Default A tutorial on how to make miniature tanks



Start yourself off with this pieace of bitz. What we got here, is the followin' gubbinz;
-The main hull for the Wartrakk without the Driver part, and without any gunz
-the Trakk... trakks?
-an empty bottle of games workshop super glue with the top pieace removed and the screw-formed markings cut away (I did'nt notice this till later, so do this the first you do when preparing)
-dreadnought base (60mm round base IIRC)
-3 RnF human sized bases (20mm square base)



Now, the first thing to do is putting a 20mm base in the furthermost area where you would have the gun or whatever.



Continue this step with the other two bases.



Stomp this up on your pare of trakks.



And then slap the whole thing onto a 60mm base



And now the yay part, add the super glue bottle. Woaah! Now its a tank turrent! wootness!



Watch out for posing it to much away from the front or you´ll show the nasty, evil little hole for the original gun for the trakk. Oh noes!



So there we got a better pose for the turret, really mean huh!







And there is a 4-way view on the finnished product. Now go spray this and start paint!







Heres my own Minitank WIP that im eventually gonna do a Speedfreak buggy list out of!

If this is in the wrong forum please move, but as its an tutorial I don't really see why it shouldn't be here.

The IBM (mage ^^)(no offence, just jk) thanks for sticking it its a nice topic.


Warvolt-> dude thats just two words. Really cool. I like it a lot. I have a small request to you though I totally like the tank Idea, but there is lots of parts that has to be bought. May be (hey dude I'm just asking ) you can try to make tank of scrap only? Because I presume you got some orc stuff that was built from scrap. (May be I'm wrong either way, mean no offence)

Anyway, just a really NICE tank. (Zero sarcasm hear)

Im sorry, but after some talk over at the waaagh. ive decided to redo the tank, and make a new tutorial as soon as I get new bitz and plasticard. But by all means keep the current on pinned, some might still get inspiried of it. Mine looks like this right now (quick shots)

Any which way Warvolt, it's a cheap way to make Cyclopses, which are bombs with tank tracks strapped on them.

Thats the whole point, its a grot tank. If you don't like the greenskin charm on stuff so be it. But this is exactly the way ive immagined grot stuff. Its supposed to look silly, silly.
