Thunderhawk Pt 2

  So the project is on hold for a moment as I am waiting on some Oyumaru also known as Instant molding sticks. I have two heavy bolters but I need 8. You can get them on ebay and a few other sites, here is the one I purchased

  I was asked to see her next too some Marines, so her ya go!

Here is a Prow view, the door on the left is a landraider door, the right is a rhino.

This is a Starboard view, The landraider door is about where it should go.

Some pics show rhinos driving off the front ramp, and it would fit!

An Aft View.

A picture from above.

  At the moment she is not glued together she is pinned with tooth pics! As for her Dimensions she is about the same size as a Forge World Thunderhawk. The folks at Warseer say the FW ones hull is about 5'' and mine is about 4''

New Apocalypse update!

    I found this pic as I was jumping around the web! Nice model, I hope that it will open and close and not need to be built one way or the other. This is going to be a great summer for Warhammer 40k Players!

The rise of Titans

                     So Buy now you all have most likely seen the July cover for white dwarf.

I am not usually a fan of large point value games, but Apocalypse has always held a special place in my heart. I would say it springs from my love of team battles. As its great fun to team up and do giant battles like you read about all over 40k, the wars for Armageddon, and the Crusade of Fire. I watched my brother Slay a Greater Demon of Khorne with a missile shot in a 5000pt 4 on 4 way back in 2nd edition. To the first Apocalypse game I ran at a flgs of 10,000 pt. That game was 4 players a side, 2,500pts each. The points were raised from 2,000 each when I saw the warlord titan in the Apoc book. I was going to bring my wolves but the hook was set as I remembered reading the comic Titan God Machine, and from there I had one month to build my Warlord.
   I based it off the Forge World of Graia from the Relic Space Marine game, the older history about this forge world is that its the home of the Titan legion of The Legio Astraman (AKA the Morning Stars) and I used there color scheme. The teams were Space Wolves (not mine), Imperial guard, Tau, and my Warlord Titan versus Chaos Marines, Necrons, Orks, and Renegade Imperial Guard. If you have ever seen the stats on a warlords weapons and thought WOW, then let me tell you as one Princeps to another, the stats are as nothing to seeing them put to use on the table!

Armed with Apocalypse Missile Launcher, Vortex Missle, Volcano Cannon, and Quake Cannon.
Enemy in sight turn 1
After the Titans first shooting phase our foes have lost a Monolith, Canoptek Tomb Stalker, a squad of Necron Warriors, Necron Lord, Chimra with comand Squad, Havok squad, Vindicator, Defiler, A ruin and a few other things. The Voetex Missile was a beast!
So what are your thoughts about a New Apocalypse?
So till next time, For the Allfather, for Russ, and for Fenris!!

Space Wolves Psychic Power Cards

  There are sets of  Psychic Powers Cards out for the new books, but not the old ones. So I set out to make a set for the Sons of Russ!

  My first set of cards I made was with a 50% photocopy of the powers page, then I traced Magic Cards on too card stock, then I cut out and glued the powers to the card. These worked good and I was able to make them with things around the house.

  But then a few people at the FLGS had the new fancy GW cards, and made me want to make nicer looking ones. So with a little search on the web I found these Space Wolves styled card backs (Highland_Piper from dakka dakka did the card back art!). Then I scanned the powers page and a little MS:Paint magic later I had these! To have a set of your own Just print one side, put the paper back in upside down and print the other side. A little note, put a small mark on the top of the paper before you load and print, then put it back in with the mark down! My next step is to cut them out and get them laminated at Kinko's.

  So till next time, For the Allfather, for Russ, and for Fenris!!
