I started building a Dark Angels army, but since i'm a poor student (;)) i'll try to minimize the costs without limiting the army's size.

If you want to, you can follow my progress on http://wh40k.guggs.de

I'll keep you updated here also when new stuff is on the blog.

The first two posts are about a D.I.Y Landspeeder and a D.I.Y. Landraider, imho really worth a look. :)

Comments, suggestions and of course criticism are very welcome.

That is a very cool idea, did you find templates on the net or did you draw them up yourself??

That really looks like a very cool project to tackle..... we need more details :D

Looking good, the landspeeder in particular is very accurate. Are you using some kind of templates for these, or are you just winging it?

I have seen templates online for everything from drop pods to baneblades. The work on these is very well done.

I'm using a bunch of templates, not made by myself. I will put all the ones i used to build stuff online somewhere in the next few days and will continue to do so, so you can start building stuff too.
It's not that hard and the results are very impressive, especially considering the effort and cost.

You all know the "yeah" feeling after a great paintjob or some nice conversion? The "yeah" after building such a monster like the Landraider from scratch is even better.

Wow dude - very nice. Where have you got your templates from?

I've seen a couple of different attempts at template models and none have looked as good as yours.

The ones i built so far are from a guy named Bile, but his website seems to be offline. Here's some information about it: http://www.a40k.org/apocarch/iss4/show/warp/warp_current.htm

I got those templates together with some others i haven't built yet in a big package from a friend of mine.

The hood / roof addition came out of my head, no template for that one.

i just made a pilot for one of the landspeeders out of a 2nd edition starter box bolter space marine. was fun to cut the arms and legs with a hot knife and glue them back on in a sitting position. well the legs, the arms didn't survive the knife (what a poet i am) ... but luckily i had some spare arms to use for the pilot. pictures will be up tomorrow i think.
