Heresy Era Imperial Fists - Xiphon Interceptor painting continues

Just a quick one before the weekend - managed to get a bit more done on the Xiphon over the last couple days - finished up the yellow panels, worked up the reflections in the canopy glass, and laid in the basic metallics.

I think the added yellow panels on the wings definitely helped brighten it up overall - they're also perfect places to put a nice big black and white Imperial Fist symbol. Another couple sessions and it'll be ready to take to the skies!

Fist icon will look awesome on those panels, it's like a big angry Wasp-Fist! Cool.

Dat canopy, nice work man!

I am interested to see how this comes together and how you will be mounting it on its base. Flying straight or straffing.

Lookin' good dude!

That effect on the window is sweet - looks very 1980's Heavy Metal cartoon to me.

@Siph_Horridus: Thanks man!

@CJ Kilbride: Still learning the technique, but I think this one came out pretty well!

@Rory Priest: This one's going to be straight and level, but I think for the next flyer I want to try more of an 'action pose'!

@Jugger: Cheers bud!

@Dai: Haha! You can almost hear the noodly guitar solo as it zooms past!

Cheers everyone!
