Panzerzug BP44 Train Day 2

by Spack on Tue May 15, 2012 11:15 pm
Not much progress today, decided to add some track to the model and duplicate the tender (the real train had two tenders, one behind the locomotive and one in front), and add a rough camo texture to the armour plates. Once the chassis frame and buffers are added it will look a lot better, hopefully I'll progress with that tomorrow, and if there's time also add some of the larger hatches and the driver windows and vision slits.

Panzerzug "Panzerjagerwagen" WIP

by Spack on Sun Jun 24, 2012 7:26 pm
Started work on the 1st variant of the Panzerjagerwagen, a flat railcar with Pz IV turret mounted on a raised section. This railcar sits at the very end of the train, using it's plough to remove barricades from the railway and it's turret to fight off attacks. The rear of the chassis is heavily slanted so that the ramp from the Pz 38t well wagon fits underneath it - when the tank needs to be deployed the Panzerjagerwagon is detached and rolled forward, leaving a gap for the Pz 38t to drive down the ramp and out on patrol.

And a shot of the BP44 half train with all the railcars in position, including the Panzertriebwagen 51 between the artillery/flak railcar and the well wagon carrying the Pz 38t.

And finally a shot of the entire BP44 train (note that there's only one Panzertriebwagen 51 in the rear...

Cain's BA Blog 26th May

by Cain Tiberius on Thu May 26, 2011 12:17 pm
Howdy folks.
Those of you who met me at AoS meet in March will probably my first Stormraven which I based on the Hunter Killer from Terminator Salvation.
Well today I now present my 2nd completed Stormraven.

As you'll notice, it is based on GWs SR kit. I stretched it using someone's idea which on B&C which can be found here
But, I continued with my VTOL design. And I was actualy quite suprised how close my first and second SR came dimentionally speaking. I feel they could easily be imagined to be different models of the same vehicle.
Anywho, see what you guys think.

Board Games - Mantic Dwarf King's Hold

by Baragash on Sat Apr 09, 2011 5:55 pm
So assembling Dwarf King's Hold is part of my Q2 Hobby Challenge

Just finished the 12 Skeletons for the game as well. There's also a Pit of Souls (used in the game) and a Pile of Bones (you get counters for these, but if you had enough Mantic skellies, as I do with a 1k army, you could use "actual" piles), and a Skeleton Rat (used in Kings of War).


They were nice models to put together:
- mould lines have been run along the edges of fabric etc, so that basically means there aren't that many to clean up
- unlike GW skellies that attach on the spine, Mantic skellies lock over each other (about half...
