Sorry for double post.

Will there be a Masochist award for assembling a large resin and plastic kit?

:P

@Colonel Bindoff- You could set up both here in RG and the WIP. You're likely to get more eyes in the WIP if that's what you want.

You could also link your log into your sig, so no matter where you go, you are leaving opportunities for traffic. That's what I did ^_^

Do you, by any chance, mean a StormEagle? sweat.gif

I think I'll be spending the weekend I was originally going to be playing in the tournament on building my Raptor and Tempests instead.

My vow will probably be those 3 and my last Scout squad once I decide between bolts and buckshot.

As far as I've heard, the fire raptor isn't as bad to assemble as the storm eagle. Which doesn't mean much, as there is lots of room to improve.

 

And yeah, I've started stacking built models too. A sniper squad, a few tacticals, and let's see what the next weeks bring.

I'm waiting for 8th so I know the stats for shotguns before I even cut the last squad off the sprues.

I still have 80% of a Sternguard squad to finish too.

A good thing tacs only have few special weapons to choose from (build all, then build bolters), and sergeants can easily be magnetized.

I have some vehicles (5 I think), sternguard and debating on if i want to bolster my 5 man bolter/ missile launcher scout squads to 10 man (one 5 man squad won't count since it has been started to be painted)

A shame I'll have to assemble an HQ until next week's campaign kickoff, so my captain won't do for this challenge.

 

Now back to the important stuff: Does anyone know a head/sprue that has the Race Bannon haircut? whistling.gif

I am going to be using a strenguard head...

Spoiler

 

top row last one

 

but this one may work too

 

Spoiler

 

 

bottom row second one

 

But my question is should I do him in camo or not.......Love that about the raptors I can paint them up in camo patterns.

war009 I've also been thinking about going with that Sternguard head!

wp_ss_20170522_0001_zpsmlhscext.png

This one possibly from the Ravenwing Knights kit, with a little GS added?

wp_ss_20170522_0002_zpslccswllh.png

Or maybe this one from the Deathwatch box....

wp_ss_20170522_0003_zpsd0n1lbeg.png

I've got a few ideas, the silver white hair could be an issue due to our geneseed but not a major issue and I can come up with some fluff to explain. Leaning towards a chaplain to represent his mod status. High Chaplain Bannon of The Raptors has a nice ring to it. Either that or a scout sergeant with a disfigured face to represent the time he stripped the paint of some of his gorgeous Raptor minis to repaint as Ravenguard!! 😅 Also fitting as Race has been a long serving member of the board and his wisdom and encouragement befits a scout sergeant, helping many of us negotiate our training here on the B&C

I like that third head. I did use the 1st one for my chaplain and second one for Lias

 

You know Yak, you bring up a good point he did strip his Raptors maybe we make him a mind wiped servitor instead.....you know one with just a ccw so he dies first. tongue.png

 

I have a plan for my Race figure and have all the parts waiting for it to start.....

Truth be told, I saved a Tac Squad, Terminators and a sniper dude from stripping because ... :wub:

I have an Anvil Industry head reserved for Race.

And I found a way around the geneseed issue with his hair.

He's going to be a Death Spectre, who are all albinos.
