These are resin models produced by Forgeworld and as such constitute two firsts for me:
- My first experiments with resin,
- My first airbrushed vehicle.
Tetras are a fast-attack option, much like piranhas but are only armed with twin-linked pulse rifles and a markerlight. They are piloted by pathfinders.
Now these are a long way from being finished and the photos below are a bit haphazard (please forgive me for that) but I'm enjoying working on them so much and so pleased by the results so far that I thought I'd share them.
A lot of the colour hasn't come out too well in the photos - I'll try and do better for the finished articles.
|These are the three chassis for the Tetra squadron. Apart from some brush-work to pick up the console details, they're pretty much done.|
|Here's a shot with the pilots and carapace resting in place, on a base. Obviously the pilots don't yet have arms and the engines need doing.|
|And the same model from the front. The white carapace isn't going to stay white - my intention is to stencil a digital camo effect on it.|
