Scale approximately 1:32
Full Review with Geoff Coughlin
A note before we start…
Now, as many of you will know, I have only recently been building Sci-Fi models, well, properly anyway :)
Mostly I am very at home with my aircraft in all scales and, well, a visit to my local Games Workshop turned into a very interesting experience, not least because of the dent in my wallet!!
Seeing this ship was a no-brainer and I had to buy it and not least because I have got some rather different plans for you all with most of my Sci-Fi builds that are in the pipeline and especially these Warhammer projects that I do like.
What’s the plan then?
Well, I want to share some tips and tricks to help speed up the build process that you may, or may not be aware of and if not, great, something to think about doing in your own builds.
The second thing is mainly about the painting process… it seems like Games Workshop dominates the whole Warhammer 40,000 world and with good reason – they have some very nice products like paints, tools and weathering accessories to sell off the back of their model kit ranges. Their models are very expensive in my opinion, when compared to other manufacturers who produce many of my more usual kits and so you want to be able to make the most of what’s supplied for sure.
I want to show you how I use other manufacturers’ paints and weathering accessories as you may not have seen them before or even heard of them and that’s a shame because there’s a world out there that offers an incredible range of different paint manufacturers and others offering weathering products. More of that later, especially when we get to the painting stages of this project.
What do you get in the box?
Plenty! In short with lots of options such as different rocket pods either side of the cockpit and options for open / dropped vents and panels on the ship as well as lowered or raised landing skids – nice.
That’s about all you have to decide, how you want your Stormtalon ship to look.
