Almost half way done with the banshees. Been working on some CD and 60mm base terrain lately. Will work on this soon.

Purchased a great looking picture hanging wire. Loos like a reinforced chain. Much better than what I planned to use originally.

Attaching the banchess to the chariot base and making the flames look natural will be a challenge.

Always look out for number one, but don't step in number two.

Looking forward to seeing the finished piece. I haven't done anything on my two projects for a long time. I just need to decide on a paint scheme for my beasts.

Second banshee fully painted last night. First one ready to go. Jet packs were finished - just need a matte spray on them.

I think I figures out the flames.

I may have to finish at Dave's house this weekend.

Here are some updated pictures:

I will attach the flames and chain after I touch up the jetpacks tomorrow.

Looks interesting. I did some work on mine yesterday wishing I had some more Karnophages to add as gunners.

Orca Chariot is complete (finally). Here are the official entry pictures:














The chain I used was just one I found in the picture hanging section at Home Depot. It resembled a reinforced metal chain much better than normal picture hanging wire.

The flames (once I figured out how to attach the pinning rods to the base), were relatively easy. I used the bag of flames from the Flames of War acc pack. I simply wound them up each rod and then covered the red/yellow flames with a good amount of grey.

The chain was then bent to shape and inserted into the back of each Banshee's jet pack. It is not permanently fixed to the jetpack for ease of dissassemembly for travel.

Glad I finished the Orca chariot. I am pretty happy with the results.

I'm in agony.  All I've been painting is CAVs!!  I've got chariot components, but nothing is firing my imagination.  I better get moving or I won't be able to kick Coil's butt again!!!    ;D
May the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter smile kindly upon you.

Just to be sure I will have a copy of the chariot races for everybody that is at talamania this year and I will make them available to anyone who takes part in the forums that wants them.

You guys really make things fun.

Be Well
