Ever since the Thunderfire Cannon model came out, I knew I would never purchase it. Small complex metal models that will break easily are not for me. I knew it could be done, but it wasn't until Andy from Eagles View posted about his scratch built thunderfire cannon that I went and bought some volley gun bits from a bits site to have a go. You can tell by the date on his post that this item has been sitting in the backburner for a LOOOONG time. I built the volley gun bits and the tracks pretty quickly but the actual body was giving me problems. A recent land raider acquisition came with lots of spare bits and I had some leftover sentinel parts so when I got some inspiration I built this.
Sorry for the crappy iphone photos, I didn't bother to show the other side as it's basically identical. The only thing I see left to do is cover up the bare "axle" holes on the 2 rear most small wheels. Questions for you lot are -
Do you think it needs anything else model wise?
I was considering some ammo racks in the open space, might it be prudent to leave the space open for the techmarine to stand in so he can get a cover save?
Finally.. does anyone know if the techmarine that comes with a thunderfire cannon means you can take a squad of servitors, and if they can still be joined by him if he is operating the gun?
