It Came from the Lightbox: Aeronautica Imperialis

Who knows if I’ll ever get to play the game, but I do enjoy painting Aeronautica Imperialis.

I felt obligated to paint up the Adeptus Astartes aircraft the same way I’ve been painting my Crimson Fists. I’m very pleased with the results, but it does mean that I couldn’t use the basecoat/oil wash approach I’ve been using for the other AI models.

I was able to do that with the Arvus, though. Only complaint with these guys: I got too excited about wrapping them up I forgot to put some decals on them.

It took a goddamn month for Forgeworld to ship the ground assets I’d preordered but I’ve got a whole post about how utter crap GW/FW has been about shipping well and above any sort of logistical challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic that I need to write up.

I also banged out some ground assets for my Navy/Guard and Tau, using the quick and dirty approaches I used on their respective aircraft.

It Came from the Lightbox: More Battletech

Not really following official color schemes here, just doing what I felt like. So: the Clan Invasion ‘mechs with my Crimson Fist color scheme.

Wolf’s Dragoons were painted red. That’s close to the right color scheme? The green canopies feel great.
