Khador Gun Carriage in 38 Hours

Tyler has purchased a Khador Gun Carriage battle engine today, and will be playing with it over the weekend at the Scrap Metal III tournament at Maelstrom Games in Mansfield over the weekend.   I picked it up from Maelstrom Games in my lunch hour off work on Thursday (today), eventually arriving home at seven o’clock that evening.

Maelstrom Games tournaments quite rightly in my mind insist on fully painted miniatures in tournaments, so this is where the 48 hours come in.  Tyler needs to have this monster of a model built and painted in 38 hours!

So we unpacked it and started cleaning it up. I have to say while the metal casting are not that bad, the plastic casting is a mess especially around the under carriage.  There is a gap of at least three millimetres where the top joins the bottom.

After an hour or two cleaning the mold lines, we decide there is nothing else but glue it together.  After a nightmare with what seems like “gone off glue“, we eventually have it ready for spraying with Army Painter Red primer .  Will have to get some more glue tomorrow if it doesn’t hold, especially around the wheels.  But time is getting on, so another coat of primer and it will be ready for paint.

I will be posting more pictures during the night and tomorrow on progress.  It does seems that Gary at Maelstrom was correct in saying “Page 5 also applies to painting”!
