Did the Land Raider Achilles foreshadow the new Hull Points system?

Did the Land Raider Achilles foreshadow the new Hull Points system?

This has been bothering me ever since 6th edition came out. No, actually.. even before that – when the first “concrete” rumors and leaks flooded the blogosphere. Before I added the side sponsons.. which were a PAIN to build. So.. was the Land Raider Achilles an early sign for the Hull Points system – perhaps one of the biggest changes brought to us by 6th Edition? I think so. But let me clarify the actual fact of the matter here: Here are the early “Experimental Rules” of the Land Raider Achilles , as posted on the Forge World website as soon as the Land Raider Achilles was announced. Notice, for example, the original point cost of 300 points (compared to the actual, current point cost of 325 points.) “..

Heresy Era World Eaters – Land Raiders painting in progress, part 2

Heresy Era World Eaters – Land Raiders painting in progress, part 2

A little more forward motion on the Heresy-era World Eaters Land Raiders – got all the metal areas blacked in, the Boltgun metal applied and a nice black wash over it, bringing the color down to a nice dark iron look.

Heresy Era World Eaters – Land Raiders Built

Heresy Era World Eaters – Land Raiders Built

The World Eaters army I have planned fields a pair of Land Raiders, mostly because I got a great deal on a pair of ’em on eBay a few months back. The pair of Mk. 1’s had been soaking in Simple Green and finally came out, so I set about repairing and rebuilding them where necessary. Once that was done I took them out and gave them their first passes with the three-stage primer method I’m experimenting with: This time around I kept the original lascannons that came with the kit, though I replaced the brittle and fiddly plastic arm with a length of brass rod and a little wad of greenstuff down inside the mount to really make it solid. The Lascannons always take the brunt of the bumps and scrapes, so the brass rod should be far more durable. Only one of the Land Raiders came with the original Heavy Bolters, so I swapped them out with the sponson Heavy Bolters from a Baneblade kit – the ammo feeds matched up almost perfectly with the grooves in the top hatch. Providence!

Heresy Era Thousand Sons – Spartan painting in progress

Heresy Era Thousand Sons – Spartan painting in progress

First off, let me start by saying that it’s 2/1/12 (at least for my American readers), and as such I would be remiss if I didn’t suggest listening to the linked song today ! For those of you across the pond, I suppose I should have mentioned it on the 2nd of January! Heh. With that out of the way, I thought I’d put up a few pics of the Land Raider Spartan, now that I’ve managed to get some paint on it. All in all it’s coming along fairly well – I’m pleased with the look even though it is quite obviously a scratchbuild. Side by side with a ‘real’ Mk.I Land Raider the differences are rather obvious, but I’m hoping I can downplay some of the more obvious shortcomings in the painting process. One thing I have noticed is the paint tone is quite different between the two tanks which I imagine is partially due to the cardstock nature of the Spartan. I’m going to have to give it a second wash of Baal Red in hopes of darkening it down a bit. The mix of old style construction and new-era bits does at least tie the two tanks together thematically, I’m fairly pleased with how that’s come along so far. Still a fair bit of painting to go of course! As the spartan is going to be the transport for one of the legion tactical squads I went with the big arrow on the top hatch (as I’m doing something similar with the Rhinos). Overall the spartan is quite a bit longer than the base Mk

1750- 5th ed Deathwing – In honor of the new DA FAQ

Gotta love GW. Guess what, Deathwing just became viable again. Or maybe not viable, but still fun to play for lulz.
