id say leave it black maybe do some grey highlights and do an imperial aquila accross the wings in red and maybe do a blood drop down the centre.

or just leave it like that .. this way it will match your BA army but still be 100% awesome as an IG model

edit: oh and do some bright green orb effects on the lights etc so they really POP!

it is still black, ive used it in 1 battle, the thing is damn near unkillable

I liked Blood Angels before they were cool

if you just want to leave it black, FW has some valkyrie templates that you might be able to scavenge some stuff that you like from. They have the shark grin, aquilas for the wings, and various other pieces.

Wow, amazing how you were able to do this with that kit. Me lieks.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them. For original stuff. For stuff that is part of an established universe.

I've been avoiding this thread because I figured some poor dude glued his model to his head! However, since it's been hanging around for a while, curiosity got the best of me. WOW! Great job I'm glad I got to see this. Now I'll have to hang around a little longer to see it painted up!

Jesus, you are my hero, i have wanted a thunderbolt for so long, but never had the drive to save up enough for a FW model, now that you have enlightened me it is within my grasp.

That is fantastic work, I never would have guessed that didn't come from a proper kit to be honest. Have some well deserved rep for that.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

*EDIT* Turned my screen brightness up and can see it fine now.

Have you got any WIPs? or if not could you possibly give us a run down of which parts are what from the valk kit and how you went about doing it? I can make out what almost all of the bits are, I'm just unsure as to how you've placed them together :s

Anyway, great job!
