Finally finished- magnetized Land Speeder Vengeance / Ravenwing Darkshroud

After entirely too many hours of agony, self-doubt, and abject terror, my Landspeeder Vengeance / Ravenwing Darkshroud is finally to a point that I can finally say without too much embarassment that is is done enough for me.

The paint is nothing special, even though it took me forever. Just a lot of basecoats and 'talent in a bottle' (and more than a little courage in a bottle), and some lazily-applied edge highlighting here and there. The fact of the matter is that I am very uncomfortable painting black at the moment- but I should certainly get over it, since I've got another 3 DV Ravenwing guys to paint, as well as some Black Knights.

Anyway. Here's some poorly-lit pictures. I'm not immensely proud, but I'm not embarrassed, either, and that's got to be worth something, right?

*I have no idea why this picture is rotated- it isn't anywhere except on this post. I reckon everybody can deal with it.

Right now on the Dark Angels bench, I've got a second DV tac squad, a Rhino, and the DV Captain and Librarian. Once those are done a think I might take a break from the Sons of the Lion and work on some Orks (I've got a box full of Boyz primed) or some Chaos jerks for a change of pace.

Until next time!


  1. Heya, lovely speeder you got there.

    I just got my hands on two of them tonight and I am a bit confused as to how to magnetize them.

    Can you tell me how you did yours?

    1. In the last picture, the bits that are separate from the model all have tiny rare-earth magnets (the cannons, the relic, and the gunner's arms). They are glued into holes that are drilled into the plastic just deep enough that the magnets sit flush. The mating surfaces on the model (top turret and gunner's shoulders) have the corresponding rare-earth magnets affixed in a similar fashion. It's easy enough- Just make sure you have the magnets oriented correctly!
