EDIT: PAINTED PICTURES NOW AVAILABLE!!
I have made mention of these LR's in other threads around WarSeer, but here they are in all their "glory".
I have a few WIP shots, but not from the beginning. I will try to explain what I did as I got through the pictures. I am not putting this into a log, as once I have them painted, that is it, so really there will only be one more update beyond the first ones.
I found these templates many years ago in the internet, and well, I can't find them any more... so I guess GW talked to the individual who owned the website.
Box Board (much like cereal boxes, but a bit thicker without any printing on it, got free from my local gaming store)
Foam Core (received free after my previous employer had a conference in town and it was all going to be thrown out)
Pins (Bought from store for $2.50CDN)
Glue Stick (Bought from store for $2.50 for two)
GW Bitz (Traded most with spikyjames [two sets of LR Lascannons, and heavy bolters], 1 set LR Lascannons and heavy bolters from my Crusader, rest from random stuff from bitz box)
GW Rounded Sprue (used as the lumps on the tracks)
So, in the end I think they cost me a total of $10CDN plus lots and lots of time. Here are some WIP shots:
This shows the progression of building up the sides. I cut out each template from normal white paper. These were then glued on with the glue stick to the box board/foam core, and cut out again. Lots of glue and weight were needed to have everything sit flat.
The most annoying part of the whole thing. To make sure that each of the folds were straight, I scored the surface of the box board to make sure the folds were done right.
Now 3D, one with tracks attached.
Group shot with no details.
