Heresy Era Death Guard: Fire Raptor
Its been a quite 2 weeks on the blog, but the Forge has been running day and night to build and paint this bad-ass - the Legion Fire Raptor!
This was bought for me on Games Day by my girlfriend for my birthday (what a Gal!) Its a great kit, full of detail and easy to put together. Plus you get a tonne of plastic spare parts which will come in very handy in the future.
I've taken this guy out for a spin at club the other night, and its an absolute BEAST! It accounted for around 3 quarters of my victory points that game! Gonna have to get me a second!
(Apologies for the picture quality - this guy is so big it barely fits inside my light box)
The Avenger Bolt Cannon:
The Reaper Autocannon Pods:
These were magnetised so they could be removed more easily for transport and storage:
Here's a scale shot with a Contemptor and Legionary:
I'm still working on the scenic base - this is where i'm at so far:
I also snapped a few WIP pics while building and painting:
With a Legion Support Squad and another 10 Legionnaires waiting to be painted, i'll be pumping out plenty of Death Guard over the next week!
