Is anyone willing to make the land raider from warrhammer 40k?

I can try. I'm not familiar with its weaponry though, so you will have to give me some requirements. Weapons? Speed? Armor?

The side mounted are lasers, but PACs (high damage low firerate) would fit better. Bolters are basicly high fire rate APS (though they are more like automated self-propelled-grenade launchers).

There are many variants when it comes to weapons. The crusader would work nice (with dual galtings and a bunch of smaller aps.

I checked the wiki. I will need it to have a speed of about 15m/s. As for the armor, I'm thinking metal, Heavy Armor, ERA. I'm thinking a 2:1 model to authentic ratio, so it will have a width of 12m, length 20m, height 8m. I think a CRAM as the Main Cannon will work best. As for the side mounted guns, I'm thinking about compact Advanced Cannons with Sabot Tracer rounds.

I can make small, compact lasers for the side, but they won't have a wide field of fire. As for the grenade launcher, do you think a fast loading CRAM might work?

As for the Crusader, the difficulty of making a Gatlinburg gun lies in how the magazine works. I can make belt-fed, but that takes a while to load.

I think its more about the looks than the actual weapons, they are very hard to replicate. For lasers, you could have the firing piece on a turret with the actual cavities and stuff inside the vehicle.
Or you could use some APS firing only tracers. They would fit the actual weapon better (high damage piercing shot, low firerate).
They are firing like this (at 35s, same guns on a smaller tank top mounted, youll later see the gatling used by a walker as well):

When it comes to looks, crams for the bolters would work, though in the 40k fluff these guns have quite some firerate.

I got in the mood to try some 40k vehicles this evening as well, though starting with the smaller ones.

So CRAM as the Main cannon, probably Sabot Tracers for the side mounted weapons
Thanks for helping me, im fairly new to this game and im still learning.

12m, length 20m is way too small sir. Not sure it would fit a regular W40K tank.
Bolters are actually around 20mm last time I checked, are similar in firepower as well. They do have quite a rate of fire to make up for there small (for 40k and Ftd) size.

I never did tanks before, its quite hard to but all the stuff in such a small vehicle. But I made somewhat working tanks based on the rhino chassis (working on a razorback right now).

I tried doing both 1:1 and 2:1, but it didnt turned out. FTL is just meant do be a big more chunky, so I went as big as it needed to be to have some kind of details (its more 3:1)

I need some decals and actually make them a bit more combat effective.
Looks pretty good. That is a predator and a whirlwind right?

Thx, youre right. Good to see that they are recognizable. Next weekend I will dedicate more time on them. I want to make more imperial crafts, like a Vindicator or a Land Speeder Hovercraft, maybe some Leman Russ.
Is there any specific variant I should be trying to replicate (Crusader, Spartan, Proteus, etc.)? The current design has two side-mounted 60mm Adv. Cannons that have a belt-fed loader. They fire an APTrace round (3 Gunpowder Casings, Visible Tracer, 2 Solid Bodies, Sabot Body, Sabot Head). On the front is a 500mm HEFrag CRAM with a 2:1 Explosive to Fragmentation pellet ratio.

Edit: Sorry the design is taking long. There is little time and an abundance of roadblocks. I did some restyling of the Land Raider. It now has 70mm side mounted guns, but only fires a 2 module round (Gunpowder Casing, Sabot Head). It fires like the Land Raider guns, but does not do damage like them. Also, I added a dual-barreled 500mm CRAM turret in place of the 1. They use 1:1 Hardener Fragmentation pellet ratio. It has a 1600 power fuel engine, which drives it at about 17 m/s. The armor has a full metal exterior, followed by a layer of Heavy Armor. The sides have an additional Heavy Armor plate within the treads. The front and back also have an ERA pad. Since there is such a low clearance, there is no armor on the bottom, only a Metal floor. The chassis is 13m wide, 20m long, and 8m tall. It also has an Autocannon at the top hatch (supposed to be the pintle-mounted Bolter). I will upload it to the Workshop as soon as it is done.
