    Hiya

    Just started 40k papercraft and thought Id also do a build of newobmij's lovely nephilim! I don't collect Dark Angels but love that dinky little model.

    I would post pics but my upload keeps failing :( (and the jpg is below the min sizes). Any ideas?

    Yaay - now the lovely new site is up I can post the pics of my first build.

    There print quality let it down a bit but overall Im very pleased how it came out. I made extra effort to strengthen it with cardfoam/card and black lined the edges which seems really important in lifting the end result. I also used plastic tubes for some small round bits like the gun barrels.

    Also - build notes. I found the build fairly easy to figure out - there were no instructions but looking at newobmij's finished models it was all fairly obvious as he's sensibly grouped related parts together. The one part I couldn't figure out was this.

    But newobmij kindly explained that it goes around the base of the machine gun (forget the proper name) barrel - so I thought Id mention that incase anyone else couldnt figure it out.
