Hot stuff – Painting the Storm Raven
The red blob known as my Storm Hawk finally got some treatment this weekend.
I’ve trawled the Internets for guides or examples of heat damage for aircraft with no joy. NASA craft are built in such a way (and expense) that atmospheric re-entry does not leave them in the mess that I intend to portray with my bird.
The grimdark environments of the Warhammer universe clearly call from some weathering and grit. Continued exposure to alien atmospheres, high temperatures, superheated particles and enemy fire must surely have its ware on paint and platework, even with heat resistant materials.
And so, I kinda made it up as I went along!
I think I shall call upon Dave Taylor‘s inspiration once more and plonk a large freehand star on the bodywork.
