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.
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!
