Heavy Maxim-SoTR version

I am planning to build a new set of figures to SoTR
and it will be the russians. I will need regular foot-
soldiers and I have built 16 so far(26 to go).
I also need some vehicles and some mechas.
One of my first project in this is scratch-build a
heavy machine-gun. I have choosen to use the 
features of a regular Maxim and oversize it and also
add som bolts to make it look more brutal.
I made som bricks out of the rest from the blisters.
On the pictures all of the details are not glued but
it is a first glimse of what will be the finished result.
I will also put some paint on the machinegun and the
figures!


Jag planerar att bygga en ny uppsättning figurer till SoTR och valet har blivit ryssar. Jag kommer att behöva soldater och har i skrivande stund byggt 16(26 återstår). Jag kommer även att bygga fordon och mechas. Ett av mina första steg i detta projekt är att bygga en egen tolkning av en Maxim kulspruta. Min version bär de yttre detaljerna av originalet men är större och har även lagt till kraftiga bultar på visirplåten för att få ett mer brutalt uttryck. Alla delar är inte limmade på bilderna som visas men tanken är att ge ett första smakprov innan modellen är helt färdigbyggd och målad.

  3. Pretty awesome scratch built. But you at least need a crew of 8 to handle that beast and it's ammunition ;-)

    1. Thankyou very much Jodi. To build is almost as fun as to paint. :) I like the freedom in SoTR to build and to be able to use my own models on the gaming board.

  11. A nice piece of modelling, sir. It is indeed a terrifying looking weapon. It would be ideal for an Alternative History/Weird War 2 game. I could even imagine Space Orks using it!
    Well done.
