Default Space Marine Quad Bike

All credit goes to Binary - who gave me permission to repost his quad bike tutorial.

Since I posted this in my white scars thread people have been clamouring for a tutorial, and now that I (finally) have the parts I thought I’d document it stage by stage.




Here’s what you need:



1x complete space marine bike
1x front mudguard from a marine bike
2x sentinel legs
1x Teleport homer
2x Ravenwing searchlight*
1x vehicle searchlight
1x Ravenwing sensor mount
1x landspeeder weapon (this tutorial will have just the multi-melta, because that’s what I field, but will work just as well with the heavy bolter)


First cut off and trim the mudguards, then glue together the bike halves and attach the handlebars and footplate.





Then cut off the exhaust (red areas) as this is where the rear wheels will attach.





Using some plasticard, fill in the gap where the rear wheel would normally sit. Then attach the ravenwing searchlights (or whatever you’re using to represent the engine)





Now trim the sentinel legs, removing the ball joint from the bottom. The cut the legs where shown. These will form the front forks so pin them to the forks as shown.







Then glue the trimmed mudguards to the front forks and the rear of the bike.





While this is drying, we can start on the weapon mount. Remove the marked areas from the teleport homer and glue the searchlight to the top.







Trim the ravenwing sensor and attach it to the side of your weapon, then glue this to the weapon mount. I used a plasticard piston to hold the whole thing in place while it dried.





Then glue the completed mount to the rear of the bike, attach the wheels et voila!



hope that's clear enough!

Thanks for the tut Jez and Binary! And you still have the old paint pot of Citadel Color?!! That's like 10+ years old! How'd it last so long?

geeze $6? its still $3 here, at least the other day when i bought some burnished gold.

whats funny is that when i was getting into warhammer a year or so back, i bought a lot of paints cheap on ebay. the old ones in those pots were fine, whereas about a half dozen of the ones that came after were dried hard as a rock and worthless.
