a while back, back when the Organ gun/cannon set first came out, I bought a set and after having constructed the organ gun, I found myself with a spare cannon barrel. Using the empty sprues I turned the scrap into another cannon.
Now, with the Grudge Match event coming up (if you don't know what I'm talking about, you've been living under a rock for a few months or you haven't seen the nice subforum over at the Battleground) I found myself with not enough war machines. Having lots and lots of empty of halfempty sprues lying around, it would be a shame not to put them to use. Making all kinds of fences with them was one of the ideas (I might still come to that) but taking my inspiration from 5-6th edition war machines, before Dwarfs switched over to full metal bolt and stonethrowers, I put my sprues to use.
The progress so far...:
The example being:
One of the cannons I finished before:
For my stone thrower, I've ordered these wheels from Thomarillion. Check this guy out, excellent customer service. http://www.thomarill...p74hk3elrcj40h7
Also up and coming, the old edition bolt throwers. Even though they are less useful in this edition, the only material I use are sprues, so I might as well make some more.
Also, this would be an excellent way to get more use out of a Battalion box, using the sprues to get additional war machines.
