Panzerzug loco and tender remodelled

by Spack on Thu Aug 09, 2012 10:57 am
In order to accomodate the Stanier 8F loco and tender that I'm using instead of a BR 57, the loco and tender have had to be adjusted to acommodate the additional length and different wheel positions. I've tried to keep the overall as close as possible, with the armour panel edges at midpoints between axles and the access hatches on the loco centred on the driving wheels.

At the top is the original model, below is the extended version to fit the 8F.

And here are the unfolded versions ready to print.

Finally a shot of the half train model with the extended loco:

BA Blog 10th March More Vehicles.

by Cain Tiberius on Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:29 pm
Greetings peeps. Finally got the other 2 Rhinos and the Landraider from my old force painted up. Pretty strait forward really, no complex resorations or conversions.

Rhino's for the 5th and 6th Squads. No razor option as the lids where already glued down.

The Landraider I simply darkened up in the same manor as the old squads. I redid some of the detail and added more to bring it into line with the rest of my vehicles.

Grey Knights WIP

by Bob_to_Some on Wed Apr 27, 2011 8:19 pm
I thought a blog would help me keep on top of my project!

I have had a fairly good size of grey knights for some years now, back when the now old ones were released as deamonhunters.

So my army thus far:

Grand Master - Built/painted
Librarian - WIP
Brotherhood Champ - WIP
Inquisitor - done


Culexus Assasin - done
Eversor - done
Purifiers x 9 - halberds and 2 x incinerators - Done (Want to repaint though)
+Rhino - unpainted
Inquisitorial henchmen - mix of minis 10-20 depending on what I field - mixture of painted unpainted minis

6 Terminators with mix of halberds and swords, 1 incinerator and 1 pyscannon

6 normal Grey knights with halberds and 2 x incinerators

Storm Raven - built but not painted

Dreadknight - Want to convert to be almost running and sword in 2 hands - next big project

Dreadnaught - done

LR Crusader - converted and built not painted

I will try and tick off as I go and undoubtedly buy more stuff.

Next purchases will be a squad of Paladins and normal strike squad...

Horus Heresy Interlude

by DaBoss on Sun Dec 15, 2013 2:30 pm
Just started on the next batch of Horus Heresy model build.
Fulgrim_Ferrus_2.JPG

That's 2 Spartan Tanks, Primarchs Fulgrim and Ferrus Manus drying out from there soak in water to remove any residual mould lubricant.

While waiting on the first parts of the Spartan hulls to set before adding the track units, decided to go ahead and build the two Primarchs.

Fulgrim and his brother Ferrus Manus

Fulgrims acenic base makes for a very big model, but can now see why when together with Ferrus on the full scenic diorama makes sense (not built that yet - probably will when I start painting)

Looks like I will collect every Primarch model from Forgeworld - just such great sculpts and has having just got to 'Vulkan Lives', love seeing their different characters.
Seems...

Panzerjager-Triebwagen 51 Armoured Tank Hunter Railcar

by Spack on Sun Jun 03, 2012 11:38 am
Technically not part of the BP42/BP44 trains as the Panzerjager-Triebwagens 50-55 never saw service, I wanted to include one of these Panzer IV turret armed railcars in the train model. This is the undetailed model to use as the basic plasticard template, with lots of hatches to be added during the build. The turrets are really rough but give an idea of how the final model will look.

If I can get my hands on a few 1:76 or 1:72 scale PzIV turrets from model kits it'll make life easier, but I don't really need to buy entire model kits - I'll need at least 4 PzIV turrets in total, 2 for this railcar and 2 more for the Panzerjagerwagens (flat cars with a single PzIV turret) that will be at each end of the train. I even looked at Plastic Soldier Company 1:72 PzIVs as a possible option but...
