Thanks :)

The Ravenwing strength currently stands at:

Sammi on jetbike
Chaplain, Librarian and techmarine on bikes
5 man Command Squad
2 Bike squadrons with 6 bikers, 1 attack bike and a Landspeeder
A 3 man bike squad
2 Landspeeder Typhoons
AND a Stormraven.

Image

Total of 23 bikers, 2 attack bikes, 4 Landspeeders and the Raven.

In the painting queue are enough bikers for a Ravenwing Company but I am short on Landspeeders.

If I ever get around to painting all the DA figures I would end up with a full 4th Company, about half of another Greenwing Company, a full Ravenwing Company and about 3/4 of a Deathwing Company.

I must stop being tempted by Ebay :::(

Excuse me if I seem a little bit distracted with all things tau at the moment as I have an ongoing project over on Bolter and Chainsword.

Magnetised Landraider Ares/Crusader/Redeemer ;)

The Landraider is now complete. It is magnetised so with very little effort I can swap between an Ares/Crusader/Redeemer as the mood takes me.

The WIP link is in my post above.

Back to Tau with a Barracuda next :evil:

Great utility vehicle! I try to do the same thing with all of my tanks too but not to such a degree. Making the front panel interchangeable is impressive.

Thanks for the kind words guys - unfortunately (or not, depending on your point of view ;)) the DA will be taking a break while I do some catch up with my Tau air caste.

I have a Barracuda in progress and this will be followed with a Sun/Razorshark (magnetised of course).

The next planned DA model will be an up-armoured command Rhino/Razorback but that will be in Feb/Mar.

Work has started on the up-armoured Rhino/Razorback

Basically it is a standard Rhino chassis with the Vindicator top and side armour trimmed a little. The top has had the grill section cut out and enlarged and the hatch from the Rhino has been trimmed to fit. The headlights have been repositioned and a Crusader frag assault launcher has been cut up and glued on. Some wire antennas and some extra bling has also been added.



Still need to do a lot of the fine work and greenstuffing.

Here is the start of the dismounted Ravenwing Black Ops.

And after 2 nights painting in between waiting for the glue on the Rhino to dry...

The quick fluff is that these have had to dismount to conduct a long range recon due to the terrain being impassable by their machine steeds. They act as a DA tactical Squad or can be used as HH DA.

They still need a bit more personalisation and weathering but I will do that when they are fully assembled.

Very cool looking squad.
