I like big tanks and I cannot lie

Postby Guard>Marines » 02 Jan 2018, 10:14

So, I got my Baneblade for Christmas and started putting it together yesterday. Had hoped to get the whole hull made, but only succeeded in getting the right track and Hull assembled and magnetised. Hoping to have the hull made tonight, and the top Baneblade/Hellhammer section made tomorrow.

What I am a bit annoyed about is GW only giving you one set of sponsons in the box and charging an extra £15.50 if you want a second set...

Just need to put the turrets on this portion of the upper hull. Then that'll give me the Baneblade and Hellhammer.

Also need to put on all the tiny little detail pieces...

Was hoping to have it undercoated, however that didn't happen. Although it is now a completed Baneblade/Hellhammer. Just need to magnetise the hull section amd guns for the other 6 variants now.
I love the fact the Hellhammer turret is armed with a rear flashlight!

So, yesterday I managed to get the basecoating all sprayed. Currently tidying up my spray job and then will start painting details. Hoping to get it all basecoating today and started with shading.

Here's the finished Octoblade. Haven't added mud or rust battle damage, on the fence as to whether I should add any.
