eldar vaul's wrath support battery

My sole Vaul's Wrath support weapon platform was assembled with some minimal conversion work. It was a challenging piece to paint, requiring four sub-assemblies so that I could get to all of the hard-to-reach areas.

date: 2013 - 2021 (complete)
components: 1x Vaul's Wrath Support Battery, 2x classic metal Eldar Support Weapon Crew backpack antenna, 2x Eldar War Walker pilot heads, 60mm round scenic base, transparent acrylic rod, Green Stuff

1. One of the main changes that I made was to file down the edge of the weapon platform's large shield into a graceful curve. This mimics the design of the smaller Guardian Defender Heavy Weapon Platform. I've also added a metal antenna to the back of the gunner's seat.

4. Underside view of the platform's base. Although this will largely be hidden from view, that doesn't stop me from lavishing an inordinate amount of time on it!

5. The undercoated platform, partway through painting.

6. The painted scenic base. Rather than using the supplied 40mm base, I opted to use the sculpted 60mm base from the Wraithlord set.

10. The (discontinued) Forge World Eldar transfer sheet includes runes for the Support Weapon platform, so I included one on the rear of the platform base.
