Thanks mate, kudos for your excellent terrain too!

Well, I've finished the thunderbolt and a lot of fun it was too! It took me from when I posted that Demolisher and Sentinel until tonight, but that's because I had a long weekend and no uni assignments (or work interruptions) so I can count myself lucky there... Things I like about it are the white, the star pattern (thanks again Xeno) and the base generally - the story I have for myself there is that the pilot has taken out the SAM site by shooting a nearby promethium barrel such that it's drained into the launch tube. Things I didn't like were the limited freehand decals that I did today - they were simple in design but much harder to execute than the black on grey designs I've been doing lately - and the water effect on the base, which I think is my worst yet. All in all though, I'm pretty satisfied. What do you think, heretics?

Looking good.

Crisp and clean doesn't usually appeal to me with white/grey stuff, but that look very striking!

Thanks Tawa, I'm glad you like this one - the white is not so clean up close, which I rather like. I took the top from today's aircraft, with an overall clean feeling but a sense that when it stops flying, it leaks oil. Plus, I never play on white tables so the flyer should stand out, or blend in if I ever get into gear and save up for a tundra mat.

A touch grubbier in the flesh? I usually end up with white turning out like that, which isn't a bad thing

Feeling prolific, I have painted up a lead Empire type for a band of armed men from Somewhere South of Praag... He's the Baron's lieutenant, simply clad and far from a renowned fighter, he mostly keeps the local peasants and burghers in check with his squad of variously equipped minions. On rare occasions, he may be sent on raids to clear mutants and beastmen from the road out of town or leading up to the castle.
Of clearly Albion heritage, Cormack von Albionscheckt, captain of the guard.

I didn't notice you finished the flyer - My god that looks magnificent. I tip my hat to you sir!

I'll see what I can do, that poor model has taken a bit of a beating and needs some TLC to get photoworthy again. I haven't played with my GK since the codex dropped on account of my finding terminators versus terminators very boring and most of my friends around playing Deathwing last year, but perhaps the time will come soon to resurrect that army... after I've got to my Guard objective!

Thanks mate! I'm standing on the shoulders of giants to get most of the nice bits of that done, but it was really good to get a break from the greys and blacks of my guard with something completely different. I'm going to alternate between boxes of guard and other projects for a while so that I can do a little more of this sort of thing whilst still drawing down on my list of guard to collect and paint.

Having said that, the box I'm working on now is a Hammer of Cadia set, so we'll see how I go with that plan!

"Save up?" What is this "save up" of which you speak? Have you some ancient, ancestral knowledge of which we know not? Art thou truly the one of whom prophecy has spoken?

(all humor aside: nicely, crisply done flyer. I can't complain about the hand-done decals, them being about what I think I would be able to do myself. The Deathstrike missile ready to launch on the base is a particularly threatening addition, of which I approve.)
