Dry brushing rocks to make them more rock-like. Sometimes I pause and think we're all crazy. Then I pick up my landspeeder, make zooming noises and multi-melta my tea.

I'd go with assault cannons personally because of the higher shot volume in case of jinks. Did you go melta on the front? There's always magnets if you like that sort of thing.

Yep, front is melta. I considered Typhoon launchers, but decided against it.

I was leaning toward assault cannons, actually. They can penetrate a Land Raider if you get lucky and roll a 6 for armor penetration.

I think they're way more reliable for anti air duty as well. Melta remains my first choice for land raiders and their ilk. But assault cannons are brilliant against transports, light armour etc, and POTMS helps pick and choose targets. I mean, what's not to love about the storm raven?

Magnetise it?

I did that with a Grey Knights one.  Works quite well.  The worst part is getting the magnets to fit in the nose part.

Finally found time to crack on with my vow!

 

WIP shot of the Contemptor, just need to finish building his chain fist arm and a little bit more work on the base, then he's ready for some undercoating.

I, Damo1701, for the Ravenguard, vow to complete A Drop Pod by 11:59 PM on April 15, 2017.

 

I would add pics, but we know what a Drop Pod on Sprue looks like.  Purchased it at 12:03PM today...

 

Now the fun begins!

Nice Contemptor indeed!  Never underestimate the power of the Heavy Bolter!

 

Damo, hate to be a stickler, but before and after pics are needed.  In fact, I need to check on everyone's pledge in that regard sweat.gif

Not entirely sure what I want to do next with it, so I'll let it sit as completed until I decide how and what should be next.  If anybody asks, It's new in the launch rails...  Awaiting its first deployment.

Very sharp. I like the red trim--no point in a drop pod being stealthy (like white is stealthy anyway).

Vow complete.  I now understand why people hate painting drop pods.  It's painting the exact same thing five times. Paint then twist, paint then twist.  

 

Still, the Knights are becoming a viable force now.  Just twenty devastators, ten tacticals, my honour guard, a librarian, a chaplain and ten more assault marines to go....
