I bought a kids plastic toy the other day with a view to converting it to a self-propelled gun for Jurassic Reich. It’s a triceratops from a German company called Schleich. They make some nice models and the sculpting on this one is pretty decent, even if the paint job isn’t.
I undercoated it with The Army Painter’s brown spray paint (great product too by the way), and then set about adding some natural-looking colour to it. It just took a couple of hours work to come up with something that I am pretty proud of.
And in other news, I’ve started working on the design for a launch track for the V1 Raketedactyl (a pterodactyl with a V1 rocket engine strapped to its back). Depending on how complex it turns out, it’s likely to go into the Jurassic Reich source book.
