Hello again all,
Here are the Finished Prime Movers & Gitungi vehicles

https://castrarunis.blogspot.com/2020/11/finished-prime-movers-gitungi-vehicles.html

You can see the starting point here

and here

I like painting gritty well used vehicles. Parade ground uniforms & vehicles are not my thing
unless they are specifically going to be used as such.
The bottom piece can be changed














Thanks for your comments.

Those are great! I see I will have to hit some of the junk stores for some old train stuff. I have always liked the idea of something an a smaller scale of "Mortal Engines". Your work has inspired a lot of great ideas rolling in my head!
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

Thanks,
Yes Uvs, Both of them are based on Lima train bodies. One steam , one diesel. Lovely , detailed models.

Yes you should WM, the top bodies are the most difficult to build so it makes sense to find suitable train parts.
I still have loads from my childhood ( some still new ) and the tracks are perfect for this scale, so it's another plus. You can find sets for 28mm also.

The bottom parts are simple wood, card, pvc , bottle cap wheels , hard disk flat cable tracks , wire etc.
It is possible to build bigger ones, like a land train , also.
 
If you need help , ask.

Thank you my friends for the praise, glad you like them.
As you can see one can easily ( granted with a bit of work and practise ) convert junk into something unique and very useable.

You're welcome Balm. please do share what you make.
If anyone needs help just ask.

Thanks Dan, the trick is to use a colour wheel , use opposing colours and try to think out of the box and
come up with what would look good on aliens.
