Where do you work? I need a job there if you get brought Forgeworld goodies! 😂
I'm a software engineer for a company called QuandaGo, you're welcome to join if you move across the pond. The company could use more 40k enthusiasts!
And it was indeed a very awesome anniversary gift! Other colleagues got things like an overnight stay at a hotel, a nice dinner and tickets to an event for their 10 year anniversaries, but when they contacted my wife to find out what I'd like, she knew the way to my heart was not through my stomach, but by feeding my plastic crack addiction.
You know what they say, a nice dinner is temporary, but a Thunderhawk is forever!
I brought a Thunderhawk about 6 weeks ago and wanted to use the Blood Angels Landraider doors on it but they don't fit even though they are supposed to. The doors are 2mm too big for the kit which is frustrating.
Congratulations on getting one too! I'll definitely keep my eyes peeled for progress on yours! I think you want the Rhino-sized doors for the Thunderhawk (or the models based on the Stormraven) though, Land Raider ones are indeed larger.
Are you going to be doing a base for it?Definitely going to be following your progress on your projects. Everything looks great so far.
Nah, I'm just going to leave it on its landing gear. I'm unlikely to use it in a game as I don't play apocalypse, and because it's so heavy (seriously, it's over 2 kilo of resin!) I'd be very worried about it tipping over and shattering.
So it'll mostly just be a display piece, with the occasional use as scenery. I ordered the Mars Pattern Imperialis Landing Pad tile for my table so it has somewhere pretty to sit.
Those injection ports would make some awesome tank traps....
Indeed they do, and that's exactly what I did for the base of my Deredeo Dreadnought:
Took some inject ports, added bullet holes by making drilling holes in them and then scoring them with a hobby knife. The Aquilas are from the Drop Pod kit.
