Steam Colossi for Land Ironclads

I have been trudging along with my Land Ironclads conversions, cobbling a force together from bits and pieces that I had laying about in one box or another. This is not a front-line project for me just yet, but I find several (perhaps too many) old 6mm Battletech power armor minis that just begged consideration.

Most of them were not overly well-suited to conversion to VSF, but the Grey Death Legion power armor looks like it will do nicely. These figures have a very static pose, domed helmets and a jump pack on their back, which at that scale looks much like a pair of boilers. The minis come in three versions, each armed with a different weapon - Gatling gun, large-barreled gun (laser I think), and some short-barreled thing that looks like flamer (B-tech loved its flamers).

I think with the addition of a funnel between the dome of their rocket packs and a nice coat of gun metal paint they should make for quite nice walking terrors.

Note: There was supposed to be a pic with this post, but my memory card for my camera is AWOL. I'll get some pics up ASAP. Thanks for your patience.

  1. Just checking in your archives. Very nice work on the steam colossi. Makes me wonder if I have anything that I could use, when I eventually get around to gaming that scale!
