Top-notch, as always! Everything looks great, and I especially love the screens. The posters were a nice touch, and make me wonder if the Sharks know that, as explained in one of the Ciaphas Cain books, the Sororitas don't actually make any vows of chastity...

Forgeworld Hound finished, don't believe what they say about this thing, it's easy to build, I made it up in a day WITHOUT instructions!!! Nice kit, actually tempted to get myself a Mars pattern to sit alongside Mjolnir my Reaver!

Anyhow, heres the pics, kept the colours along the same lines as the rest of the stuff, all 4 weapon variants were included

Very cool. Such awesome painting on a large scale, How do you find the room for all this stuff?

I thought Titans didn't have pilots but were more like Dreadnoughts, am I wrong there?

Yep your wrong, they work as normal vehicles, ie pilots and extra crew. ok they do plug themselves into the titan and get to feel what the titan feels, but they can unplug and leave the titan when they want.

Eons ago when I played 40K we didn't allow anything bigger than a Land Raider on the table.  You could have ten of them, but nothing bigger.  There is a point where more fire power just gets stupid and unbalanced.  That said, the kid with 5 LRs full of terminators never did manage to win against my eldar, or anyone else for that matter.  Got to be a running joke.

Back on topic, amazing paint work.

I have a tweeter thing now.  I might even use it.  @leadpaintshed if I can figure out how to

I'm not responsible for the resin kits Somaticon, I just paint 'em up for people   :smile:

Finally! The last of the knights (and of this commission) bit of a comedown after the Hound but don't mention it to him, he's a little sensitive  :wink:



Health an Safety insisted I Had to add the hazard stripes to the saw, apparently 'some' people out there still can't figure out that the blades on a giant chainsaw attached to a 50 foot war-bot can be a little bit dangerous!






All in all a fun project, if a little daunting when I first received that rather large box of resin bits! I hope the customer is happy with the overall quality of the work and fingers crossed I managed to unify most of the models while keeping each model a little unique in it's own right

I do hope I can have some pictures when they are all assembled on the battlefield in there new deployment zone!

I still can't get over the fact that you don't do any masking when you airbrush.  :tantrum:

Well, here we are again!

Made a start on the second batch of goodies sent to me in a couple of very heavy boxes, mainly flyers and heavy armour this time round. First up a couple of Lightnings to fly close air support

Tried to tie the colours in with the rest of the stuff so keeping it all 'Sharkie'




What's a shark without TEETH!




A little cockpit and pilot detail






Rest of the sharks can be hooked over on the website Tanksand trolls click on a few banners while your there please!

Beyond well-done, as always! I'll be peering very closely at these while I'm working on my Arvus. :paranoid2:

Great job as always. I love how you make them look used and dirty with oilsmoke.

However... the design of the Thunderbolt implies that as well as two turbojet engines it has a V8 piston engine - which has no propeller to drive!  :P :silly

I think your mistaken Mr Teufel, those pipes obviously vent hot air into the cockpit tea-0-matic 40,000   :yup:

Well, finally all that xmas and new year craziness over I can slip back into some proper projects!

Got stuck back into the long running Shark commission and the Marauder is now finished!

ps, ignore the white speckles, seem to be some wierd anomaly related to the batch of varnish and digi camera, looks fine in the flesh!

all prepped and ready for assembly, these things are fun without any instructions!


Detail shots of Bomber crew



Quite a bit of careful cutting and glueing of the plexiglass here....lots of panels!












The wings are removable to allow for easier transport


Size comparison compared to the Lightnings and Tbolt

Aquila Lander finished, surprisingly big piece of kit! Something about this I just like :)

Oh, if your wondering why there is a Shark Terminator on each picture, it's just my tongue in cheek response to the thread over on Bolter and Chainsword (which may not be there for long)! LOL







Comes with a  choice of weapons


Close up of the pilot and crew


The whole centre section is hinged and drops down, quite cool, reminds me of the old eagle craft from 1999 (theres a blast from the past)
