BAM, Dust and Tamiya

Well now, getting back into minis…

Mix Bag of Talon, Tank and Death From Above

Kotobukiya thrusters. Took a while to find the right thrusters as there isn’t much clearance to fit big thrusters.

Still need to work on another 4 of these (!). I’m not exactly looking forward to this…

Moving on… Work on the Talon progressed. Both hurricane bolters are up but not fully assembled:
Hmm. Looks a bit over the top. Still, side view:
Still need to add the stasis cannon and bomb.. Detailing, structure mounts.. Hmm tight package.

Finally, a recent addition to my Dust stuff:
I quite like the look and feel of this; might pick up another. Working out an army that utilizes this, hopefully can see it in action!
