Starting on the baneblade. You can find the templates here http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=170912

It has been a while since I had decided to build the Baneblade. The original designed that I picked, was Flarebaffle,s and then came along Eli Patoroch,s design. As usual, My build thread will be a bit different from the usual builds. There will be many parts that will be heavily laminated. The thickness of some parts and formers, will be about the thickness of chipboard. The strength will be able o withstand heavy use for table top gaming. In the beginning, I was planning on an interior for the Baneblade, but I opted out of that portion. There are too many interior levels and almost none of it would be able to be visible. I may make some interior detail for the turret but that will be for later to see how it will come out and if it is viable. Enjoy the thread now for the start of the show. Enjoy and see you all next posting.

Awesome. I did something similar for a semi-truck battle wagon that I'm working on. I used plasticard. How are you laminating the cutouts? Also, how easy it getting the rolled paper, for the transmission to have clean edges? I've alsays thought that would be a pain.

The templates are laminated with cardstock. Carstock is the same as the card used to make business cards. I also use on occasions the cardboard from cereal boxes. The cardboard from gift boxes work well also. The cylinders are made by using cross tip screwdrivers or other round objects and wrapping regular strips of bond paper around it to the approximate thickness. I may have to make a sequence on how I built the engine and transmission in a step by step. I built the powerplant and forgot to make a tutorial on how it was made. For me, it was rather easy, but then, it may be hard for others. Thanks for looking in and making your comment and request.

By the way, if you check out that website, the membership is free, but make sure that you make an introduction and read the rules. hat link given has a very big buffet on many of the imperial guard vehicles, to include many not made by forgeworld and GW. Enjoy and see you all next posting.

I assume that some of you are probably asking how I made the powerplant? I built it too fast and did not take photos of the build. I will probably make a short tutorial on it. The engine compartment was made using the one that is depicted on the GW Baneblade.

The rear of the engine compartment is made by heavily laminating the pieces and tying to imitate the GW references.

One of the most tedious, is the making of the rivets. I was originally going to use pin heads but gave up on that idea, too many holes to drill. The glue drops worked better and faster.

The side track sponsons were made a bit different as you can make out in the photos. the parts were broken up laminated and built up.

This session will be on the powerplant hatches. They will open and close and you can see the engine compartment. I place one of my imperial guards next to it, to show the size comparison. It is almost the same size as the GW version. Enjoy and see you next posting.

I am jumping around a bit in the parts building session and this is due to waiting for parts to set. So it looks like it is out of sequence but it will work out in the long run.

The plans have a fuel cell option, the old style and the updated version. I opted for the new version but the old style is much easier to do. The hatches are finished and they look alright. I would have added a bunch of wiring and fuel lines to the engine compartment but again, I decided to keep the compartment simple. Enjoy and see you all next posting.

Enjoy and they are all transferable to styrene if you do not wish to make them out of paper. For the wheels, you may have to make them out of pvc tubing.

The plans are basic, but it is the embellishments are what make it stick out.

Those hinge ideas come from my making them from copper/brass in my ship building models.


I am a little miffed, I had over 18 photos for editing on the track links and the idler wheels, somehow I erased them. I guess that I will have to re do them later when I start on the other side of the track skirt. Here is the photo update on the fuel cell bracket. As mentioned earlier, the single fuel cell is easier but the updated version does make the tank stand out.

As you can make out, there are a lot of fiddly small stuff to add to the details. One track is finished but the build sequence for it was somehow deleted by me by accident. I still have the other track unit to construct so I will do the build sequence for it then. In the meantime, enjoy and see you all next posting.

Here is the making of the road wheels. The front and rear wheels are larger and are built a bit different but that will come later, since they were also deleted with the track build. I will show later on when I get to the other side of the track build.

For the price of a bane blade, I can spend the savings on a battalion of imperial guards, Chaos army, special characters, bitz and stuff. The Baneblade is as far up as I will go. The titans take up too much room and hard to transport around. Remember, that the first baneblades were scratch built using Tony Cotrells templates in the Old White Dwarf magazines. The resin models came later and now we have the plastic one from GW. Anyhow, just wait around until the Chinese start to make them and they will drop the prize down. They just have not found this niche yet.

This is one of the reasons I do my build thread, if just one person has learned something from it, then it was worth the posting. For the rivets, The Baneblade is a rivet overkill monster. You need to go over the glue drops at least three times. By the time you get to the end of the rivets, the glue has already set at the begining and you can start over from the start right away. Enjoy.

So here is, another update on the Baneblade. This time, it is on the idler/drive wheels. The next posting will be on the track links. Until then, enjoy and see you all next posting.

Thanks for looking in and for your comment. The tracks are usually done using a jig to keep them straight and stopping them from curving "going banana". In my case, I forgo the jig and eyeballed it. For me it works, for others, they may have to do a jig to help them out.

I started to do some weathering of the hull and adding some insignias. The next two postings wil be on the side sponsons and the making of the heavy bolters.

Bring it to a GW store when it's done, and check to see if they even notice the difference!
