Superheavy Assault Walker by mangozac Superheavy Assault Walker by mangozac
Epic does not even begin to describe the journey that has been this project. From such humble beginnings in early 2008, far before Resin Addict was even dreamed of, I embarked on my first scratchbuilding project. It was ambitious, for certain, but I'm the kind of person who jumps into the deep and and either sinks or swim. The sheer amount I learned along the way was just mind blowing and after two years of construction it was finally completed. The problem was that after such an epic modelling project I found myself burned out and since I didn’t play 40k any more I had no desire to actually build up one of my own!

It was over a year later that I decided I was ready to build up my own SAW kit to proudly display. But it has taken me almost another two years to assemble and finish painting the damn thing! Due to the size of it just making the base was a mission in itself.

Just like with the original scratchbuild, painting has been a massive educational adventure too. This was my first time using “advanced” modelling techniques such as airbrushing, clear coats, oil paints and using pigments for anything other than rust. I screwed up a lot along the way and the finished model still isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough that for now at least I’m happy to call it done!

You can see more pictures on my blog: [link]

I designed and scratchbuilt the master model for this kit and resin copies are now available for purchase from Chapterhouse Studios: [link]

If I had the money I'd buy this. I'd build it, paint it, admire it for a bit.

Then I'll take it to my GW and challenge anyone to take it on. :|

Granted, in this fantasy world where I'd have the money, I'd also have two Riptides flanking it. In any case, this is amazing.
