How to paint the Valk?
I've also finished magnetizing my Valkyrie. Used the left over Land Raider LasCannon sponsons from a Land Raider Crusader box that allows me to convert the Valkyrie to a Vendetta should I want to. Trouble is I'm kind of stumped as to paint it up as. I've got some ideas running though my head and I just wanted to run them by the followers for input.
To me the Valkyrie doesn't really fit with the Sniper Vet themed army. So I'm figuring Sharpe requisitioned one outside of the normal supply chain. Why does this matter? Well it lets me be more flexible with the paint scheme. Before I get into the various ideas, some back story on Sharpe and the 95th that might be relevant. On of my favorite of the Sharpe movies is Sharpe's Eagle. A British Major dies and losses the Kings colors (Flag) to some French Calvary. He was just following the poor orders of his Colonel, but anyway. As he is dieing in Sharpe's arms, he asks Sharpe to get him a French Eagle (Aigle de drapeau). So Sharpe later in the show storms through a French line as it is disrupted by some line fire, and gets the Eagle.
So here are the Ideas I have had in no particular order.
6) ME 262 Paint scheme. Just cause of all the aircraft paint schemes I've ever seen, I've liked this one the best.
I'll be making a poll over on the right, feel free to vote there, and if you want leave your comments below.
