Completely new to the world of Warhammer and 40K...Background:
HS Technology teacher who works with students with 3D modeling and Pepakura also do alot of work with 3D Printing etc.
I am a current member of both the 501st and Rebel Legion, but looking for something else creative to work on...
I have been a gamer and the like forever... and have seen Warhammer around but never really got introduced to it...
even though I always thought the space marines were pretty epic....So anyway... a few questions....
1. I have started collecting various versions of the foam pepakura files for a Space Marine build...
But I am a little confused by the 768 scale vs. 850... what is the difference? I am assuming the
850 is the larger 8ft tall version of the Marines.... can I then assume that 768 would be more in 6ft range?
2. I am a bigger dude... 5' 11" and about 400lbs... if I wanted to go with the smaller stature 768 scale, could
I get that armor to fit and to look correct on my oversized frame?
3. I tried to follow a link to 4shared for the 768 scaled armor, but it appears to be broken... anyone have a good link
for a complete set of files for that build?
? Or can explain how to scale down the 850?
4. How does a newbie get up to speed on the wide range of factions within the game? I have seen a ton of cool
armor builds... but how to choose when your a complete newb?
Thanks for letting a newb in the door.... Hope to do you all proud and come up with something cool!
