While a busy month has kept me away from the computer, I have nonetheless continued to work through my WIP mountain of lead and resin. Last month I posted an update and progress on my Air Cav Aerorifle hueys (here).
This post is to show the 99% complete on my Air Cav helos...these little beauties took me some time but in the end I really like how they turned out. I've got a great variety of assets and firepower for my Air Cavalry Troop and when I paint enough boots on the ground I can turn this into a rifle company with some outstanding air support.
All that is left is to get some of the new plastic rotors and finish those up...otherwise, the helos are done. I am in the process of painting up the blues and have finished 2 of 10 stands of infantry...
Enjoy the pics. Take care.
The entire team...
White Scouts on the back left and right, Red Hogs between them, Cobra gunships for later war period and flying artillery support, the Blue Hueys front and centre, and a Command and Control helo OR Medevac if needed.
C & C bird or Medevac...my plan is to build some markers for the flight stand to designate either
The Aerorifle Blues...taking the fight to the enemy...you still need boots to hold ground.
The Red Aeroweapons or flying artillery...Cobra gunships to deal a high dose of pain to the badguys.
Gatling gun Cobra
I've been stuck for how to store this crew...the cost of shipping a custom battlefoam try is at least twice the cost of the tray itself...so, for about $7 Cdn, I went to Michaels and bought a scrapbook container for $3 on sale...and some Gorilla glue and took a bunch of old BF foam as well as Miniatures in Comfort foam and built my own carrying 'tray'...a little caveman but it works.
