I'm gonna start with my Axis entry, the "Jagdläufer"

I've also written some Fluff about it:

Jagdläufer 3t (Prototyp)

The Jagdläufer 3t is a Tank-hunter designed to counter the new threat of SSU Heavy Tanks and Walkers that are frequently appearing in the area of Zverograd. The concept of the Jagdläufer is based on a Superschwerer Laser, that was originally designed as a Naval Gun. The idea of fitting this huge Weapon onto a Medium Walker was introduced by Major a.D. Dr. Helmut von Hoppenstedt, a leading Blutkreutz Scientist and former Tigerace. It's low profile, high speed and hard, long range hitting power make the 3t perfect for ambush hit and run tactics in urban terrain, sniping at the enemy from afar and retreating before the counterattack.
The project was to be abandoned, because the massive Firepower of the Superschwerer Laser came at the price of very high energy consumption. In the field the Gun can only fire app. 6 shots at low strength, or 3 shots at maximum level, before it has to be refitted with new Batteries, which is a very time consuming process.
As he strongly believes in the possibilities of his design, von Hoppenstedt activated all the contacts his status as a war hero could warrant him, and managed to get a green light from the Blutkreutz High Command for a live field test of his walker. Having it shipped from the secret Blutkreutz R&D Facilities in Czechoslovakia directly to Zverograd, von Hoppenstedt personally pilots the Jagdläufer 3t Prototype. His exceptional skills and the massive destructive power of the impressive Superschwerer Laser have proven to be a deadly combination, and a constant threat for both Allied and SSU forces in the area. Despite the constant trouble to gather the resources for his hungry creation, the Doktor is on the best way to prove that his Jagdläufer is a worthy addition to the axis' Kampfläufer-Waffe.
 

Cheers!

And my entry for the Allies, the Mobile Artillery Walker. Unfortunately I ran a bit out of time on this one, so the painting wasn't finished…

 

Cheers!

That's the pics of my submission, but I make new and better pics for the DUST chronicles magazine. I like the Königsluther more than the Sturmkö***, but they didn't want it.

What a lovely big bug, I guess it's a troop carrier. looks like the body was made up of the building parts of that sci-fi game (the name escapes me), probably why it couldn't win as its using other manufacturer bits so Dust Models couldn't make it.

 

Found it - Hexagon: www.waylandgames.co.uk/pegasus-hobbies/28mm-wargaming-accessories/hexagon-small-set/prod_15076.html

Great work guys!

 

I've made a second video for my Allied entry. I ran out of time on that one, so I didn't take as many photos.

 

Here's the Link: www.youtube.com/watch

 

Cheers!

I love the look of both. the sturmkonig reminds me of the rifleman battlemech from Battletech and Robotech.
