Showcase Imperial Regiment the 19th Dicers Basilisk

Hi All,

As promised a first completed post for the dicers as I head into Six up Save's skirmish 3 event.  As i mentioned in the previous WIP post this model is a rescue from my youth.  Since the last post I decided to build some crew from my bits box and went to town on the weathering.  In the end given the age of the model I am really happy with the end result.

I even managed to bob round to innermechs and use his photo booth to snap some better shots:

Overall happy with the finish and it matches nicely some of the earlier tanks.  Not bad considering the time lapse between them being completed and the fact the earthy red is a mixed paint!

The beady eyed will notice the tracks are not perfect and I debated trying to take them all off and sourcing new ones but two things stopped that time and money.  After all this model has a history with me and the little bit of track reminds me of that!

Second crew member complete with hammer and pistol essential basilisk firing equipment surely..............

For those who may be interested in an alternative head this crew men's head came from victoria minatures all the way from aus!

Hope you like as always please give me some constructive feedback.

  1. Very nice indeed, especially as a rescue job!

    If I had to suggest something, it would be perhaps looking to dryblend the weathering on the end of the barrel a bit more, as there's quite a distinct line between the weathered end and the main part of the barrel, but that's being quite picky!

    1. That's actually a really good point and the weathering on the barrel was a last minute edition it needs fading in a little.

  2. Lovely work, man - I I really dig how that turned out!

  3. Lovely mate, didn’t notice anything wrong with the tracks.

  4. Love the colour scheme, looks really nice
