Thank you, Secret Santa!


A special thank you to the Secret Santa that sent me these three lovely Vorax Class Battle Automata.

I had a lot of fun assembling these guys, I just love the models : )  The ammo feeds for the rotor cannons are a little tough to get to the right shape, particular if you go for dynamic posing like I've done. Sadly one of the feeds broke, so I've had to build a new one from plasticard strips.

The bases are scratch built using other bits of plasticard and the cool Tech Deck conversion parts from Dragon Forge Design. Click on the link above and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Cheers
Dave

  1. Excellent - really looking forward to seeing 'em painted up in you scheme! The Crusaders were always my favorite of the old robots, absolutely love FW's take on them. Can't wait to see what they do for the Colossus!

    1. I'm not 100% sure as I don't have any reavers on hand, but I think you're probably not too far off. Sounds like a good idea.

    3. Well, the bases they are on are 60mm round, so the same size as the old titan bases, and from the bottom of their feet to the top of the lightning gun on top it's 50mm (or 2"). So, they're not a lot taller than a Marine, but certainly much bulkier. Hope that helps : )

    4. Yup better than you know. Unfortunately there too tall for me then. They are taller than the beetle back warlords but not as bulky then.

  3. Nice! The Vorax are such cool models and I look forward to seeing them in your scheme. I'd love to pick some up just for fun painting (I can't figure out how I'd fit them in an Alpha Legion with allied Solar Auxilia list. Sadly you can't grab 'em with a Cortex Controller...)

    Also I wasn't aware of those Dragonforge Tech Deck conversion pieces & now my brain is spinning overtime with the possibilities.
