Rhino/Razorback Magnetized

Now, as promised, the Rhino/Razorback conversion. This is something I've wanted to do for a while, but with the Eldar fiasco and some other happenings I hadn't ever gotten around to buying a Razorback. So here we go.

Hunter Killer Missile Mania!

It's been a while. I've been very busy with non-40k thingies. But, I'm back on board and to get the ball rolling I'll talk about Hunter Killer Missles. HKMs are my favorite filler for spare points. A little pricey for 1 shot per game in my opinion, but I love the unlimited distance and such a powerful shot coming from a rhino.

Fortress of Win

I walked into my local gaming store very intent on buying a Razorback so I could try my hand at a Rhino/Razorback magnet conversion. After selecting my item and browsing a smidgen I notice a display item near the Apocalypse section I usually end up ignoring. A Black Friday left-over; Fortress of Redemption for 25% off. Only 2 of these left.

Needless to say, no Razorback walkthrough for a bit, people. I'll be attempting to put this thing together before our game night tomorrow. Pics will surely follow.
