I've finally finished a miniature! I know that this blog was initially a painting blog, but over the summer I've not had much time to paint, so I've been playing a lot more. But I can say that this model can be ticked off now.
The basic scheme is Wazdakka Red on top and Ushabti bone underneath. As it was an Aspect Warrior, I didn't want it to detract too much from the shrines colour scheme. As you can see from the pictures, the large blocks of colour are nice and solid thanks to the airbrush.
I know that the scheme is quite similar to the 'Eavy Metal scheme that is featured in Games Workshop material, but wanting to take the colours of the Crimson Hunter and add a flavour of the Ulthwé craftworlds' colours doesn't leave a great palette to work with.
I decided to go with bone vanes and a black nosecone and cockpit. I used Imperial Primer for the black this time, the main reason being that it dries matt, and I feel that is more true to modern day military aviation schemes.
I'm hoping to add this model to an 1800 point tournament list in October, and also be the basis of a 1000 point list to give me a chance to learn how the unique movement rules of the flyers in Warhammer 40k work.
A lot of my models are getting to the point where they are very nearly finished, so hopefully there will be a few more showcase entries coming thick and fast.
