Dark Angels Take Flight

Warhammer 40,000 – One of my regular clients has been adding to his Dark Angels force pretty steadily. The latest addition is a Dark Talon, one of the flyers that seems to have been given new life with the most recent codex. 

An amazing kit that build two very similar looking planes, the Dark Talon is the version with the gothic looking bomb and stone strapped to the sides of a plane. (Yeah I know right flying masonary..) My client wasn't a fan of the flying stone either and asked me to do something more interesting. I opted to go with gold as it keeps the relic look but is slightly more believable than flying rocks.

For the cabin I opted to stick with a simple green glow effect. You can barely see inside once the glass is in place and sealed so there's not much point in doing a super detailed cockpit.
