Leaked Flyer

This was accidentally put up on the Forge World site earlier on:

The picture is titled 'Storm Eagle', which if current popular rumours are to be believed will be the new flyer available to all space marine chapters in the next round of codices. However the fact that it was leaked on Forge World probably means that it's a release they've got lined up rather than GW.

Either way, it looks completely awesome and in my opinion is what the Stormraven should've looked like. The only issue I have with it is that it looks a little too sleek and streamlined for the Space Marine design philosophy, but that's just me.

Overall Verdict: Bring it on! I want at least one for all three of my loyalist marine armies, one for my chaos, plus I'd convert one into a Pre-Heresy flyer for my Thousand Sons too

Back with actual painted models

So havn't posted anything for a while, but don't worry I've been busy. Finally into my new flat and fully unpacked, including my hobby area and internet connection, so I can start updating The Wandering Mind regularly again

I've been immensely busy painting up things from about a dozen different projects at once, so as I get a chance to photograph them, I'll post them up.

First thing I've got to show you is my WIP Deathwing Dreadnought.

I still need to finish the green and the metal but i'm quite proud of how the bone-colour has turned out.
The look I'm going for is to make the force look like it's been fighting through the depths of a Space Hulk for weeks on end (i.e Very dirty), partly because i think it's a cool look, but also because I can't manage a decent looking clean bone colour scheme

I've also started work revamping my CSM warband, spurred on by rumours of the upcoming Legions book.

Here's my PIP on my lord, based of Huron Blackheart's body, but he's going to end up with A Jump Pack, Thunder Hammer (Power Fist) and Storm Shield (Mark of Tzeentch)

I'll post more of his Warband soon, as I dig them out of boxes. Many of the models are from my old chaos army which I stopped playing when the current CSM book came out and sucked away all the flavour of the faction.

Anyway, I'm going to get back to painting. I'll post more soon
