The Bär self propelled howitzer

As you might remember I scratch build the “Ziege” APC for my imperial guard army.

As this vehicle is build to be modular I can use the running gear to accommodate other payloads. The next payload is a self propelled howitzer module. It is called “Bär” (bear) in this configuration. It will be used as a stand in for a Basilisk in Warhammer40K games.

Here you see the undercarriage with the completed howitzer payload fitted, turning the vehicle into the Bär.

Here are pictures of the single parts wich will be cast in resin later.

And here are pictures of the building process. The parts were again build from extruded polystyrene .

The howitzer payload was designed after the Bundeswehr Panzerhaubitze 2000 wich looks like this:

More pictures when I finish casting and painting it up.
