Look out, its an Update

Here’s an update. Today i broke out the almighty air brush and used its savage prowess upon my remaining vehicles in my mech-ed out army. Now the twin Rhinos and the twin Land Speeders are both in their correct colour schemes. But i’m stuck on which areas of my Drop Pod to paint red and so i just skipped past it.

Group shot of all the units painted today:

Land Speeders. They both have exactly the same weapons and they work as a pair within my army to destroy tanks as a fast melta unit

Rhinos. Once again, exactly the same loadout and their purpose is to transport my Tactical Squads. One will transport 2nd Squad to advance while the other will transport 3rd Squad to a firing position behind 2nd Squad to utilize their awesome plasma firepower.

And here they are together

Drop Pod. This Drop Pod holds within my Ironclad Dreadnought and will be dropped behind enemy lines along with my mop-up squad of Assault Space Marines. The Drop Pod has been converted in an attempt to fit a Dreadnought inside but it failed. Still, the Drop Pod looks cooler when it opens as such. Im also in a dilemma as to which sections of the Drop Pod to paint red. Perhaps some suggestions in the comments?

Also, i’m currently thinking of names to bestow upon my Tanks. My Dreadnoughts are named after Fallen Angels as per the tradition of the Dark Angels and their successor chapters and also due to the fact that they were once Battle Brothers who are now entombed within the mighty Dreadnought body. But what should i name the Tanks of my army? Once again, you could leave suggestions in the comments.

I should have a light box constructed soon so that i’ll be able to take better pictures without stuff in the background to distract from models


About Manfred Tham

Manfred can typically be found hiding from people behind his computer screen or a tall pint. However you can easily contact him in any given video game where he will either insult you or be really nice to you. In addition his nerdiness transcends the digital plane when he partakes in the arcane rituals of rolling dice in both table-top and board games. Disregarding the countless hours he has logged into games, Manfred loves nothing more than cooking food to satisfy his craving for Northern European cuisine or to sip away from the many bottles of whiskies he fondly defaults to. Manfred is also what is commonly known as a “metalhead” with a penchant for both symphonic and power metal. Manfred summarises his life philosophy with a quote by Samuel L.Jackson, but it has been redacted for being far too vulgar.
