Then I guess a regular Proteus will be the order of the day when I get the time, Lamebeard! Maybe put up some wolf flags and whip aerials like Horus's personal Raider from Vengeful Spirit. Aye, if you can hide the bottom of the track that should actually help to save a lot of time and cost.
Land Raiders always have the right of way It's not always about size, it's prestige. "Hey baneblade! You're a mismatched derivative, I'm the real OG." Totally works with plating acting as armoured ceramite and extra armour. And I guess you could snag the frag launhers from the crusader RAider kit and work with stuff like that. But honestly I always wonder now that Sicarans and such are around if we can do partial track guards to try and match them with those series. Totally agreed with using mk IV crew, it I know I did it before and it worked. But the cupola getting stripped down really does help. Looks like the old IG cupola there. No crewmen... heh, slumped over or bailed out, -laughs- admittedly yep, very yep.
Man, Marshal Vespasian, I definitely getcha. Shipping from them even just up north is pricey and basically doubles the cost of the kit. Nice, nice, (Working on Sigismund for a mate's Christmas present and I did Dorn a few times in the past, wicked kits). Alright, so late heresy... I mean, might be a weird question, but considered adding a few small support units in mk VI or VII? You've got one of only 3 legions that really can get away with it, after all. -laughs- it's still pretty unique and no raptor heads needed eh?
The mk IV breachers does fit pretty well with the Imperial Fists, I ended up going more 'chunky' with the regular mk III for my 16th legion boys, but I've often thought about making a 10-strong mk IV honour guard unit for 'VIP guard' duty. That said, word of warning about the Shapeway shields as I've used them for Blood Angels in the past, if they flex and get a crack, they don't just break, they tend to completely shatter. As for chainswords, yeah I felt the same. I'm putting together a Luna Wolf mk III volkite charger squad with close combat weapon and yeah, unless it's a dedicated chainsword assault squad, they're unwieldly. So I used a mix of a few chainswords, some of those mk IV swords which are still stupidly long, then knives and some 2E plastic space marine knives.
Love the idea for the LR, especially the Verdun marking as it's always been kinda under-represented. I regret not doing something like it, but I could never figure out 'where' consistently on vehicles because of the different silhouettes represent it differently. That said, I am having to go with different squadron markings as I'm planning on adding at least that second Raider squadron and maybe a second Predator squadron to the mix. So it's well worth considering all of those markings and such.
heh, have fun with the ski trip! I just get to sit out in the cold of Northern-ish Canada shoveling snow, less fun that way
As for me, Raider is progressing well and jut putting the first coat of varnish on it for chipping the black stripes onto the hull. Hopefully I'll have some good pictures up soon and maaaybe even done in the next few days.
Post Scriptum: And soon, the oil!
Post Scriptum Secundus:
Soon, the powder.... gotta let the oil dry but yaaaaaz.
