062 Basilisk/Griffon Combo 'Ubique'


Way back when, I asked what I ought to be doing next. The snipers were voted in as was my basilisk and my griffon. As I like to work on a few things at once (very low boredom threshold) I finished my snipers a while ago and have now finished repainting my basilisk.
I say re-painting because it was previously fully painted and finished in olive/black camoflage, in keeping with my as-yet-unposted tank company. Now, however, Ubique is Dark Angels Green, now a vehicle of the Cadian 144th Regiment of Artillery, and on attachment to the 1/24th Cadian Mechanised Bn. In other words, although it doesn't have the blue-white-blue insignia of the rest of my chimera-chassis vehicles, it has a complementary scheme.
I HAVE NOT YET FINISHED PAINTING MY GRIFFON. However, whilst painting-up the basilisk, I came across an old griffon mortar bed in pieces. Now it's an extra - interchangable with the earthshaker cannon so I can field Ubique either as S-P artillery proper or as S-P heavy mortar. Add to this my other Griffon, Victor, and that's two rather cheap and rather nasty indirect fire units!
Here it is then:
Hopefully, there'll be more on Victor and (of course) the MSTTD/Wyvern soon...

Oh, and check out our new buddy, Haggoroth: he's got some great ideas!

  1. I like the guy manning the guh from the turret. Poor lad must be stone deaf by now.

  2. Ah, that ubiquitous Dark Angels Green! I just did up a Leman Russ with it, although my vehicles have far less detail and insignia than yours. Keep it up!

  3. Thanks, guys.

    I really ought to post some pics of my Leman Russes at some point. I don't really like their look very much these days, but I can't afford to replace them, and I haven't nearly enough time to repaint them!

    Maybe soon...

  4. I pity the poor sods under those pie plates!

  5. I was also reading elsewhere you couldn't think of something similar in the UK to easy green for paintstripping....

    Cillit Bang! even if those adverts are really annoying


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
