The show must go on! I’m really fighting the urge to say the model is ‘good enough’ and get it painted, especially with looming deadlines for the army, but the more time I spend on the model, the happier I am with the build.
Today I looked into the tail and adding extra wing mounts onto the engines. Here’s my train of thought:
I really want to make use of the eagle shape from this Cities of Death piece.
A small update for this time-eating project!
I decided to take an easy way out of doing the Dreadnought grapples – they’re inside the ship!
Making use of a Spare Drop Pod door I ordered a while back (I’ll make a seer of me yet!), I stole the hinges to make the back of the ship look like doors. You could equally use the spaer bit of casing cut out of the engines.
A great review of the Horus Heresy boardgame by Shroudfilm, of The Great Crusade notoriety:
The first thing that everyone has commented on when opening the box is the miniatures. Dear sweet holy Terra… there are hundreds of the things in all the colours of the rainbow. Well, all the colours of the Chaos gods. Plus grey.
With the addition of the ‘Storm Hawk’ to the Age of the Emperor pack, my Mechanicum force is able to field a very handy skimmer transport. More importantly, I have an excuse to build one of those Storm Ravens everyone is having a crack at!
The kit is almost wholly made from a Valkyrie. I used a few leftover bits from a Chimera for the cockpit.
