Custom Tank

Well it is a new year so time for a new post.

I will be eventually be going through the earlier posts of the templates to correct English names and confirm links are still active, but for now I am too busy with things going on in my personal life to do that at the moment.

Anyway, I came across this web page awhile back and I would personally like to try to make this:

I would like to make it without the rounded front using plastic card to make an angular front. Also I would like to add more details to the back. I don't think it would need the side door hatches (like in his finished photo), or the extra long track guards.I will post pics if I ever finish the project.

For those that are not familiar with the 1:35 models out there, they seem to fit in well with GW's Warhammer 40k miniatures, once you add bigger looking weapons. Also keep in mind most of those tanks will probably have to count as super heavies due to there size.

Reaver Monster Titan

So today I am watching Macross Frontier (a link for those who don't know what it is) and I keep thinking about my idea of making the Monster mecha from it into a Reaver titan. It is not the most grim dark mecha of the anime realm that could be used for 40K. But it definitely makes up for it with enough firepower and size for it to be used. Here is a link to a wikia article for those of you who don't know what the Monster is:

After scouring the web for the original paper model I had found years ago, I was unable to find the original website, but I did manage to locate the template on at the following link:

I believe the model might be too small at its current size so I plan to make a sample model to test it out and check the scale and them make the real thing at the proper scale. I really hope to have this model go from concept to reality quickly, but I really need to finish my War Hound first.

Now I do realize the weapon load out is kind wrong for a Reaver, since of course the Reaver typically has a large missile launcher on top. So I was thinking of just stating the the arms are the missile launchers instead and the top cannons are the normal gun cannons, thus functionally by the rules it would act the same as a Reaver Titan.

Tau Titan

Sorry for the extremely long delay in posting, but other things have been taking up too much of my time (funny how life can sometimes get in the way). Anyway here is a post I intended to post a long time ago.

Here is a unique titan I found on ebay a while back:

In the coming future I plan to build one myself since these models don't cost too much on ebay. The model is a Gundam Serpent 1/100 scale from the movie Gundam Wing: Endless Walts.

Since I know this blog post will last longer than the Ebay listing here is what the item description said:

"Up for auction is a completely built, painted, and detailed model of a 1/100 scale Gundam Serpent Custom, which I built in 2010 for use as a Tau Titan in Warhammer 40,000 Apocalypse games.  However, I find myself with less and less time to play Warhammer these days.  The titan has only seen battle once, and has been sitting on my shelf ever since.   

This is NOT a toy—it is a highly detailed 200-piece model from Japan, having been professionally built by me.  Gundam kits are somewhat difficult to build.  This kit cost me nearly $50. For a better idea of this model’s Gundam background, see this link:

The model is completely articulated, with arms, hands, and legs that move to create a variety of poses, and the model can be armed with a variety of weapons, including heavy burst cannons and a bazooka-style heavy rail gun. The model took over 20 hours to build and paint.  The model has been painted in the same white & blue/grey paint scheme that matches the rest of my Tau army, but I’m sure it can fit with many others.  The panel lines on the titan are hand-drawn using a paint pen, and the Tau insignia are decals from Forge World in the UK.  See the photos of the titan in comparison to several of my other Tau models.  The titan is a pretty formidable model, and really fits in well with a Tau army because it looks just like a giant crisis suit.  The titan stands about 10 inches high.

Using Games Workshop’s Vehicle Design Rules, I created the titan, calling it a Tiger Shark.  The stats for the titan are as follows:


        Points    WS    BS    S    Fnt.    Side    Rear    I    A

Tiger Shark    280    4    4    10    14    13    12    4    2

§          war machine, walker, 2 structure points

§          twin-linked heavy burst cannons (60”, H4, S7, AP4)

§          2 missile pods

§          heavy rail gun (96”, D, AP2, Heavy 1, primary weapon, submunition—S7 AP3 7” blast)

Winning bidders in the U.S. to pay $9 USPS Priority Mail Shipping with delivery confirmation and insurance.  Shipping to Canada will be $14 (need to pay customs fees, insurance, etc.).  I will welcome bids from Australia and Western Europe (shipping costs will vary); I will not ship to Italy or Eastern Europe.

Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions.  Please see my feedback—I’m a straight shooter and make it a point to have every transaction come out flawlessly.  Thanks for looking at my auction, and please see the other auction I have for a custom Tau Super Heavy Tank, which I also built for use in Warhammer 40K Apocalypse games."

I purchased the model on ebay for a lot less than $50 with shipping. I will start building this model once I get
a few other Tau kits.

Also keep the spirit of the Tau going here are links to a few Tau Paper Hammer models:

Tau Devilfish: 2009


Tau Flats among other flats:

(Edit: Since megupload is dead I updated the link to the Tau flats to a link that does work, but the quality of the templates are greatly reduced. I will post a better link when I find one.)

Later on I will go through these templates and add the proper English names to them and confirm that the links work.It has been realized by myself and others that Eli's templates are designed for an A4 paper and not the US standard letter, you could rescale it smaller so that it will fit. I don't recommend doing that since it will make the model smaller than it should be. The other two solutions are to redo the templates or to print them on legal paper.

StormHammer Progress Part 1

Normally I would do a step by step guide, but I am far enough along to make it too late for that. So I am doing a general guide on doing any scratch build of a BaneBlade class tank.

I will be using the StormHammer template made by: Steve Tid as the base, template can be found here or here. The template is lacking in detail and many of the guide lines that should have been added to the template to guide you on how the parts are to line up. It is also lacking any form of details so I am using  jsvironfurnace's BainBlade template for general details, templates found here or here. For additional details I use Patoroch's baneblade template (as of right now I have yet to print his, but I already know I am going to use it for the barrels and perhaps the turret). His templates for the bainblade is in two parts (one for the baise and is interchangeable for tops for other variants which is the other part). They can be found here and here.

Because of the lack of tabs on the template I draw them on so that way I am less likely to cut them off or just forget about them. I just sketch them on and I don't cut right on that sketched line.

I also put waights in all the paperhammer 40k items because for me it give a better feel to the game, not to mention the last thing I want is for there to be a strong breaze to go across the table and move all my paper craft tanks. What I use is used hardware that I get from work that would otherwise be thrown out and I just glue them in place. If you are not lucky enough to have a situation like that, any type of scrap that has weight to it will work.

For the wheels on the tracks I have gotten one off of a 1/35 tank model for the main wheels.I use sculpey for the the mold and the mold release is the baby powder or talcum powder.
