More WIP Thunderbolt
Hey everyone, welcome to another WIP Thunderbolt post. Hopefully I will have it finished in the next week as I have finalised what all the freehand will be so it's just a matter of painting it now.
Apologies for a post with few words, but the pictures say plenty and it'll give me more time for painting!
The following free hands are my initial outlines and will be detailed and neatened up as soon as I get the chance.
The callsign for the pilot is "Rook" and consequently the Rook chess piece is his logo. The pilot himself is Lt. Corvus.
I'm thinking the 219 could be the squadron.
In keeping with the chess theme his helmet is black and white checks. The same patter is on both sides of the nose.
The shield logo has a small IV in the top right hand corner and the shield has a lightning bolt motif. This is the squadron badge perhaps or campaign badge or something like that. The marks on the cockpit are kill markings
The base has been properly textures and has relief so it isn't just sat on a fat piece of ground. I think it looks much better.
The corpse has been weathered and burnt and I'm also much happier with the red and khaki now too.
A good view of the uneven ground and skeletal grimace of the unfortunate crewman.
I can't wait to get this finished! Thanks for looking and all of your comments up till now, I really appreciate the input!
