Last Russian Walker Conversion
The plastic Ammon from the Dream Pod 9 KickStarter is for me the most disappointing Caprice model. Primarily because it doesn't match the size of the resin and white-metal version they produce. As you can see from the picture the legs of the resin and white-metal model are larger.
If one can accept the resulting lower height, from using the legs from the standard walkers, then the model makes up very nicely. As is my wont, I ended up converting it to make it a bit different, but not sure I like the arrangement of the weapons on their makeshift turret.
I'm not convinced I can live with the conversion because I prefer the taller model, as it looks slightly more elegant to my eye. As a result I went and ordered another Ammon, and a few other bits & pieces from Dream Pod 9 (though annoyingly I forgot to order extra machine guns I needed, sigh).
However, I must finish off the painting and put the custom decals I've got on to finish it off.
