2x Forgeworld Lucius Pattern Drop Pods

2x Forgeworld Lucius Pattern Dreadnought Drop Pods

I just finished airbrushing the atmospheric ‘burn’ on the two ForgeWorld Lucius Pattern Dreadnought Drop Pods tonight. It’s difficult to tell from the picture because the standard drop pod isn’t there for size reference…but they are huge!

Excuses: I didn’t have a large enough back-drop to show one closed and one expanded like i’d like…and just moved my little light-box photo studio and don’t have the lighting like I like it yet… so I’m not supra happy with the pictures but am very happy with the models themselves.

  • The main external metallic is Alclad II golden titanium over gloss black.
  • The internal metallic is Alcad II steel with some dry-brushed mithril silver highlights.
  • The red is Createx Wicked Crimson over primer gray and black shadows.
  • The atmospheric burn is Alclad II jet exhaust.
  • Throw in a few Reaper MSP paints on the details and that’s it!

Blood Angels Land Raider Redeemer

Blood Angels Land Raider Redeemer

Finally finished up a land raider redeemer today. Of course photographed with a macro lens I see all kinds of things I want to change. :/

I had primed it and painted the base red shade months ago… and in the time it had set the front doors ‘froze’ in place. When I forced the door open the plastic hinge actually twisted off. So… I had to drill it out and replace it with a brass rod. Unfortunately, it doesn’t completely close now.

I also switched to a different color scheme for the forgeworld land raider doors… went to ‘black’ wings and I’m really happy with how they turned out. I could do more work on the comms relay metallic, the ‘burn metal’ on the flamer sponsors… Generally I’m happy with it and will move on to my next projects (2x Lucius pattern drop pods, a whirlwind, assault terminators, 2x Warmachine Hunters, Astorath the grim…ug, have too many projects going on right now!)

Game 3: 1250 Blood Angels & Tau vs. Chaos & Eldar

Warhammer 40k game 3


My parter was a Tau player, Will. Opponents were Mark (Eldar) & Mike (Chaos Space Marines).

We lost the roll to decide who chooses deployment order, our opponents went first. It was interesting… we rolled off TWICE with both sides rolling snake eyes, finally on the third roll of there was another 1 (us) and a 5 (them).

We got hit HARD with an alpha strike. I lost my vindicator and my dreadnought at the very top of turn 1… which meant that 15% of my army didn’t do anything before dying. I also choose to deep strike my two assault squads… so there weren’t a lot of models on the table in turn 1 which meant we soaked up a bunch of pain right off the bat.

Time to rethink my list, moving away from a DOA strategy… maybe mechanized assault.
