Blood Axe Dakkajet almost done

Just about finished it up.  I need to do some pin washing on the panel lines and weathering but that's going to be on hold for a while. 

Pretty much loving the Blood Axe look, and they don't seem very common so I'll be using this color scheme on all my models moving forward.

I am planning on getting a new set of Tau models and painting/basing to match the Orks for Bay Area Open.

Blood Axe Dakkajet work in progress.

With depression setting in from my impending homelessness, getting passion for the hobby has been hard.  But I made a commitment to continue the Freebootaz challenge for another month, and this time I picked my Dakkajet. Needs to be finished by midnight on the 15th..3 color minimum + based.

Blood Axe, of course.  I think this is the way my army will trend over time. Blood Axes are so under represented.

Anyway last night I build the base, pretty standard cracked desert.    Tonight I primed the base, and finished the airbrush work on the plane.

I absolutely love how it came out!

Colors used are Badger Model Flex Camouflage Grey base with Roof Brown and Earth used for the camo pattern. The bottom is Tamiya Acrylic aircraft grey.  I picked up the Tamiya paint a while ago and have been wanting to try it out. Pretty good stuff, it is. Will be used on the ME-262 if I ever finish it.

Oh, and it was all done with my $15 Harbor Freight airbrush.

Real quick: My latest conversion.

Just finished this guy tonight, a new loota. Need to replace one of the guys I'm not happy with.

The heavy psycannon was given to me after I mentioned how awesome it would be as a loota.  It is.  Awesome, that is.

He might become my new favorite loota over the hurricane bolter guy.  Maybe.  Either that or I'll make a full unit of 10 from just heavy psycannons.  Maybe.

Iron Warriros Rhino complete!

Finished up my second model for Toys for Tots this year, a Rhino.  Lots of weathering.  Really, really like how it turned out.  The Havoc launcher is magnetized, and I have hidden magnets for the front.  The rear hatch opens and is magnetized, but the inside isn't's for storage.

Thanks for looking!
