You got to love quad long barreled autocannon
Your paint job has done it justice too, I would have blended more but think that would possibly have resulted in a worse overall effect, cracking jobn, really like it!
(would rather the piccis didnt have the IG in them, find they clearly block the turrets capacity to traverse, just bugs me a bit)
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Ref: The infantry, I was thinking the same. I only put them in for the pic's, as the interior was looking a little dark.
This really looks terrific - good paint job and weathering. Looks gritty and guard-ish enough to make me want to blast it with a few plasma cannons.
Really good job, Ash. Your second set of images really help to show the fine detail. Good color scheme too- both on the hydra & the I.G. infantry. I really like the aged look of the metal.
The autocannons themselves could use a little more detail, perhaps a tad bit more crispness, though not much. Maybe some more rusting.
Are the nets & blankets included in the forgeworld kit, or is that something you added? They look supurb.

Marvellous work. I imagine it's quite hard to get that gritty, weathered look just right, and you've hit the nail on the head. I bet those infantry feel a bit inferior, stood there with their little guns next to that beast of a turret! Anyway they're painted nicely too. Good job all around

Glad you like it, it was fun to do and still needs a bit more. The Guns you noticed; think I’ll give them a similar feel to the metal stuff on top of the walls, sort of dirty/rusty feel.
The auto cannon themselves, where a real pig to try and get straight, they looked like a bunch of bananas. There was a bit missing from the ‘radar dish’ hence the conversion. All the sides of the re-enforced metal bars/strips down the walls, had broken off and had to be replaced with plastic card. The same with the steps, all redone with textured plastic card.
The nets, blankets and the round ended case under it, I added along with some more jerry cans and a couple of oil drums inside.
The IG are quite old, I painted them before the plastics came out and they are due to be rebased.
The Hydra itself was fairly straight forward and done exactly the same as my tanks just without the camo pattern:
The IG were only included as the first pictures I took, the interior looked dark and the bodies helped to break it up a little, plus I've got into the habit of putting troopers in my pic's of tanks etc.
The turret comes out so it could be used as a trench and the guns are on long pins so they move up and down; the turret hatch is hinged and the radar thing is also on a large pin so it turns or can by swapped for a defense platform or searchlight.
