Imperial Fists Stormtalon by HomeOfCadaver Imperial Fists Stormtalon by HomeOfCadaver
I decided to add some flying punch to my Fists... starting with the brand new Stormtalon! I don't know about you but I love the Apache-meets-Space-Marines feeling of it. and this little fella packs quite a few punches in his arsenal.

Overall I'm quite happy with the result, although I had an accident with the varnish, that destroyed the clear plastic of the cockpit... :S In the end I had to paint it over and lose all the painted details on the inside ... oh well, I will be more careful with the next one...!

I would be more than happy to hear what you think and maybe leave me a vote in CoolMiniOrNot [link]

The yellow is spot on for Imperial Fists, which is impressive as it is one of the harder colours to get right.

Thank you so much! Truth is that yellow is my favorite color so I try my best to make it right!

A shame about the windows, however I really like to look of them now.

yea, it seems that it looks nice painted that way too! My next one will have clear glass though!

Personally I'm not a fan of the clear windows, they just don't seem to fit with the rest of the model (that's all models with windows). Maybe its because they can't make it thin enough.

Maybe you're right, but there are so many nice details that are lost inside if you paint them! :P

ah! a return to the fabled standards i see!

did you airbrushed the little one? the yellow seems quite solid :), weathering is ok, brown seems a little awkward, a granite grey or dark grey instead of brown would look a little more interesting i think. base is simple but its nice, the canopy windshield looks pretty in black though. :)

Hehe thank you! Yes I airbrushed it. I am actually experimenting with airbrushing, hopefully my next projects will come out better!

I don't think that grey would contrast enough for the desired chipped effect I want to create, but I will try it in my next model.

My next Stormtalon will have clear canopy. I want to see the interior :P

That is amazingly done. I'm sure you have been asked this before....but how do you get your yellow to come out so nicely?

Thank you so much! :)

This one is actually airbrushed several layers of Yellow Valleho Air Color and then I used black and brown inks to create the weathering.

I really like the weathering work on the tail section, and the sections with black trim.

I could be wrong, as I haven't built this model myself, but isn't the foot-pad of the tail backwards?
