Thanks Fist, the board took a while and I'm quite proud of it. The detailing of the homemade titan has been intimidating me but I'll get to it eventually.
Finally got a weekend off and spent most of it in Washington DC with the family, but I still managed to get some work done on the army. So what exactly did I get done?
I Built 3 Black Knights, Dark Shroud +AC, started on the DA Battleforce by building a Biker and a Landspeeder with HF and AC, and built my Command Land Raider. I'm running out of stuff to build with only 5 more Bikers, an attack bike, a drop pod, a tactical squad, and a terminator squad. Comparatively that's not much left.
I painted the inside for what reason, I don't know since it'll never really be seen. Overall though I was going for a very monastic, mystic feel to the land raider. I was going to go with a Crusader but I only ever run my terminators in 5 man squads with 1 IC so there was no need for the extra carrying space and I love the idea of the purifying fires of the Redeemer so I went with it. I'll probably go with some owl freehand and lots of script on it as well.
Here you can see in the back corner where I really struggled to get the super glue and land raider to work with me. Probably end up filing it down then come over it with brush on primer. I hope in the end it looks okay.
I also started playing with paint schemes for the tactical marines within my army as well. I went out, bought some P3 Beaten Purple, slapped it on, and I like it.
Still needs shading/highlighting but overall the color is good.
This is what I'm thinking they'll look like.
Overall I had a great weekend. I'm happy with the progress I've made but I need to pick up the pace to get my army completed in time for the game. Hopefully now that I've narrowed down my plan I can get the great mechanical assembly line process in order and crank out an army. Luckily after my titan purchase I've been put on a relative spending freeze so I shouldn't have to worry about my army growing much more at least for a little while. The next adventure will be the gaming table and I'm looking forward to it so much that I hope it gives me the motivation to knock out painting over 100 infantry troops, 10 or so vehicles, 15+ bikers and two titans. As always thanks for reading/looking, hope you enjoyed my mini update and if you have any suggestions or comments feel free to leave them (I enjoy them).
