Another build project: Buggy conversion

I got this model off ebay a very long time ago, and finally decided to break down and build a buggy with it. Yes, I still think buggies are the worst unit in the codex.  No, I probably won't play it. However I love making buggies as the possibilities are endless.

The base model is a Badger from Ramshackle Games.  It retails for £13 so it's a decently priced model.  The resin is very hard and brittle, which made it very hard to work with.  Even broke a drill bit trying to pin it together..

I have the options of either rokkits or big shootas, and I'm really happy with how it came out.

I used green stuff to try and simulate welds on the different panels, with mixed results. Mostly due to not being able to reach inside to get it just how I wanted it.  I also really need a set of silicone sculpting tools..

Lastly I have listed all my Gorkamorka trukks on ebay with the goal of replacing them with the new model. I like them, but I simply can't use them in any real fashion. It's been 6 years, I guess it's time to upgrade the fleet.

Anyway, pics!
