Gargant: nearing playable completion

I have finally gotten the Gargant mounted on its tracks. In doing so I also found a use for some of the plastic part rejects I picked up from the plastic shop i work at. I took a whole bunch of pictures, but as it turns out none of them look good so, unfortunately I will make a video of the Gargant. If anyone wants to see the pictures I took please let me know.

Paint on a Big Trakk

So in between working on my gargant and doing other non hobby things I have been painting my favorite Big Trakk. I must say, so far I am quite happy with the results.

The grey paint here is supposed to be grease as this is the turret mount.
as for the orangish spots on the green those are knicks painted with boltgun metal and washed with vallejo fleshtone for rust (it looks better in sunlight.)

Here you can see the one part I really messed up on, I should have puttied the gap in the cockpit and hull up but  i didn't. I must have been too anxious to paint it or get it on the table or something.

Here is the side of the tank. I apologize for the terrible glare. Also that orange stripe there is  normally darker.
*shakes fist at ceiling lamps* 

Ah the exhaust. I think I'm going to wash that with either badab black,  or ink it with a black ink.

And the engine. I still have to remove the ad-mech symbol and replace it with a n ork mek symbol but other than that I'm very happy. with how it's turning out.

And there you have it, some painting progress. If anyone wants a complete run-down of the colors used let me know and i will see what I can do.

Gargant Work!

First I want to apologize for not giving much information with my pictures. I'm going to try and remedy that from now on.

Now that that's off my chest, the Gargant is really coming along nicely.
 I changed the gun head to a more literal interpretation. Yes that is a metal washer with large plastic rivets.
As you can see I added what I like to call barrel 'flair'. Eventually I will add rivets to each of the 'flair' spikes

A shot of a random mechanical arm, made from the Stompa close combat arm. I'm  not really sure how I'm going to finish it if anyone has any suggestions let me know.

This is the second Primary weapon of the Gargant. Hopefully you can tell that it's an energy weapon, if not, you now know. 

I thought the gun was lacking some detail so I added an exhaust line from the trukk kit and part of an eldar sensor.
The vanes sticking out are from the Manticore/Deathstrike kit and the are mounted on part of a copula from the trukk kit.

Here you can see that I added a radar dish and the coil from the battlewagon zzap gun.
also the basis for this gun is 2 Stompa Chainsword motor things glued together.

Here you can see the start of an AA gun for the Gargant. It has not been mounted as of yet because I want it to be able to move. I have a very good idea how I want to do that.

I changed the superstructure that the head is mounted on.  It now looks reasonably large enough to hold a crew. 

I don't think I ever really took a picture of the back so here it is.
