I've decided to start painting some 40k again, so after a long hiatus, I jumped back in and started work on a trio of vehicles for my Death Korps force. Included in these vehicles is an original Imperial Guard Griffen self propelled mortar. The Griffen will get a post dedicated to it later, as it is one of my original guard vehicles dating back twenty years or so. What I want to discuss here is the Armageddon pattern Medusa. That kit, purchased just a few years ago from Forgeworld, was meant to be a display piece. Unfortunately, the kit is rubbish. None of the pieces fit together, and the only way I managed to get the brass etch and flooring in was to use a heat gun on the model after I had painted the interior. Then I had viciously chop off detail on the inside. The geometry simply doesn't work. This is a shame. I love the general look of the thing. Hopefully it will look like a reasonable AFV when completed. Don't worry about the ramp, It isn't completed yet. I just splashed some paint on it while getting the hard to reach internal areas painted prior to assembly.
What on earth is that Centaur doing that Griffen in the background?
