    So a quick question, would perhaps, say, a converted Mortis Engine/Coven Throne equipped with artillery that was completed some months ago be accepted? :)

    p.s.
    I used imgur to upload these. And I'm really salty at the shape my plog is in because of photobucket. :/

    @Adam_Barrow Great photos and a really good entry there!

    @Nagash Worshiper I would accept it, especially if it has some artillery on deck ;) And if it was completed less than a year ago that is.

    Deadline might be a bit tight as I have other things to complete during the same period, but I started working on something for this challenge and might be able to submit an entry later :D

    Yeah I was worried about the deadline too because currently I'm on vacation in Austria for some downhill action. But I decided to break my ankle joint the first day, so that I'll have enough time to paint when I'm back home :slapface::thumbsup:

    Wait... is the zombie in the back, trying to shoot at point blank the rest of the crew? xD

    @Unas the slayer Each one of them is trying to do its job, not cooperate together, it's probably not even loaded with powder. There's a reason it's just some additional wounds to a zombie unit and not a functional piece of artillery ;)

    Makes sense.

    That said, a wonderful piece... as I was sure it would have been. :)

    Hey guys. Great entries thus far :thumbsup: Was actually hit by some inspiration and planning to get an entry in but am unsure what to do about the photobucket problem. Can anyone recommend a good solution or alternative for posting pics. Bit bummed my plog is now a mess with half the images missing(not sure why only some are missing as all are on photobucket?) o_o

    The imgur app I used worked well enough. I feel you in the plog front. Thinking of taking new pics and updating the first and last posts. Less than ideal, though. All those WIPs are a loss.

    -Edit-
    Mioum with the ninja post. Looks awesome, dude!

    Thanks @Adam_Barrow I will have to figure something out.

    So I've spent quite a bit of today working on something and the design has changed quite a bit. Turns out sawing pieces off miniatures with an angle grinder is not a good technique :slapface: Lesson learnt :clown:

    Hope you guys have an open mind as to what constitutes a war machine and are ready for something a bit different. Things are about to get a little strange :)

    Will post before August 6 once painted. Might put a wip in my plog once conversion is finished.

    Nice catapult man, it's great to see more entries! I'm on mine too, started painting Friday but was interrupted by my birthday -sneaking among me every year that little creep- I hope I'll finish the scraplauncher this week. And now I hate myself for not putting corpses as ammunition, to call it Deadlauncher:slapface:

    was wondering if a casket of souls would qualify for this since it's not actually an artillery piece. i did one some time ago need to check when i actually did it but it think it's less than a year ago

    @Eyeless Actually, why not? It's an object that's crewed by undead, powered with undead, used to attack enemies. Check the date and if it's not too old, go with it ;)

    Great entries so far, this is shaping up to be an awesome competition again.

    @robtion Your WIP shot looks awesome.

    @Eyeless Time flies! I reckon you can get something done in time though :)

    Meanwhile, I thought of a really quick idea that is so bad I don't think I'll bother! ;)
