Time for a quick update...
I've finished the 5 vehicles I was working on. 3 Razorbacks/Rhinos, a Landraider and a Drop Pod.
I've been using a few of the new paints and overall I think the gold is a big, and much needed, leap forward for GW's range of metallics.
The Nuln Oil is no different to Badab Black. I had been told it had a small amount of brown in there, which I would have liked, but it doiesn't, it's just black.
The new 'Ard Coat looks very different to the old. And be warned, apparently the Lahmian Median doesn't like the old 'Ard Coat, giving it a frosty finish if used, so I didn't dare try that out while I still had some of the only varnish to use.
Ok, on to the minis...
The Razorbacks are as they are. I got these from Jangalak (thanks man) and repainted them. I plan on getting some more Ass Cannons in the near future, but for now they have the loadouts Jangalak already stuck together, a mixture of lascannon and HB. I'm happy with them...
Then there's the drop pod. Again I got this from Jangalak so I used it as is, with a storm bolter. This is actually a blessing as my existing DP has a missile launcher so it was good to have one of each.
Lastly is the Landraider. I already have a Crusader and planned on getting another but then thought I'd get a normal LR as I've never actually owned one. The smaller troop capacity isn't a problem as I rarely fill the Crusader to the brim anyway... so lets see what this badboy can do in games
I have painted a fang motiff on the hatch, filing away the Aquilla and making the teeth look similar to those on my Dreadnaught. I like it but I must admit I'm still a bit unsure as to weather it looks good. Comments?
on a couple of the tanks I re-sused the Thunderwolf shilds with some wolf tails, in a similar manner to the White Scars bikers. I think it looks pretty good
And finally, a shot of all of my tanks. I must have enough to transport the whole great company now I think. It's a real feat for me to have nearly completed a whole great company and I can say that in 18 years of playing I have never owned so many tanks, so it is pretty satisfying to see them all together. More bikes are needed though I think
I also noted that although Landraiders seem big when you are putting them together, they always look small next to teh Shadowsword
Comments welcome as usual and thanks in advance.
At the moment the main army is a bit on hold while I work on my mini for the national hero painting comp tomorrow, my Armies on Parade board and a diarama for Games Day. Yes, I'm actually going to enter a mini into Golden Daemon... nothing ventured nothing gained...
