As you know, I love Forge World's heresy era tanks. Their appearance suit my post-heresy theme, and considering the Chaos Space Marines ran off into the Eye of Terror with their heresy gear, more chaos armies should use them. My only problem is the price; only affordable with much saving.
This made me think; can I make my own versions? To find out, I've decided to try and convert a regular Rhino into a Deimos pattern variant, and will show you how to do the same. Today's post will show you how to create the distinctive front plate.
For this, you will need:
- Plasticard of various thickness
- Plasticard Rod (small diameter)
- Rhino front armour plate
- Plasticard strips (optional, you can use plasticard)
- Ruler (metal)
Add plasticard strips to the bottom, the same width as the raised plate. Add enough layers so that it matches the thickness of the top construction.
And there you go, one complete front door. Next time, I'll be showing you how to do the side armour plates, including the round doors.
