It will be my landing craft for my inquisitor warband

 

Following the guide on ironsleet you have up to 12w in the warband and a vehicle.

 

This will mainly be a background modelling piece still working on the warband and the vehicle

More work completed last night on The Duchess.

 

I think I am going to remove the front wing bit and then place chains running down the length.

 

Still working on the cockpit.

 

More to follow

What a strange, yet alluring beast......I will watch this with great interest.

This isn't a criticism...When i saw this, this is the image that popped into my head:

The curved shape in profile made me think of a ship (junk). 

 

I am really keen to see this completed and painted.

bingo

 

 

that style was an inspiration

 

it is going to hit the inquisitor band that pilots the duchess as well

 

never worked with green stuff unless it was a join or some hair stuff, so kinda hitting some new ground

 

 

looking forward to it

 

 

any ideas on a colour scheme?

I dig it! I usually suggest basic bad-ass black for inquisitorial vehicles, with some red accent panels.

More work completed on the Duchess

 

Got her buttoned up and got the cockpit to finish off and then doors and gunners

 

 

She is just measuring at just over a foot long and very front heavy, so I am looking at a cradle to hold her rather than a straight rod

Hmmm, I really like the idea, but something about it feels....'odd'

 

Have you considered swapping all the fins/wings on the Valkyrie? At the moment it feels like they are arranged against the motion of the vehicle. It looks like the two lower ones and the middle one have been swapped (aerilons moved to the back) but the top ones still look odd. And maybe the Valk wings? that way they'd match the sweep on the back section.

 

As i say its an awesome idea and i love the vision, this is just my 2p.

 

Oh, and still waiting for the pic with the smiley face..... ;)
