For most of the week I have been busy working on two of Forge World’s Chaos Hell Talon’s and three Hell Blades for a friends army. The models themselves are pretty impressive, especially the Hell Talon. Which was much larger than I had anticipated. Assembly was pretty straight forward. The usual having to heat up parts to bend them into shape.But overall both are quite pleasant to build. I chose a colour scheme which was a cross between the recent Nephilim Fighter and Helldrake and I decided to black in the windows.Some may not like this but I always like cockpits finished this way.I’m a big fan of the F117.I used a lot of painting techniques that are shown in Forge World’s Model Masterclass books. Again I highly recommend these books if you like painting vehicles.
Aww the base/flying stand. I'm still thinking of a way to get them attached. Seeing the models dont have a pre-made holes in bases. It is kind of strange that its missing. You do get a small block of resin that you are supposed to attach with a hole. But it looks a bit fugly.
I think Tale of Painters is a great site.
ThirdEyeNuke, did you manage to give them both a base? I've got one here, and I'm really wondering at how to give this one a base. I'm really doubting about drilling a hole, and glueing a GW flying stand doesn't seem a good solution either. Could you show me how you did it?
Thanks a bunch, mate!
Hey Revan88, for the flyers they should of given you a small resin cube with a cross segment cut out of the middle of it. You need to glue this on the centre of the underbelly of the flyer, so that you can attach the transparent flying stand to hold it to the base. Hope that helps!

No bases/flying stands?
Knowing how fast you paint these (my storm raven took a month, and thunder hawk took a year to build and paint >.<) you can be forgiven for skipping the pilot paint jobs 😉
Love your style though, it's the polar opposite to my bright paint schemes or Stahly's ultra neat, colourful style. The variety of styles is one of the nice things of Tale of Painters.
