Hello everyone,

It’s 5am here and I’m about to jump on a plane to head up to Cairns for the weekend for some gaming and hanging out with some friends.  Before I leave, I just wanted to a quick post on some new flyers I painted up recently.  The Arvis Lighter is possibly one of my favourite flyers (and even minis) in the FW range.  I really love is simple utility and lack of weapons.  It honest.  Now that you can take them as a transport option for a Solar Auxiliar army in 30k I expect to see quite a few more of them floating around.  This one I added a magnatised lascannon to it, for just a bit of offensive capability.

As you can see (like all of my flyers) I’ve replaced the GW/FW flight stand with some clear acrylic rod.  Why GW ever went with that bizarre-o flight stand they provide with their flyers is beyond me.  It lacks elegance, aesthetic and utility.  Every time I think about it (like now) I find myself subconsciously shaking my head.

The Imperial Thunderbolt Heavy Fighter.  What an impressive model.  I real modellers model actually.  So many cool little options and hidden details.  I can see why it was the subject of a diorama build in the Master Class book II.  Not only was it a please to build, but also to paint.  It also really packs a punch on the table too.

Ok, thats it for me.  I’ve got a plane to catch.

I’ve still got a few more posts up my sleeve, so stay tuned.

Take care, bye for now.
