Superheavy Assault Walker by mangozac Superheavy Assault Walker by mangozac
My first major scratchbuild project, which turned into my first major casting project. Talk about jumping into the deep end! It was intended as a Tau superheavy for Warhammer 40k (I used to play but these days am only interested in the models).

This project was completed over 2 years and ended up being a fully fledged resin model kit. Can now be purchased from [link]

The overall assembled model stands about 300mm tall and I won't be doing anything this big again in a hurry!

Design and sculpting: Mangozac

Haha well spotted: I've fixed it now: 300mm. Now a 300 metre tall model: that would be impressive!

Is this a 3D Animation Model or a Real Life model. If it is a real life model than what did you make it from?

This is a real physical model. Construction materials for the original were basically styrene (plastic) sheet/tube/rod and two part epoxy putty (Milliput). From this master model silicone moulds were created and the pictured model above is a resin cast made from these moulds.

For those who are interested the (long) build log can be found over on Advanced Tau Tactica: [link]
