Everything else has halted until either I stall with this project or finish it. I shall create my own house to ally with my Astartes, so you know what style I'll be going for.
|...and team Silent. I am content.|
These two images in particular gave me a good idea what colours I could use, although I am not fully decided; white, yellow/ochre, chequerboard, black flames, red and brown-- unsure in what order, though.
But the kit itself-! Throne of Earth, did it scare me! I decided to ease myself into it by building the torso and then kitbashing an interior until I felt more at home with the model.
|the pieces that aren't from the land raider are cut from the Aquila strongpoint base|
The land raider screens I was going to save for my thunderhawk, but I won't be furnishing that any time in the near future so I can get another whenever. It also seems to be the piece everybody uses.
What I am intending is to make and paint the interior, then the pilot separately, then put them in a nice little cage to drop in cleanly.
The sentinel seat seemed good enough. And now for the pilot...
...'twasn't bad, I suppose. This was half an hour's sculpting. My greenstuff skills are sorely limited; hopefully it will look better with purity seals and some frills and things.
This is where I am at the moment. I thought about wiring up some lights but then thought against it. The wires in there are just to make the sides a little more interesting, but it's not nearly finished, oh dear me no!
