First Bat done... pretty simple scheme over all... Black basecoat, then a heavy drybrush of Stormvermin Fur. Wing sections are Mournfang Brown with a wash of Secret Weapons "Red Tone". Nothing amazing... these are "chaff units" for the VC.. At 40pts for 2 you throw them out there to disrupt the enemy and they don't need to be beautiful to get the job done.



Here's all 5 with the wings base coated... I switched off Mournfang Brown for Vallejo Beasty Brown as it's a tad lighter which gives the red tone better contrast and provides more fake definition via the wash. :)



Freshly washed and detailed (not much of that on these) bats waiting to get their bases prepped. These are right before I slathered them in Gloss coat to protect the metal and keep it from chipping.



Heavy slather of gloss coat followed by an application of matte sealer, some wash on the bases and some grass tufts and these guys are ready for action. I need to do another minor pass on the base edges with Rhinox Hide Brown to touch them up, but they' basically done. Waiting on the glue to dry at the stand attachment points... 1/8" brass rod sunk into the body of the bats. I hate flying stands!

It's Prime time...

My goal is to knock all of these out this weekend. I'll probably miss that goal by a mile, but I'm going to try it. Helps that it's a holiday weekend!

Ugly gits for sure.

Technically done... I need to do the basing, and a few other minor things (one of the banners is missing a top bar), but technically... it's mission accomplished!



Like any great success... this can only truly be celebrated with a banner and an aircraft carrier!
