Woah so cool! Really like the hammer wulfen and the interceptors really look like ravens! You should call them Huginn and Muninn!

i love this idea

Before i committed to walking armor as my battle doctrine (bjorn, dreads, leviathans and knights) i was very tempted by the air wolf approach

i love your artistic take on it and agree they are your huginn and muninn

A bit more progress this weekend. It takes a tone of time in between layers so its slow going. But its shaping up.

And an overall size comparison:

My first try at this one I realized it was almost getting photorealistic, not in an "omg this is so good way" but a "why is there a bird slapped on the front of this thing" way. So I chopped most of the detail down again and pushed more towards a stylized approach that would fit the vehicle and imperial design schemes.

 

The angry brows need to be redone, I'm contemplating chopping the while brow/eye structure off, flattening it like the top to get the angles and surfaces right and building them out again in an angular way. Almost like the eagle from the aquila strongpoint, we'll see. The other option I thought was to flatten like i said but then rather than building out again, just painting the eyes on like a WW2 plane (in a more nordic style ofc).

 

The swirly on the beak was a shot in the dark of what i should do, I think its a miss though. Im thinking of using plasticard to do a relief design. Plenty to do before finishing touches like that though.

 

I'm liking where it going but what do we think, on the right track here or silly like some of my hater friends?

i think the prior image with a short beak (not protruding past gun barrels) looked more natural

this is a step too far imho

the swirly villain mustache is a pass too

i like the idea of ww2 nose art
