Hello Readers, thanks for dropping in again. Here is my latest addition to the Relictors Armoury, an Anti-Aircraft Hunter Tank, armed with the quite decent Skyspear Missile system.
This is based on a Rhino APC but with side panels containing hydraulic rams to steady the platform for missile release, I've painted it my usual Relictors Codex Grey (Dawnstone) over a black undercoat, washed with Nuln Oil and highlighted with Fortress Grey (Administratum Grey).
The Skyspear missile system allows you to shoot and damage most flyers easily with high strength and Skyfire but as an added bonus, if you miss, the missile has a 'Savant Lock' rule, so it is like a homing missile, it follows the target for the next turns and on a roll of +5, it hits the targets rear armour, unless the target leaves the battlefield, what a fun characterful rule I can't wait to try out!
I love the barrel muzzle of the Skyspear, it looks the business!
And a characterful shot on the terrain, for those who don't like plain white backgrounds ;)
And another shot next to the other AA tank, the Stalker I did previously, I know most people will probably magnetize theirs to do both options on one hull, but this was a present so I lucked in. The only part you only get one of which is needed on both kits is the triple aerial assembly - which you can live without on the Stalker turret.
And lastly, the Skyspear Missile token which you place next to the target if you miss it! The kit comes with a spare missile so you can make this token using some wire and a spare base, better than a coin as suggested by GW.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you like my latest addition. I started this before my pledge to reduce my painting pile, so it doesn't quite count towards my 6MMRPC goal.
