So, I finished (for the most part) my Kryst forces.

HQ Standard Bearer still needs a standard, but I ran out of time.


Two 6-man squads:





My custom built Sothwyr Tractors:


Generic Tankers (in case the tanks get hit... Yeah, right):


Edited... but I do not get the "Copy Image Location" option when I right-click. I am using Firefox - could that be the issue? I had to "View Page Source" in order to get the .jpg link.

Those look great.

I took the liberty of editing your post to get one to show up. Look at it by hitting the edit button. What you need to do is place the opening Img tag by using the button above the post area. Then copy the url of the image from Flicker. I right clicked on the image and selected Copy Image Location. Paste that in and hit the Img button again to close the tag and your laughing.

Great job, especially the skin tones - looking forward to seeing these guys across the table! With my luck, especially vs. Kryst, don't expect the poor Crusaders to put up much of a fight, though... Razz

Your custom Sothwyr tractors are pretty cool.

I especially like the wrapping on the rifle of the top right guy. For some reason, I have a hard time with that. Good job.

The Sothwyr are painted with Vallejo Game Color and washed with GW Devlan Mud, then a spray of Testors Dule Cote.

As for the parts, the body is a modified version of an armoured car from Black Army Prod

Then a mix of random GW bits and kit. I scratch built the large tires from plasticard and some metal wheel bits.

ZombieSmith now has a Sothwyr for sale... and it's top notch. I considered getting one or two to use with my Partisans.
