    Hello guys, after a long search, I found in ARMORMAN post models for Space Marines (Thanks a lot ARMORMAN).
    I'm new in paper crafting, and there were no tutorial how to put all those pieces together, so I printed one on black white printer at regular 80gr/m paper just to figure out pieces. After long assembly, I made it, but I figure out I have to use better paper, so can you recommend me what paper is best for this (glossy or regular 150g), as I had hard time to complete this with regular paper. Also I had few pieces left behind :), so few tips would be great. I don't have original WH40K piece to compare with it. Here is pic of my test Marine:

    There are 3 different space marine paper figures (in 30mm scale) that are available. two have had build threads dedicated to them (Silveroxide did an extensive one) and the one designed by myself and Tirik came with instructions. which one is this? If mine, I used regular cardstock.

    Figure looks pretty good, BTW.


    BTW, As far as reference for the build is concerned, google search would bring up loads of GW Model pics.

    Thanks ARMORMAN for your reply, it means a lot when senior artist like you praise rookie work.

    I haven't search for instructions, as I started to assemble Marine as soon as I found it in your post.
    I checked out Silveroxide post with instructions, and found it very helpful, but what could be problem is that I think his model isn't 30mm, but bigger. On pieces he using pen for curving paper, I should use tooth stick :).
    Anyway, I'll try to assemble Marine on cardstock 150g/m paper I printed in color, and see what's going to be...

    btw, those pieces of yours are real art, especially jet bike and scout marine, and that red Chaos marine is genuine, as he is deformed by Warp :)

    Welll....the red figure was actually a Terminator (which is in the DL section).

    Silver did enlarge the patterns for an easier build.

    As making this marine was real time consuming, and I had wish to try to play WH40K, I tried to make some Chibbi soldiers, and so they are, Marines and Imperial Guard, and I made Rhino to have box to put extra weapons in it.

    Been trying to finish test building Malik Drako's Necron Death Scythe for him...

    Also, does anyone know how to rip models from Iphone apps? there's a game called Warhammer Freeblade that has a Knight Titan model in it (free DL, BTW)....ok....you're it's pilot...but still if we could rip the models...

    Propuh,

    Was that Scissors and Planes' model? I think that his is the easiest.

    I had a chance to play it on my brother's IPad today. The graphics were great (better than the trailer shows), and it was like Dawn of War: really well designed. I know we all bash GW's prices, but really, all their models and software are well done. And from the bit I played, I would LOVE to build the Imperial Knight, and the Ork vehicles mecha (using the term loosely here) were really well done. Too bad it's not out for Android.

    Thank the Ukraine guys for placing my Baneblade in the book. I sometimes make white models as well, to prove that the model is made out of paper. Thanks for sharing.

    Armorman....not sure if Patoroch is a member here, but in case not could you let him know Im currently working on the Falcion Tank Destroyer and found a piece too short? I marked it in the pics below (The red piece in the diagram) plus included a pic of the original piece next to my fix.

    Thanks
