Baneblade nears completion

Greetings everyone! 

Sorry for the profound lack of blogging, it's been a ridiculous few months which has meant there has been no hobbying done at all. That said, I did manage the past couple of days to get some work done on my Baneblade! 

I've finished the main piece of freehand which mirrors to a degree that found on the Macharius. I've also tried a slightly different style lion and think it is my best one yet. Still to paint on the tank is some freehand on the turret and the mechanicus shrine on the rear. After that it'll be time to do some serious weathering! 

Originally I had converted a tank commander with a pipe (the VL head) and sabre but then I remembered I had one of curious constructs fantastic tank commanders all painted up without a tank! So I stuck him straight in there and he looks bloody marvelous. 

Fingers crossed it won't take too much longer to finish this behemoth! 


  1. New lion design is excellent!

    Pointing and yelling is more believable than sword waving from the top of a school-sized AFV!

  2. Thanks fellas! Haha, dai you are quite right, though I'm not sure believable is what I'm going for ;)

  3. I've seen that icon somewhere before: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Team+GB+badge&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=667&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0CCAQsARqFQoTCMf3s-eVlsYCFQoy2wodtAgAfA
