Tom McBride of Blood & Skulls has released his newest conversion project. The Jagdsword!
From Tom McBride:
Have you ever wondered what a German WWII Shadowsword would look like? Well, that is the genesis of my latest commission.
The client has a German themed WWII Imperial Guard army and wanted his super-heavy to have some of the same look as the rest of his heavily converted troops. The thought was this is going to be something similar to a Jagdpanther top set back like the Elefant tank with panzer-like turrets on the four sponsons. The main gun has more of an artillery piece look to it similar to my Kingslayer cannon but bigger.
To make things easier I used the Shadowsword top but turned backwards and pitched up like the Jagdpanther. The front armor has also been sloped to match. The sides were widened a bit to line it up the edge of the armor plates above the tracks. A ball turret mounted TL heavy bolter is mounted next to the main cannon on the right side.
Another interesting feature is a metal scaled skirt to protect the road wheels. This feature also ties in with his infantry models. I did this by sculpting up a master that was cast six times and glued in place of the original skirt.
Thanks again to Tom for making an awesome conversion and helping inspire us.
