Duelling Paintbrushes 2: Modeling For Hippos Ishoo Sven: Warlock Engineers

The Island of Blood box comes with all sorts of goodness, but when you have three copies of it, you sometimes find you don't want so much of one particular flavour of goodness. Like Plague Wind Mortars. But you do want more of another flavour of goodness. Like Warlock Engineers. And Doom Rockets. Well, it's actually pretty easy to solve this problem with the application of a little cunning (the Skaven modeller's weapon of choice!). 
For this project, you will need:
  • An Island of Blood Plague Wind Mortar
  • An Island of Blood Warpfire Thrower fuel tank
  • A Storm Vermin knife
  • A spare Island of Blood warlord banner-top fire pot
  • A 1/72 scale plastic model missile (mine comes from a Zhengdefu[ARG!!!] MiG-25 which I picked up at the op shop after some one [very sensibly] gave up on it)

Take it away, Skveek!

Note: Forgot to take the photo until after the undercoat was on! Curses! Anyway, this is my Warlock Engineer with Brass Orb. Which is much bigger than you imagined.

And there you have it! Two spiffing warlock engineers with the mightiest and most interesting (and therefore not available from GW) weapons of Clan Skryer!

If you're looking for a nice alternative to a Zhengdefu(ARG!) MiG 25 missile and a flame pot for the doom rocket, check out the Armorcast Cinematic Effects range - they've got some very nice missiles trailing flame which would work perfectly.
