Sons of Horus Mastodon

Hello all!

Last week I was able to get my Mastodon finished off. It is a big tank!! I enjoyed painting it but I'm pleased it is finished, holding the tank while painting was also difficult due to the weight of it! Hopefully I will be able to get it onto the tabletop for some gaming in the next couple of weeks, I'm interested to see how it performs.






As you may have seen through the rest of my updates, I have also been painting up the interior of the tank. I have essentially painted the inside the same as the outside but I have picked out as many of the small details that I can to add to the overall look.





Overall I'm really pleased with how it has come together. It makes a great centre piece to my Sons of Horus First Company and it will be fun driving loads of Justaerin around the board! 


Happy hobbying!

  2. Those mastodons are certainly beasts! Nice paint job and well done for taking the time to do the interior properly. Will look awesome on the battlefield and judging by the armaments it carries, should be quite devastating!

  3. Now all we need is a blood angles player to convert the one from the book about signus which had the top blown off and was being used as a pimp car by the blood angles that had succumb to the black rage.

    1. That it is! 3000 points minimum to get it on the table. I have a silly list of Abaddon, 30 Justaerin, a spartan and the mastodon only! 2 big tanks driving forwards and dropping the Justaerin on your door step!

  7. Looks superb. Really turned great and fits the army marvelously. If only mine would be shipped now that would be great.
