Trench Shrine - Alltag40k Prize

At the tail end of 2020 there was a contest on Instagram called "Alltag40k" which prompted the participant to create a kitbash or conversion that fit the theme of 'Everyday in the 41st Millennium", with themes of "Work, Play, or Pray". My entry was the "Grimdark AV Cart" posted here:

I ended up winning first place and it turns out there were prizes, in the form of scratchbuilds by the organizers... and I ended up with a sweet one, by @wickermanminiatures. Here's what I received:

I love all the little details- clever touches like different openings into the shells, the use of the smallest nativity scene I have ever beheld, votive offerings, candles, skulls in the mud... just great. It took a few months before I had time to get paint on it. I have to admit its a little weird painting someone else's build!

A WIP showing beginning layers- I still hadn't decided on colors for uniforms on the trenchers.

Final product:



All in all I'm quite happy with how this turned out, and hats off to the builder who very generously gave this beauty up as a prize!


  1. WOW, thats on great looking bullet shrine.

  2. Congrats on the win! I remember the av cart. It was well deserving! The bullet shrine is a great prize, and your paint job certainly did it justice! Great stuff!
