Grey Knights Dreadknight Conversion WIP Part 3

by Spack on Sun Apr 17, 2011 4:39 pm
I just couldn't leave it alone again. This time I decided that the shoulders needed a little something, and I ended up adding some pauldrons.

Other than magnetising the weapons the Dreadknight is (at least for the moment!) complete.

BA Blog 9th Nov 2012: New Cpt Aphael, Honour Guar and Ride.

by Cain Tiberius on Fri Nov 09, 2012 3:13 pm
Howdy dudey folks. I brings new stuff. Hopes you enjoy.

Firstly; I re-made Captain Aphael of the 2nd Co. I wasn't entirely happy with the pose of the first one, and I had also experimented with Quickshade on the first which I also was terribly thrilled with... So here be the new and improved Captain Aphael. I also modelled and magnetised several load out options to be several characters from the BA Codex.

Counts as Tycho (non DC)

Panzerzug BP44 First Mockup

by Spack on Tue May 29, 2012 8:23 am
To make sure that the locomotive and tender won't look too big or too small alongside the existing OO scale trains that my son has on his railway a card mockup of the Sketchup model has been made. Using the Flattery plugin it was pretty easy to unfold the model faces to create a flat printable mesh that could then be folded and glued.


This is scaled at 1:87 (which is HO scale rather than OO, but means that the train will be in proportion to the track width), and next to a small 0-4-0 steam engine looks about the right size. This card mockup will also be used to find a chassis to fit the locomotive, and I've already got donor parts for the tender chassis from an old flat bed carriage which has 6 wheeled bogies at each end (the tender is sitting on one of these bogies in the photo below).

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...
