Thanks-glad you like what I've done so far :) I hope the end result comes out well. It seems to be going okay. Some of it's a bit wobbly (my skill at cutting plasticard could stand some improvement), but overall I think it'll be acceptable when it's done :)

Looking back over my initial reply, I realize you misunderstood me just a bit.

Oh, yes, the T-Rex-mobile is utter madness incarnate. But the soldiers are a glorious whole, though I did stop to admire the 'flamers' a bit. However, it was the idea of taking this to a 40K table that, indeed, clinched my speechlessness. Hear hear!

'Cavorite gravity engine'-which reduces the weight of the machine by 90%-allowing the T-rex to be able to carry it ;)

That makes sense.
But how do they steer?
Will there be a stick with a goat on it hanging in front of Rex's face? Or a skull cap with electrodes?

What make is Rex?

Well, he did say something about 'and  may add a chain leading to the dino's mouth-'; however, I also admire your suggestion of carrot, er, goat-and-stick. 'S'uh, the shot carried away the steering mechanism! Goat's still in the air!'

As for the Cavorite engine, obviously a tired, old cast off from the Aerial Naval unit. Insufficient to carry a whole 'nef.

Fantastic! I am really enjoying this thread and the inventiveness of your builds
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Going has been a little slow as I've been distracted by other projects, but I've completed the Royal Guard platoon and now have 20 out of the 55 'Jungle Legion' platoon done (pictured below)

SpaceGoblin ,the WOW FACTOR of this army is so huge it will find no suitable opposition in the battlefield!  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

I really like your gritty and realistic painting style, and your crazy ideas - as well as the flawless execution of them - are perfectly suited for the setting, CONGRATULATIONS!

And please keep posting your developments!  ;)
