Kind of homage to one of the all time best white dwarf batreps ever... just need a bridge wide enough to drive a baneblade across...
What is the issue number for that? That's incredible!

Looks like 247 and 248, september of 2000 i think.

Pretty happy with the tile painted up. Not going crazy, it is only there as a backdrop after all.

Cheers man.

Slow progress on this... not sure if it is just drying slow but the paint on one section kinda smeared off... really weird behaviour from spraypaint I have not encountered before. So tonight was damage control and dealing with a bad airbrush clog... damn. Giving up on hobby for tonight I think I will go grab my kindle and fire up my black library book. :|

Sorry to hear about the hobby problem. Maybe this will make you feel better. I'm making a display board using my mini basing theme, green/yellow chaos under agrellan earth, and I grabbed rakarth flesh instead of the earth paint. I didn't realize that I had grabbed the wrong paint until I had used over half the bottle on the board. Let's just say that I spent an extra hour doing damage control and repair last night. I should have just spent the evening finishing "Thousand Sons".

Congrats on finishing man, I can't wait to see the group shots. One comment I have is that the sergeant's helmet stripe looks a little uneven but that may just be the picture.

I deliberately made it off centre to line up with,the left eye, I think it looks like a personalized piece of war gear.

I like the stripe, makes the sergeant look a little more deranged. I also like the dev squad load out. Lots of distance shots. I've used this configuration a few times and was really happy with it.

I quoted you in my game tonight, it was space marines vs space marines and every time that either,of us passed the armor save, I said "space marine pillow fight!" It was a little ridiculous, one of my legion of the damned survived 2 turns of assault vs 15 Tac marines. My Tac squad sergeant survived 3rounds of assault vs a five man squad.

You have got some really cool stuff going on! I love the Fire Raptors, the crazy painting sign and all the terrain. You really want to bring out your minis when you see that awesome city!
