The Fabricator General will see you now


How many Leman Russ tanks you reckon you could build in an afternoon?

Now how many Forge World ones do you think you could persuade to hang together?

I popped round to Zzzzzz’s gaff the other day for a chinwag and some nerdery, and while discussing his butterfly mind anf the myriad projects he has on the go we tried to instill some order.

Part of this meant getting stuff out of the garage, in order to put it back in the garage in less disarray.. or at least after a coat of lookin at.

It came to light that one of the boxes contained a whole armoured section planned for his DKK army…. now at this point I confess I am a little odd.. I build everything… then I let the guilt me into painting them by sitting around all grey.. I suggested this to him and well.. we were off.


That’s what they looked like at noon…

..and by about seven PM there was twelve Leman Russ Battle tanks sat out there. All with Forge world bodies and turrets, air filters, track sections…


All he needs to do now is dress them up with packs/stowage smoke etc and then the minor little task of painting them :)

A very enjoyable day on the munitorum assembly line!


  1. Am sure that Zzzzz is very happy for the help. Else that box might have stayed as it were for a long long time.. :)

  2. K: You make it sound so easy. And somehow, at the time, it did seem easy. I'm back to the garage now to carry on with the track guards.

  3. Track guards; check.
    Radio antenna; check.
    Data antenna: check.
    Undercoat; check.
    Undercoat on the five mid turret Chimerae that were sitting on the shelf; check.

    (new project to build another twelve 'russ from the leftovers: check)

  4. Good gawds you are both modeling nutters! :)

    Impressive stuff I must say!

  5. Having built three in an afternoon, I am aware of how big an achivement this truely is! I look forward to the end results!

  6. Ah the joys of building multiples of the same tank all at once. Its always worth it when you can line them all up and admire them.

  7. Seems I may have started something if these are already working thier way through paint.. though i'm not sure the ideas was to replace a finished project with a whole new project envolving plans for the unused bitz :)

    still, the next apoc game should have even less room on the table now :)

    thanks for all the comments guys, was a fun afternoon and we couldnt not share with you :)

  8. That's so cool. Just the picture of them all lined up like that is worth it all. I'd be absolutely terrified seeing that on the other side of the table.

  9. Looking cool man!

    Also, where'd the bits for that cathedral looking building come from?

  10. SO BEAUTFUL p_p Its marvelous.

  11. @andy.. its scary indeed.. even scarier when you realise theres a whole other tank squadron in another box....

    @Grim -both the tanks and the church are Zzzzz's.. but I bleieve that church is the pegasus gothic church kit..

    must pick one up myself..

    @impcommander.. thanks :)
