Heh, missile color was a big deal to me when I started my Raven Guard. I decided on green because that's the green I used on my Raptors.

Interestingly enough, I looked over my painted collection and found there is not a lot of red ^_^

Vows updated!

 

This week is THE week for completions and we still have another day left (depending on what calendar you use ;) ).

 

duz_ and Damo1701 are tied for most completions so far.  But there can be only one! :lol:  Not really, this is for fun so the mst you can squeeze out, the better for you and the Chapter :tu:  But seriously, there can be only one.

 

(no.gif)

 

(:yes:)

 

(:no:)

 

There is still time for first completions to get in before the month ends so get brush to paint to gear!

I don't actually have any more vehicles that need doing (for my Ravenguard) however, I suppose I could steal the last Razorback that is supposed to go to my Imperial Fists...  Hmm, I'll have to think.

Very good stuff in this thread! The digital/urban camo schemes have really caught my eye.

 

Any where that does a good tutorial on doing a digital scheme?

Land speeder typhoon done,

(i'm going with the idea of that guy from the last months white Dwarf (James Littler?) where he did his army to tabletop and then wen't back and added detail over time when he could,it makes getting your army basically done quicker whilst not skimping on quality)

 

so its done to a very basic lvl -

++ EDIT ++ Next vow will be either a Land Speeder Storm or  Drop Pod, will update when confirmed.

For those who are curious, the turret is made from:
 
1) 32mmx3mm MDF base
2) Stormraven front landing gear leg
3) Stormtalon assault cannons
4) Leman Russ sponson top and bottom
5) Misc tiny bits to add to the effect

No more vehicles = no excuses! :lol:

Seriously, there are plenty :P

Lmfao.

Unfortunately, I've exhausted my funds.

Ideas to expand my Ravens - 3 predator Annihilators - some decent anti-armour punch there, though expensive, 4 razorbacks, for tactical squads, 3 drop pods, 1 for Sternguard when not in a Raven, and 2 for the Contemptors, again, when not in a Raven.

However, I have a feeling the event will be over before I get the opportunity to get any of them.

Vow #2 1st update....

 

So after completing my first vow on Saturday afternoon/ evening, I took Sunday off to go paintballing. After work yesterday I sat down to start working on my Dreadnought for my 2nd Vow.

 

 

Spoiler

 

I thought would take a break for a little bit and come back to it the next day (today) but with it raining here I went back to work on it.

Ah, the "Rifleman" Dreadnought :tu:

 

It always looks good in any color, but seems perfect for the Raptors.

First up, my land speeder. I decided to make all my land speeders of the Typhoon variety, as I like having the ability to outrange things that scare them. I also decided that the missile launcher housings would be painted in the color of the company they are assigned to, in this case the 3rd. 

 

IMG 20170301 011001
 
Next up, my Contemptor. 
 
I saw the pattern running over the front of it and thought it would look cool picked out in white, which I don't recall seeing anyone do before. I'm going to take my time on this one, as it will be the centerpiece of my army. I have plans to have him casually stepping on a dead Chaos marine on his base, but I don't know how well that's going to turn out.
 
And, yes, that is a real rock on the base. Which I now have to paint to look like a.....rock. Didn't think that through very well. 
 
IMG 20170301 010654
 
I have a Stormraven mostly built and primed that is stalled while I try to decide between lascannons or assault cannons on the turret. I might say screw it and get a whole second turret to swap out as the whim strikes.
