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.

Welcome in 2018

So this is the first post in 2018. The year 2017 wasn’t the best one for my Blog and hobby as I didn’t have as much time as the years before for painting , modeling and gaming. I could only attend the convention in Antwerp because of time constrains. I hope this will be better again in 2018. The hotel for Salute in London is already booked.

Now the first project this year to be started new is a Ork Goff Rock band for my Ork Warhammer 40000 army. I got the old metal citadel miniatures for x mas from my son:

They will get a moving stage in the form of a looted Leman Russ tank . This will be part of the 2018 build something contest over on Lead Adventure Forum. You can follow that contest here.

I will post pictures of the build here ,too.
