Here's a few pics of the core of a battlewagon I'll be making, and before you tell me to use plasticard, I'll inform you that the outside will be made from high quality cardboard.

The core looks good so far.

Cardboard/Heavy Cardstock does well. Just don't fight in humid environments!

My rule is more gubbins/bits/parts/rust/grots in dangerous situations/guns/guns/more guns!!!!

Oh and rivets!

I will be eagerly following your progress!

Oh its nowhere near done! :laughs manaically. It'll have plenty of gunz! But I didn't think about the weapon placement. A rokkit silo for a lobba, and many big shootas mounted on the platform. I don't know what to do with the sides though, hmmmm. EDIT: and about the 'umies gettin stuk, I'm havin a bits trade with an 'umie player soon. It'll actually have an 'umie on it! Hurhurhur

UPDATE!
I've armor plated the deffrolla, and gone through the painstaking job of gapfilling(I'm not even done yet!).

It seems I have an armored krumpany now, almost entirely unforseen.

And guess what I use to clear out the lid of my glue... Nothing less than a looted tyranid!

This is a Battelwagon, correct? It's looking a little small, honestly. I'd probably widen it a bit, and possibly make it slightly longer. Basically, make that main deck a bit bigger, so you can fit a decent sized gun, or some type of piloting area, or build up a tower/platform thing for gunz and boyz. Either that, or build some platforms on the sides for the boyz to ride along on. Other than the Deffrolla, what kind of upgrades were you thinking?
However, as we know, Gorkamorka favours the hopeless optimist and players who hold back on their shots should be jeered loudly.

If only i didn't have to make a $30 order to ship internationally, then pay $15 to ship, then pay twice as much to change to my currency, I'd do it. ;) The only place I've found that has value for $ and good shipping prices is here, which requires a minimum purchase of $30 for international shipping.
Also, I should probarbly stop building vehicles. I have more tanks than boyz!

Where're you shopping from, the US? There's plenty of online stockists over there. Try searching for "sheet styrene".

looking good, except for the fact that moisture would ruin its day. for plasticard try ebay, theres a few good aussie shops that sell styrene and ships to new zealand cheap. or you could try ice cream containers, plastic signs and the like. their should be a few hobby shops that sell model railway and stuff, just ask them for sheet styrene.

Thats one wicked 'ard krumpany ya got. ONce you do get enough teef to get your hands on some good materials you'll be crankin out top notch stuff. I shop there too. if you ever do get the teef to make a purchase you should get a couple of odds & ends bags. theyre all different sizes & thicknesses as well as square tubing & piping. Keep up the good work. It would nice to see some paint on these but im sure theyd warp or something. Maybe some spray paint & simple highlights might not be too bad.

I think I'll just save up 80 NZD and suck it up, at least I'll have somewhere around 5 kgs of plasticard, and a kilometre of tubing :eek
Well, This project is not going to just stop like so many others have. I have a new technique for making rivets. Just put a splodge of glue on some newspaper, take a tiny bit on a fine paintbrush, and put it where the rivet will go. But make them too big, they shrink when drying. :yes
Posted Image
Posted Image
Then just glue it on.
Posted Image
I have to hold it up to the light for them to be visible, as the glue dries clear. Painting will sort that out though.
Posted Image

I've detailed the sides now as well.

E but with its own sponson to that it sits vertically. if its a claw it wont hafta be too big to reach something on the ground & if its a wrecking ball itll only bounce against the sides & not over the top whackin any boys in da head, though that would be funny
