The Grizzly from last years Kickstarter finally arrived! It is a very fine kit, you get some big fat resin blocks to assemble. Everything fits more or less smoothly together, some minor fitting problems can be easily covered.

I am happy! So on to some pics:

The full story, a scale comp shot with a GW Leman Russ, my fun and difficulties and why the two rear turrets are missing can be found here:

Well done indeed!
I've always wanted to paint this piece (well, the original one) :)

Well done. Just out of curiosity: Why did you leave off the 2 back towers?

Please read my Website: http://www.adpublishing.de/html/bauhaus.html ;) ;)
(they were basically just a miscast!)

Great job! Post more of your painted minis :)
Side note: Personally I think that without back turrets it looks much better. In old model they made sense but in WZR one they look impractical [they block main turret].

I would paint and post more.
Problem is that I am in the habit of using pics of my painted models also in my books.
And Prodos can't give me the permission since they do not own the IP. It all a bit grey, but I want to be on the safe side.

Anyway - because of this my Warzone models are constantly on the backlog.

Grizzly. Yes the rear turrets are impractical, but IIRC this is even covered in the rules.
Worse are IMO the two guns at the rear where the axle sits. If you check the KS artwork these guns are more to the front, where they would make sense.
A gun at the Location of the rear axle might be remote controlled, but ammo feed would be a real nightmare.

But who cares about "real life" tank design, it is a cool model!

Hmm... That's an outstanding paintjob, but the model is bit of a letdown. All these machineguns are just way too big and the rear turrets and machineguns make no sense at all... What's especially shameful is that the original model and the new artwork made much more sense because the turrets and machineguns were smaller and on slightly different places.

I can imagine most of these problems could be solved with few conversions and with the removal of the rear turrets as you did (which IMO looks better). But for a 60 buck model I'd expect great design right off the box.

By the way, love the comparison shot with Leman Russ (and the Leman Russ too, for that matter). With some converting the Grizzly could be a really nice Demolisher, Malcador or maybe even Macharius stand in for Mordians or Vostroyans regiments.

And the first Bauhaus Infantry mini, a Hussar.

I reshaped the legs (IMO the stand was too wide) under hot water, works like a charm! After that the mini was mounted on a 25 mm MDF base.

And together with a Mishima Hatamoto:
