Default Starting in the Razorbacks...

...and now we move onto the Razorbacks...

Here's the first attempt on the internal control console. Plenty of mistakes on it, for one the coating on the screens need to be thinner and smoother, but it simply gives me more room for improvements on the next two to be done!

Any comments or suggestions greatly appreciated!

Default Magnetised Razorback

Okay, here's the latest update on what I've managed to sort out with our Razorback (the first of 3, possibly 4, more Rhino-based vehicles for the Space Wolves).

First off is simply the use of the Forge World Space Wolves themed Rhino doors and front together with the additional Reinforced Armour conversion. That was the original plan until I received the kit...

The front panel was a simple and direct swap with the original plane panel... easy.




The side doors were another story altogether! Unfortunately the wolf-themed doors were only detailed on one side with the wolf head but the reverse side did not have the grated floor panels like the original doors!!! Since I was going to hinge the doors, I wanted the details on the reverse side as well so that left me with no choice but to cut out the wolf head detail from the Forge World doors, sand away the thickness of the actual door to only leave the wolf head detail and glue these onto the original Rhino/Razorback doors! Here are the final results...





All this so that I could open up and still have the side door floor grating details showing...




Then came the magnetising of the rest of the components (after much online "research"), namely:

1. The main turret to allow it to rotate but not fall off...





2. Inter-changeable weapon options between the Lascannon and Heavy Bolters...
(still working on ideas for the Lascannon & Twin-linked Plasma Gun configuration though!)





3. Inter-changeable front mini-turrets for the tank driver/gunner and Storm Bolter/Hunter Missile options and also detachable searchlight and radar options...



4. Detachable Forge World Dozer Blade option...




So that's the last week's evening efforts... now to repeat it all again for the second Razorback (for the second Long Fang pack), the Whirlwind and possibly two extra Rhinos (for the two Hunter packs). Hopefully these will be a quicker process after this first "Trial & Error" exercise!

Default Wolf Guard Terminators

Here's the current status of our wolves... Haven't gotten any further with the Razorbacks on the building or painting front as the daughter and I been playing on our dining table to get used to the rules and tactics with the various Hunters, Long Fangs plus Aegis/Quad-gun and Thunderwolf Cavalry units.

However, I did manage to start on the next unit set... the Wolf Guard Terminators. The plan is to have a total of 10 Termis, initially only using 8 to fit into a Land Raider Crusader but eventually all 10 to fit into the Assault Ram (when I get round to building/painting it).

So this is what I've managed so far:

Based-coated Termis x5


First completed Termi


Any comments or ideas to improve this is always welcomed.
