You need to tidy up the lead copter's double-headed eagle in the top pics. Otherwise, your usual stunning quality.

Avenger Strike Fighter finished, nice model, reminds me of a Stuka...

I don't know Penfold, I just paint what he sends me, sounds like he has LOTS more stuff to go!

Anyhoo, just finished the final two pieces I have on hand, both FW models, Typhon heavy siege tank and the mighty Fellblade!

Great work as usual

The penultimate picture has a bit of blur making it look like the cannon are firing too!  :D

Local Commissar is watching this unit carefully. They're showing a lack of piety and possible Slaaneshi tendencies!

Those decal overpaints look great. Could you do a tutorial on your technique? Im loving what you are producing here, makes me enjoy 40 K a lot more than I have of late.
I like to rock and roll all night, and part of every day.

Hi Agent, will try, not gonna be in next few weeks as its crazy season and I aint got a friggin minute to myself!

Some 'interesting' additions this update!

First up, this was a scratch-build sent to me, I just painted it. Fluffwise it was an experimental fighter that the Sharks got hold of so going with the whole experimental thing a tribute to Stargate ;)






Next a few of buggies for his desert section, they are actually cracking little resin models, cant for the life of me think who makes these though? Customer is gonna finish them by adding 40k style weaponry and space marine crew






Finally, Puppetswar Dragonfly, for around 30 Euros you get a hell of a lot of resin, this thing is huge and tasty! Few bits added to 40k it up such as las cannons, light pod fronts on the side. Again part of his Desert force so painted in the requested Codex Space Shark 'Desert Grey' :OP

Your painting skills are unassailable, as always.

I should advise your client, though, that the 41st Millennium has a term for experimental designs: "HERESY!"  :whip:

Starting to get some pictures back of the complete collection so far, mind boggling!

No wonder my knees are knackered, carrying all that resin up and down the stairs!

You couldn't put a marine in for scale could you?

Is this still a commission job. That must be mega bucks. 

Oh yeah.. Looks really awesome too  :D

lSuperb! Inspired me to paint my own Dragonfly (well, soonish)...and the little 'Fire Wasp' buggy can be purchased from Hasslefree http://www.hfminis.co.uk/shop?product=fire-wasp-vehicle~gmf20&category=miniatures~grey-matter-resin but he'll have a job fitting SM's in there!
