The new and improved Typhoon I was not happy with the result of the previous Typhoon I made. First of all the mini didn’t really came out as I wanted it to be, Second, I think the Chaingun is too short range for a battle crawler. The only real option is the Mortar. On the left you can see the finised Typhoon and below I have made a step by step guide on how I did it followed by some bigger photos, enjoy! What I used: This is what I used to built the Typhoon. 1 Space Marine Vindicator Front Plate: 1…

   The XIAO 3.14PI miniature is from the VOID range and is the best female miniature ever made, only Dragyri females from Dark Age come close, she is just perfect in all ways and I really wanted her in my army, so I turned her into a Neo Soviet officer carrying a Hammer and a Sickle.

  I didn’t like the face of the Officer (sorry) so I replaced the face with a mask using a Cyclops head. I removed the Viper and replaced it with the handle of a Khorne Beserker Chainsword with a Boltgun bit on top. This is ofcourse the leash to his Rad hound, which i have just finished converting. Officer Kalinkov’s Rad hound I wanted Kalinkov’s Rad hound to look different from other rad hounds, so I used both heads from the blister on the mini, further more I added a Cyclops back pack to the Rad hound’s backpack to make…

   The Kommander has had his head replaced with a head from a Vindicare Assassin because to me Kommanders would always have the best equipment in the Neo Soviet army so it seemed odd he didn’t have a gas mask as well. I then used the a Vangaurd arm holding a Kalashnikov to arm the Kommander properly.

  I painted two out of the three Chem Grunts in rags. The third was painted in an old white doctor coat, he is probably one of those few nutcases who sign up volunterily for the Chem grunts.

Larger photo The Vanguards have the same basic clothing colours as the Rad Troopers but with better painted armour plates to show that although they still have crap equipment it is by far better than the Rad Troopers equipment. Some of the Vanguards have hand a “hand-job” to give them rad grenades and one have had his head replaced with a spacemarine head so he is without helmet. The helmet is used for the Wolverine conversion. Vanguard with Wolverine When VOR first came out there wasn’t a Vanguard with Wolverine released. In fact it wasn’t released untill the game was dead! So…

  I want the cyclops to stand out from the rest of the Neo Soviets as something unholy and something that shouldn’t have been made/ created. To do that I choose to paint them in a very drastic colour scheme, starting with black and highlighting all the way to white to make the look really rough and enhance the mini’s muscle-shape.

This Typhoon is scratch-built using some VOID minis and other unknown minis. Not the best weapon of the soviet army. If you want a Typhoon you should definetly build a Typhoon with a Mortar instead. Much much better value.

To be able to field my ML1-Irontusk mutant I needed a handler and at least one other mutant. However, the Rad Beast have always looked good to me so I painted three of them. As I needed these guys fast for a rapidly approaching game weekend, I have to speed paint them in order to be able to give Irontusk the attention he needed. I am actually quite happy with the results. Esspecially the handler. As it turned out the colour for the coat I painfully mixed back when I painted the Vanguards in 2001 I now had an almost identical Vallejo paint. Cool!…

   About the mini As soon as I heard VOR was returning I knew I would have to face Mocaiv, my arch nemesis on the fields of the Maelstrom again so my mind turned to anything heavy and hard hitting. While I do have the Ursa I wanted something a bit unique and decided to go for an ML1-Irontusk mutant. As I have never been a big fan of the Whitetusk Bull the decision to buy the Whitetusk Chieftain instead was quick to make. However, due to the sheer size of the beast finding something suitable for the bionic parts proved…

This has to be one of the most useful Neo Soviet resources on the Internet. A Custom Mutant Chart made by Valdric with 100 Custom Muties! Thanks to Valdric for letting me link to his Chart. Go to the 100 Custom Mutant Chart Bull Mutant by Valdric. Nice work but I would have named it “The Killer Cow” 😉
