drive. In effect, TN is a parallelogram, and this weekend we'll be in the opposite corners of it.

I really do appreciate the offer though! So go and crush those traitors with your Iron Hands for me!!!

:-D
