After an exciting game of Warhammer 40K last Saturday, I discovered that my feeling about the technical benefit of Space Marines Drop Pods was correct and that I needed more of them! So I dove into my miniature closet for my other three unbuilt models I got four of these Drop Pods in a sweet deal last spring, and the day they arrive I (sometime last June) immediately started working on the 1st one, only to not get it finished until January of this year (due mostly to all the traveling and time away from home my current job has me doing).
But while digging about on Easter Sunday, I stumbled upon a Land Raider Crusader kit that I must have started 8 or 9 years ago. I was painting the models on the sprue, much like how I did the Drop Pod actually, and probably moved before I could get to far into it.
I started to get back into it right around the time the Space Wolves Codex came out a year or so ago, only to find out that the metal blister packs inside were identical! This would make it impossible to build this correctly, and GW had long since cancelled this kit (the current Land Raider Crusader is all plastic). So, I went ahead and ordered the plastic sprue directly from GW. This would prove to not only be a more tactically advantageous option as far as the game was concerned, but also a more stable choice as well (plastic/metal hybird kits tend to be fragile).
So I got quite a bit done that night, which I shall detail in the next post (I'm just out of time tonight!)
But here is a glimpse:
