I got a request to post my finished models and here is the first installment of them. All of the vehicles are scratchbuilt and also made from plans. They are made from card stock and laminated. I have build threads here on most of them, and how I constructed them. In this first installment, I have the prototype of my Super Chimera before GW came out withtheir version. The plans for the chimera are in this forum over at my Warhammer armor and things. The motorcycle was scratch built using the GW model as a reference and the Sentinel is from plans found over at zealot.com in the warhammer section under armorman's thread. Enjoy and I will be back with more. attached is a photo of all that I have up till now and I will be adding to it.

Those are awesome. Love the papercraft DIY stuff. Really sticks it to GW's price hikes. As long as you don't turn around, produce and sell the buggers, then good on ya!

Thanks for the comments guys. The price is what made me start to DIY. One of the first models was the Baneblade using the templates from White Dwarf a long time ago. In fact, the old rules book used to have a section for DIY models and how to apportion the points for them. White Dwarf use to have many ideas and templates for making terrain and buildings. There is a precedent for scratch builds in 40K and Warhammer.

These first models are prototypes and they were not painted. The reason for this, is to show that they are made from paper card stock. Some people cannot believe that they are made of paper so I do this purpose. "PAPER, IT IS JUST NOT FOR WRITING ANYMORE."

Here is the next batch of photos. These were made from templates found over at Zealot.com, with the exception of the Eldar Jet bike. The bike was a small challenge, in making the curvature of the frontal beaked hood. On the Tau flyer, it is made from paper but the compound curves were enhance by using wall spackling and smoothed to make the curves. In the Tau vehicle, I repainted it and did the markings free hand. On the Eldar jet bike, I used decals from the GW kit and some free hand. There is one more vehicle, skimmer to go, which I will post later after editing the photo. Again, all of these have a build thread here on how I made them. The Vulture is heavily modified paper model and is one of my early attempts at making Warhammer40K vehicles. Enjoy and see you all next posting.

There are some models that are no longer mine and I will not be able to display, such as the Lightning and the Thunderbolt but you can check them out in my threads here.

Check out Zealot.com, browse around and you will be amazed what you can actually do. Friendly people who can help you along the way.

Thanks every one of you guys for youe comments. here are a few more models, A landspeeder from downloaded plans at Zealot, A gyrocopter which I made using the idea of Little Nellie from James Bond movie. (The Roger Moore days). The last is a meddley of the last models. Will be back soon with more. Enjoy and see you all around the forum.

If they're anything like mine they're just as sturdy (or nearly) as the 'real' thing! In some instances, even more-so.

Thank you for your comment. Almost all of these finished models have a build thread as to how I build them here at DakkaDakka. Just click on my avatar and check all post made by me.

All of my Warhammer models are heavily laminated with card stock, That is a paper about the thickness of a business card or the thickness of a vanilla folder. They will withstand heavy usage for the tabletop wargaming. An added bonus, is that they are also easy to repair and white glue is not as toxic as plastic cement or super glue, and much cheaper for a bottle of Elmers white glue.


Here are a few more photos for your enjoyment. The motorcycle and side car are scratchbuild and made along the lines of a world war 2, German side car unit. The figures are GW cut to fit the vehicle. The dreadnaught is my first attempt in making one. This one is very fragile at the swivel hip joint and the lower foot connector. The upper body is very heavy which is the reason for the week hip and leg joints. The fix for this problem is to glue the whole joints more often and not make the heavy torso moveable. Enjoy and more to come.

Maybe GW should lower the cost of their plastic minis. They sure make playing a bit difficult with the changing of the codexe's.
As soon as you get the rules down, along comes the next change. When i started playing, the humans had a large disadvantage against the alien races, especially the Eldar. I do not play as much any more but I still like to build and design 40K vehicles and stuff. As I keep mentioning, Over a Zealot.com. There is this designer that has made almost all of the imperial army vehicles and many that are not in production but mentioned in the Warhammer universe. You can find them over there under Armormans thread and you can download them for free. There is a wealth of information and reference on how to make the paper models.

Here are a couple more of my vehicles, the Jet bike and my version of a manned walker for the Space marines.

The walker was an earlier attempt to make a walker for the Marines. It was originally going to be a support flyer and I added the legs to it. I am glad that you like my version of the Space Marine jet bike.


Here are a few more models made from card stock, The Armageddon Sentinel, The BSG Raptor and the Dropship from ALIENS with interchangeable missile pods and the APC. Enjoy and see you all next posting.

Thank you for your comments. There is more to come. There are a bunch of models that will not be displayed, since I have given them away to family and friends as gifts. Missing, will be three versions of the BSG Vipers, A BSG hangar bay diorama, The BSG Stealth Star, Star Trek Danube class Shuttle Rubicon, The Thunderbolt, Lightning, Chimera, another better looking Dreadnaught, Leman Russ. Even though these are missing from my inventory, there will be others. Here are some more mechs for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy and see you all next posting.

You can find the dropship here as well as the APC and some other goodies as well. The dropship comes in a mini size, hard to do if you have fat fingers. There is a lager version, which I printed in landscape and it came out about 1/72 scale. The APC also comes in a mini size and a 1/35 scale. http://aliens.humlak.cz/aliens/aliens_papirove_modely_gb.htm enjoy and hope to see your build version.

Other than some horse drawn coaches and civil war pieces, and planes, this is it for now, the Batman returns Tumbler. And yes, other than the wooden axle to hold the very heavy laminated wheels it is made out of paper (card stock) Enjoy and see you all soon
