Horus Heresy - Look at what I found!
As I was doing some cleaning up/rearranging in my office the other day, I stumbled across this old Rapier Laser Destroyer. It may look at bit odd, but that's a layer of black ink over the top of the bare metal. It must, therefore, have been used in the GW Promotions studio in the US at some point foraMail Order catalog or something similar. My, how the times have changed.
Anyway, I never really had any plans to add a Rapier to my collection, but when one is dropped in your lap...
The two crew are kitbashed from various FW and plastic parts, and I think they turned out pretty well.
In addition to assembling the Rapier crew (and sticking the Rapier on a base), I built these five Tactical support Squad troopers, all with Volkite calivers. As a typical Imperial Guard player, I really like the idea of any weapon that causes automatic hits. Put that same weapon in the hands of someone with BS4 and I'm sold : )
