Deimos Pattern Predator

Since I've just gotten these, I wasted no time in starting out with my Deimos Pattern Predators. I've ordered 2, but only managed to work with 1 for now.

The kit is quite interesting, first you have to assemble part of a Rhino which will be modified a bit, and the rest of them are resin parts.

This picture shows how it should start out.

The back of the hull needs to be flat to fit a new hatch.

This is how it kinda looks like when partially assembled.

Well obviously, the turret needs to be "encouraged" a little.

Found something nice.

So yesterday I had some time on my hands, went out for an early dinner with the other half since we skipped lunch. I went to our local thrift store, and I find this, an MDF board which is approximately 6mm thick, which would also mean, no warping of the board will happen. The board is a little less than 8 inch by 12 inch.

I figured that it would be a perfect display board for my Dark Eldar and/or pre-heresyBlood Angels (since I use the same basing method for both). It fits nicely into the IKEA Detolf glass cabinet without taking up the entire space, which would mean that I can place it in any way I want.

After rummaging through some of my boxes for terrain pieces, I built a small terrain piece to be set at the corner of the board. It's meant to create another surface level for me to place more models on.

Tonight will be my last night to continue with this as tomorrow I'll be flying back to Penang for Chinese New Year for a week.

Lots to paint and work on.

I've been quite busy painting lately, especially after recovering from a 3 week sickness! Phew.

My focus has been shifting and changing a lot too. But it mainly revolves around the Dark Eldar for Kindred 4, pre-heresy Blood Angels for the Legio Army Throwdown, and planning for a Warhammer Fantasy army for the next Throwdown.

Anywho, here are some shots using a newly acquired camera. I intentionally chose one with wide lenses and the ability to do awesome macro shots.

A squad of 5 Kabalite Warriors.

The Kabalite Trueborn squad that I'm quite happy about.

Also, a completed Relic Contemptor Dreadnought, which upon looking at these pictures I realize that I haven't finished some details.

I'll do my best to blog more often now since I got a proper camera to use now.
