Warhammer Ballista Solaris 7 Champ by LKY13 Warhammer Ballista Solaris 7 Champ by LKY13
A fun miniature conversion I did a while back using CAV Thunderbird arms on a Halberd torso. I never thought they'd work since the Thunderbird arms are so big, but after finding some suitable legs and feet - I thought it might actually work, and began hacking away. Cutting the larger RP cast Summoner/Hellbringer legs was a bear and a half, but otherwise this was a fun project.

Inspiration for the paint scheme came from Rammstein's Reise-Reise CD cover. I've been wanting to try a scheme based on that cover for a while, but this just seemed like a good mech to use it on.

Firepower comes from a pair of Snub-Nose Long Toms, (4) SRM 4's, (4) ER Smalls, (1) ER Med.

That is just incredibly well done.  Do you paint miniatures by commission?

Thank you. I have on a few occasions in the past, but it's never been a major focus. Just something I do when I actually get time to have some fun.

Thanks. I like bright schemes as much as camo. Sometimes more so.

Yeah, definitely has a mecha vibe (from the East) vs. mech with Western flare. Thanks for the kind words.

The launchers are actually part of the CAV Thunderbird arms.
