Sons of Wrath - Inceptors

Well hello there,



These Inceptor chaps were a dang pain in the arse to build! I hate the stand they come with and I wanted this army to have a real sense of moving forward, so much painstaking time was spent getting strange looks from the neighbours as I bashed rocks into pieces in my garden. I then reconstructed the rocks, aiming to give the Inceptors a sense of weight as they landed or took off, shattering the rocks beneath them. With... variable results...










A huge amount of work left on these guys. All the jets need glow adding, and all the vent flaps needed heat treating as well. Plus the usual smoothing out of the red/orange and the grey. But again, they are tabletop ready at least so there's that. 

I'll be popping up some Deathguard on Monday so it won't all be Imperial scum. Wait, what...?

Peace out,

Rob

  3. The flight stands these come with are awful! I broke one of the FLGS' inceptors off of its post just by gently moving the mini out of the way. What were they thinking by omitting a hole to insert the acrylic stand into?

    Anyways, your method with the rocks is both superior and more dynamic looking!

    1. Those stands are rubbish, and they severely limit your options aesthetically!

  4. The one on the right in your top pic looks more like he's tripping over the rock than smashing it, but other than that, they look great. A definite improvement over the flight stands GW used for the Models.

    1. Hah! It cannot be unseen! Though it doesn't look so much like that in flesh thankfully :P
