Well done.

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.

Well done.

 Thanks!

 

 

Turns out today was a productive one and with a few hours work the Razorback is almost done. Needs some touch ups, wearing, wash on the tracks and varnish (is the GW spray can decent?) and it should be there.

 

C&C appreciated:

The Razorback is well done. Is the red turret meant to identify the tank as a Veteran Company transport, the way a red helmet identifies a Veteran SGT?

I hadn't thought of that! Chose the red A. to break up all the blue and B. as a homage to this.

 

The Razroback itself is now finished! As you can see below (more photos here).

And next on my list is this. Hipster Cato Sicarius!

Good job on the Razorback. All those little honor markings and unit identifiers can't be easy to apply.

Thanks! Yeah...there was quite a lot of swearing, especially as I applied them just with water. No varnish or Microsol/set :/

Man, those old Razorbacks are certainly something... brings back memories. Lovely work on it.

For the stones laid by our ancestors, we stand. For the days that have passed and the days that shall come, we stand.
For the living and the honour of the dead, we stand.

Nice to see one of these! I actually still have an old Razorback in my retro Space Wulves collection. They are far too badly painted to photograph but one of my long term projects is to gradually repaint them. I've got a bunch of metal Wolf Guard Termies, a squad of Grey Hunters and the old Njall Stormcaller.

 

I also had one of the old all-plastic Predators in Space Wolves colours as well as an Imperial Hellhound, but they were in the big box of minis I threw away in a moment of madness.

That box also had my Necromunda Gang, my Blood Bowl teams, some other Space Wolves and other bits I don't want to think about too much.

No school like the old school. I'm a real sucker for projects like this and you've certainly honoured that Razorback well with your painting, very nice work.

 

Look forward to seeing what you do with Sicarius.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Thanks mate. Getting to put some proper work on it has made me very nostalgic and also sad that I haven't kept more models from that era...

Cheers! I actually have the old metal SW dreadnought and the 3/4th Ed Wolf Priest which, motivation permitting, I am planning to crack on with once the Smurfs are all done.

Appreciate that Doghouse! Really enjoyed painting it tbh and gave me a nice boost when it was all finished off.

Just a brief update on Sicarius here, with apologies for the low picture quality. I've spent some time laying down base colours and applied the armour highlight and at this stage I've learnt that there is enough of the model painted to see where I may have missed details and made mistakes.

 

Next step is to tidy up those, and the highlights, before moving on to layering lighter colours and washes.

 

Would appreciate thoughts, especially on the gem stones, which I've used Bloodletter Glaze on, over a base layer of Mephiston Red with a small line/dot of white applied over the top.

Couple of quick WiP updates - using my phone rather than SLR - of Sicarius and something else a little special:

Currently on the final rush through to finish my Loyalty & Treachery minis. Luckily, they include my old plastic Rhino so here are a couple of 'very nearly finished' WIP shots:

OOP Rhino Finished

Hopefully the next things on the list won't take quite so long...
