Hi All,

Maschinen Krieger vehicle and this is a Medium Recon Vehicle used by the Mercenary Forces which they call the Bunyip.

Bunyip/Figures - I used the turrets and parts from two Hasegawa Maschinen Krieger 1/35 Nutcracker vehicle kits and also parts from a Tamiya Merkava and Sherman tank and also plastic card and rod and the crew are from MasterBox and is kit number 3598. The Bunyip and figures were painted and weathered using Vallejo Paints and Pastel chalks.

Base - is high density foam cut to shape. The ground work is a mix of spakfilla/sand and applied and while still wet kitty litter was scattered over the base. Once dry I painted the kitty litter with Vallejo Paints and then gave the base a few washes of Vallejo Iraqui and then a gave the rock a wash of Games Workshop AGRAX Earthshade to darken them. The dead branches are dried roots I picked from the garden and the grass tufts are from MiniNatur which I lightly dry brushed with Vallejo Beige Brown to give them a partial dry look to them.

Love it Ron! Looks more Huntsman than Bunyip but I love the name as well!

Excellent work, thanks for sharing.
