Default The Vendetta

Ok so here is my first painting (and sorta modelling) post coming at ya......
(CC is welcome)0
This is the first vehicle I will fully paint. I have been collecting guard for like 9 or 10 months.
I have only painted a few miniatures before (like 15 guardsman and a bassilisk) but I got a bit ambitious with this. I was inspired by the template FW sell but since I couldn't be bothered paying for it and waiting 3 weeks I went freehand.
The colours are still a bit patchy in the photos (I cant even notice it with normally) so I may go over it again.
I painted the inside fully before gluing it together and intend to paint the cockpit before the covers go on that.
The lascannons came from the heavy weapons teams I have and I mounted them on the bit that normally holds the missile. (It was a nightmare getting them to point straight and in the same direction )
Anyway, I still have some work to do and will probably go around the edges of the decals to make them a bit more smooth.
Took me about 4 or 5 hours over a few days to paint thus far......













Updates soon hopefully (Im really busy at work, putting in 12 hour days all week)

EDIT: I do believe there is an eye on the other head by the way!

Btw should add pics of my (soon to be) camo scheme for my vehicles
I wanted the valkyrie to blend in with it but to be different at the same time.
