Well, I needed a break from painting on the dropship, all that sand colour, so I put some chaos cultists together to have some variation. Two of the models have been presented before and it is only the guy in the middle that is new. Nothing fancy, but is nice to do some other colours and actually paint and blend on the model instead of drybrushing.

And now, with wings. As I had painted most of the under side of the Dropship I decided to paint the undersides of the wings too so that I could attach them. I have also started a little on the top panels but all in all not much has happened, painting is slowly progressing.

This week I have focused on getting the underside of the dropship painted so that I could close up the top. Things are coming together but the fit of my custom parts could have been better. Have to keep that in mind for later projects. To be honest I have not had so much time to paint lately so the progress is quite slow, but I can start to see an end to this build. Then I have some more defiler knights to paint and a chaos warlord to build.

I am currently painting some different parts of the dropship so that I can assemble it for the external painting. I need to get the sliding doors done before attaching the roof as this will lock them into place. I also needed to paint the tail section as some of it will be hard to get to after assembly. The same goes for the undercarriage housings. I also need to get the landing gear sorted to that I can put the model down without damaging the paint. It is quite a large model and it is getting harder to paint as it grows. I might have to get an airbrush at some point. Especially when it is time to start painting the Opus Magna. But so far dry brushing is ok. I also realise that some of the plasticard build could have been neater, I really can see now where I became sloppy with the details. Lesson learned.
