Cyclops / Demo Charge & Operator!

Well thats the end of my background writing for the moment, I just need to go over what I've done again and just pick myself up on a few gramatical errors which I've noticed. That aside its back to modelling and painting again.

I have of course been plugging away at the Roughrider sculpts, but as one last touch for British Vanquish it was time to get one of my two Forgeworld Cyclops painted up. I'm using this to represent a Demo Charge as its a good excuse to use a characterful model. Further being one not to waste things I've based it up on one of my old Lascannon bases which pre-dates the current codex. The operator is an ordinary, but appropriate, Guardsmen, he'll get a few alterations to his paint job when I've got time to pick him out as an Engineer.

Just a quick picture for now, I'll post again about these two once I've finished working on them after Vanquish.

I use my cyclops periodically as what it is, never thought to use it as a democharge. Might be a good idea, but the cyclops itself is alreay such a high priority target, that sticking it with a squad would likely spell their doom.

I quite like that, I've never seen one outside of an imperial armour book.

I think that is an excellent idea for a democharge, its a great model and as an added plus is makes adding a democharge very easy to any existing squad.

Absolutely gorgeous, and a perfect use for the cyclops. I've really been enjoying the background posts you've been doing as well. Can't wait to see what's next!
