Time for some updates!
Firstly, here are some WIPs of broadsides I am working on. They are in the process of painting, having been undercoated and base-coloured , but these shots are pre-undercoat.

Both are forgeworld broadsides, a kind birthday present last year from my gaming group. Every *single* joint had to be pinned which took a long time and much frustration. What I wouldn't give for some extra mechadendrite arms.
I have tried to make the poses fluid to fit with the rest of the army as if they are in motion and actually firing.

Please forgive the poor photography, a cameraphone was all I had to hand at the time:
