Wow, impressive I have to say.

Although the Dark Angels aren't my favorite chapter, this is a really fine army. I like to watch the pictures!

Superb stuff. As a Ravenwing player myself, it's nice to see someone else's army (read: someone else's *completely painted* Ravenwing!).

I really must get started on my guys before they take umbrage at being forgotten about for so long.

I have to apologise first - this is photo heavy ;)

I feel like a very proud dad showing off photos of his first born child :D


Sammael, Master of the Ravenwing

Photos now on the next post.

Now - the more eagle eyed amongst you may be able to spot at least 2 non-Sammael parts - answer on a postcard to......

There where some minor bubbles which I did not notice till it was too late but I think I hid them well.
Overall I was impressed with the detail and quality.




My parcel arrived today - the work on The Armoury begins

Image



Also got some "pimp my Veterans" shields

Image

I promise I will get back to my Tau soon!

Back to the painting corner :::(

Wow. That is an impressively painted army. I particularly like your job on Sammael - he looks great!

Having noticed that you only began painting this army in 2010, and seeing it at this standard, you've inspired me to start knuckling down on my own Tau army! I started it in the same year, and I've only finished a handful of units. In fact, I'm heading to my work bench to plow through another few Fire Warriors right now. :eek:

Aun Tier -
I'm heading to my work bench to plow through another few Fire Warriors right now.


Good luck - it's hard work to keep yourself motivated to churn out masses of figures but it is worth it. The secret for me was to keep swapping between different unit types. 100 PA Marines in one sitting would make me go mad :::(


Here is my next completed project....

A Ravenwing Landspeeder Storm with Ravenwing PA crew and 5 Scouts from 2nd Squad, 10th Company.

I have done a few conversions:

The pilot and gunner use 2 sets of biker legs. The pilots left arm has had the hand turned 90° to grip the joystick and the gunners arms are from a vehicle crewman.

I had to play around with the positioning of the scouts in the rear compartment as with this conversion I had to fit 5 in the back instead of the 4 it was designed for.

Magnets have been drilled into the scouts feet/LS chassis and the bases to allow them to dismount and be used as normal scouts.
Using the PA figures freed up the driver who now has a shotgun in the picture so I get 6 scouts instead of the normal 5 :lol:

The pictures with the scouts remind me of the Keystone Kops!!!

Excuse some of the photos as the camera is playing up at the moment.

The scouts being able to detach from the storm is great. I love little things like this. I was too lazy to do it but I commend you. The landraider looks great and the cream colour came out well. The custom doors also fit the dark angels really well (cowels help). Anyway nice stuff.

Gotta say, I love the detail on that speeder and that Storm Raven is the first time I've liked that model.

Thanks guys :D

The ETL vow on B&C is taking up all my time at the moment-

2 packs of 5 CC Deathwing in progress
Planned: 2 x 5 man veteran squads
and we will see where I go from this, the competition closes on 15 Aug.

After that I WILL be giving my little blue men some attention. :fear:

A bit quiet on here - hey-ho I suppose I deserve that as an enemy of the Greater Good (at the moment :roll: )

The line breaker squadron is now complete

And here they are as an Armoury group shot - Enemies beware the claws of the Lion

Beautiful models all. Those three Vin's will look fantastic across the board, and probably make your opponent feel ashamed at his own army :dead:
If I may ask, why did you pick the numbers you did for your linebreaker squad? they go 10, 6, 9. Was there a reason or just happened to be the numbers you grabbed?

Keep up the awesome work!
