Death from Above

After yesterday’s undercoated German village, today we can do slightly better (although only slightly) with an almost-but-not-quite-finished model. It’s painted but hasn’t had decals applied or been varnished, so it’s a bit shiny (in fact, it was still a little bit sticky when photographed !).

This is the Demeter, an 15mm VTOL used by the Eaglewing and Texians in the Hammer’s Slammers background. It’s a six piece model – three resin parts (fuselage and two wings) with metal fins and chin turret.

In addition we have a pack of weapons – two each of missile pods, tri-barrel gatlings, rocket pods and hyper-velocity missiles. They are moulded with an integral pylon so just need to be fixed to the lower wing surface (or – just to be different – try mounting the hyper-velocity missiles to the upper wing surface like a 70s-era Jaguar).

At this point, I’ll be very disappointed if you haven’t started humming ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ or at least have it going through your head – this is surely the default reaction of any self-respecting wargamer to the sight of any attack helicopter or similar aircraft…

HS15-2602 – Demeter Attack VTOL – £12.00
SF15-937 – VTOL Weapons (x8) – £2.50

Again, photos will be updated once finished !
