2nd HWT finished.
Finally got my 2nd heavy weapons team painted up. The plan was originally to paint the sentinel first, but painting mech for the first time is rather scary, especially after having almost 3 weeks dry period from painting. Well finally i got some time to spare for painting and i m gonna get the sentinel finished to during the week.
I went a bit overboard on the team tho, exited about making the base for it, i ended up tweaking it a bit to far. I put a lasgun on the rock, which where to show the right guy putting it down and hurrying to set up the auto cannon with his mate. However that ended up being a bit of an error, since the lasgun where to high up and ate up some of the space where the auto cannon bulk where to be. Which resulted in the auto cannon being to high and not fitting perfectly with the crew anymore.
Overall i am very happy with it. I don't think you notice that much and its my first "conversion". Which means my first model which i didn't put together like they come in the pack. I'm planning on making the 3rd one with 2 crew moving with the auto cannon.
This experience gave me a taste of how different and original you can make your army with these plastic minis, so this will for sure not be my last conversion! Next up comes the sentinel..
