I managed to find time to paint up another member of my Maniac Helsreach Mercenary gang this week - this time in the form of some heavy firepower.
RT era human models with heavy weapons are almost exclusively of the 'shoulder-mounted' school of design, but there is a nice Vasquez-style female Imperial Guard who totes a rather nice underslung heavy weapon:
Of course, "Auto Cannon" didn't have quite the right look for my Maniacs, so I rectified that by giving her a head swap from Venus Bluegenes from the Citadel Rogue Trooper range. A little bit of resculpting to the neck and back-pack, and she's good to go.
I'm not entirely sure whether the big gun was originally intended as an autocannon or not. It's got a fuel canister and burner like flamer. Happily this lack of clarity means I can probably use it as a variety of options on in games.
Like the rest of the gang to date, my new addition got a relatively drab colour scheme, enlivened by the addition of some pretty beaten up armour. She also goes to the same hairdresser for bleaching treatment.
Four models down - that's looking like the start of a gang don't you think?
