I haven't posted for some time, last post was in November I believe. I took a break from painting, since I lost a bit of mojo. Sometimes, when it comes to hobbying, I''m a bit over-saturated and I need a well-earned break. Playing games with my armies still continues, but the painting/building aspect is on hold for some weeks or months.
But not any longer! The best motivation I can have is that I have to meet a deadline. I dislike playing with unpainted models, so when I have a nice (large) battle upcoming and feel the need to use new toys, I embark upon a quest to finish that model so I can use it in the battle.
This has always worked for me and with that in mind I started working again on my Hell Talon. As you can see, it's far from there yet, but It will be done by tonight. All I need to add is some decals, weathering and highlights and she's ready to dominate the skies!
|Hell Talon - Now with hazard stripes!|
|Tamiya 6mm masking tape works best for this kind of job.|
|Warp Pulse Bombs slowly gaining colour|
|I use a custom flight rod and base from Dragon Forge Studios.|
To the left is the GW flyer base.
|She stands firm!|
|Finally, added the canopy. I decided red glass was better looking.|
