This is so tight wow I’m impressed with your output. And the aliens stuff? Pretty damn legit. I can see the pilot right now swooping in over the buildings. Great.

I apologize @pork chop express:

 

The green I used are Tamyia OD Green Spray  and Militarum Green. For the inside I used Nurgle Green and then gave it a nuln oil wash. So here is the complete collage of my Valkyrie.

Yeah I was done with my Valks but then I saw a sheet of decals for gundam models. Well I couldnt help it and it actually added to the valks modern look.

Hobby update:

 

gallery_61925_16336_216766.jpg

 

Nearing the end of this force... 1x ten man squad of kasrkins to go and 1x kasrkin command squad. I just finished their Taurox.

 

gallery_61925_16336_42129.jpg

 

This here is the command squad primed and a heavy support squad for a different detachment I am working on for Taskforce 141 collection.

 

gallery_61925_16336_20851.jpg

 

Made these decals today. I think I got the process down pack. I am going to redo the pilot names for the Valkyries to make em look proper. oh and speaking of proper. if you look close you can probably guess what my next build project for my collection. stay tuned. I will also be posting a battle report.

Your choice of pinups demonstrate you have good taste in art.
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.

CDR M. Metcalf and LCDR R. Weatherly share the call sign "Viper". The flight crew's decals may need revision.

I recognize some names and call signs from Top Gun. Again, you have good taste in art.

oh I like both characters and I like the call sign Viper more than Joker. I did that so I can choose which will be the commander of the Marauder

How about using "Raptor" in place of one of the "Viper"s?

So I have been busy the past week since my last post. I started the week with the intent on finishing some infantry, but push came to shove I shifted my priorities to a different project part way through because of a package I received on Thursday the 10th.

 

gallery_61925_16336_355219.jpg

 

Infantry of the MEU for Taskforce 141

 

gallery_61925_16336_15525.jpg

 

I started to work on the last two squads of my Kasrkin collection. a 10 man Plasmagun squad and a Command Squad of Flamers.

10 man Plasmagun Squad primed.

Your painting skills are most impressive. The plasmaguns are well done.

Your rate of progress here is most impressive. Definitely putting my pile of shame to shame. Well done! I particularly like the interior consoles on the marauder. Super cool. That's such an awesome model.

I also think the red plasma works well with your color scheme. I do like seeing people branch out from the standard blue sometimes.
