Taydus's Entry: Tank traps/Dragon's teeth - GB19

Post by Taydus » Sun Sep 19, 2010 9:12 pm

I felt like doing something really simple, so I decided on some nice Tau/Necron-ish (MAYBE Eldar) tank traps/vehicle stoppers. they can probably be used for other stuff, but depending on the paint job these should work well for either.

It's meant to be just a base shape, with a pillar of energy that cuts any vehicles that attempt to ram them. Once the glue dries I'll make a mold of this, make a few copies, touch them up, and paint.

Once the glue dries I'll probably make the energy pillar a little thinner, but not by too much.

I like it! Very Tau-ish in my opinion. I'll have to make some of these for my Tau army some day.

Fantastic idea, love the pillar of energy. Simple, effective, really cool looking, amazing, what else is there to say.

Can't wait to see some paint on them!

You'd think with something this simple I'd have the time to work on it... I'm astounded how busy work has been, and at my total inability to find a way to manage my time around it.

Will finish it eventually and post pics in another thread along with an I had an idea for Tau barricades to go with it, but those I'll need to get laser cut. Sorry, again, for totally failing to finish a project in time...
