Finally I have just finished three drop pods that have taken me the best part of two months to complete. These new orbital insertion vehicles will be dropping my Flesh Tearers Space Marines exactly where they need to be.... right in the heart of the enemy force. Whilst it’s taken comparatively ages for me to assemble and paint these models they have actually been in my plastic pile for 14 years!! Agh.

Overall I really haven’t enjoyed these models; they are laborious to paint; a nightmare to assemble and overly fragile; in fact this isn’t least favourite modelling project of recent years! That being said I am happy that they are now complete and I look forward to dropping them right into my mate’s deployment area next time we play.

There’s a little bit more detail on my blog:

Excellent work there brotherthumbsup.gif I've a soft spot for Seth and his wild boys, so it's always good to see them get some love. 14 years eh?...… now I don't feel so bad with some of my projects sitting inactive for a mere decadebiggrin.png Drop pods are my favorite transport but they are a real pain to build and paint. The effort you put into yours really shows. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent works.

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.

Cheers guys!!

Yeah 14 years they’ve been waiting to be painted... and there are some other models in my collection that have waited even longer.
