I took a break from the huge tank project to build a Bastion I picked up. The new Planetstrike book allows the defender to have bunkers, but GW only makes an imperial version, nothing for the other armies. I guess I'm lucky that captured imperial bastions are perfect for the Blood Pact!
I set about chaosifying it straight away and it was easy work thanks to the forgeworld brass etched icons pack I have. This tutorial on working with brass etch really helped me, they're harder to apply than I first thought. I was able to build each section without gluing it to the one below. This will allow me to make the bastion a single story should I desire.
Lower imperial eagles covered with plasticard and marked with a brass etch khorn symbol.
Most of the imperial eagles were filed off, but I couldn't resist going to town with various sized drill bits to make one that's been shot up.
The bastion comes with an antennae array with various imperial markings. Those were promptly clipped off and I tried a subtle approach to showing how it has been subverted. A catachan vox backpack with a small khorn symbol sits on the base and is plugged in using the great metal wire from dragonforge (look in the sculpting and modeling section). The wires are cast from the same metal as miniatures so they're much easier to work with than guitar string, as you can see from the natural flow mine has.
The door of the bastion. The space on the door where I put the small brass etch was the perfect size. It's like they planned it that way...
Overall shot of the back. This side has the most chaos and khorn icons on it. I was glad to finally have a place to put all the large brass etch pieces I have.
