Default Furyion's Superheavy Artillery WIP Thread

this is where i will post every step of building my superheavy artillery piece and an random wip pics i come up with. so lets get the ball rolling...

First things first, you need the baneblade chassis


Then add the sponsons extra armor and fuel tanks as normal


I placed the stacks on the seam between armor plates 1 and 2 because the gun breach will be almost over the rear axle (similar to the basilisk)


speaking of the gun, here a shot of the barrel i plan to use as the Doomslayer Cannon


heres a pic with the Doomslayer, 3 basilisks, and a WIP colossus in the front left.


a tech priest next to the breach end of the gun with coaxial earthshaker


and Gunnery Seargent "Victor Kelborne" who got his paintjob today.


sorry i couldn't get the pics on here,( You need to swap the URL code for IMG to get pics up, sorted it for you. Vash.)

C&C welcome.

Nice work and well done to begin with... The larger guns are an interesting thing, keep us all updated. Only comment I would make is thin your flesh with a few drops of water and it will go a lot smoother.

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Going by the scale of the gun relative to the tank chassis, I would recommend the Geschutzwagen Tiger:



...as a possible guide; it was basically a self-propelled version of the excellent 17cm Kanone 18 heavy artillery piece mounted on a Royal Tiger chassis. Never nade it into production, but it mioght be a good source of ideas for you.

well just had a major setback, was in terra haute for the day and all the hobby stores where closed, so no plastic card and a couple other supplies i needed. so is there a good place online where i can buy plastic card?
@Alexious, thanks for the tip on the flesh, i put three coats on and it helped quite a bit but i'm still not happy with it.
the doomslayer cannon is just the stock barrel to my paintball gun, so its going to get a decent amount of attention when the time comes, and the tank that Svartmetall posted a picture of is pretty much what i am thinking, except the back won't look so tall.
thanks for the feedback

I think the front turret plate from the Shadowsword/stormlord kit might be good. Svart's suggestion above would be a good guide for this.

These look like they're going to be monsters! I can't wait to see them done!

And I fully approve of the receipt paper tube as a cannon. I used the same thing to build a vindicator from a rhino. (Though it isn't complete either)

Cheers,
Kreuger

k here are some pics the progress i've made. forgive me if my work isn't perfect.

here is a pic of the gun deck, it is set about 3/4 of an inch up from the hull and the loaders platform is hanging off the back.


a shot of the back end, it will get more details later


this is the main gun and the mount


main gun with eathshaker


and finally, the main gun on the chassis
