I get stuck on certain ideas. Even though I’m constantly reminded that they’re rubbish in competative games terms I can’t seem to shift myself away from them. The ‘no sponson predator’ is a good example. I don’t understand why people aren’t scared of an AV13 box that costs like 80 (ish) pts – but apparently I’m wrong. Oh well, it doesn’t really matter since I play 40k once a year at most.
The Landspeeder (after the jump) was fun, I thought the dual chin flamers was a good looking idea. I also added a heavy flamer to the dred arm – legal? Who cares, it looks cool right?!
Rev, I love your Iron Hands! They were the inspiration behind my own Iron Hands army.

Those guys do look cool. The conversion on the pilot and co-pilot for the Land Speeder jumped out. Also, heavy flamer on the Dreadnought is legal. The small flamer that comes in the kit is actually a heavy flamer.

Fantastic paint job, especially love the lens effects on the spot lights, and the small scratch like battle damage.

I'm with Oink, sometimes a cool idea is better than simply what works on the table top. I try to sneak in a squad of Swooping Hawks or Shining Spears in a game here and there, purely on the basis that they are gorgeous models.

The "Rule of Cool" is what I call it… You're right, I care more that it looks good than if it actually IS good! Also, I love the cog design added to your drop pod door… I htink it really helps to add character, I've got a bunch of Iron Hand drop pods for my army but they are looking somewhat bare and boring… Consider your idea nicked by the way!
