Hippogriff Aerodynes

After wrapping up the unit of French Lancers (see previous post!) I wanted to do something in 15mm just for a bit of a change.  I had a couple of the Hippogriff Aerodynes from Darkest Star Games.  One is for my buddy Darby, and the other one I bought for myself.  These were a little frustrating to assemble, but once they were completed I think they look pretty neat!

He plans to use his in a more anime-esque style game with special police/military units fighting foes with nefarious plans. Think "Ghost in the Shell" or "Appleseed" for a general idea of his plans. So I painted it with the shiny dark colors.  I didn't put any decals or markings on his so he could do whatever he wants with it.

As for mine, I wanted something that would pass for a well used civilian version that will be seen at my little colony on the fringe of the civilized universe.  After taking the pictures, it came out looking a little more "dirty" than I anticipated, but I kinda like it.  Folks don't have as much money and time for repairs like they do in the more prosperous cities.  The main thing is to keep the thing flying no matter how beat-up it looks!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend friends!
