I'm still working on my vehicle-based gang for the upcoming Logan's World campaign I'll be participating in. Most importantly, I hadn't got round to painting up any vehicles. In order to rectify this, I decided to paint up my mobile fire support vehicle - a small, light wheeled buggy, armed with a heavy stubber.
The vehicle is a resin and metal (now out of production) Future Warriors buggy. I did some adaptation to it - adding the gun (a plastic Genestealer hybrid autocannon), roll cage from brass tube, rear platform from plasticard, and the mesh (car body mesh):
Painting-wise, the buggy got as much weathering as I could apply to the white base coat - primer showing through (dark grey applied with blister packing foam), scratches, rust (various browns using blister foam again, with washes), dirt (washes into corners plus drybrushing on the lower sections).
All in all, I think it looks suitably beaten up and dirty!
|The platform is probably not the best place to stand, unless you're happy with superheated exhaust fumes to the face!|
|Once upon a time, somebody was proud enough of their ride to add a racing stripe.|
EDIT: The original Grenadier Future Warriors vehicle was the Lightening Strike Buggy - it came with a metal rollcage and front guard:

Although Mirliton now have the licence for the range, unfortunately they don't currently have the buggy in production.
