Sorry it's not the cleanest build, started at 11pm and was done at 3am. Note for the next one I'm leaving the little remove brace on until it's fully assembled.

Had my first B+S order arrive. Fantastic stuff.

The new tank back plates are a dream, especially with the extra armour kit that just so happens to fit a Leman Russ. I'd kill for some sort of extra armour for the front of the tank now, maybe with an armoured drivers hatch or something.

It's funny you should mention that. I just happen to have something at the printers you may like....

I also have this old school project going on at the shop. Any guesses what it is?

I've been slowly working on an Ork looted tank army.

Your stuff made the process so much easier.

I outfitted 4 Leman Russ tanks with main turret and gun, sponsons with weapons, fuel tanks and engines, and the little detail set. Everything was well cast and went together without issue.

I ordered more sponsons and engines for some Macharius tanks.

If I build any more Russes, I will definitely try out the tracks too.

An chance of orky plasma or lascanon for sponsons?

Nice! I'd love to see pics when you get them done

Yes, an Orky laser cannon and plasma cannon are on the list of things to do. I was just holding off until I got a feel of how this line of products was going to do.

Ordered mainly weapons in the past, decided to order the Kolosus turret (KV2 style) arrived, had a play around with some weapons I had lying around.
Very versatile turret for Imperial guard would recommend for Hydra( think Shilka's cruder cousin), Wyvern, any russ (heavy assault duty, hell yeah KV2 style), Basilisk or Griffon (shell'em in style).

Mine mounts autocannons or quad mortars(made by cutting down Blood and Skulls auto cannons where the barrel begins to taper if you're looking for a fast-swap wyvren). Hasn't even got a chassis yet, or even a hatch :(


Spoiler:

bit of a rough WIP atm but hatch aside its all there


Now with added Wyvern

If the GS cult rock drill is a piece of standard imperial mining kit why does it have 3 handles?

Nice work!

Yes I do need to work on my own chassis, but I do have lots of hatches already https://www.ebay.com/str/bloodandskullsindustry/Hatches/_i.html?_storecat=20009426012

Would the Crusader style light tank turret MK 2 designed to fit into the hull of a baneblade? I own neither at this point but at a preliminary level it would appear too long, but it looks real nice

dis one

The MKII Light Turret won't fit in the Baneblade hull but it is design to work with the sponsons. It also makes a great razorback turret.

Darn you. I was looking for a 6x6 conversion kit for making wheeled Razorbacks. I ended up using your 8x8 kit, now this comes out. :( oh well, time to buy another.

That new sponson set is huge. for fitting onto land battleships; to provide broadside capability!

Machinator, have you considered making spotlight and targeters/optics that are magnetisable to fit your sponsons and turrets?

The Omega Multi-Weapon Sponson set is now available! As for spotlights I do have one (and it actually works!) but optics would be a great addition too.

Keep on keeping on! I thought your 8xwheel kit was one of the best wheeled Chimera options. Now this!

How's those tank front plates coming?

Any idea how hard it would be to fit one of those rear plates onto a chimera? I want to do the 'chime-russ' thing and would like to get rid of the back hatch.

It shouldn't be too difficult. The width is about the same, you'd just need some plasticard to fill in the height.
