Those bases are epic-tier amazeballs.

Basing is the biggest thing I struggle with now. To be honest I'm struggling to follow your explanation, which is likely down to my being dumb. Still, more details on it (see: idiot-proof explanation) would be appreciated!

You should. Those bases are genuinely exceptional.

And in return I'll bake cookies. At least I can do cookies!

Ok since we're expecting 240+ kph winds in this little storm on the way (you might of heard a little about this Irma thingy on the news). I decided to finally cave in and build an adult fort to ride this out in. This should be adaquite to keep us safe, right? I was told to not trust our concrete building and that it's all "part of the gubment's experiments with weather HAARPing" and will target houses only so we're set all up along the water front ;)

Sadly there was room only for brown party liquor or my models and brown party liquor was here first. Going to be a slow time on the hobby front for a while. See you all on the flip side!

Your lair needs more carpets. Carpets deflect hurricanes, it is known. They just fall down like dogs on polished floors.

(Be safe, I still need to crush you at some E:A games. You promised this.)

While every Space Marine chapter contains large numbers of scout forces, the Raptors Legion is almost unique in the annals of Astartes. Divergent to the dictates of the Codex Astartes, their specialized recon units are instead composed with a core force consisting of some of the most experienced marines in the chapter. It is with these veterans of a hundred wars on a thousand worlds do their initiates train and are mentored in the manner of silent death that typifies the Raptors way of war. Consummate trackers and infiltrators they are fully capable of executing long duration missions far from supply and friendly forces. Such as Recon Force Theta who held the theatre record of being deployed for over 341 standard imperial days behind enemy lines. Their intelligence on enemy troop movements and sabotage were instrumental in conducting the Imperial counter attacks of the 3rd phase.

Guess who's back, back again
Zimmy's back, tell a friend...

painter's notes:
Yet another batch of models being done to further procrastinate my Assault Rams. These were actually painted pre-hurricane but I'm just now getting around to finishing them.
So really just the same recipe as the previous Raptor LS Storms for colors. The cloaks where VMA Khaki brown base then blended up with VMA IDF sand grey. I had intended to use just 30k Recon marines, however when the time came to paint these up I realized I lacked enough individual figures (2 per base is kinda stretching it). I had a few extra CAD Scout Marines from eons ago laying around that I scattered here and there into the stands. So yeah...that's where my personal head-cannon Raptors came about from. #tmyk

Painter's notes:
So the long procrastinated Assault Ram are finally done after sitting on my desk waiting to be based since March. I decided that I'd go with the the theme of a Veteran squad being airlifted with the Rams usable as Sternguard in the RG list. Both sets of figures were done in my typical IH 'cast iron skillet' look consisting of VMA Intermediate Blue, extensive heavy drybrush of GW Runelord Brass, and a final application Woordland Scenics Black liquid pigment for coloration. GW Mithril Silver bits and bobs picked out and VGC Brassy Brass meltas. Normally effects like carbon scoring would be done with something like Charadon Granite lines applied to the leading surfaces that you would then go back and use you finger to streak and blend but...they're pretty much black ... s yeah, o I had to some up with another approach so I went with Portland Grey Light from the standard oil colors to do the inverse approach and cover the vehicle in tons of light ash marks along the airframe. Your eye doesn't consciously pick it up until you get close but it all the dozens of little streaks break up the shapes and blocks of color to give it a more pleasing used appearance.

The little dudes are some HH breachers and Medusan Immortals mixed together. For some reason a bunch of guy with big 'f-off' ballistic shields and grav guns or stalker bolters looking like some over zealous marine interpretation of an Imperial SWAT team just scream Iron Hands to me. Atypical of my marine bases, there's a full 5 figures on each. I wanted to give them a crowded FBI insertion team vibe as they've just jumped out of the rams and are breaching the target through the ruins, following each other on their way to wreck face. In addition I tool care to echo the same basing hints and tile patterns taken on the Leviathan dreadnought earlier in the plog to visually tie them together. I fully suspect they'll get used together.

Awesome stuff, really loving that boarding craft. What are its dimensions by the way?
