I always said that my pictures were making my minis look worse than what they really look like in person (or so I always thought). No amount of online tutorials was helping. Luckily, in the spirit of self-giving I was able to present myself with a new digital camera this year, after the last one has been shipped over to relatives. In the same spirit (or actually to preserve my manhood after my Imperial alliance got spanked in the first Apocalypse game two weeks ago) I presented myself with a Baneblade which will be joining my Inquisitorial (Sisters) army in two weeks in the Apocalypse Game of the Millennium ™. Combining those two gifts this morning (couldn't help the need to test the camera) created a great opportunity to “spam” LO with yet another thread…
The starting point was of course the infamous Fortress of Arrogance. I wanted similar model, but without the platform on top of the turret which adds to the height of the model, making hiding BBlade even harder than it already is (not that you are really afraid of much short of Titans). My first attempt at combining COD building kits and tanks created my Inquisitorial Land Raider:
With the Baneblade I wanted something similar, but more in-line with IG designs – so nothing too crazy. For the color scheme – of course I had to go with the golden-rivets idea! I only added scab red as my color of choice for any weapons – which is consisted with my whole army (starting with bolt pistols, bolters and ending with the mighty battle cannons and Baneblade cannons), also adding some white here and there.
Beyond the usual stuff I want to convert an Escher ganger model to ride in the turret (hatch is operational), if I can get one to fit and look good (not too good at converting metal models).
Overall, the model is more than half way through the painting phase and I hope to have it ready for the January 5th game. After which I will have 6 models (Death Cult Assassins) to add to my army before I will be ready for a “family reunion” shot that some people here requested. Please note that it is not glued together yet, so pieces are just sitting on top of each other more-or-less where they will be after all is set and done...
That looks SAWEEEET!
I look forward to seeing this "family reunion" shot.
It's worth a krak!
beautiful land raider there. I've seen quote a few people combine COD kits with tanks for these roaming citadels but this one is particularly well done and painted
Interesting how similar and different both models are. The land raider has nicely-done grey highlights to make the edges "pop," but you either muted them severely or didn't use them at all on your Baneblade, letting the gold rivets do the talking. Nicely done! I also like how you've clearly used CoD (or whatever) pieces on the Baneblade to make it obvious that this is an Inquisitorial vehicle, but it's not as in-your-face as the cathedral platform which (I hope you'll forgive me for this) is overdoing the whole "We're the Inquisition! Our vehicles are DIFFERENT!" attitude.
All in all, they both look awsome, but I like the Baneblade better! Nice job!
Did you paint that all by hand?
Or are you sane?
man thats awesome! youre my hero!
I actually just registered to reply to this.
That looks fantastic, keep up the good work.
Well, the Baneblade is done (was ready on time) and already played in two Apocalypse games. I will try to post some finished pictures soon! Thank you all for the comments!
