Washed the scouts, drybrush and shaded the armour and did some green trim. These models are pretty sweet. Sadly not posable really at all so I wouldn't really want 10. I'm going to run these as scouts in my army since the Fists are so undernumbered, even new battle brothers receive powered armour.

Finished storm talons! I've seen some canopies painted to be one solid colour, but I thought I'd paint the section of the canopy right in front of the pilot to look like some sort of a HUD. Maybe it doesn't at all but I think it looks a bit more visually interesting than a complete canopy paint job :). The wings are from a storm raven and the tail is the original wings moved back. Anyway I'm watching tv right now so no time for more chit-chat; pictures!

My storm talons are basically done. This was my first techmarine for the army (one of the pilots) and I used this to test out how I wanted to paint them. Fully red was too much so I opted for just a single shoulder pad. It's minimal and less 'christmas' colour-esque. The little green strip on the tail was an after thought when the models were done to balance the green out. The only thing left is to do the canopy but I'm waiting on some transparent paint to do something with them (a friend has a bottle so I need him to visit).

The last models in my current 'wave' are now washed and highlighted. I still have to do the sponging and all of the other detail. I wasn't sure what to do with the cockpit but I think since it's mostly covered, I'm just going to paint it grey and do a black wash. Super simple. Soon the fists will have some fearsome air support!
