That is nice... Maybe a longer, thinner version (like a Flak 88) as an anti-air variant? Not sure how a missile launcher variant would look though - maybe a series of tubes? You know, like the Internet? Alternatively, something like a Nebelwerfer, but those were more along the size of a Spud Gun, and not a Medusa replacement (which is what I'd like to see.) Most rocket launchers were vehicle mounted, and not towed like the Saltshakers.

EDIT: Though something like this http://www.ausairpower.net/NATO/Aspide-Towed-Launcher-1S.jpg could work, though it looks a little more modern than something that would be seen in a Siegemasters army.

I'm thinking something like a towed version of the M142 HIMARS myself. Just dump that cab...

I don't know - it looks a little too modern with the whole pod aesthetic. Personally, I like the exposed missiles of the FW Medusa, so maybe something like this:

My current inclination is to put really big, weird stuff onto the Charybdis (big ass gun, missile, freaky weapons) for people to proxy into their AM armies. The soviet inspired tracked artillery would be aimed at siegemaster guys.

For towed missiles, perhaps something like the "Bloodhound" scaled and amended as required. One significant advantage here being that the toys or kit may still be available, and at 1:72 scale these might even go straight onto the table . . . if you can find one that is.
(A lovely Airfix kit, it was one of my favourites as a kid)

I'd also be in for the saltshaker proxies, anything to fluff out my krieg really.

Seems that Woodland Scenics pigments, beloved by our cherished Onyx ("Call me Steve") are susceptible to drying if left undisturbed for a couple of years. They are NOT receptive to resurrection attempts.

Live and learn.

Huh, seems like GHQ beat me to it quite a long time ago:

Hrm. Theirs aren't in a firing position though. And having a long AA variant and possibly a missile variant would be cool.

they're also probably quite tiny knowing GHQ.... I'd quite like a nice 'heroic scale' field artillery gun m'self....or maybe nine...
