Another Grot Tank


You may remember Mike did a Grot tank model after being inspired by Grot tanks on Jeff Hall's blog The Adept's Forge

You can see Mike's Grot tank here.

I had an extra tank looking chassis from a Micro Art Studio Iron Brotherhood model, and I decided to make a Grot tank with it.

I added a few bits, a Goblin head and a Tamiya German helmet. The hatch is a Goblin fantasy shield.


Painted dark panzer yellow with lots of washes, rust and chipped metal.



An easy and fun little model.

  2. Great looking mini, super-fun conversion!

    How did you make the hinge on the hatch?

  3. woroxon, go for it, it's not tough to build at all, you can do a better one.

    Dave, thanks you are my hero.

    Esty, thanks, the hinge is plastic sprue, scored 3 times by twisting between the jaws of some plastic clippers, the rounded nubs on the ends are the ends of smaller sprue that was filed round and sliced off with a hobby knife, and glued on with plastic cement. I filed an edge of the shield flat to glue it to.

  5. Thanks, John!

    You were a big help! The hatch I was attaching was a little bigger than this one, so I modified your hinge method slightly. (I'll post pictures later today)

  7. It really turned out nicely. I am going to have to a unit of these sooner rather then later as I just love the way they look.

    Nice job.
