I realized I don't post anywhere near enough anymore and usually just do stuff from my phone, but every once in a while I should pop in to show what I've been working on. 

Since I'm currently stuck at home for the next few weeks due to state lockdown and self-isolation, I figured I'd finish up some Lightnings to use with my Imperial Fists in 30k! I've painted them decently neutral so they can be used in any of my other imperial forces. 

Calling them done for now, however. Tried my hand at blistering the paint on one of them for a close call look; hopefully it looks alright. Not bad for rescued eBay models!

Those Lightnings look great. I like how you've been restrained with the yellow on the wings. It links them to the Imperial Fist force without them just being all yellow. I like that for the same reason I'm not keen on seeing Imperial Knights painted in Chapter/Legion colours. The weathering on the wings is a nice touch as well.

Great job on the Lightnings!
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Great colour scheme and awesome looking aircraft, well done on the close call too! what did you use - paint stripper?


outgunned, outnumbered - but never outclassed.

Great use of yellow as a spot stripe colour and the weathering just adds that extra "oomph". :tu:
