Paper tanks - Jagdpanther

by Spack on Tue Jun 05, 2012 7:40 pm
Built another paper tank today, this time a German Jagdpanther tank destroyer which is one of my favourite vehicles in World of Tanks. I resized a 1/100 scale paper kit I found online to 1/87 scale so it can be transported on the Panzerzug train.

Building the kit was fiddly as it had no instructions, and I've got a few detail parts left to add to it - machine gun, cupola, exhausts, jerry cans, and various bits on the superstructure, but the basic tank is complete.

Malifaux - Pandora, Avatar and old sculpt

by DaBoss on Sat Feb 18, 2012 6:51 pm
Finished painting my Pandora models, including Avatar of Famine (with Teenage Candy) and old sculpt of Pandora.
Planning to use old sculpt to show her having reached the 1st manifestation criteria.


Teenage Candy needs a little bit more work finishing off her base and maybe darken her hair - bit bright yellow at the moment.

Progress!...well sort of.

Exciting news! Had a chat with some of the new custom bits websites and got a decent quote on casting custom parts! Whoop! Will solve my head issue and hopefully open the door to lots of cool ideas. The downside is I need to provide a sculpt, something I can't do, however I have a plan! I found some paper craft unfolded Helghan assault heads and hope to downscale, match 28mm and build loosely using plastic card. If that fails then will give good old green stuff (which is doomed to failure) however this is the really cool part. I used to be fairly decent at 3d Studio Max and after getting some quotes from 3d printers I think this maybe the way forward, well in a convoluted way anyways. Model in Max and/or Zbrush. Convert if need be in AutoCad, send to 3d printers, get my picture perfect master, send off and cast. The whole process will probably cost upwards of £50 but I think it'll be worth it.

On a different note I've found a good palette (thanks Matt) and will be hunting around for ...

Dwarf King's Hold - played some games

by Baragash on Tue Apr 26, 2011 10:53 pm
Played some games today with my little (well 25) bro - he's ex-GW, Space Crusade etc, so not like I'm playing a noob ;)

Rules greyness

Pile 'o Bones - we thought the language is unclear here. Initially it seems reassembling = 1 action, but then it goes on to say that it counts as a model that has had an action played on it.
a) this is redundant repetition, only Dwarf Follow-Ons can be played on a model that has already acted
b) this limits the model to 1 action (of reassembling) regardless of how many points the token was worth

I opted for a), see Scenario 1.

Break-offs & Free Strikes - would have liked some clarity on whether a model can Free Strike against a model leaving from it's Rear Arc.

I opted for "yes" by RAW.

Scenario 1

BA Blog 23rd Dec 2012, 2 Vindi's, 1 Whirlwind, 1 Baal Pred

by Cain Tiberius on Sun Dec 23, 2012 11:36 pm
Howdy folks

Ok so this last couple weeks I've gone a little tank crazy. I have four new additions for your viewing pleasure.

First up are two Vindicators. The first one was an eBay rescue. I'd already striped the paint best I could before this pic was taken. Unfortunately it didn't have any tracks, fortunately I had some IG tank tracks in my bits box (no idea why) and I was able to make them fit. I also had so of the old metal Vindicator parts. Add a couple choice pieces from eBay and some plasticard, and you have a MK1 Vindi :)
