Stormlord by cbomb13 Stormlord by cbomb13
I finished my Stormlord today, but it doesn't match the rest of my army. I plan to get rid of it in order to build another one that matches. I could've re-painted it, but it was to close to being done. Selling it and starting over will be the easier option I think.

How many crewmen does this thing have?
Do the machinegunners maning the twin tubbers near the 'tail section' actually have any place left to manevre or are they cramped back to back ?

I think the platform where the stubbers are is supposed to hold twenty models.

So in an event of a low ammo situation, that platform will be the FINAL STAND for the twenty Krieg soldiers.

I'm currently working on a piece that requires this info, will post it here as soon as it is finished.

How many crewmen did you say, does the Stormlord have ?

IDK, the crew is irrelevant in game play. I don't remember reading anywhere how many crew it has. It can transport a total of 40 passengers though.
Hope this helps.

What can you use to bring it down if you have only infantry ?

In my soon to be real comic, they are firing Basilisk shells to dig up huge craters into the ground, in which the Stormlords become bogged down, then they go full melee on the crews.
If the weapons are pointed downwards due to the inclination of the crater's lip, the cannons are rendered uselless or they can still be a danger?

range and how to blow the Stormlords might prove to be a blessing to my story.
Thanks you so much for the 40 passengers info.

If it's for a comic, you should have them plant demo charges on it. Big boom with no where to go = epic.

How do you kill the Baneblade- Stormlord, super heavies in-game with infantry based weapons ?

Schau mal, it doesn't look so spacious to me.
Only 3 models, 4 tops, seem to fit on that platform.

How do you stop these monster if you only have a company of infantrymen?

Even infantry can take anti tank weapons: Las-cannons, Missile launchers, and the like. Rear armor is only 11, or 12 so most armies can take it out. It won't go easily though :D

I'm momentarily working on a sketch that includes two different IG Regiments duking it out against each other due to some Administratorum error, that says to each side they're now fighting heretics.
The only difference between them is that Death Korps of Krieg have Stormlords and a Baneblade.
I want to make an epic comic outta this and I pray to God(Emperor) that GW will publish it.
The final scene is inspired by Saving Private Ryan's last battle against the German Tiger.
That Baneblade won't go down easily, I can assure you, but the bravery of the guardsmen facing his many cannon-mouths will be endless.
I was just looking for some info about taking out Baneblades + Heavies and the like using only infantry.
I'm working on the idea, that some of the "heretics" might even steal a Titan from the Death Korps Base.
Is that overstretching it a bit?

Can I ask how you painted this? I'd like to do something similar for my Tau army.

Airbrush, airbrush, and more airbrush ;)
After base-coating your primary color scheme with the airbrush, paint the metallic parts (tracks/bolters/etc.) and airbrush over all of it with the wash of choice: Aim for the panel lines, and exhaust vents/weapon emplacements etc. while leaving the center of the hull panels untouched. Then I use a brush to pick out some panel edges with scorched brown to simulate old rust/wear. Then chipped paint with boltgun metal. Then fresh rust with bestial brown. Then I highlight the metallic parts with chainmail, and spray a black (or devlan mud) wash again. Lastly put final highlights to the metallics, paint chips, and add a mud color to the hull (depending on the color of the bases of your army)......and that's about it.

Damn, that's a lot of airbrushing!

I can see my going for the basecoat/wash/drybrush technique instead. But thanks :)

At the same time, most bane blades and their counterparts arn't conscripted into specific companies and are put 'on loan' to sepertate armies.

Of course, in my mind you don't lend a superheavy to anyone unless you prepare it for the theater of operations it's heading to. I feel that even the slouches in the Imperium of the 41st century would be sure to paint the tank appropriately while en route to their destination ;)

I plan to let the e-bay gods decide, but it'll start at $50 U.S. I think? I'll see if I can find a buyer first :)

If I were to just sell it outright (or buy it now on e-bay) I'd ask for $150 US, or about 90 GBP. But in an auction like on e-bay I don't think I'd get any bids if I started that high.

At that price, i wouldnt but it. Tho, saying that its £60 (i think) i can understand £30 for labour on it. but still...

your welcome!:D now you may have explained how to me before but how did you do the rust and chips?
Reply
:iconcbomb13:
cbomb13 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2009
I started with scorched earth, then bestial brown for rust. Chips I use a darker color of the paint I'm chipping first, then boltgun/chainmail. Then I just overlap the two methods here and there.
