Achilles possibly incoming.

I'll keep you posted.


False alarm. I have other stuff that takes priority. Gotta get stuff for my current planned list, like autocannon arms for my VenDreads.

Given work at the moment (just back from 2 weeks in the Gambia).....I unfortunately am going to have to give this challenge a miss and save the Stormeagle for a flyer challenge later in the year :(

 
I think we were discussing a flyer one next so you are good. 
 
 

At least the stalker gun is done, needed that on a game. No further progress on the rhino, trying to finish a half-painted squad before converting custodes primaris jetbikes.

Excellent. That'll give me time to decide between an Interceptor-X or a couple Stormtalons to fill out the Brigade. :)

PS: Primaris Jetbikes = SM Bikes?
Hope is a moment now long past, the Shadow of Death is the one I cast

PS: Primaris Jetbikes = SM Bikes?

Probably just play them as custodes jetbikes, fitting the original model. First primaris is converted, quite a lot of cutting involved.

I am slowly making progress, painting this Repulsor is somewhat frustrating I have to admit.
Possibly to do with the million weapon options I decided to magnetise.... 

 

Also my attempt at being trixy didn't work :( Which is also adding to the frustration of painting

Ohwell it must be done for RB! I should at least be able to finish it on time (I hope...)

Brothers, news!

 

As you know, the weather is slowly changing to favor efforts toward the hobby on my side of the planet.  As has been alluded to in various posts, my station is in the basement.  As such, being surrounded by concrete itself underground, the cold penetrated the soul down there.  This prevented me from dedicating time to projects.  BUT NO MORE!  Last night I successfully painted a model without suffering to much.

 

"But Race, why are you posting in this thread versus anywhere else ... like your own thread?  Better yet, why are you telling us much ado about nothing?"

 

Well, I vowed to finish a Land Raider Terminus Ultra during the Hidden Hands of the Emperor event and failed to complete the vow.  With much shame (and some burn-out), I let the massive vehicle sit idle, incomplete.  BUT NO MORE!

 

Although it was in a state that surpassed the qualifications to this event, I am now able to dedicate effort to it's completion.  Much like eating an elephant, if I put small amounts of paint, then over time it will get done.  My goal is to finish it within the time frame of this event ^_^

That's currently how I feel about my Repulsor! However stayed tuned... ;)

Ps. I dont wanna do another one of there again any time soon! They're not the easiest of tanks to put together because of how its designed (ie minimal locking points) and there's a lot of tank to paint!

Good job on the Repulsor, duz_.
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.

This has been a long project in the running.  And by Corax my uber last big tank in 40K.  You can quote me on that too.

That one is on the burner until I get the right parts and inspiration.  I mean, I have the idea, but it's totally not legal and I don't have the parts yet.  Frankly, it's not very RG-themed, it's just my attempt to use up parts :lol:

The repulsor looks nice. Even more options built than I did. Though I'd bet on the antennas not surviving for long, flimsy things... whistling.gif

 

Finally got around to continue the dakkaback, after half a dozen tarantulas. Added a few bitz and finished the sandbags, adding as many infantry bitz as the transportbacks didn't make sense for the part-time AA vehicle. I'll file down the fillings when the milliput is hardened, then it's ready for a basecoat.
