MK1 Rhino Chasis Conversion Tutorial 9th July

by Cain Tiberius on Sun Jul 10, 2011 12:46 am
Hey folks.

A couple months ago I posted pics of my MK1 Rhino/Razorback conversion, and had calls to show how I made it. Well I suck at WiP or tutorials. But I am working on another and have taken alot more pics.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

First of all I have to say the way I made the Grills is different from the first time. But I was able to get them made in 1/4 of the time.

I noticed that the interior of the rear hatch to the Rhino kit has a nice Grill patern. So I used Greenstuff to make 4 positive molds of the patern. Its inportnant to try an keep the green stuff about 1mm thick. (Thicker will mean more work on the next stage as I found out)

Then I cut 4 pieces of plasticard to the shape of the grills including the surounding colars. (I first did it with paper till I got the desired size.) Then I did the same with the Green Stuff moldings...

Russians in MidWar

by DaBoss on Mon Aug 22, 2011 12:36 pm
With my British Armoured Car Company finished except for the Typhoons for the Battlefront Euro-Tournament in September, its time to start on my next army for the Newbury Colours and Reading Warfare Tournaments.
Both these are running MidWar Tournaments and as I like the Eastern Front was a choice between Germans and Russians.
With the latest release of the KV-1e models by Zvezda, it had to be Russians, so Mixed Tankovy Batalon from the Eastern Front Book.

You have to take 3 Combat Platoons so I've gone for Red Army (Fearless Conscripts)
T-26 Tankovy Company (10) T-26S obr 1939 @205pts
Medium Tankovy Company (10) T-34 obr 1941 @605pts
Heavy Tankovy Company (6) KV-1e @620pts

This compulsory takes up 1430pts of the total 1750pts

So now some Corps Support (both of these are Fearless Trained):
Razvedki Platoon - 1 Command Rifle/MG, 6 Rifle/MG Teams and 4 captureed Sd Kfz 251 halftracks @160pts
Guards Rocket Mortar Battalion - 4 Katyushas, 1 Truck,...

Challenger II Project 13th August

by Cain Tiberius on Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:51 am
MOOOOOOAAAAARR pics...

First off, 2 I already posted. Like I said before the main chasis went together easily. But the the Turret was a biotch, talk about misfitting.
Anywho, I added the main Battle cannon from the Baneblade and external fuel tanks and exhausts to the rear of the main hull.

For it to meet the minimum armaments of the Baneblade, I had to fit a hull mounted Twin Heavy Bolter. I had thought about putting it in the Driver dugout. But it would have looked odd in the middle right under the main cannon, and really there was insufficient space. So i decided to cut out the front section altogether and fabricate something suitable out of plasticard.

Sons of Horus - Test Painting

by DaBoss on Sun Nov 03, 2013 2:12 pm
Just need to finish the base and do some highlights on the Shoulder Pauldrons
Think the Shoulder Icon needs darkening?
Plus Squad symbol of other shoulder - What to put there? Did Tactical Squad Markings exist in 30K pre-codex astartes?
- test painting of my Sons of Horus done.

SPACE:1959

by estarriol on Sat Jul 02, 2011 12:03 pm
Welcome to my blog here. I hope to have it cover my SPACE:1959 project in one place.

This has been ongoing for over a year now, but with interuptions like moving etc it has progressed in fits and starts.

Firstly my latest additions:

Building is directly lifted from the wonderful Matakishi's site. http://www.matakishi.com/afghancompoundbuild.htm

I have borrowed his Afghan compounds to use for villagers living near the Fire Zone on Venus. It is currently unpained as I intend to make several more of them and then batch paint them.

The base is 300mm square MDF, and the Orks on the roof for scaling are GW ones.

Also in the shot are 2 of my wip vehicles, a Saladin APC and a M113.

On the roof is also a BAOV Dragon Team and the Brig overseeing the building with the thought of using it for his new HQ.
