    Tommygun's Backwater Forgeworld

    I have several projects in the works right now. I thought I might combine them into one log. First up is a heavy tank. Here is my attempt at a Macharius tank. I'm using a Banblade main hull and turret and the track assembly from a Land Raider. This version is armed with a vulcan auto cannon, but the barrels are removable, so I can change the armament. I started this tank 6 months ago but, put it aside until I saw Vemetic's tank log. So this is what I have and what I want it to be.

    Here are more views of the tank. It is mostly assemble, but I have a lot more detailing to do.

    Thumbs up Re: Tommygum's Backwater Forgeworld

    Thats really impressive! I'm subscribing to this!

    Does it come apart? I mean, can we see more pics of what you did to the land raider tread assembly and some close ups of your scratch built plating?

    Very cool!

    Re: Tommygum's Backwater Forgeworld

    I had some trouble with the land raider's track assembly. If I had to do it over again I might scratch build them. Basically I cut them in half and cut the track covers off the main hull. I added a 2 1/2 in.(63mm) spacer to the tracks. This caused a problem though, as this made the tank a little longer and taller than a Beneblade. So I rebuilt the tracks. I reduced the spacer on the tracks to 1 1/2 in. (38mm). Then cut them in half the long way to cut out 3/4 in. (19mm) out of the middle to reduce the hight. Basically you are cutting the tracks into four quarters, which is not easy. It might be easier scratch building them and make your own track links or buy some tank links off of some modeling web site. I will show you some of the early pictures before I rebuilt the tracks, so you can see the process. The last picture is after I rebuilt it. I will try and get better close up of the armor later.

    Re: Tommygun's Backwater Forgeworld

    Here are some close up pictures of the armor plating. I used Grandt Line hex bolts (#81) and round rivets (#156) on most areas. The plastic armor plates help cover the holes on the land raider tracks. If you plan on doing this remember to mount the tracks backwards relative to the original land raider. I also included a picture of the turret mount. On the original Baneblade, the turret seats off to one side and the Macharius tank's turret is in the middle. I added the sheet of plastic so I could remount the turret.

    Re: Tommygun's Backwater Forgeworld

    I think I'm done detailing this guy. I'll probable add a heavy stubber to the commander's hatch, but that's it. The barrels on my vulcan are a bit longer than the original, but I wanted to exaggerate them some because I think they are the best feature of this tank design. I think I'll paint it green like the Forge World one with a lot of weathering. Later I will make different barrels for it for different armament load outs. I have already started a titan project and I'll post pictures of what I have after I paint the tank. Here is also a link to my Aquila Lander project.http://warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=123104

    Re: Tommygum's Backwater Forgeworld

    I have finally painted the tank. I like to make my models well weathered. I think it gives them more character. I forgot to paint the tank commander, so he is missing in the finished photos. My next project is a Warhound Titan, I'll post pictures

    I think the barrels need some wear and tear... burn marks and such. That would really make this tank osome.

    While I cannot knock the build, skill or stamina, would it not have been better to buy one??
    Reason- Original Macharius £90
    baneblade £60
    Landraider £35
    spending hours adding rivets and gouging plasticard
    £Priceless

    Sorry, bit mean- but great build none the less!

    Yes, I think you are right. I have some testors scorched titanium I could use on the barrels. I also have some black weathering powders as well.

    I bought the baneblade and landraider parts as bits from the warstore. I spent $80 US vs. $180. If I did it again, I would scratch build the track assemble and not use the landraider. This way, it would cost about $50 to build one. As far as time spent, it took me one week to build. The rivets only took an hour, so time is not a big deal.

    Re: Tommygun's Backwater Forgeworld

    And here it is. My Warhound Titan! Victory starts with De-Feet.
    My titan will be running. One foot will be up in the air and not touching the ground. But so that the titan model will not fall over, I need to support the foot. I will let the foot rest on a brick wall. I am going to make it look like the foot is bursting through the wall as it is running by it.

    Re: Tommygum's Backwater Forgeworld

    Next up, I have the legs done. You can see how one of the legs is bent. This is the leg that the foot will be resting/bursting through the wall as it is running. You might notice the bottom of the foot of this leg, that I added a tread pattern to it. I wanted more detail than just a plain flat surface. I keep feeling the legs need more details, like more bolts or scoring more panel lines on to the plastic. I'm not sure

    Small update here. Completed the waist and the head. The head may not look that big of a deal, but it was the hardest part of this build! There is just a lot of cutting to put it together.

    Re: Tommygum's Backwater Forgeworld

    Now we have a torso! I'm getting closer! Next will be the weapons, then the base for the titan and finally assembly and painting. I'm still not sure of how I will paint it. May be a three tone gray splinter camouflage? Does anyone know a good reference source for the different titan units and their coloring?
