Hey there Dakka.

Couple of years ago I started a similair thread featuring scratchbuilt tanks.
That project failed because my plasticcard skills werent good enough for my taste.

2 years later, plasticcard skills improved, I picked up the project. Got some inspiration from various people around the webs, especially WIP forum, great builds there.

Enough talk and on with the pictures.

This is a chimera based of the WW2 russian KV1 tank:















And next to these scratchbuilt tanks I wanted something else that involved a lot of conversion possibilities.
Seeing that there is only 1 faction for Ogryns (Cadians) I want to make Vostroyan themed ogryns of plastic ogres.

Started on the guns. I sticked with the original concept:



So thats it for now. I'm making more chimera's at he moment, including a moderate chimmy for the Ogryns.
After that its time for Leman Russes, Ragnarok Pattern!

Also Converted Veterans using several kits and bits.

Hope you like it so far. C&C welcome.

Develain.

You know, up until that last pic of tanks (2nd to last pic), I was thinking "Meh, scratch built tanks to save money" then BOOM, awesome tank that is unique, but still totally 40k. I'd love one of those for a command tank in a standard IG army.

Chimera with WW2 designs?

And what about your vostroyans. will you use standard GW or will you convert from other boxsets?

Thanks. I am not going to,
Going to make 2 more of the first one. Then it's on to the Leman Russes. 3 probably, maybe even 4 Depends on if I make a vendetta or not.

Got some Sentinels to try out the painting scheme I have planned for these as well.

Keep an eye out for this log next couple of months! Clones are Done, Valstroyans are in!

Great job on the Imperial vehicles. Check out http://www.zealot.com/ there are other sites as well that deal with paper-cardstock models also. Over at zealot, search for the warhammer 40k threads and look for armormans thread. There is an armory of all the imperial vehicles for you to choose from as well as tau, chaos and a few eldars. The majority of these and yours, can also be transferred over to styrene. Ay Zealot you have to wait a while before you can access the free download but at amormans thread, you can download instantly through depositfiles. Enjoy and hope to see some more of your stuff.

Moving on.

Chimera with Track guards:
As you can see there is a rider on it. It's a Valhallan one!



I am currently painting some Valhallans that I purchased from Ebay, in Vostroyan colors.
So I guess you can call em Valstroyans. When I finish some you will see them here.

Amazing tanks here, mate! Looking forward to seeing some paint! Standard Vosty colors?

Got some models of of Ebay:

Valhallan Officer, will be Lucas Bastogne in the game:



Commissar, with sunglasses: Deal with it.



Tank Commander for a Chimmy: This turret is for the last Chimera I am finishing currently (need more plasticstrip to finish the tracks).



Also have the Commissar tank commander. He will be riding a Leman Russ though, more on that later..

Haven't gotten an update yet for the painted Valstroyans.
Will finish some of those foot-troopers soon.

Cheers.

Incredible work dude, I'm very jealous of your building skills- I'm still not as good as I want and this thread proves that I'm found wanting!

Jesus develain, these Kv1s are astounding. Truely if I could ever get a sratchbuild looking as good as that I would be incredibly happy.

This thread is going in the exact same direction as my guard, so I will be watching intently to get pointers!

(You could make T34s for sentinels....(not that it makes much sense...in fact, scratch that, but I still would like to see your take on a T34.))

p.s. this thread has been subscribed to, I almost missed it altogether!


p.s.s.s.s. By the way how did you make your tracks? I would be forever indebted to you if you could just describe it briefly or do a mini tutorial. The rest of this totally beyond me, but If I could just make the tracks I would be happy.

I think it is safe to say that your plasticard skills are now up to thejob. Astounding work there. Are the track links individually made?
