(And target practice bouys :tu: )

Since specialist games launched I've generally been able to avoid getting sucked into any of the new games. Including the various expansions of 40k (BSF being the only exception).
Even with the announcement of AI I felt indifferent, as I'm patiently waiting for BFG ;)

However when they started showing the models for AI it was impossible to say no. I'm a sucker for the Thunderbolt and Marauder.

So here I am I'm slowly making a start on my starter set, I haven't had a game yet. I will see how the game play is if I'm going to invest further into it or just collect the awesome planes :D


Snooping around seems like my colour schemes aren't too different from others ideas of a heavy WW2 theme. The Thunderbolts in particular will draw heavily from the P51 and the Marauders from B17s.

Anyhow now the important stuff

Vallejo metallics are literally perfect for my scheme :D

Had a blue green grey from a USAF vallejo paint set figured I could use it on my Marauders

Had a bit more time yesterday to use the airbrush. Shaded the Marauders and hit it with a slightly different shade of grey. Happy with the result next up will be recess shading and details.

Target bouys are red so the pilots can easily distinguish between friendly planes during live fire drills. Apparently the xenos think the colour goes faster... <_<

I haven't done the additional weapons yet.
I've decided I will probably go with RoC because WYSIWYG on such small models seems needless

Were you spying on me? That's literally what I did to my wife this morning when she was sitting in the backyard and I wanted so see how my Marauder scheme looked like in natural light :lol:

These models definitely bring out the inner kid in me though :sweat:

As promised finished my warsuit so started working on my first Marauder
Not 100% sure where I'm going with the scheme but I'll figure it out
These seem easy enough to do both in quick succession. Which is just as well because Mithrils quadrant seems to be overrun with green skins and needs some support...

Slow progress spot washing these buggers takes time!
More or less finish that now touch ups and figuring out what edge highlighting colour to use
Since it's not GW might be trickier although hoping a Space Wolf colour will do the job (not russ grey through tried that and you couldn't see)

Do the Marauder they said it'll be less highlighting than the warsuits they said... <_<

Well spent most the weekend highlighting this one sucker! Almost got him done... A little more on the undercarriage and that's done just a few final details
I don't think I'll be doing his wingman next though. These guys have so much detail!!! And it's tiny too

Fortunately I don't plan on edge highlighting any of the other aircrafts. Dry brushing for them! :lol:

Tremendous work! It would be interesting to see the results of dry brushing side by side as I wasn't convinced edge highlighting was worthwhile at this scale.

Ton of edge highlights indeed! Beaky week we'll see I'll probably painting a thunderbolt next and plan to dry brush that

In the meanwhile I'm calling this guy done! (I'll get to the bombs at a later date)

gallery_87434_15889_62652.jpg

All those lines makes me want to go back to some Primaris Marines, or a Repulsor Executioner... ;)

Good job.

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.

Thanks

I was actually admiring it from a distance last night

And although you can't pick out the exact details and lines of the highlighting you can still notice to pop it provides. So not a complete waste of time! :D
