IMEF Bulldog question

Recommended Posts

How many parts are there to this model?  Is the head/hatch separate?  I ask because I'd like to see these next to my CAV models. 

 

Cheers.

Not long after I posted this, I checked back in the online store to see it is in five parts.  I still want to know how the head/hatch are attached.  Any help appreciated.

I just bought one. The head and hatch are separate pieces on another sprue. I am assuming the head can be thrown in the spares box and the hatch placed in the closed position. The hollowed out area for the head contains no other details - instruments, controls, and whatnot - so an open hatch and head is could stand some additional detailing.

 

If you're into that thing.

 

Like me...

I'm not familiar with either the dreadnought or DZ Rider, but the Bulldog is 1.75" tall hatch closed and 2" tall hatch opened.

 

In addition to my above post, the hatch has a tank-style viewport on the face, but no corresponding detail on the inside. It's a simple fix.

It's quite a bit smaller than a deadzone strider. 

 

Here are some blurry Lineups. 2v8r0nl.jpg

 

R to L: Dust Axis Heavy Laser PA guy, Warpath Enforcer Captain, IMEF Bulldog, Warmachine Cygnar light warjack, Confrontation dysatis critter. Reaper bones Ogre captain, AT-43 Red Bloc Kolossus, Warmachine Khador Heavy Warjack.

The Heavy Khador warjack on the far right is roughly SM Dreadnought size, though not as wide, and both are a little smaller than the Deadzone Strider.

 

Here is the IMEF Bulldog trooper with some other Bones and metal figures including three IMEF troops, a Chrono-agent guy, and a NovaCorps Sgt.

The hatch just sits open on a line of dired glue and does not close well with the head inside, so it is an either/or thing. For some reason my IMEF Bulldog came with a dinky slotta-base. But, what me worry.

 

EDIT:

 

Here is a side by side of a hastily slapped together Deadzone Coroporation Strider and the IMEF Bulldog1, now sans top hatch cover.

Is that a metal version of the Dreadzone Enforcer captain?  If so, I didn't know they made one.  I have the base DZ set with the Enforcers and Plague models made of "restic."  Looks like a different sculpt too, more dynamic than the one in the base set.

The metal Enforcer captain is from Mantic's Warpath line which predates the Deadzone stuff. It represents the same "thing" but a different sculpt, The restic one is a little bit bulkier. I was afraid to slap one together for the lineup so I used my old metal one. The Warpath line also has a couple of metal forge fathers characters and a large metal Orx captain with a clawed punch dagger/gauntlet thing..

burnsides- a big thank you for posting the pics.  I would love to see the Bulldog next to some CAVs, but these shots will do.  Thanks again.

The bulldog looks like it would fit a 40mm base nicely (next to the Cynaran Sentinal which is also based on a 40mm base).

 

Is it based on a 30mm base in the picture?  It certainly appears to be on a 30mm base.

Oddly enough, a 30mm base was included in my 'kit'. The track of the machine is considerably wider. I'm going with a finished wood block...

 I tacked it to the base that came in the blister. I think a larger one would be better. I'd post a pic with the lid down but it doesn't fit quite right and I'm not keep for bending,filing, or putty just to get a quick assembly photo.

I slapped the bulldog together mostly as a distraction from working on my Shadows of Brimstone: "Swamps of Death" Box. They made nine of the twelve tiny undeads in the box mult-part. Flying Frog are insane.

 

And I now have them all slapped together awaiting putty and sanding. 

 

Now I need to put the Malifaux RPG multi-part male kit together to make some more 1880's gun and sword dudes.

 

The le paint, or le procrastinate and put in bins.

      Hello all, want to share the last minis I've painted: Alice and White rabbit.
      I was inspired by the color choice of the 50's Disney animated movie, so blonde air, azure dress and white apron for Alice; no more space for other colors but the jade-green vial, and the brown boots.
      Red, blue and yellow is my color choice for the White rabbit; instead of white, I opted for a more natural "leprous" looks for the fur.
      I keep my search for the "add more contrast quest"... little by little I think I'm achieving it 
      Quite Happy of the result 
      Let me know what you girls and guys think about them.
       


      As always every advice and critics is more than welcome.
      Thanks for watching.

      So after painting a bunch of fantasy adventurers, I decided I needed a bit of a change of pace.  Enter my finds of some IMEF infantrymen and a mech from something I'm not familiar with (all Reaper minis).. and combine that with my extensive experience with military model kits.  What you get is this project to paint the IMEF guys in colors inspired by the Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces; one is finished and the others are in progress.
       
      The mech is being painted up in camo inspired by Japanese army tank camo colors to make it kind of a matching set.  In the last pic you can also see my Victorian adventuress from the Raj, if you want to call it that.

      So over in another of my threads talking about vehicles, we were talking about doing an A-Team, so when I ran across this Star Wars Chewbacca Monster Truck, I knew I had found my futuristic version of B.A.'s van:



      So my A-Team is going to consist of:
      Hannibal - 50147: General Drake
      Face - 50010: Daniel Sterling, Secret Agent of GUARD
      Murdoch - 50123: Space Hero
      BA - 50002: Boris Barayev, Five Suns Smuggler 

      General Drake and Daniel Sterling I think will be fine straight up for Hannibal and Face, but I need to do some conversion work on the other two minis for Murdoch and BA. And that's the reason I'm posting this as a WiP is because I'm going to need some help from the likes of @TaleSpinner and you other conversion pros. 

      Murdoch:

      For Murdock, I want to add a ball cap.  I have a couple of different ideas on how to do this, but I'm wondering what the best way would be. 

      B.A. Baracus:

      For B.A., I'm going to do a weapon swap to give him bigger guns, add Mr T's iconic haircut, and hopefully add some sort of gold chains.    The weapon swaps and hair should be pretty straight up, but I'm not sure how to do the gold chains.

      To change from fantasy, I wanted to do a quick paint of a Chronoscope mini in Bones. According to the store, it is "Frank Buck, Adventurer".
      I like the sculpt and its likeness to a very famous archaeologist / adventurer in the movies.
       
      My goal was a quick & simple paint job and nothing fancy for the base.
      The problem was that the mini was badly bent at the ankles making it lean forward a lot and no boiling/cooling was able to fix it.
      So, I still had to re-base it, and got a bit carried away in the re-basing process which yield to this mini vignette: "Heading into the Jungle"
       

       
      The tree and base texture was made with Scupley and lichen.
      The car is a Tamiya model kit of a Russian field car.
