The scale is a bit off...
Do you not have any spare at ease Kriegers that could fill the role?
I know what you mean about the scale. It was a decision to modify the IG or try to heavily modify the arms from the troops at rest. I'm not very good at using greenstuff, so I picked the IG mod. I plan on trimming them down a bit to remove some of the "puffiness" in their flight suits. If that fails, I am thinking I could modify two of the troops from the heavy mortar squad.
New arrival from customs today -
Whoah, the door gunners look efdup.... I think you need to replace the hands, and the legs remind me of cartoons with the big thighs and tiny feet.
I really like what you did with the Gorgon squad. Very nice.
Ya, the gunners still need "some" work. I'm counting them as an experiment and a skill builder.
Thanks for the comment about the Gorgon squad. It's a great deal if you are collecting DK.
More pics to come soon. The Vanquisher and 10 death riders are planned to get primed over the weekend.
Get some color on them, there are already to many logs with no painted DKoK, lol ;-)
I must admit I do not like the gunners either, they look like Mr Muscle on Steroids, use the mortar crew, with FW prices you need them to look as good as they are.
Where are the pictures of that Malcador!!!!
They have added the DKoK to AB, this was done via the AB40k Maintainers site
T Hawk great looking stuff.
I too am after a vanquisher macharius. Did it come with lascannon sponsons? I can only see Heavy Bolter, Heavy Flamer, and Heavy Stubber ones.
Regarding the pilots.
All Imperial Flyers are Imperial Navy not Imperial Guard. Therefore you won't need to make the valkyrie door gunners Kreig troopers. Since the Navy use their own crew in the Valkyrie, IA1 specifically mentions that door gunners are included in the ships regular crew and are not passengers.
If I were you I would steer away from the krieg influences on the door gunners. Its out of place background wise.
Hope you don't mind me posting my log here mate, you can post yours on mine ;-)
You can see the entire details of what is included on my log Gundam and no you can not have lascannons, stubbers are standard, then optional upgrades to HB or Flamers.
Thanks Crippler thats much appreciated.
Nice blog by the way, its certainly an impressive force.
I spent ages converting a krieg armageddon basilisk to find out that the army list in IA5 doesn't allow them. I was a bit gutted to say the least, I may use t to count as an heavy artillery immobile earthshaker if I use the Seige list.
I've found quite a few errors or contradictions in the list so I'm not sure which direction to take. As of yet theres no FW FAQ for it.

cross-posting works for me!
hahah, I love those door gunners! excellent!
I would love an Army Builder file.
Looking good, that's a great way to get loads of DKoK infantry and well done for not damaging any of them.
Where I get all my inspiration from: The Ammobunker, everyone's welcome!
I'm going back to IG gunners..... so much for that experiment!
I am now using auto primer for the resin parts as the GW primer (black paint) was not adhering well. Last nights group was 10 Death riders, 3 heavy mortars, and 3 thudd guns. The Vanquisher and the Malcador are next in line.
I'm planning to airbrush the tanks and the salmander this weekend. Pics to follow soon...
BTW, I've finished building a small spray booth for painting indoors. I use A/C filters mounted in a box as a back wall. The box is attached to a shop vac and the exhaust is vented outside through a fitting that is mounted to the window. Let me know if anyone would like more info or pics of the booth.
Ya what kind of spray paint are you using? I've had a problem with the Choas Black stuff from GW but the new cans I have work fine. It'd be nice though to have another consistent option. Btw I like where this log is going so keep it up and get some troops painted.
I love my Death Korps but they sure hate my wallet... Immer Isenherz!

I'm using Dupli-Color sandable primer in flat black. It appears to be working better than the other. Also, it's $4.50 vs $10 a can....
My painting has been delayed while I finish the "MOAB" (Mother of all Bombard) vehicle. It's a conversion project for the flower petal template used in apocalypse. If all goes as planned, I'll be posting pics of it this weekend.
