My baneblade, which I picked up two days ago. I couldn't resist pouring my weekend into painting it. I've named it "Our Lady Deliverance" after it basically won me the Apocalypse Tournament here on saturday (despite it being unpainted, it was one of those things where we were going to overlook that since it was the release tournament and the store wanted people to use the biggest things they had.) and blew two Raiders with an Archon and retinue of Incubi each apart in one fell swoop, saving my exposed left flank from what was going to essentially be an unstoppable assault. To top it all off, I found out after that little problem crashed and burned that one of those Archons was packing a vortex grenade.

They're a pain in the bum to put together. I actually wasn't going to get one immediately, but I had the cash, and the coupon from the Gamer's Edition of Apocalypse was only good this weekend... and even though it only covered the tax on the model ultimately, a penny saved on 40k is a penny that ultimately goes towards another Space Marine. The treads are a little outrageous to get to line up properly because of how the wheel assembly goes together.

Looks awesome tho' man!

And, as you say, it won you the tourney.

Worth the effort from where I'm sitting (mostly because all I have to do is look at it, drooling slightly).

Very nice mate. Very urban dirty looking. Really like the red on the side, like Wraith said - simple yet effective.

looks cool. did you water down the paints for this?
Nope. I drybrushed the entire thing, with the exception of the rivets, which I picked out in brass individually. Don't really need all that much foundation paint to drybrush something this big, either-- I think I did something like four passes with Adeptus Battlegrey, two with Astronomician, and one with a mix of boltgun metal and Reaper Shadowed Steel (which has a slightly blue tint to it, which goes well with the slightly blue tint of Astronomician Grey.) Admittedly, some of the rivets ended up silver after the very light metallic drybrush after the rest of the tank was done, but the general effect is still there, I think.

That is insanely cool, even for a baneblade, and gets my highest rating so far: 9.3/10 :biggrin::grin::biggrin:
