My first Super-Heavy - Part 1

And so the previous post is the prelude to my first Super-Heavy plus another 3 Hellhounds and 3 Leman Russ that you all have seen it very frequently in any engagements against me so I'm not going to cover those. Here is a short diary from the day I've owned it until completion

27th July 2014
I've coughed up quite the upfront to have the kit, I do thank Derek for allowing me the honour of owning the kit that is so awesome with an upfront, guess I'll be eating roti for the next two months (just kidding, I've planned for it).

Armour has arrived
As usual as an eager beaver, I've cracked open the box and started assembling the biggest stuff I see, the Baneblade/Hellhammer (I thought I could build a Shadowsword, the one with the D-weapon with this kit but still I'm not disappointed with the purchase)

The crazed Tech Magos goes to work right away.
I told myself it would require me about 8 hours collectively to complete assembling this monstrosity. So after about 3.5 hours that day, this is what I've came up with......

The Machine Spirit is pleased with the progress

Tracks are rumbling to a tabletop near you!

Can you hear the thunderous sound of approaching armor, General?
