Dark Angels Strike Cruiser

Carrying on the prepation for this month's Epic UK Grand Tournament, I've dug out my converted Strike Cruiser. Annoyingly this is one of my favourite models but one of the few that's not made the cut in the cut-down tournament list. (It was in for Britcon which was 4000, but this event is only 3000). In fact, most my favourite detachments in terms of painted models have been cut - Landing Craft, Scouts and Land Raiders.

Out of the sky, rockets ignite, jets into battle flying faster than light

This Strike Cruiser is not the standard BFG one, but a Forge World Grey Knight Strike Cruiser. I've got a retro vibe going in my Dark Angels, and the smooth angular plain surfaces of the Grey Knight version evokes this really nicely.

I filled in the High Gothic inscriptions, removed the huge =I= icon from the bridge and added a few accessories from the Dark Angels veteran sprue. Quite simple. I would like to weather this up with the Forge World weathering powders in future. One day.

And, in other news Epic UK have re-released their Space Marine army list - which clears up a lot of the schoolboy typographical mistakes. So I can no longer mock them with this.

Oh yes, I'm a written English nazi

Urk! And after this evening's practice game where I was left with just one Thunderbolt it doesn't look like I can improve that any time soon.
