The first couple pics has the gas bag/rock look like an eyeball! I'm sure it won't once it's done. My favorite part is the drive mechanism with the pistons, it's well conceived.

Thanks, Everyone at my local gaming group loves the pistons.... personally I never want to do them again, they're a real pain to make and I glued myself to the model too many times to count getting those done.... Which means that I hate them, thus I need to do more of them, just like Rivets.... 

 

 

So update, I needed a hero so I made a Goblin Engineer or something not sure what he'll do. He might be a Lord Ordnator or an Endrinmaster:

So another update, the Hero Goblin is done, I am thinking about building a couple more of him, though I need to figure out more torsos that will work as I don't want them to be too uniform as these guys are ramshackle.

I just spotted this. I like how he's basically walking on stilts.

Thanks Man, It was the best way I could think of Making him Storm Cast Size and I think he looks good.

 

 

So I changed gears and Well after playing the Kharadon for some time and getting beat pretty solidly I decided to change to an Iron Weld Arsenal List and run Steam Tanks and Cannons, basically if I am going to lose I will play with Tanks the things I really like. 

 

So the Restart:

The Goblin bases are old Night Goblins and the arms are from a bunch of different bits, the guns are Empire Hand Gunners, so the marks man:

The Basic Trooper:

And the Piper, this guy is super important to the unit as it allows them to stand and shoot when they charged:

And the beginnings of a steam tank, I'm roughing out the size as I am waiting on an Ebay steam tank, this one's boiler is a killa kan body:

Looking great. Brilliant solution on the cobblestones - I'm thinking you could cut them thinner so your gobbos wouldn't tower over orcs but, whatever! The marksman is my favourite.
Not much to comment on about the steam tank except that your plasticard work is spot on as always.

Thanks!, I am actually trying to keep the Gobbo's as tall as Empire Marksmen so they close to what they count as.

So I switched gears on the Steam Tank, ebay hooked me up with an old steam tank.... then I started looting it:

I ended tonight with this, I was aiming for more of a Dragster Look and make it more Killa, so I upside'd the boiler and made it metal, also built a new turret, made new rear wheels and mounted them:

That looks a lot more convincing now that the kan body isn't showing. Thr only thing that looks out of place is the trim at the bottom of the tank, but you probably have a plan for that.
