Astral Claws Drop Pod

I’ve finally finished my Astral Claws drop pod. This has been quite a time consuming project, partly because of the size of the kit and partly because of the number of sub-assemblies required to paint the kit while still allowing access to interior details and other hard to get to parts.

Initially I was worried that the model would look too silver but i think the blue stripe breaks this up nicely and matches the Forge World artwork. The weathering also adds an extra dimension of detail to the large, flat areas and makes them more interesting. Overall, this has been a very enjoyable and rewarding project and it was very satisfying to glue together the various sub-assemblies and finally see the finished result.

    Exceptional work as usual Andy, nice to still see some quality painting long after I stopped getting my fix from White Dwarf 🙂 Have you ever considered the Forge World models of the Primarchs from the Horus Heresy series? I am currently making my way through the novels and I would love to one day see your depictions of these exemplars/mockeries of Humanity!

    Thanks, Nick.

    I may paint a Primarch at some point, they are really lovely models. I just need to find the time.
