Da Resin Deff Wagon by Cyroul & PeaceKraftHi there !!! We are so happy to present you our first, and not last I hope, collaborative project.
Some of you may know me thanks to this great forum, and particulary my passion for plastic card and ork stuff. Like most of you, I spend all my free time in my workshop crafting unique pieces. Some months ago, a question raised in me like a gork vision: what if I will be able to make copies of some part of my creations in order to save some time for other work ??? ... classik things like wheels, tracks, turrets, guns and more. Some of these items are used more than one time in a project and need to be identical, like wheels. That was the starting point of this project... Then I lurked on internet to know more about cast and mold for small models. I bought samples, tried, failed, tried again, again and again. Then I reached with a lot of work, time and money a point of quality that satisfied me. And the project could begin...
The Team : Cyroul and PeaceKraft
To tell the truth, I love produce a thing more than create it. Clearly, I needed a muse to create me some original sketches that I would be able to produce for ourself. So I put myself hunting for the right guy. I found him. Who? an awesome member of this forum of course, as passionate as me: PeaceKraft. You can easily find some of his very fine work on this forum. I don't need to say that he is a great drawer, i'm really happy to work with him, and for that, I would like to thank you !
Every single thing which is mold and showed here are designed by PeaceKraft and I, and created, molded and casted by me only. Clearly, my molds are only intended to cast stuff that I created. I've never used copyrighted stuff into creation that was molded.
The original concept
Here are the mains ideas :
- Ork look and feel
- Mix of modern and old school
- Wheels and tracks modular
- Small and large turret compatibility
- Maximum of accessories sprues like exhausts, glyphs, engine etc...
- Multipart model
- Playable in many possibilities : full shoot and/or transport only mode
- Rhino sized
To summarize, we wanted something modular, 28mm scaled, which can be played in a regular game of Warhammer 40k between a looted wagon and a battle wagon. So here it is! Let's show the rough concept. PeaceKraft did the 3D mock up with Google sketchup.
As you'll see, the real version will keep the same bulky shape... but with far more details of course
