@GrimzagGorwazza : I like the idea of the sponsons but I do agree they are a tad weedy as you put it. Im playing around with some ideas to make them look more beefy and chaosy. Any suggestions would be much appreciated Im considering making them a bit shorter as well. Will keep updating the log as I progress. With regards to the treads, those are awesome. Problem is its going to cost as much as a new baneblade to get them to South Africa so I am stuck making them myself. I am partial to plasticard so will see if I can get something decent made.
@Oldman78 : Thanks for the feedback. As mentioned above I am playing around with ideas to make it look more brutal. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Just my opinion old boy, I just think having the las cannons the way I mentioned would make it have a tidier look like the forgeworld model, I am looking forward to seeing this progress, you have a fondness it seems for chopping stuff up and making it your way

@Oldman78 : Nah I appreciate the comments. Doing it like you said would have been a lot easier I have to admit. I do like adding my own mark to already great models. Like I said in the earlier post, this Baneblade should look like Chaos got their hands on it and converted it to what they needed.

Below is what I am moving towards with the sponsons. Im going to add some chaos insignia on the sides and chains. Always chains

I think if i were to be trying to alter it myself, i'd go down the route of reducing the neight of the actual sponson box which sits between the guns, thereby bringing the two turrets closer together. Maybe even half the height. Currently it's 6 rivets tall, including the trim at top and bottom. I'd reduce it to 4 rivets, the 2 on the trims and 2 in the middle.
That'd bring your weapons closer together and stop people from focussing their gaze between the turrets, at the very tempting hatch target.
The problem with that solution is that you're linking mechanism would need modifying.

Edit: Tentacleeeessssss!!!!!

A year later and the Fellblade is done. Painted as well. I experimented a lot with this model and Im quite happy with how it turned out. Also learnt some new painting techniques so dont be too brutal. Tried out some new stuff that Im going to use on my Renegade Knight titans.

Anyway, here he is Iron warriors fellblade...

That looks awesome. All the hard work paid off!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Thank you Havent thought of a name yet. I dont play as much as I should (at all actually) and I think depending on how it behaves during a game will probably get it a cool name.
