Very cool! I will be bringing two war hammer figures to Nats this year. Queek Head Taker (skaven war lord) and IG Lord Commissar.

Just for laughs, find a picture of a Handley-Paige Hampden and compare the general look of the two aircrafts.

Well, it is the 41st Millenium, all the Warhammer 40k Novels are all written in a British accent :smiley29:

 

Just in case anyone cares, in game terms The Marauder Destroyer sports 3 twin-linked autocannons on the nose , the defense turret is armed with twin-linked heavy bolters, the rear strafing twin-linked assault cannon is run by the bombadier for strafing targets after bombing them. The Marauder Destryer carries 6 200 kilo bombs in the bay, and under the wings are mounts for 8 Hellstrike missles (mine have been ordered from Forge World and will be magnetized on the pylons). Hellstrike missles are a strength 8 weapon with a 72" range on the table (most tables are only 8 feet long)

sorry it took so long to get back. I used the resin one. Nice detail and now I'm working on a zombie dragon.

Actually, looks like something Republic would be building in the future! Sort of what an A-10 would morph into if it went into space....

 

GIL :smiley16:

 

 

Yeah, totally. I kep thinking of it as related to the B-25 but the future of the A-10...:smiley32:

I pinned the wings to the fuselage there in the fuel port (right below the main port) and capped it with bitz boxage.

Awesome, I love the crispness in the detail of the new Finecast. I also got a Zombie Dragon, too cool of a model isnt it? :smiley17:

What a cold-ass Labor day! Broke out a hoodie, it decided it was going to be fall NOW. Plenty of time for the masking madness.

Dave,

 

I'm not usually into sci-fi stuff, but this one I really like. Great job. Looks mean as hell. Question are those invasion strips? As for this labor day weekend. Well it sucked. Rain, rain an more rain. Just what we needed up here in Vermont. Right!!!

Yes sir, those are invasion stripes. I am a huge fan of this sci-fi in particular because of it's throwback to WW1 and WW2 designs in the far future. In the fluff, so many of these designs are millenia old, that the factories keep producing them but everyone alive has forgotten how it all works. I'll post pics of my tanks and you can see the WW1 reference.

Despite today being the release day for both SPace Marine (PS3) and Fringe Season 3 on DVD, I managed to squeeze in the decals and a Gretchin Green edge highlight on all her hard edges.
