    Big, Bad, Baneblade! (WIP)

    My marines are still waiting to be really "finished", my Grey Knights and Stormtroopers are stuck in limbo, and there's a pile of other projects bigger than I am waiting for me in my workshop... And they all got shoved even further onto the back burner when Apocalypse came out. I know, I know - long overdue projects before impulse buys, but this one's just soooo cool... Not to mention a whole lot bigger!! (Wait in line? Why? Run the line over!)

    It may not be the Stormblade I've wanted for years, But I'm absolutely nuts over the new Baneblade! (1/3 the $$$ certainly helps!!)

    Anyways, I just figured I'd share what I've got to show so far. It's essentially finished, but it still needs most of the detailing and of course a fair bit of weathering. The paint scheme is adapted from WWII German Panzers, and I was quite surprised at how well it translated to this beast. It ate nearly 2 full pots of paint, though - Yikes!

    So, what do you guys think? Good? Bad? Ugly? (hope not!!) Suggestions, comments and critiques are quite welcome!

    Oh wow! I love it! You got it right, very German WW2.

    The airbrushing (spraying, etc.) looks nice and smooth, and its a good choice of colours.

    Well done! ;Y

    Very nice work, Wraith. The camo blends evenly, and it's a consistent pattern.

    What kind of airbrush and paints do you use, if you don't mind me asking?

    I think we should do a Baneblades-only gallery post here on LO

    This does seem the going trend. I suppose it 'might' have something to do with Apoc.

    Wraith, do you mind if I add your above picture to my image files for use them in the 'pics of the day thread?'

    Wow, nice painting! That's really got a great feel to it, with the camouflage just perfect. I'd love to see that on the table (just not across from me!)

    Do I mind?? Of course not! Go right ahead! Here's another one, for good measure:



    As for my Airbrush setup, I'm using a Badger 175 Crescendo (meaning to look into adding an Iwata brush sometime in the near future), and the paints are a mix of Tamiya (the sand base and a bit of hull red mixed into the brown) and Gunze Sangyo (the green and most of the brown mix) acrylics.

    Thanks for the comments, guys. And as for seeing it across the table, don't worry too much - yet. While it's only managed two kills in its lone battle so far (both Hammerheads), it kept another eight Hammerheads and Sky Rays (one big block of Tau tanks fielded en masse) permanently stunned until a Scorpion and Pulsar Revenant Titan turned their attentions to me 5 turns later!
