Black Templars 'Eisen-Falken' class Gunship
2nd Mercadian Crusade livery
Finally got some photos done of this project finished.
Lots of conversion detailing and weathering on the GW Stormraven kit.
I have renamed this pattern as an 'Eisen-Falken' Gunship.
Seemed far more Black Templar.
She was blessed by Master of Sanctity Ravenstein as
'The Angel of Antioch'
I tried lots of various weathering techniques,
oil streaks, grubby engines and battle grime.
Forgeworld razorback turret and resin BT rhino door
fitted without too much bother. They fit quite snugly.
Brass etch BT icons and carving up BT landraider doors gave
me lots of options for embellishing the hull and fuselage.
She carrys a hefty payload of ordnance..
I decided to undersling the assault cannons because..
it just looks intimidating I think.
I used heavy bolter magazines behind the barrels
of the cannons to give them a more robust look.
Of course, when things get serious...
a red light comes on in the cockpit to warn the
pilot of incoming missiles and anti air flak.
All the doors, sponson weapons and canopy move/open/close/swivel about.
The servo skulls make an appearance on some of the weapon systems.
The one on top is known as 66 or 'Double-Sixer'.
Well, it was a big project and I learned a lot of things
during the process.
