DIY Rhino

By
As anyone that plays or collects Warhammer miniatures know, it's fucking expensive, even more for the poor souls like me, that live in a country far away from any GW shop and have to rely on the unpredictable mail service and absurdly heavy taxes for import... 

Other day I stumbled across this site www.papercraftsquare.com/?s=wa… and found many plans for building miniatures almost for free, a "Poor men Warhammer"... So this was my first try. Unhapilly I used some very very thick papers and the model didn't assembled correctly. Anyway, the "orky" look will make it into a nice add to my Waaaagh as a "Looted Rhino". As soon as I finish painting it I will post =D

Hahahahhahaha

Does look a lot like an Warhammer 40k Rhino... and as Warhammer 40k is a british game, I think the might have taken some inspiration there =D

I've looked at the site and love it. Not enough guard vehicles though.

Pretty darn good job for what you had to work with and it will fit the “Ork’s” really well.

Nice but GW is doing new shitty models and doing them expensive i dotn understend GW it whant to lose all of customers?

It happens when a corporation grows too large and the directors get far away from their products. The ones calling the shots are not the wargame-nerds anymore, but technocrats that want to follow trends and make strategies without even remembering what the hell are they selling... 

I hope they come back to their senses sooner than later...

Well, it's not bad at all, but I think that, as you say, it will work better as a looted rhino.

How come you've used such a thick paper? That almost looks like cardboard.

Well, I'm making a graduation course in design, and I have plenty of really thick paper we use to make models of buildings and furniture... it's usually thicker than cardboard, mostly like 1 mm to 1 cm thick =D

It's also fucking hard to cut, so some parts became uneven... almost like it was made by a Big Mek XD

Fuck, that's just TOO think D:

I've seen worse efforts at home-made Rhinos.  You even bothered to make an interior!
