The funny thing is at that time, I didn't know that the core of this ship was a real model, edited in the eighties by Games Workshop: the Dwarf Juggernaut, a steam-powered warmachine, which preceded by a decade the Empire steam tank (now we know that the human race stole our technology ^_^).
And guess what, thanks to Thomas from Germany (thanks again!), I am now the proud owner of a dwarf juggernaut. Of course, since I have only one model, I won't try to convert it, even if, if I remember well, I had bought some swivel guns and other artillery pieces with this idea in mind... Anyway, here is a couple of pictures of what I've just received for my 40th birthday.
Needless to say that there's a lot of preparation to do before considering painting this monster: I don't know when I can start working on this model (I have to finish my unit of warriors first), but I hope the final result will be worth the time (and the money!) spent on it.
