A Kodiak Moment

I couldn't really do a 5th Border Legion army without a Kodiak. I picked this fellow up on eBay as part of a package. It included quite a few other 'jacks so I almost have almost the full compliment now. For the battlefield bases I rally wanted to add some sandbags so I built a small barricade to test it out. I think it works fine, better than the Man O War's crater. The gap between the hull and the upper piece is really annoying. I had heard about it before but I though that it only really effected the Juggernaut. I filled it up and now once it is dry I can lay down an undercoat. I really don't know what else I will do for bases just yet. I haven't spotted many online that I can blatantly copy. The biggest problem will be with the Winter Guard as they have small bases and they are a nightmare to do something special with. Hopefully some inspiration arrives...

  1. I used for my WG the Micro Arts Trench bases, and it's worked very well! And for the other heavy, you can try out some barbwire for example.
    Great work btw!

    1. Yep barbed wire is coming soon, probably for the infantry models.

  2. I know Dragonforge has some wastelands and trench battlefield bases and such that are cool looking and may give you some more ideas. If I ever get to my new 40k Spacemarine project those are the bases that I will be using for it.

    1. I like the Dragonforge bases but they are too flat. A battlefield should have a lot more broken ground to it in my mind. I checked up a number of companies and they all seemed to just do some wooden planks and detritus. It just doesn't convey what I want. Now the difficulty is trying to do better myself... not an easy task!

  3. The sandbags look good... still I couldn't help but think "Steampunk pillow fight!"
