Don't fear change...

AoS Chaos Warriors of Slaanesh Part 1

I'm playing AoS now, and the supple wiles of Slaanesh have called to me. It's a nice quick diversion from building orks.

Scrap Canon Wagon Part 3

As I began the track modules I found that they would be the same size as the one for the OrKV-2 grot tanks I'm building, so rather than double up on the work I modified the gun wagon chassis so those tracks would fit.

This is what I started:
