My inspiration come from the heavy armor medic.

I'm not so sure those AA guns come with Barking Dog.  A friend has the kit and no AA weapons were included and also the colour of the unpainted AA guns is all wrong compared to the actual plastic of the Barking Dog.

Strange...
In my kit the two weapons are in position 33 and 34 on the weapon's plate, if I remember correctly

I discovered that my installation of weapons is not correct as can be seen
on this crusader.

How do you mean, not correct?  I've asked me mate to check his sprue in case he just didn't notice, what guns are they supposed to be with the Dog 20mm Oerlikon guns?

As you can see, I set the base of the gun directly on the turret.
I had to go through the inside.

My kit has them as well. I have not built it yet but was wondering what they were meant for. I like your creation.

My mate found his AA bits and is srating to assemble (thanks for spotting this) and so have out a card together for him and you :), what do you think?

The Oerlikon stats have been derived from comparing the .50 MG stats as we now have stats for single, twin and quad weapon systems and applied these to the 20mm quad of the Axis guns.  The basic formula appears to be +2 dice for the second barrel and add +1 dice for each barrel after.  I've only given it Advance Reactive as it neither has the radar found on the big AA walkers nor the rate of fire from a quad gun to give it Superior Reactive.

I've costed it at 35pts, the same as a Mickey as it is the closest comparisson.  Both have their pros and cons and could not say which would be the best value to take against an unknown enemy.

Excellent, the characteristics are balanced.
You did a great job of analysis to find the right settings.

But you're right, we will know its true potential when
the rules for aircraft come.

Thank you.

 Nice job! I´m particulary fond of these adaptations, since I feel they get you deeper into the world of dust...

BTW I assume you sculpted the masks...they also have a cthuiluesque feel XD

Nice addition of skirt armour.  The Ryu have these too and Dust models have given it the Damage Resilient trait, maybe worth an extra 10pts?
