The components for the kit are cut by a laser into the card. To keep the parts on the card some of the cuts only go half way through. In other places, a small tab has been left attaching the piece to the frame.

When you want to remove a piece from the card, flip the card over and look for the incomplete lines. You will only need to cut these lines to release the part.

It is strongly recommended that you use superglue rather than wood glue. Superglue bonds in about five seconds and also soaks into the card without warping.

Part 1 - The Shrine Base

Remove the three circles from the frame.

Glue them together so that the one with the octagon etched into it is on top (there are guide lines on one of the larger circles to help you centre it).

Remove the larger of the base pieces from the frame (this larger one has an octagon with no hole)

Score all the etched lines BUT DO NOT CUT THROUGH - you just want neat crisp folds.

The strip has eight sections that are the same width plus one short one (marked [a]).

Fold the strip around and glue the short tab (a) underneath the long tab (b). The long tab should line up with the little etched line on the short tab.

Fold the octagonal piece down as a roof and line up the sides with the top. The easiest way to do this is to start with the side opposite the fold. Once you have aligned that, the others are very easy to do.

Once you have aligned it, a few drops of superglue will glue it down

Remove the eight detailed side pieces from the frame (there are four different kinds and you get two of each)

Save the little four-pointed star that comes out of one of them (on the left) - it can be used to give some chaos flavour to the autocannon later if you want.

Glue the side panels to the base of the shrine. You can reverse the pieces if you want to give a little more variation but putting similar pieces on opposite sides is how I normally do it.

After you are done you should have two of the little star things saved.

Now remove the smaller of the shrine pieces, this time the one with the hole in the top. Score through the etched lines but DO NOT CUT THROUGH. You just want neat folds.

As for the top, glue the short tab underneath the long tab, lining up the edge of the long tab with the etched line on the short tab.

Once you have glued down the roof, remove the eight spikey frames and glue them to the sides.

Once these are all glued on, the piece should look like this.

If you want to glue the autocannon to the base permanently then use the extra circle piece you created (see instructions below)

Hold the second piece underneat the top of the shrine and glue the autocannon to it. Do not get glue on the shrine itself.

This will let the autocannon rotate.

Part 2 - building the autocannons


Once you have completed the autocannons, you can return here.

Part 3 - building the mounting for the autocannon

Remove the mounting piece from the frame and gently score all the etched lines. DO NOT CUT THROUGH! You only want nice clean folds.

Glue the ends together, putting the shortest tab (at the end) underneath the other end and lining the other end up flush with the edge of the short tab

DRY FIT THIS FIRST! Fold up one of the side panels and align the edges with it. Once they are alined, put a drop of superglue on the joins to glue them together.

Fold up the other side and do the same thing.

Remove the chaos decoration panels from the frame.

Glue them to the five sides that are flush with each other.

Remove the two sets of circles and glue them together as shown.

Glue one of the circles to the bottom of the mounting as shown. Save the other.

The other one is only used if you want to permanently attach the autocannon to the chaos shrine (see the chaos shrine instructions)

Remove one of the circles with the two rectangular slots in it. This is the mounting for the autocannon.

Dry fit it like this but do not glue yet.

Attach it to the side of the mounting using the guide lines etched into the mounting. Once you are happy with the angle, glue it in place.

Attach the small glyphs saved over from the Shrine of Chaos construction (if you want)
