I couldn't wait for FW to bring out their heavy flak guns, so I ordered some of their earthshake platforms to convert.  Now that I have finally finished them the heavy fak guns are on pre order!

But never mind.  Here are my three


and another view


I still have some work to do to their bases, and I might ad some crew to them.  But overall I am happy with them, a quick easy conversion that looks very similiar to the "proper" version.

Though whilst everyone argues over if the HFCs are 88 or 105 mm I can sit here smuggly knowning that mine are 132mm, pure imperial overkill   :p  :laugh:

Heh - whatever the calibre, they look the part - and are the right size to bring down a Manta too.

Good idea - looks like a cargo Sentinel thingy like the FW 28mm scale one - VERY nice to see one in 6mm. So - how was it built?  :cool:  :cool:  :cool:

It is indeed a cargo sentinel, converted from an old assault cannon sentinel.

The two arms (I know there should only be one) were made from 0.5mm strips of plasticard  and 0.5mm dia plastic rods (and cost me most of my sanity).

Here is another picture of it

VERY nice - and fiddly! I like the two arm version you made.
Thanks for the pic Mr. Rok.
I might have a go making one for my new Chaos army.
