You know what I don't look forward to?

Painting another two of these damned things. Seriously, who thought it was a good idea to make a model that's 70% trim?

Thankfully, progress is going along great on my Heldrake. The OSL is done, head is attached and the Lightning on the body is getting blocked out. Also in the second picture you can see the way I've got to secure the wings now, as I've modified this Heldrake to look more like a small fighter jet.

 

 

The best jump packs ever. How are you gonna duplicate them? 

Simple: Gonna mold and cast them laugh.png

Fair enough. biggrin.png I was curious because after one of my gaming buddies did a few casts I'm looking into doing it myself with blue stuff moulds. 

See, I was thinking of that, but I've heard Blue Stuff moulds are a bit of an issue when it comes to making really good casts. I'll post results once I'm able to actually..... Make them laugh.png

 

 

 

Edit: Finished the Heldrake:

Also really proud of the base:

Got some Warp Talons nearly done today:

Sadly, I can't fully finish them until after GW opens back up.... Because they re-routed both of my orders back to Memphis because of the shutdown of their stores until April 14th at the earliest down.gif.

 

So this is how finished these five will be until April 22nd at the earliest....

Well, since I can't do my Night Lords now because of the WuFlu thing, I'm back to working on my favorites.

 

Time to continue on my Dark Angels. Got the 10 Cataphractii primed and ready:

I heard you, and here's a comment to keep this thread going. 

If we want this to be a forum we should invest in discours, people! 

I'm liking the Jet-drake - smart move getting rig of the neck - and that base is gorgous. Keep up the good work!

Hear hear! :P

And thank you! I was more proud of the base than the model itself, who would have thought.... :lol:

In other news, two 5-man Cataphractii squads are now done for my Dark Angels:

Can't base them because I dont have any more Sector Imperialis 40mm bases, and GW isn't open for another week at the earliest. :P

Those Cataphractii look awesome. The Dark Angels Heresy scheme is so crisp and sleek. They're definitely one of the top ones I'm thinking about if I get into HH.

I agree that Cataphractii turned out really good - 1st Legion colour scheme is really works for them. It's simple, but it makes them look huge and menacing. I'm missing a bit of  individuality among the models as would befit the users of Catphractii suits, but the unit feel is definitely there. Good job!

Those are nice Cataphractii and you've made the shoulder pads work. I agree with Frater Majkhel about the lack of individuality, maybe some heraldry on the kneepads would add more character to the individuals. As it is, they are a gorgeous unit! 


Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Thanks! Cataphractii is honestly my favorite of the three Marine terminator armour marks.

Thanks! And yeah, they need some more individuality touches, but I'm gonna wait until I have more done.

Thanks! I'll be adding heraldry once book 9 comes out, so I can reference it to make sure my heraldry isn't incorrect :lol:

In other news, I've gotten some priming done because hey, we've finally had decent weather over here in "the most spastic weather in the United States (and possibly the world?)" New England :lol:

What you see in the first picture is all of my Ravenwing, barring two Attack Bikes, Ravenwing Apothecary, Librarian on Bike, Ravenwing Ancient, Interrogator-Chaplain on Bike, Dark Shroud, Talonmaster and Dark Talon. So in that box in total that's: 21 Ravenwing Bikers, 6 Black Knights, a Land Speeder, Ravenwing Champion and Sammael on Sableclaw

 

The second is 10 more Hellblasters. The other 10 have to wait until I get more shoulder pads to prime them.

How about the Grandmaster of the Ravenwing (and co-pilot)?

I've gotten Sammael and his co-pilot (hereby named Rhamiel) nearly done:

Just have to do some highlighting on some areas, as well as finish the book and assault cannon sponsons. The twin heavy bolter is off-picture currently drying from a wash.

The Dark Angels and their ride are well-painted. Hope to see the completed model soon.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Sammael and Rhamiel look cracking, the latter in particular has a really characterful head. Nice choice to use the Javelin as a base model.

Thanks! I'll have it finished by tonight after I get home from work.

I mean, have you seen the Lion's gorgeous mane? Only Sanguinius has better hair than him :lol:

Thanks! I saw that head in the Stormcast Eternals set and knew it needed to be on a biker character. Decided it'd be perfect on Sammael's gunner on Sableclaw.

 

In other news, barring the book and some detail work, Sammael on Sableclaw is completed:

Very good! I'm surprised the gunner isn't wearing the white robes that ID Dark Angels Inner Circle members, though; considering he'll likely be VERY CLOSE to Sammael when the latter sees/hear something that should be kept secret from all outside the Inner Circle, he should be someone who can be trusted to keep his mouth shut. (Killing your own men to keep a secret is a VERY STUPID thing to do, as the most likely beneficiary of this habit will be your enemies.)

Handsome flyer. What are you thinking for basing?

 

By the way, is Rhamiel named in the Dark Angels codex? I've searched for Sammael's gunner's name but not much has come up.
