Been a bit slack with updates here, didn't really feel compelled to take photos etc.
Anyways, got quite a few things going on now...almost too many projects. But, I will focus on getting the IIIrd finished first!
So, first up I picked up a cheap nib
Drop Pod on eBay for $35 and I traded in the Deathwatch Rhino and some Malifaux thingo I had won in our clubs raffle for another nib
Drop Pod, as luck would have it I also found a secondhand pod there too so I grabbed that!
This is all going towards an Orbital Assault list for my Sons of Horus, which required more Veterans to be made. These guys are Combi-plasma armed and will be split in half to go with the 10 Tacticals I made a year back but never needed them. Ripped some arms off some guys I wasn't happy with and reposed/rearmed some Sergeants with Fists and Helmet Crests.
And I got around to using the Plasmaguns I bought three years ago and made a Support Squad.
The big blob of infantry I get to paint up now!
Now, I bought a trio of Dragonforge flying stands for my Avenger-wing that is still unstarted BUT I figured I would make good use of them for my Kharybdis and Dreadclaw pair as I like the higher positioning of aircraft, nothing worse then playing with flyers who are literally at the same level as some low ruins. Drilled into the Kharybdis underside where the normal flight stand goes and sleeved it with a 1/2" brass connector, this also allowed me to tilt the angle of the Claw so it looks like it is properly descending instead of flying parallel to the ground. One Dreadclaw is also finished up and sleeved.
I am just finishing up the press-mould wings sections for my Jetbike riders who will then get primered, and a made a start on the Javelins last night. Just waiting on some clear acrylic rods so I can make sturdier stands for all the Jetbikes and possibly change angles and heights etc to make them look less monotonous.
Edit: Oh and I forgot to put a pic up of my finished Tale of Painters army, which is relatively small in number but still worth ~1800points. Just need to make some transfers up so I can finish them properly.
