1/29/15: Showcase: Tau Riptide and Death Korps of Krieg Valkyrie

Good evening folks!

Another week, another group of projects to show you all! The cycle never ends, and I'm alright with that!

This time around, we have a Green Lantern-inspired Tau Riptide and a Valkyrie, done for the same client. You'll be seeing more of the Green Tau soon, as the client is commissioning a larger force here down the road! Lets start with the Riptide!

The Riptide in all his green glory! All weapon options are magnetized for full optimization! Fun to do some techniques I don't usually work with, while still using things like transfers and lens effects.

Phenomenal cosmic power! Itty bitty tiny head!

Can't forget the Missile Drones! The addition of a transfer to the front helps give them extra character.

The second model was an Imperial Valkyrie, done to match the client's Death Korps army. All wing weapons are magnetized for whatever the need!

The client's army is called the Iron Wolves, and wanted a transfer to represent that. I took the wolf's head one from the Space Wolves sheet and did a little detail work with a brush to give it a mechanical look!

I always encourage clients getting a Valkyrie done to get the Forge World Transfer sheet to go with it. Not only does it have the nice wing transfers, but also pilot names, as well as....

...nose art! Gotta love that look!

Simple trench base to match with the DKoK. The sign is scratchbuilt, the barbed wire is twisted lengths of wire, and the base was given a touch of gloss varnish to simulate mud and muck!

The Valkyrie readies to unleash its payload...

...while the Riptide steadies for the incoming flyer!

Really enjoyed working on these, especially the Riptide! Stay tuned, as more of the Tau army should be coming down the pipeline shortly!

Next up is Malifaux, a character for an RPG, and some Mechanicus! Genghis Con is just around the corner as well, so I'll be sharing my entries for that very soon! One project is going to be a lot of fun!

Stay tuned!
