Inspired by the Caprice walkers from Dream Pod 9 I've been doing some kitbashing for my 6 mm VOTOMs project.
Legs and gun assembly are from GZG's V15-46B
Recon/Patrol Walker Drone with autocannon – turret type B, body is plasticcard, the jumpjets and cockpit are 15mm backpacks from javelin98 's Shapeways store National Cheese Emporium.



I hope to get some paint slapped on it over the weekend,then if I like what I see I've got enough parts to build a second one.

Top man!

I have just started a small 6mm conversion job/kitbash too!
Great minds!

The plasticard body looks neat!

Wow – cool!

Nice conversion and a good use of parts.

Shapeways is good for those bespoke bits.

I'm not a fan of walkers generally but I like this one! The paint job is great too!

Nice work! One query – whose is the 6mm figure( Which manufacturer) ?

stroezie24 Jun 2013 4:09 a.m. PST

The infantry figs are GZG DSM-136 New Israeli light armoured infantry and the Mech is GZG DSM-139 AT-71 Hound Dog Infantry Walker.

Great kitbash! I have to make some for Mini Mech now!

Finished some more 6mm Caprice walkers for my Heavy Gear on the cheap. ;-)

Group shot

Can't have Heavy Gear without some Stone Heads ;-)
This one's made out of a beerbottle cork and some greenstuff.

Ha Ha about the heads, too true!


They have turned out rather nice my old mucker.
Good paint-jobs, good job making and good bases too!


9 out of 10.

Rothgar27 Jun 2013 6:33 a.m. PST

Yes, excellent job!

Really nice work! I'm a big fan of those Caprice walkers, but not $40 USD worth. Yours really look the part, and the price (and scale) sure is right!

Well done!
