Veteran Loud Gunter by Tarrom Veteran Loud Gunter by Tarrom
This is one of my early works: a heavily converted GW SM. I've used modelling putty, some GW bits, plasticard, Zinge's flexible ammo belt ([link]) and a lot of different scraps.
This miniature got highly rated on CMoN ([link]) and some other Internet communities and I even got CoolMiniOrNot Annual 2011 invitation, even though I don't know, whether it will be in the Annual after all, or not.
A little story behind the model:
So here he stands tall, "Loud" Gunter, veteran and master of battlefront, famouse not only for his incredible strength, courage and booming voice, but for his weapon of type, rarely seen in the arms of Space Marines - his assault cannon "The Emperor's Roar".
This artifact was a gift from Magos Explorator, whos excavation mission was overwhelmed by the horde of rampaging Orc looters and nearly wiped out, when the rescue team, lead by Sergeant Gunter, descended from the orbit right in between, protecting the remaining Techpriests like a living but impenetrable shield.
With cold blood and Bolter fire they held the line, yet the numbers of xenos seemed endless... So not to say about the defenders.
And it was then he saw an assault cannon amongst other artifacts, recovered by the Techpriests, locked and loaded, ready to spill the blood of unclean, and in a moment later the six barreled vengeance was risen and the mighty roar flew over the battlefield as the veteran shredded through the greenskin ranks with unbridled wrath and thousands shells. The battle was over in no time as the hundreds Orcs were ripped apart in a blink of an eye.
"Now it is yours" - the Magus said as the echoes of cannon fire died away "The spirit of the weapon has chosen you. THE Emperor himself has chosen you".
So the artifact got it's name. And it is interesting to note, that no one of the Expedition can recall the cannon being loaded as it was recovered in unusable condition.

Well done...the assault cannon looks great and the details sculpted on the armor are awesome. Great paint job too.

any chance fo commision - same model but not painted?
Tarrom Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
That's quite a flattering proposition =)
I guess, it's possible, though it won't be exactly the same model and won't happen soon, since I don't have much time for the hobby this days =/
