Re: RT Space Marines army first glimpse.

Think Curtis is referring to the dreadnought rules in the compendium.
it includes a few examples of dreadnought builds including a contemptor which has a jump pack as part of it's standard equipment. but TBH I think they're just examples of builds rather then standard equipment for all dreadnoughts of that type.

As for modelling it, the entry for the jump pack states that they are built into the armoured casing of the dreadnoughts feet, so I don't think it's absolutely necessary to model it.

I'll second (or third) the comments about the sculpting. This project is getting really interesting. Looking forward to more.

The head is from a metal Marine, I just had to resculpt the jaw and ear a bit as they got caught by the saw. No bit deal though, it is my job.

Better pics of the standard, still not great as he seems difficult to photograph!

Edit again: No idea why Tinypic is suddenly rotating my images, it shows right way up on my phone and on on their sides on my laptop!

Next batch primed and preshaded. Just a jetbike and another dread to finish converting along with a LotD squad for a little treat before the CF faction is ready to roll.

Re: RT Space Marines army first glimpse.

That ought to be something special when you have it done. It's surely coming along very nicely.
