Introducing the Steel Hog – my entry into the office Gaslands Refuelled: Chop Shop Challenge! I wanted to do a car that looked like it was part of the ‘minor league’ circuit. Something with more personality, perhaps, than performance. For that reason, I hunted the charity shops and found this guy for 50p.

I started the build by covering over the windows with plasticard. The main gun comes from the EM-4 plastic mech set (a great place to pick up some cheap guns that look great on cars).  The two ‘steel hogs’ on the back come from the top of the banner poles in the Oathmark Dwarf Heavy Infantry box. The little ‘tusks’ on the front of the car are pieces off the same banner pole.

I went with a quick and dirty paint job. I don’t paint many vehicles, so my technique isn’t great. The main colour is a dark red because it harkened back to the ‘Hogs’ of the Washington Redskins, for anyone into their classic NFL. Then a bit of steel/silver for the weapons and armour plates, and painting was pretty much done.

I finished it up with a few decals taken from the Games Workshop Cadian Infantry box – thus giving the car its number and its kill stickers!
