I started to put rivets and other small detail onto the Leman Russ:

The rivets were made with a rivet mould from greenstuffworld .

Next will be more detailing of the tracks and the sides of the tank so many more rivets to add.

Further progress with the ‘build something’ contest 2018

I did some more work on the Leman Russ tank. The tank will be without turret as it will be used as a rolling stage for a Ork Rock band. So instead of the turret there will be a stage complete with speakers etc. I added some more detail to the tank . Next step will be adding the tracks and the track guards.

Any comments welcome.

Start of my entry to the build something contest on Lead adventure forum

I will participate in the build something contest over on Lead adventure forum. You can find the contest here. Feel free to vote once the voting commences .

My entry will be a Ork Goff Rock band for my Ork Warhammer 40000 army. They will get a moving stage in the form of a looted Leman Russ tank. The tank will be a scratch build version to the so called Ruhr pattern. A pattern of Leman Russ as build on the forge world Ruhr in the Germania sector.

I used the paper templates of Patrochloch which you can find here. Here is an example of a printed out template:

The space marine is there to compare scale. I won’t build the Leman Russ out of paper though. To make it more resilient for the battlefield I will use extruded Polystyrene. Like I did with my Thunderhawk which you can find here.

Here are pictures of the three main parts before cutting with the hot wire cutter and after basic assembly with a hot glue gun:

More to follow in the next days and weeks.

Perry Miniatures plastic Zulu warriors

The Zulu are a Bantu ethnic group of Southern Africa and the largest ethnic group in South Africa, with an estimated 10–12 million people living mainly in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. Small numbers also live in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique. The Zulu were originally a major clan in what is today Northern KwaZulu-Natal, founded ca. 1709 by Zulu kaMalandela. In the Nguni languages, iZulu means heaven, or weather.. according to  At that time, the area was occupied by many large Nguni communities and clans (also called isizwe=nation, people or isibongo=clan or family name). Nguni communities had migrated down Africa’s east coast over centuries, as part of the Bantu migrations probably arriving in what is now South Africa in about the 9th century.
