Erm... I wish this was a how to, but note the "?" after the topic.

I'm trying to make an assault cannon for my epic terminator, the one in new version of Space Hulk. I'm reluctant to use the cannon off a Sentinel.

Also tried using .64mm rods with no success. Anyone made one before and what size materials did you use?

Well, I used CAD, a Matter Printer, and then cast it...

Well you're either very rich to own a Matter Printer, or lucky to have access to one.

Unfortunately I'm neither. So any other ideas?

The Sentinel assault cannon works pretty well, why are you reluctant to use it?

Just shave down the front of the storm bolter, glue on the AC and add an ammo box out of plasticard if you want.

Can someone explain to me how does it works? Is it expansive?

It is also expensive. Maybe.

The costs are:
Software (Blender is free, MoI is $200, others are more expensive)
3D print costs (www.printapart.com, $10 per cubic centimeter, plus shipping)
Molding and casting ($90 beginner's kit from micromark http://www.micromark.com/COMPLETE-RESIN ... ,8174.html)

It seems to cost me a lot more than that...

Well, I drink a lot more than you, so I'm probably mistaken.

lol. Anyway, back on topic. I didnt want to use the sentinel weapon because it didnt seem as detailed as I would have liked. But looking like I have no other option.

7 peices of .030" Plastic rod, one slightly longer. Haven't actually tried, but the scale should work out, and at less than $2.50 each.

The old plastic dreadnought weapon also works really well

Yep this. If you don't have any thin enough then stretch some thinner rod out stretched-sprue style.

My other suggestion would be to make yourself a mini extrusion plate. use a fine pin vice drill bit to drill 7 holes though a bit of plasticard, then force greenstuff/milliput/ProCreate etc though it to get yourself a long sausage of autocannon barrle, let it dry then cut to lenght ;)

Hi!

Here's how the ones I made look like:

i just used 3 ordinary pins for each cannon - cut to size and glued together. Then I removed the muzzles of the storm bolters and glued the pins in the same spot.

cheers,

I used some of the aerial parts from Gothic ships. They came out OK.
