More Scratch Built stuff! Image heavy, C&C welcome!

Post  fulange on Fri Apr 05, 2013 8:53 am

I decided to get a bit more ambitious with my builds. So I'm working on an IG army now, kind of a chimera spam list. This is my first attempt at a chimera scratch build out of cardboard:
Step 1:

I printed out the schematics and started cutting stuff out

Step 2:

Started the assembly with the track parts.

Step 3:

Got a few parts together now, really starting to get somewhere

Step 4:

I discovered that Elmer's Paper glue (the white stuff from 3rd grade... crude jokes aside) works really well. When it cures, its like a rock!

Step 5:

Took the time to do a little bit of detail work, i think its worth it, really finishes up the treads nicely. But to be honest, I just about went insane doing this tiny [stuff], they kept moving around! thats why they aren't straight. Next time, perhaps Ill try to figure out some way to align them...

Assembled:

I still want to do some touches, and polish it up a bit. I plan to magnetize the turret (so i can swap from multi-lazer to hydra to devil dog ect), and I'll probably go with perminant markers for the pain job (again lol), but I dont yet know what paint scheme Im going with...

So whatchall think? any tips to improve?

From an Ork perspective, it'll never work unless you paint it red.

I have actually been working on that... although I have learned that its best to pain before i assemble...



but i figured a touch of red wasnt a bad idea, here is my rough draft...
