For my second entry in this years Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge #12 I will be visiting the planet Vulcan. Each AHPC has a theme, this year the pictured solar system and accompanying interpretations are guidelines to follow, but only for those who choose to. Otherwise participants can paint what ever they want and score according to the standard AHPC criteria. See link below.
The setting is Afghanistan, 1920’s, post 3rd Afghan War. Sniping at invaders on the Northwest Frontier is not just a Pashtun pastime, it’s a mandatory full time tactic to dissuade invaders. To counter the sniping on resupply and troop convoys as well as for reconnaissance the Anglo-Indian forces began to deploy Armored Cars.
This Rolls Royce armored car is a 1920’s version with solid tires left over after WWI and shipped to India for hard duty on the Grim.
How does this tie into Vulcan, well, it’s a “logical” solution to a tactical problem, of course.
This vehicle is a 3D printed model, a gift, 1 of 4 armored cars from a long time friend. It’s got the perfect amount of detail and tons of rivets. I drilled out holes in the hull and turret bottom for a magnet and scrap metal to be able to keep the turret rotating without the turret falling off.
