Updated banner image because I found something more fitting (while not learning anything new to make it more awesome).

Today I made the preparations for the decal work.  The guns got glued on and I am seriously out of practice or my patience has shortened with age ... or temporal experience.

 

Without rain, I predict being about 3-4 hours away from completion because I totally forgot about the Mechanicus symbol in the rear. There is also some touch-up work to be done.

Finally got the gaps green stuffed, sanded and smoothed. Started building the white layers and did some base shading on the black. Its getting there, just slowly. Probably another 10 hrs or more of painting before final assembly.

Looking good! :tu:

The gaps on the model are horrendous! I dont know how they let it through tbh they'd been doing such a high quality job recently!

You are not kidding. I toyed with the idea of doing an LED kit inside and fleshing out the interior with some detailing but when I put a LED tea light in there the amount and light spill was more than I was willing to tackle. Around the engine block, the open view slots on the front, and all along the strut work for the grav plates on both sides. You almost have to build a plasticard box INSIDE the walls to seal some of them. Wasn't worth the headache to even start to tackle so I settled for green stuffing the armor plates down each side to be smooth and continuous and called it a day.

As seen here in more detail:  Land Raider Terminus Umbra "Bolo".  Although I did not vow for this event, I wanted to share here as it was fitting (I think) ^_^

Tanks for the inspiration, Race.

Also, I'm angry with myself. Should have bought an Achilles when I had the chance. I just recently learned it's been discontinued :(

Never been a fan of that pattern tbh. Although I really did like the track plates. I'm confident you could make one for less cost ^_^

Well gang, NiceGuyAdi made this several days ago.  It is for the badge image to this event.  The scaled version will be on the first post for use in your sigs. 

 

Thank you NiceGuyAdi!  It was a last month request and you came through for us.

Is that symbol supposed to represent an autocannon shell?
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.

Sure.  maybe as a stereo-typical symbol of tank ammunition ^_^

Now I can go back to painting infantry. Vowed the rhino before going the all infantry route, but this way at least I got it finished.

Race, tonight I played my first game since the Blood Angel's Codex dropped with my Raven Guard, and won a resounding victory.

 

To celebrate, I bought myself a new Predator since I don't have one for my RG.

 

Can I pledge that? I didn't see it on the list but thought it might be a mistake. If not, can I pledge it as a Dedicated Transport (Rhino) instead (since I magnetize all my stuffs anyway).

Ok Race, here we go.  You'll note pic 3 has the today's date in the background.

 

As a nod to War009, for allowing me to enter the contest without a proper tank, I've gone the extra mile and drilled out/magnetized everything. You can see the sponsoons are magnetized, 1 hatch is magnetized for the HKM, and the main turret is magnetized to allow for different configurations.  Also, my heavy bolter gun barrels are drilled out, as are the exhaust vents.  So this one customizable STC pattern Predator for you baby!
