    WG Mortar Assembly Advice Needed!


    I've got a couple of Winterguard Mortars and I'm having a bit of trouble putting them together.

    Basically, the mortar itself attaches to the gunner's left arm (his hand is mounted on top of the barrel) and sits on a carriage which in turn sits on the base. The problem I have is that once stuck together, the mortar carriage floats a good two to three millimeters above the base. Unsuprisingly, this looks completely wrong (and I'm convinced that it isn't supposed to fit this way), but I can't see another way of fitting it together. Fitting the mortar and carriage together and to the base leaves a 5mm gap between the gunner and his hand (and no-one has wrists that long surely?) and bending his left arm downward brings the mortar close to his greatcoat so his arm can't fit onto his hand.

    Has anyone else put together a Winterguard Mortar and had this problem? If so how did you solve it? At the moment I'm considering grinding down the block under the gunner's left foot in order to tilt him forward slightly, but I'm unsure if I'm supposed to do this. Does anyone have an alternative suggestion?

    If green power armour is good enough for the Fallen One, then its good enough for the rest of us...

    Sorry I'm a bit late on this, but yes, it is a sculpting error on the Mortar. I solved it by taking a small GW, clipped it to a good size glued it to the base with the mortar in top. Greenstuff the sides to make it look like a slope.

    Here's a (bad) pic but you get the idea.
