Konflikt '47 Kodiak Walker

One of the best parts about Warlord's Konflikt '47 are the cool vehicles that you get to add to your existing armies to turn your standard WW2 armies... "weird."

One of those weird and wacky contraptions is the Kodiak Walker for the US forces. Looking suspiciously like the old Madcat mech from Battletech, this beastie carries an autocannon and a pair of heavy machine guns in each of its two arms. It Bolt Action/K'47 terms it throws out buckets of dice, all of which have an armoured piecing value, making this the perfect tool to stop transports, light vehicles and scary troops like werewolves, zombies and giant mutant bear men in their tracks.

This model was one of my first experiments as a painter using blister pack sponge as a means of "chipping" whitewashed armour. Though it is not perfect, I am quite pleased with the results.

Just looking at this model gets me excited to place Konflikt '47 again. Might have to set up another game sooner than later!
