During my former ”drop pod race” (finishing a total of 10), I was not happy with two of my builds, hence – I did not finishing them. Going back after finishing 6 new pods, I found that a little patience and wits could recover models initially discarded…
One-drop pod ended up as Inger Helene’s – Black Templars # 5 Crusader Drop Pod. The last one, well – after finishing my army for Adepticon 2017, I typically had to start a new project – salvaging and make use of a discarded mode that fitted with my tournament army.
Bringing a Dreadnought to one of the tournament events, I decided to remove all remnants of a Tactical Marines DropPod, adding bits that would make an appearance of enhanced Shock Absorbers, making use of some etched brass parts – and making it more ancient looking outside – adding bits clearly aligning it with dreadnoughts.
Enough said, this is how it turned out.
Work in progress
