So I’ve been busy the last few weeks, work has been manic however I have still managed to produce a small amount of hobby to share. Seeing as Kaelarr has been ranting about flyers the last few weeks I felt inspired to rework my Dark Mechanicus flyers, so I will be talking about the construction and painting side of this today.
I wasn’t very happy with my original flyer shown a few weeks ago on here, it was missing something. So I set to work redesigning it to fit in better with the overall look of my army. I wanted to make it more daemon looking like my stalker (Greater Daemon of Nurgle). I found this a challenge until I remembered the blight drone from forge world, so I worked on an idea of a cross between that and a Hell blade to represent my Night Scythes.
For the model I used the back part of a soul grinders upper body with allot of miliput, greenstuff and plasticard, unfortunately I got so into the project I didn’t photograph as I went (stupid boy). I battle damaged the main body of the hell blade to continue my corroding damaged look. For painting I used the same step by step I used on my Stalker and the link to that is here if you want to check it out. I have not finished the flying base yet but here is a picture of the finished but not based model.
