Welcome to Librarium Online!
I decided to get back into building my necron army, as it really only needed 7 models painted, so I am taking a break from my tau. I came across a cardboard pylon online and decided to give a go at it with plasticard.
Keep in mind this is my first attempt using plasticard and scratch building a model.
So using a pattern I came across, I began cutting out the shapes for the ring of a necron pylon with styrene
Using 4 layers of 1mm plasticard per side, I assembled 32 pieces of circle to form the ring.
These two sides are then spaced with a strip of thinner plastic on the inside and outside to give some girth to the ring.
I'm now working on the base of the model which is far more complex so may take a bit longer than the ring did.

Oooooh! *quiver* Oooooh! *quiver* Me likey! Me likey lots!
That looks pretty impressive. Bet it'll look even better painted. Personally, I could never justify the expense of buying one of those things given its rules, but... that's just cool!
I forget... does the "real" pylon use any translucent green "crystal" stuff at all? If so, what, and do you have a plan for that? There are places online where you can buy "generic" plastirod/tube/whatever in various shapes.
The 2008 apoc update has a cool formation for a pylon and necron warriors giving them all res orbs no matter where they are, so I wanted to try that out. Definately not going out and spending 200$ on one though. I'll stick with 10 bucks of plastic haha
Do you fancy making my friend one? lol...but seriously...niiiiiiiiice
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
detailed plasticard work like this makes me feel so mediocre
But its an awesome job dude!
Love the base! I could do so much with that, any chance of a printout of the templates you used?
