Flames of war - airplane special

So, I bought these planes for FoW really quite early on in my playing days. I just never got around to painting them.  Perhaps it was the fact that there were three planes in the packs and I couldn't face it.  Perhaps it was the fact that they were notoriously bad at taking paint as apparently battlefront used a different resin for them to that they used for their tanks. Or perhaps it was my massive paint queue :)

Anyway, they live right at the top of my storage boxes and so always appeared when I played to shame me (I keep my other unpainted stuff as close to the bottom as I can to avoid this) so I decided to just get on with it as the new FoW rules mean you only need one plane to represent the flight on the tabletop.

So here they are, a Stuka, an HS-129B3 (with the MASSIVE GUN) and a shturmovik. Now I just need to resist the urge to tie invisible thread around them and hang them from my ceiling :)

Yup! Finished another Eldar flyer.

I'm not especially happy with how the custom transfers came out as the decal melty stuff seems to have left bubbles and a touch of misting. Oh hum. The ones at the front on the red are the most obvious and they look okay so I'm not going to be too upset about it.

Just the base to do now!

For the Eldar I still have a unit of lovely Shadow Spectres (thanks guys!), a wraithseer, a wraightknight, a fire prism, and some guardians and some Dire Avengers to do. So quite a bit left to do then.
