I had my first game of 6th today against air born Guard - granted I had a pity army of other peoples spare models and not the most efficient of lists (ebayed all my stuff a year ago) - but wow flyers, Im bothered I dont have enough anti aircraft in this 1.5Ker Im building. I think I may drop the Korvydae theme and the model will represent Shadow captain of the 5th instead so I can drop the scouts and bang in another Storm Talon, also give the rocket launchers Flakk? Any other people have trouble against flyers?

get the new fire raptor (forge world) and use a storm talon as an escorting craft, air superiority right there...

i run a storm talon and an agis defence line with a quad gun at 1500 pts and that seems to work well.

That is quite possibly the oddest way to paint black I've ever seen but having seen the results my interest is piped further. Is your black glaze custom made?

It is custom made, black water and Vallejo thinner... it is odd, but its pretty easy to do, just a little time consuming! Actually on the models I painted on the first post I did it in a less exaggerated way, the last model I havent pictured yet works a a little better... its not for everyone, just finding a techique that works for you.

I'll take some pics tonight in progress to show the progession of it. Pizza first!

Is it just one layer you apply or many?
