6/15/13: Painting: Space Wolves Land Raider Spartan & Some Cheeky Little Grots

6/15/13: Painting: Space Wolves Land Raider Spartan & Some Cheeky Little Grots

Hey guys! So its been a little bit since I threw a post up, but I’ve been working diligently this last week on some sweet, new projects. I was outta town last weekend visiting my girlfriend, but as soon as I got back, I jumped right into some sweet, new projects! Lets get started, eh? So first off is a Land Raider Spartan, part of a larger Space Wolves commission I’m slowly getting through. I gotta say, this model is a BEAST. Its huge! All resin too, which is always fun! I misplaced my Chaos Land Raider, so I haven’t gotten a shot with it yet, but it’ll come soon. There is no transfer in the SW Decal sheet big enough for a Land Raider, so I just freehanded this guy on. The picture makes the black look a little streaky, but its been cleaned up since. The client wanted ‘RUSS’ somewhere on the tank, so its in a couple places instead! This is detail of the top, right below the Heavy Bolter mount. Really happy with the filigree! I love scale shots, so here’s a picture of this guy next to my Giant Chaos Spawn.

This is a report from my game with Poddy from Tuesday night. I am testing out a mech Chosen list, should be interesting.

Poddy decided to go first and deployed his Ravagers top right hand corner, a little further down is the Venoms with the Raider length ways on to give cover. Reavers are hiding behind a ruin on either flank of the Venom fleet. I pop my two Havoc units together in a building, I guess I could have put them further back maybe, though LOS would be a issue. It’s catch 22. Rhinos I deploy together using a large ruin for some shape of cover.

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

The Kabal of the Crimson Woe – Complete!

The Kabal of the Crimson Woe – Complete!

After far too much procrastination, I’m happy to say the Kabal of the Crimson Woe is finally finished! I’m fairly pleased with how they turned out – it’s a nice little raiding force that exemplifies the Dark Eldar’s swift and merciless way of war.

Killzone: Facebook, Podcasts.. Oh my!

Killzone: Facebook, Podcasts.. Oh my!

Well, the holidays are over and as the last Christmas carols are turning into silent whispers in the night, the Special Operations: Killzone project is rising once again! I know that we have been silent for the last week or so.. but now it’s time to unleash the hounds. Let’s start with.. oh, I dunno.. The Killzone Facebook Group ! Now you can follow us online and see what’s new in the world of sneaky operatives and THE way to play a skirmish game of Warhammer 40,000. It’s still a young page, but at least I’m hoping that it can turn into a source of information, where people post links to their battle reports, experiences and painted Killzone Teams. Ah, that would be glorious.

Update on the Land Raider Achilles Conundrum

Update on the Land Raider Achilles Conundrum

My last post was about the Land Raider I received for Christmas a few days ago, my desire to turn it into a Land Raider Achilles and my frustration when I learned that Forge World was only selling a complete conversion kit of the model and not just the conversion parts. I e-mailed Forge World a few minutes ago and actually got a very quick response! Here’s what I asked: Q: Hello, there! I just received GW’s Land Raider kit for Christmas and quickly entered your website in order to purchase the Land Raider Achilles conversion kit. Unfortunately I found out that you guys only have a complete kit for the Land Raider Achilles which has the plastic Land Raider sprues and then all the resin conversion pieces needed for the conversion. Is it possible for me to order just the resin pieces for a different price or do I have to wait for a release of the conversion kit. More importantly, are you aware if a conversion kit is ever going to be released and if it might be coming out soon? A:
