The Heldrake finished with all of it's metal veins and rivets gleaming!
Going through the painstaking effort of getting some base gold from P3 Paints!
Dry-brushing on some detail to one of the talons.
Side view of this screaming monstrosity!
Catching all of the cool detail on the many fins; all of the layering of ribs and fins were definitely a challenge, but proved worth the effort!
Combination of dry-brushing, highlighting, washes, and glazing gave this effect!
Right side view... such a cool model!
Screeching as it circles in towards its victims.
Close-up view of the head; notice the digital red-eye, the green acid in the venom spitter, and the pink on the techno-lash-tongue-thingy!
Definitely no fun facing this thing on the battlefield! (I know... I have had to do it!)
Ariel view of the head.
Ariel view of the back, showing off some of the detail.
Look at that wing span!
Transitioning to the battlefield... awesome!
What a terrorizing model to place on the field! It definitely makes you sweat because you know the commander is going to spit venom on your troops, roll the dice to wound and then say, "Pick'em up!" because MOST models get no armor save! Ick!!!
Here is the final pic: really enjoyed this project, and the final result was soooo worth the sweat. Please go and vote for him at:
