Hello again all,
I finally built the Black Earth 6mm UEF Hulk Suits and whilst I was at it decided to convert 4 of them.

I must say these minis assemble very nicely & can be converted easily enough.
Both their shape & detail is very good with almost non existing flash or mould lines.
As I said before they would make great 15mm Power Armour or small mecha.

There are 2 fiddly parts , the rocket launcher & the ammo belt.

The rocket launcher has a small spigot which should be inserted in the shoulder notch.
For the love of me I could not fit the ammo belts in place, so after a lot of trials I decided to fit 2 mm strips of flat cable .

For some reason they remind me of Hussars ,Imagine having a company of these charging enemy lines … charge of the metal brigade ??!!

I must get more ….

Thanks for your comments.

Interesting models …

I like those. Very keen. And the flat cable was an inspired idea.

Very nice models. Looks like they will be of use in 15mm, too.

Thanks all,
Dentatus flat IDE Hd cable is very versatile, see my other post castrarunis.blogspot.com.mt/2014/02/trackstracks-more-tracks-need-tracks.html

Hello again all started to paint the Blackearth 6mm suits for 15mm.
Still a wip.
Grey primer, dark brown wash, dry brushing with 3 different shades of grey. Then shading with watered down light grey. Detail & edging in white.

Nice minis to paint with loads of detail.

Can imagine what the 15mm version will be like when it ships from their KS plus there's a heavier version also. I saw the 3D prints and they look impressive.

I'm thinking about using them for my SDZ faction ( Sons & Daughters of Zion )
I have some 15mm IDF decals that will fit the bill perfectly.

More will follow.

Thanks for your comments

I've changed my mind they are great for AEWW2 eg. to play Konflict 47.Here they are next to Clockwork Goblin US light walker & German power armour & Psc 15mm Germans.They look great …

I posted pics on the same link above

Does anyone know where I can find a couple of Clockwork Goblin Bazooka & Panzer Schreck Power armour teams, please ?

Thanks for your comments

Another thing,
Some of their ork like brutes have Ww2 british helmets & lee enfields so they would be great as AEWw2 british hybrid ogres ( i'll call them Big Bullies).

Am thinking about Konflikt 47 in 15mm.
