The Cunnin' Plan -
Okay, so want to use my FW Baneblade as a battle wagon. The BB took a bad hit during my most recent moves, and was pretty tore up. Already fixed the track, and now to make it so that the Nobz can ride into the thick of it with the Boss in his Big Bad 'Urty Trukk
Mock up template
Wire mesh (for dry wall patching)
Assorted parts used
Side 1 completed (sort of)
A better look at side 1
Both sides done (sort of)
havok brought up a good point about transportability. This is already a large model. Larger than most production pieces by GW. If i hard mount the platforms, it makes this thing downright unGodly to carry around to game. Plan is to rig up a magnetic mount to allow me to add and remove these at will.
As for the "sort of" part of the descriptions, no self respecting Ork would ride into combat on a vehicle not suitably decorated. I have an assortment of Space Marine icon plaques, random Chaos bits, a few Tau pieces, etc to mount before I can call it done. However, first things, i have to make sure the armor is secured with some "extra wotnots" and rivets! I will try to scrounge up some plasticard rods to make some tubing out of, and then cut some plasticard strips to use as rivet plates. This should go over pretty well on Saturday at Empire, seeing as how I should get to drop it on the table for a game or two!
