Warhammer 40k, Heldrake

Okay, the next model I've attempted to paint, is the Heldrake. The Heldrake is a mechanical flying creature, a Chaos fusion of flesh, metal and bone which preys upon both troops and vehicles alike. With a pair of huge claws that it uses to rip apart enemy units, the Hell Drake utilises surprise tactics to swoop down from the skies and deliver enemy troops to their doom. This one is fitted with a baleflamer, which spews daemonic fire.

It took me about three days to finish painting ( I made the mistake of assembling most of it first, which made it trickier to tackle), and I decided to have a little fun with it and mix it up so that it's not all one colour. All that's left to do now is the base.

Warhammer 40k, Chaos Cultists

Over Christmas, I've been painting my son's Warhammer 40k figures from the Dark Vengeance set. It was very relaxing painting them, although it did take me a long time. I think each small figure averaged about an hour to complete, and there were twenty of them in total! So far I've painted the Chaos Cultists, the Chaos Space Marines Dark Apostle (which was bought separately), and the Dark Vengeance Helbrute. As this is my first attempt at painting Warhammer figures, I know I've got a lot to learn, but these are my results so far.
