I entered a little hobby progress challenge over at The Independent Characters forum the idea is to complete at least one unit each month, and be done with a full 1850 point army by the end of November.
I took this as an opportunity to get my ravenwing stuff painted and on the boards. So I have entered with this in mind.
The exact army I'm going to end up with is not something I have decided yet, I have only had the new army book for a few weeks and I'm still a bit uncertain what to do. But my first thing to paint was another Land speeder, and so I did and here it is;
If you notice the base, it's the same one as I used on my old school speeder that I did before the new year, the reason for this is that I used my brand new speeder just after the holidays, and well... a metal model is a bit heavy, so much in fact that the magnet I used was not up to the task of holding it, so while we moved some stuff on the other side of the table, the speeder took a nose dive right of the table into the floor, smashing it quite a bit. The result was this;
So in frustration I threw together a new base for it, this time with two flight stands to hold it up, the old one with a magnet is still there, but I also added a new hole and a new stand for added stability, and now it won't go anywhere.
The base is not as nice as the other ones, but it's functional, and thats what counts at the moment.
