Just opened my post box and was surprised that my order from Anvil Industry has turned up already...

 

Amongst some marine legs, cloaks and purity seals and parchments where some boonie hats for some shotgun vets I will be painting in between waiting for filler and paint to dry on other projects...

 

They look great :)

The primer is now on the Thunderbolt - Tamiya TS61 Nato green upper and a "no-brand car primer" light grey underside.

 

The plan is to go for the same scheme as my Valkyrie so there is still quite a lot of work to do.

The wings are just tacked on for the photo and will be glued on later. Still a little warpage on the wings and I have tried multiple times to straighten it with warm water and even went to the extreme of a hair dryer and then dunking in cold water to fix it but they keep on bending back after a few days. I guess I will have to live with it but it is not too bad.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

I wish those heads were around many years ago when I was modeling my veteran Catchans. I had to make a mold of another booney cap and cast my own.

8th Edition is definitely the reform that 3rd Edition should have been. So they’re only twenty plus years late. Not bad, could have been worse.

Sometimes it is just a matter of timing... I had gone for berets on some of my Kasrkin and Sgts but I am making some shotgun vets soon and these just seemed right ;)

It has been on hold as the Thunderbolt has moved up the painting queue...

 

It will be next though as it is just about ready to prime ;)

Another step closer...

 

The upper camouflage pattern is now done and some work on the pilot too.

 

Still the underneath to paint in low-vis grey then all the detailing and then the decals and weathering to do... I reckon 2 weeks minimum :(

The pilot is based on this artwork

 

 

On a side note... I seem to have lost one of the pipework manifold covers so I will have to make one from plasticard :(

Cheers guys smile.png

 

I managed to shape a piece of plasticard to replace the missing bit and got stuck in with some detailing.

 

All that is needed now is some tidying up and weathering (2 days work or so) then I have 9 x Psykers waiting for some paint...

Impressive. I like the red-and-blue stripes. Are they honor markings, identifiers (see "invasion stripes" on Allied aircraft, from D-day), or unit insignia?

They are unit markings (the same colours as my Valkyrie has on the tail-booms). :)

Great work! The colours work nicely on a flyer, the red and blue complement it to give it a bit more splash without detracting from the overall camo :)

I have had 9 Wyrdvane Psykers lying around on the painting table for a couple of months but have been waiting to clear some other projects before I started them...

 

As the 31 Oct was a bank holiday here I decided to get started on them and they are such nice models to paint I completed them in 1 day less the bases (drying paint 1f641.png)..

 

They will be a nice addition to the 711th Combined Cadian Arms Brigade.

I've never been a fan of those models, but your paint scheme looks great on them and makes them less miserable looking!

I just went through about 12 pages of this and you are a fething machine, Elmo. I wish I could crank models of that quality with that speed.

Also, I hereby dub thee Camo King.

Don't look in the links in my Sig for the Tau and DA then.... ;)

Oh, I've seen all of that. I'd like to get a small Vostroyan force going that looks as cohesive as your Cadians.
