Excellent work.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Looks cool, what Forge World is the yellow? :)

The one issue with it for me is the extra equipment, blankets and wooden boxes don´t really fit for me to semi-robots which can walk for months without stopping to their mission...

Eh -- my head canon here is this being an explorator fleet and Magos who are better left on the rim of the galaxy providing at least some value rather than trying to re-educate them. The stowage is more for the allied Guardsmen and to a lesser extent the Primaris who are also part of the combined force. I imagine over time guardsmen would take advantage of big metal walkers to carry any extra or looted gear.

All in all an excuse to paint loads of battle and wear damage, add stowage because I like the way it looks msn-wink.gif Rule of cool in this case for me.

Rule of cool is "cool" of course. ;)

Nice yellow, and is that whip aerial standard or added on? Very cool model, been eyeing one, myself. The lenses look nice, to boot.

 

I, too, have a comment regarding the extra equipment. It's cool that it's there, but it all seems very flat compared to the rest of the model. Could just be the lighting, but I think the box in particular could do with some extra shading and highlighting.

It's a secret to everybody.

Aerial is added on -- its meant for a more traditional tank kit. I was thinking of doing something more custom but I had spent more time on this model than expected already.

 

Also yeah you caught me -- the stowage probably needs another run at some shading etc; touchups for down the road once my mind is cleared of this model a bit.
