I lke challenges. I think they are motivating and I always appreciate the "spice" they add to any army exercise. So I jumped into the E Tenebrae Lux (ETL) challenge as a way to kick off my crusade.
Now having said that, I went a little "Joker" on my vow entries as you'll see in a little bit, but I'm more of a fluff player/modeler and I like to play with fun stuff, though I will do my best to play you as hard as I can with what I brought. I am all about blunt force trauma. Also, I think 40K is never more fun than when engaged in an Apocalypse game. I just wish I had more time to set them up and play.
Anyway, the following models are the start of my crusade, per the painting challenge. They are reclamation projects, having been with someone previously, been stripped or finished up and are now ready to be primed. I should mention that the sponsons for the LRC are still in pieces as I will paint them first and then finish up the construction. I really don't like post-painting construction, but I don't see an easy way to do the sponsons when they are all put together.
My vow for the time being:
Dreadnought - "Pious"
I'm calling this puppy, "Witch Hunter"
It's a "counts as" Land Raider Crusader (to align with ETL), but while I was working on the sponsons, I felt some crazy coming on and got this idea and wondered if I could make it work. Basically, instead of putting in the normal TL-Assault Cannon, I thought about going the full monty and putting TL-Redeemer cannons in the front turret and a sponson gun shield as the top part. I clipped off the back pieces of the guns that normally form the link to the promethium tanks that sit on the other side of the sponson and just let them sort of butt together.
It seems like it works and I hope it is worthy of being in a Templar armory.
Anyway, I'm glad to be finally kicking off my crusade, which just so happens to be the Community crusade effort that M2C is pulling together. When I get to the point of painting the crusade badges, they will all proudly feature the Albigensian Crusade to honour our community and the best sub-forum on the BnC.
C&C greatly appreciated.
