Flesh Tearers Drop Pods x3
« on: July 02, 2018, 05:24:19 PM »

Finally I have just finished three drop pods that have taken me the best part of two months to complete. These new orbital insertion vehicles will be dropping my Flesh Tearers Space Marines exactly where they need to be.... right in the heart of the enemy force. Whilst itís taken comparatively ages for me to assemble and paint these models they have actually been in my plastic pile for 14 years!! Agh.

Overall I really havenít enjoyed these models; they are laborious to paint; a nightmare to assemble and overly fragile; in fact this isnít least favourite modelling project of recent years! That being said I am happy that they are now complete and I look forward to dropping them right into my mateís deployment area next time we play.

Thereís a little bit more detail on my blog:

Well done! Nicely weathered but still very 'crisp' looking  :-*

You did a very good job on them but I can completely sympathise with you not enjoying it. Design wise I have never liked these drop pods, they look contrived, just don't look exciting to me.
But again, your painting is excellent.

Very good. As purely inanimate objects it must be hard to give them character but I think you've managed it.
