Cheers Garslag, the steambuggy (don't know if you had a look at Doks' linky in post #269 but it shows the donor vehicle - it's well worth a look) accepted paint quite well - not having to figure out where I wanted stuff or paint the driver probably helped
Yeah, I think the Meks' head probs did come off the kommando nob looking at the pix - it is metal.
Good luck with the itty bitty squig sculpt.
EDIT: Just went back and looked again at the buggies alongside the Megajet Skrapthingy. It really is kinda insane how much dakka the new buggies are carrying, isn't it.
I went rummaging today trying to clear some space and found (apart from another three part built kanz) a pack of fish'ed frisbees or, more importantly, their bases
(Really not much for squigs leaping into the air off perambulating mushrooms - at least a transparent rod up their bum should be a little bit less conspicuous ).
The buggies do seem to be a bit Swiss Army Knife, anti-infantry and anti-vehicle weaponry but presumeably all expected to shoot at a single target or mob so half the dakka is less than optimal every time it shoots
