I've been contemplating a slow build up into 30K/Horus Heresy stuff.
I was thinking of removing the Lascannon sponsons from the Land Raider and adding on one of the Chapterhouse Studios Iconoclast kits to convert the tank into a MkIIb (sort of).

Does anyone have any opinions or thoughts on the Chapterhouse stuff? I've never bought from them before, but I think it's a pretty cool looking kit!

Thanks for going back, finishing that unit, and posting it with the note. I really appreciate that.

Looking great so far!

Started painting around 7pm and finished basing/flocking about 11:45pm
Not my best work...but not too shabby either!

I had an issue with a couple of the larger transfers (wrinkles) despite using medium. I may remove them and just hand paint the tactical squad symbol before I seal this unit.

Archangels Deathwing - August Pledge

Post by Maleagant » Fri Aug 01, 2014 12:35 am

So for August....I'm gonna' try and knock out the rest of the Mirror Match list!!!
But...the unit specifically for August is Tactical Squad #2

Aside from a trip to Washington state to visit family, July was rather a crappy month for me!
And with my school year starting August 1st (already??!! :o ) I may have to continue my speed painting efforts to get stuff done! We'll see how that works out!

Remember when I was going to make fun of you for going back to work before me?

I bought one of these second hand from ebay. They might have sold it on ebay because it needed a bit of work. But once I cleaned everything up, I think it looks pretty nice. Haven't painted it, but if I remember I'll try to snap a pic of it tonight. I really wish Forgeworld would release just the conversion part of their kit.

Thanks for your advice! :D
It's funny....you said almost the same thing my friend EvilSpaceElves said a few days ago. He ordered one after we had talked about it and had the same problems - a little warping, a little he had to cut out, etc. But after that work, his looks damn sexy!

I'll probably still go for it, but it's just a shame that you have to do all that work after paying $25-$30.
