This is my Epic Mk1 Thunderhawk also know as the thunderbrick. I have to say i have a soft spot for the Mk1, i don't really know why, i just do. To look at it, it is not a very attractive model, and aerodynamically it sucks. Maybe that's it, it is so ugly that you can't help but like it.
I find it funny when i am looking at the storm eagle and storm raven that there is more than a passing resemblance with the good old MK1.
The Mk1 is the only epic model i can think off that didn't have a cockpit. I never understood that.
maybe it was meant to be some kind of drone or something? anyway i made it one with some greenstuff. Not bad really as it was my first attempt at using greenstuff other than as filler.
Painting it was a lot of fun, i used blue grey as a base coat, then i mixed space wolve grey in as the first stage highlight them pure space wolve grey as the final highlight on all raised areas. I tried for the first time something a bit different and had a go at engine glow. I think it turned out ok but it would have looked a lot better if it was red or orange. "Next time Gadget"
