Has anyone on the forums added zimmerit style armor to the hull if their axis walkers? It would definitely give them that retro/historical feel.

Anyone out there done it?

I have not seen any. 

I am not real crazy the look itself to motivate me enough to model on the hulls.

The Germans have anti-armor magnetic mines (zombie suicide squad), but the Allies do not appear not to (unless the BbQ Squad democharges are magnetic, so that may be another reason for the lack of it on the German armor.

I've done Zim using standard decorating filler on lots of historical models from 1/100 to 1/4 scale. While it would probably add a little interest on the hull it might look a little awkward on the leg sections and logically I would say you gotta Zim those legs too as they are prime targets for magnetic satchel charges I would say! Saying that, no reason why you can't have a crack at it, always nice to see new approaches and looks on these fantastic dust models ;)

Even though realistically I'd expect the legs to be prime targets for magnetic bombs, I was also thinking Zimm would look bad on the legs.  I think aesthetically it would look cool on the hull and would immediately evoke the feeling of a German tank.
