Yeah I’ve heard mixed reports on the model. I haven’t got one but she looks cool to me.
Everything GW are releasing seem to be getting bigger. I found an old mini marine I’d painted years ago the other day it looks laughable now! Primaris have rewritten the scale of things, personally I feel it’s a good thing. Now the Astartes tower over the mortals, as it should be.
Hmm, that's interesting. I figured they would be closer to the current Dark Eldar in size: slightly bulkier due to the power armor and all. If you get a chance to take a side by side shot with a guardsmen I'd be interested to see it.
I actually never thought of that, I'll do that this evening.
I think I may have a Cadian solder in my bits box but I'll a Vostroyan for sure.

My Current WIP.
I've been very stressed out and frustrated Airbrushing this, especially the top 'Skull cap' I restarted 3 times in anger and frustration, I've finally got it to a standard that I like. (Novice Airbrusher) The head should be done this week just in time for next Wednesday, when I'll be at Warhammer World to purchase the next Item. (Catlin Cannon or Volcanno Cannon) I can't decide.
I'm a little annoyed that you can no longer purchase the Nemisis Cannon on it's own and they have the cheek to make the Titan more expensive.
That looks really good, well worth the effort if you ask me.
I really like the look (and idea) of a titan mounted gatling cannon myself; shooting several hundred bullets that size in under a minute is just.. wonderfull, and silly, but that's one of the reasons it's so wonderful

Thanks gents, I really appriciate it. Saturday evening I was crying in a glass cage of emotion and now I feel so much better. I'm still learning the ways of the Air brushing Force, it just doesn't do what you want it to.
I will end up with both as they're easily the coolest out of the four.
The Gatling Cannon has more to build and paint. The volcanon cannon looks cooler.
This is the current update from my painting session last night, I have some tidy up's inside and on the neck section, then I'm ready for Wednesday's new arrival.

Its proper beast killing cannon, it's the length of my forearm so I've bought decent Magnets to keep it in place, as I had a fear that they would fall off.
That's 140 standard squad of 10 men (With the HB team), doesn't include the other heavy weapon teams and the special weapons teams. I have a trojan and I need one more Russ, then I'm done. Started in 2006 and I find it hard to move away from them, I hope the sisters will help me move on.
Nice! That brass turned out great; did you (the middle) parts of the trim in a lighter shade? Or that natural light?
I've used a lighter shade over the top of the medium colour and I also used a couple of coats of washes to daren some areas down. I really did a lot of research to see what other's had done with the Volacanno Cannon, as I didn't want it to be over 'Blingy' with metallics.

Cheers Gents! I hope you had a good Holiday Jud?
It took me all day to unload, looked at it for a couple of hours and to put all back, but it was so worth it. There are new items hidden away in there that I haven't shared with you just yet I need to push extra hard to complete this lot in time for Sisters.
Now that I have them all pictured, I'll have to tally up the points, then we can have a mad Appoc's game.

About time I did an update, even if it is little.
I've bought the Gattling Cannon for the Titan project and after a very long wait my dream has finally come true because I've just pre-ordered the DKoK Gorgon to add to my army. A very excited Major Downer!!!
