Hey guys! It's been awfully quiet here for a few months, but I haven't forgotten about Crimson Skies...in fact, I've been doing some painting the past few days!
So in the hope this will kick start things a bit for everyone, here's my two new planes. The first is a Boeing Groundhog, painted as part of the smuggler Nina Marsh's gang:
And here's the second, a Pursuit F-37 Special, as seen in Patrick's excellent "Zeppelins and Bombers" supplement! The miniature is from fellow forumite Nick's Fen Edge Wargaming shop on Shapeways, and I have to commend Nick for another great job bringing Patrick's planes to life:
I was originally trying for a police-style color scheme, as supposedly the F-37 is designed specifically for law enforcement (though apparently no one is quite sure what Pursuit Aviation is up to). It came out much more like a racer than I expected. But on further reflection, I suppose if you were trying to sell a plane to the police, you'd try and make it look snazzy, right?
And here's a shot of both my new planes together:
Any suggestions for what I should paint next? I'm considering the following:
1. Badger Parasite Fighter from "Zeppelins and Bombers"
2. Bloodhawk E from "Zeppelins and Bombers"
3. Davis Mk IV Zion in Utah colors. SInce there's no existing official Zion miniature, I was thinking about using a Payen PA 200 as a proxy:http://www.shapeways.com/product/EPARM5 ... d=43370340
