    Dug this guy outta mothballs, I got into painting/building Warhammer back in college but never played the game, wanted to get a Dreadnaught, but decided to make my own, he is my tiny Dreadnaught.

    The main body was a float from the SeaQuest float diver thing, it was an excellent kit for greeblies.

    The gattlin was paperclips, the back back was a small wooden block with crosshatch on it.

    The rest was just random plastic shapes.

    I fully support the idea of making your own warhammer figures if you're into the modelling more than the playing. They're pretty expensive, and it's more fun to make your own.

    I actually really like that background scenery...what are those boxes from?

    Life

    They are Lifesavers Gummi trays, my nephews had some from Halloween and I realized they make nice little cargo containers.

    All you have to do is take 2 use platic weld, then I took a small set of pliers and crimped the edges down, the weld holds but the crimp makes it solid.

    You have to make sure the sides do not cave in or come apart before you paint.

    The stickers are from some old Zoids sheets.

    That's such an awesome idea! Sorry to take this thread off topic but it's cool little discoveries like this - turning everyay objects into a very cool custom prop - that I really appreciate. Kudos to you for the creativity!
