Ork Goliath Mine

In the spirit of working on projects I had left half-finished when I took my break from miniatures, I recently completed this goliath mine from Kromlech.  The first time I had heard of a goliath mine was when I saw one at a military museum many years ago.

I also started a building a unit of tankbustas.  The nob, with the mine controller, is again from Kromlech.  I might do a little more dry brushing on the nob, but I haven’t decided yet.  If I had him to do over again I would consider experimenting with liquid green stuff and see if I could hide the seam where his arms attach to his torso.

I might also try adding some dust to the treads on the mine, but then again I might not.

Tankbusta nob with goliath mine controller and a couple of his toadies.

So moving forward the plan is to build some more rank and file tankbusta boyz.  After more than four years of using nothing for elites in my army except nobz, I think it is time to add a little variety.

I’m not sure why they wear great coats and winter hats in the desert.  Perhaps they are in a cold desert or more likely being orks they are just crazy and/or the heat doesn’t affect them like one would reasonably expect, because everyone knows (when they think about it) that orks are much tougher than weedy gits like humans and eldar and such.
