Quick 'n' Easy BTSnotling 09-27-2007

Hey Guys Takes Hat off

as i expolred my new miners box, i noticed, that the drill would make a nice little harpoon, when you build it like that


it doesn't look perfect, but it is a base for a nice BT. you can build it very quick and it's cheap... if you have miners ^^. now you can add some CD-symbols, chaos-stuff, other bolts etc... i enlarged the arrow.

i work with it by the while during i make my other projects, but some day, i will have 2 new BTs ^^

RE: Quick 'n' Easy BTGrimstonefire 09-27-2007

I've used this same idea to make a 'gatling blunderbuss' for my unit.  I took off that leg on the front, chopped down the legs a little and took the spy glass off the top.

Pics will follow once I've built the other 3 CD on the base (40mm).

RE: Quick 'n' Easy BTCotter 09-28-2007

Great Idea that! I am really impressed. That is some nice use of spare parts. Especially as the "portable steam-engine-hammer" is a bit over the top from a mechanical point of view. Talking about miniaturisation.

But it makes a really cool bolt-thrower.

RE: Quick 'n' Easy BTduktu 09-28-2007

Great job there Snotling! I dare even say - as usual Wink I was thinking of such conversion for quite some time. Although the idea of elongating the arrow is brilliant!
I would probably cut off the odd leg in the front (just below the arrow) to make it look less like a drill Wink

I wonder, why you have only one slave? You've one of the greatest army in the showcase and yet, only one slave. Do you kill them for inspiration? Have one slave from me, for this great piece of work. And with an additional slave, I guess we could see the painted model sooner, eh?

Yes Snotling once again a great job. But I liked you scratch build-version back in august even more. What is the idea for hobbos this time?

Btw - haven't seen much from you hand lately - working on something big - are you?

It reminds me of the Harpoon Guns Chaos Dwarfs had back in 3rd Edition. I did something similar using bits of a Defiler and an Imperal Guard Rocket Launcher.

RE: Quick 'n' Easy BTAGPO 09-29-2007

I had a similar idea, but I was gonna use it for a death rocket as I already have 4 scratch built bolt throwers. Kudos for the realisation snot

Is the miner set worth it on the whole?

RE: Quick 'n' Easy BTFather Grumpmas 09-30-2007

I suggested something similar over on the Cut-throats den - making a harpoon gun using the sight on legs from the dwarf cannon box.

With the miners harpoon gun, I have been thinking of cutting off the harpoon and attaching the rotating barrels from an Empire repeating rifle to make a gatling gun - a bit of a blunderbuss unit filler.

The same could be done to the steam drill to make a man (dwarf?) portable gatling gun.
