Would have posted this in a "Post your" or "Showcase" thread, but there isn't one for fliers.

 

Anyway, I'm really happy with my emperor's children helldrake, so while I don't normally post things here (so intimidating) I thought I would in this case.

 

Still have to do the base, but that can wait until I decide on how to spruce it up a bit.

Here's some pics of the two weapon options:

The picture above shows some of the things I'm not so sold on about the model - namely its stubby tail and its funny little rear legs.  Still, it gives a good view on the wings - if I do another, I think I will give it wider stripes and carry them back onto the rear wings as well.

Finally, a "danger view" photo.

Great work!

I always felt this model was an homage to Ghidora from Godzilla. The big wings, stubby legs and serpentine neck. A little resculpting and it could have 3 heads...

Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.

Thought I would make this thread into a general "stuff completed" thread.

 

You ever buy a model because it will let you use some bits left over from a different model?  It happens more often than one might think for me.

 

Anyway, I had an imperial knight that I hadn't used the mechanicus symbols on, and when shopping at the local hobby store, saw a WWII Russian fuel tank that would allow me to use them.  So I picked it up and painted it to go along with the little tractors from the munitorium terrain set.

I'm out of practice building historical models... it was very fiddly and (I suspect) quite fragile.  Also used a transfer for the first time in more than 20 years, and while it was less of an ordeal than a remembered (part of the reason for not using them in so long), I'm pretty happy with it, even if the decals aren't completely straight.  The model doesn't really have much obvious detail, so I think the giant white numbers really bring the model together.
