What?! We're not going to get WIP shots? >

Go to the Project Boards, make a thread, and keep that thread updated with WIP shots or I will sic my legion of Pirate Rubber Duckies on you... :P

Ahem.... Erm....

Sorry about that. I got a little excited. I'm pretty excited to see how this turns out. How vintage of stuff are we talking about, too? Like Rouge Trader era stuff or more recent?

Best of luck and remember: pictures,

The landraider is 2nd edition with the vindicator (50% metal) being earlier 3rd. I don't know how to get shots loaded on to TAU online right now and don't have the time since I'm going away in a couple of days. There will be pics all in time.

PS if someone can tell me how to load up pics like the ones Ducky used for his scratch stormboyz then I can load some up tomarrow.

Adding pictures to your posts:
1. Go to www.photobucket.com .
2. Create an account. It's good and free.
3. Transfer your pictures from your camera to your PC.
4. Make sure you're logged into Photobucket, if not, do so.
5. Navigate to 'My Album.' There's a little tab up on top for it.
6. To the right there's a little box for uploading images. Click browse, hunt down your file, and click 'Open.'
7. Repeat as necessary. There's a little button that'll allow you to upload more pictures if you need it. Click '+ add more.'
8. Click 'Upload.'

Yay! You've now uploaded your pictures to teh internet. To add them in a post is simple. Just copy and paste the IMG Code from your album into the Post Reply window. Pretty easy.

At the end of Part II of the tutorial, I did add some little clickable thumbs. To get those you select the images you want thumbs of on your album (as in check the little check boxes) and then click Generate HTML and IMG code. You want the one labeled as "IMG clickable thumbnails for message boards - recommended". Just copy and paste that into the Post Reply window as normal. I hope I explained that part ok. If it sounds a little odd, here's that part in pictures.









And the final result:



Hope that helps,

-Grandpa Ducky

One more thing, you should edit the size of the picture before you copy and paste the image onto TO. If you look at the pictures Ducky has on Photobucket, you will see a few options above each picture in blue font: move, tag, edit, share, delete. Choose edit, and change the size to the appropriate number. I think its labelled forum or something like that and is 640 X something. I also think it is the second from the bottom option.

That's an excellent point, Scoutfox. Thanks for reminding me.

Another way to change the size of your images is to set a maximum size while uploading. Right on top of the Upload box on the right there's a little thing that says "max image size: # x # (options)." If you click options and then choose a size, you can have Photobucket automatically resize ever image you upload. It's rather convenient. The images above are 640 x 480, which I find a nice size to use.

Keep in mind this is not painted at all. I got the models off a friend so I need to prime it still and actually paint it.







I have the battlewagon kitted out with:

Deffrolla
4 Big Shootas
2 Rokkits
1 Zappgun
1 Kannon or Killakannon
Grot Riggers

I know I cannot have all of that but this way I can play WYSIWYG for several variations.
Thanks for the help Ducky and Fox.

The devilfish engines just look tacked on, I'd get rid of them personally.

Well, you're definately thinking like an ork. ;D

They look too plain as-is though, they need...something. Glyphs, scratches, some makeshift repairs maybe.
