Now the drop pod can serve its purpose in a game. its built badly but built and its painted. SO I can use it but chances are im just going to buy 2 more instead of the one more i originally needed. So learn from my mistakes and dont assembly under the influence of medication. You think yoru doing great until you sober up.
Its a great kit and a very precise kit so when i eventually start on one again ill talk about it. Anyways up next is my counts as Pedro Kantor for this army his name is Master Uriel. After that is probably my capital ships for BFG then either more BFG or crusade era Thousand sons.

There nothing spectacular. There done in theme with my Angels of Fury chapter. All my imperial and space marine vessels and mechanicus vessels that I want to get over time will be painted in this way as per my chapters fluff.
Anyway BFG stuff is fast to paint. Assembly is a nightmare for the larger ships as there is no instructions but my friend was nice enough to assemble them for me. Check out Helios Ravens 40k blog at http://heliosravensnest.blogspot.com/. He is helping me out with the assembly of the larger ships aka assembling them and trying to salvage my Thunderfire Cannon as it was a bad mold.
Other then the larger ships potentially being a problem in terms of assembly they are fun and easy to paint. Another nice thing is that escort ships are usually 1 to 2 pieces. Hardest part about painting these guys is basecoating them. although you could do a spray base coat if you wanted. I am just going with brushing it on and it can be a pain to get the paint into the recesses. After the base coat its really up to you how detailed you want to be with yours. I just semi drybrushed adeptus battlegrey on the ship, picked out the engines in black and painted the Lance weaponry in bronze. Then i gave the whole thing a wash of badab black and sealed it with a matte varnish.
So yea anyway that's a little change of pace. I still will be working on the drop pod so when i have time to make more progress I shall. Until then..

Like ive said i switched gears and started on the Drop pod. Now I havent had much time to work on it so this is what I have done so far. Its a great kit. Its not perfect but after doing this much on the pod I will be able to make my second one faster and better.
Just for some perspective on it incase your like me and havent seen a drop pod in person before.. Its pretty big. With the doors down its footprint is roughly that of a landraider. but wider.
So that is it. More to come as I finish it and the other stuff i said prior to this I will put up here eventually. Until then. Take care
