First off, I'd like to invite everyone reading this to participate in the Augustus Arena B&C Inter-Frater Hobby Challenge Event that has started yesterday.
With Curze and ten Berzerkers done, I need my vehicle fix. As such I've been working on a Predator Annihilator over the last couple of days. I showed you an earlier update of this tank earlier here, but I got distracted by the Eight Legged Lord of Skulls.
Although I absolutely love Subtle Discord's chaos trim kits, it is just an eetsy peetsy to elaborate for my Night Lords. I bought the Proditor Pattern Predator Extra Armour kit from him, and distributed the components evenly among two tanks (the other one is another Annihilator). This tank has the extra armour on the side, the other tank gets all the other parts.
That still left me with the option to do the lascannon sponsons. About three years ago, I purchased an OOP MkI Predator Destructor from Ebay, with the metal turret and sponsons. The turret was used for my Predator with Plasma Destroyer. The sponsons, however, have been rummaging around my vehicle bits box for quite some time now, and I thought I'd use them. I didn't have the lascannons, so I used the lascannons from the Dark Talon kit. These fit quite nicely, and I only needed a little greenstuff to make the transition smooth.
There's still a lot to be done - I still need to do a lot of trophies, perhaps some pre-painting weathering, and definitely some riveting work, but the major hassle will be trying to fix the sponsons to the tank (they're poster buddy'd on right now) seeing as I can't seem to find the metal plate with which to affix the sponson to the original predator...
This is what I have so far.
What do you think?
@Teetengee: Thanks mate! I really like the model too.
@The_Chaplain: Cheers - he's throwing everything into that sweep doesn't he?
@Noctus Cornix: Hehehe a little bit of trolling never hurt anyone
@Flint13: Hilariously dynamic? BTW I wonder if Space Marines even wear socks in their armour. Or is it just the black carpace all over?
@Wicced: I shall do, buddy!
@dantay_xv: Ah, gotcha! And I thoroughly encourage you to get one of these 'mythical spraying beasts'. It has to be for you, but I'll never go back. And there's tons and tons of video tutorials on the net. The banners couldn't be simpler to paint exactly because they have contours and curves - they're an airbrusher's friend
@MrBear: Thanks buddy! I'm happy to see you are on track as well with the 33d!
@KrautScientist: Thanks on the 'zerkers. Ahaa the sickly kind of pasty. Well, good!
@The Hydra: I couldn't agree more with you mate. I've seen some awesome renditions that looked radically different from mine. The IB is indeed from the CoH command kit.
@Grizzly_bear: Cheers matey!
