Kaelo Rylanus; Raven Guard Update 2

Hi all!

I hope that you are all well. Today I am going to show more about my current project, The Raven Guard. 

In my last post I had a look at the troop choices that I have assembled in preparation for the Raven Guard Legion in a Day project (which has unfortunately had to be delayed). Today I will be showing you a look at my Elite units.


Although not featured in this update, I will be doing a 10 man Tartaros Terminator squad like this above! 

Here is a WIP of my Contemptor Dreadnought. This is a phenomenally beautiful model and the detail is brilliant. I have gone for the Autocannon and Chainfist combo as seen on the website. Unfortunately I am not very good at posing lol.


Here is a quick look at my veteran squad I am working on too. I am waiting on a few bits to be delivered to complete them. They will be transported in a Darkwing Pattern Storm Eagle Gunship in some of their deployments.


Finally for my Elites, here is a 5 man Mor Deythan squad. Again, these are stunning sculpts and the quality was really great (most of Forge Worlds newest stuff is). What do you think of them?


Once I have finished assembling the Raven Guard I will most likely return to assembling my Ultramarines while we wait for a day that the bunnies can all get together for the Legion in a Day project. This is also a benefit as I will be moving in the next few months and models take up less space assembled then they do in bags (well...FW kits do lol).

I am having a bit of a hobby-wobble at the moment as I am seeing a reduction in spare time and energy due to focusing more on the rehabilitation on my knee and weightloss, which has seen me attending gym 5 times a week. So progress is slow but steady. 

Thanks for reading, check back soon for some more progress.

Kaelo

    1. The RG Contemptor is a really good looking model, God damn Forge World, why are you taking all of my money?

  2. What weapons are you going for on the Mor Deythan?

  3. Having just got through a hobby wobble, I understand how frustrating it can be. Glad to see progress!

  5. Contemptor looks incredible, the detail on it looks really nice. Can't believe I haven't really noticed it before.

    The Mor Deythan are definitely nice sculpts but I find the price a bit off-putting; £50 for 5 power armoured marines seems a lot when most FW Terminator units don't even cost that much.

  6. New ordinatus is finally up for preorder.

    Looks like a large nine of old product may be going the way of the dinosaur... Assuming it's not an April fools.

    Also the new left handed paint brush is out soon!

    1. I don't think it would be legal to make this an aprils fool ...

      I got (literally) the last RG MkIV dreadnought - some of the Orks stuff I wanted is gone too ...

      Delete
    2. I was making plans for a gargant and was relying on those weapons. Dang it!

      Delete
    3. Oh so we agree the old "Gargatns came after the Orks saw Titans on Armageddon" fluff is no longer canon, right ;)? :P

      Delete
    4. I think Gargants were around before Ullanor. Recently listen to A Thousand Sons and I'm sure Magnus is described as facing one down on his own!

    5. Darien, Atia is being a tease... She knows I believe that already.

  7. Kudos on planning to field some Deliverers!

    Extra points for having them ride an Outflanking Darkwing!
