I've got Templates from late 1st / early 2nd Edition... but they don't look good.

I guess Kin7777 would be the best man to talk to about that. He just scratch-built his own Baneblade. It's on display in the showcase forum; come see.

Hey Wargamer. Could you post those templates anyway? For the sake of prosterity if nothing else...

Indeed, I just got IA1 and fell in love with the shadowsord (Big.... Gun.....) (sorry the baneblade just doesn't suit me, what with a silly 24" range cannon in the hull... I'd rather another battlecannon or save the the points and toss in some more bolters...) I think I can whip one up with the drawings in IA1 but I need to get an idea of size, since the quoted scale for 28mm or Heroic 25mm guys ranges from 1:55 to 1:70, a big difference on a tank like that.

I Have templates for the new style shadowsword that forge world uses. These can also be used to work with scratch building the baneblade. If you want the templates just email me at..
