Long time I din't post any proper Warhammer 40K old stuff over here! Enough of that!
I have repainted my old Whirlwind Tank. It hadn't seen a brush since I first painted it, and that maybe was in 1995? 1996? Whenever it was released.
I never was a Warhammer Red Era guy back in time (if you are unfamiliar with the term, I'm referring to thet period when the Games Workshop Studio begun to paint bright red details -or more than details- all over. Every single model had a touch of red). Though I painted some things in red, as everybody was doing then, red weapons always were too much for me. Never, never could stand that.
But anyway, enough chitchat! Here is my Whirlwind with no red on it!
|Basic blue and basic highlights|
|Looks like I'm in my own White Era|
The blue/white combination looks more appealing to me. I have tried it before on other Ultramarines and it's not that bad. I thought of leaving the rocket launchers in black, but I believe that white gives them that 'Oldschool' vibe without being thaaaat flashy.
|That's it, with all the tiny details|
You probably won't be able to spot it, but I painted an Eagle on the front, the Armoured Vehicle badge, you know, the Eagle with the lightnings.
|And the usual 'cave pedes' (watch your step) signs under every door|
Just an easy refreshing blue tank to keep straight on my way. I still have tons of blue guys awaiting to be put in line ready for duty again, let's hope I go on them sometime soon...
