Warp-Lightning Cannon

The finished Warp-Lightning Cannon for my Skaven army for Warhammer.

It took a lot of work, and I did redesigns on the fly as I went along. The painting is fairly dark, so the glowing green components and the Warlock Engineer stand out more. My favorite part is the salvaged and rebuilt control panel with all that exposed copper wire.

The design includes the cannon itself, which acts as a sort of electrical arcing mechanism rather than a true cannon. This is connected to the control panel. The panel is also connected to the power source. The power source is admittedly a bit crude, being a wagonful of warpstone pieces surrounding a warp compressor and regulator. I tried to get a nice source light glow from the stones inside the wagon, but the pictures don’t do it justice.
