It appears that the 30% Off sale is still ongoing; make sure you take advantage of this generous offer!

I have had a blast assembled some custom six-wheeled APC similar to the M8 Greyhound, using a variety of resin bits!

Chapterhouse Studios Wheeled Chimera Kit, Zinge Industries Firing Port Hatch Covers, and three products from Models and Minis;
their Chimera Hazardous Engine Filter Hatch, Chimera Rear Hatch Conversion, and Agrius Light Turret Set.

My intention was to provide enough transportation for my Storm Trooper Strike Force, now called Tempestus Scions.
These would be fielded as Taurox Prime armoured transports with magnetixed weapon options, so far I have five assembled :



Nice work! You might have noticed I'm a fan of the chapter house kit. With chapter house gone I haven't looked to see if they were still floating around for sale.

Just an FYI, the CHS kit is meant to assemble so that the front edge of the hull and the leading edge of the side plates line up, with the side plates extending past the rear of the tank. Unfortunately the kit was designed just before GW redid the chimera and that lead to alignment issues.

I forget the name of the guy from chapter house, but I think when he cut the notches for the hull to fit into the sides he lined up the cuts that way. I really loved your work and remember looking at the pictures you had posted on Dakka to figure out how the front was supposed to line up. The kits I purchased were from before he had made the cuts and had two guide lines where he was thinking of cutting the notch. We had talked on the phone about which notch to cut but when it came time to build it I chose the guide line that made the front square up, then cut up the bottom hull piece to fit the way I wanted. I didn't notice that you had intended the back to overhang. Doh!

So when are you next going to design some kick butt 40k improvement kit?
