Church Tank: WIP #3

I couldn't decide how to mount the cannon onto the tank. Problem solved this weekend when I realise it's the right width to fit inside a Rhino hatch. Glued in place, then the back of the hatch has been sanded down, so when the cannon's mounted, there'll be a little tilt upward. Pleased to have solved this puzzle.

Threw a few more pieces of ridiculousness on the tank and it still looks perfect 40k. Smoke launchers where the old turrets were, lights from the Imperial Sector box, and a few ornamental statues.

Inside there's more lights, some cogs, ladders, lions, tigers and oh my!

Straws? Of course there are straws. I love straws. They're roughly glued into place, and all the glue will be painted to look like an abundance of ugly weld marks and verdigris.

A point to note about the scenery build. On the top of each post is a small but important detail that should be the correct way up.

Can't see it?

So when assembling the church, I realised this just in time and had to flip several over of these inserts to be the correct way up before the glue set. Detail, detail, detail.

Now we're at the point where the tank will need priming. Just need to get the airbrush working and a free evening to make this happen ...
