here is a shot of the 5 in their current state.
I still have to add the back claw and maybe add some deffinition to the top of the claw but I think they look pretty close to how I want them to look. I also added a blade to the end of one because it had a piece broken off. I like it som I am going to keep it.
For a first try I am happy. I have a couple of other things I might want to try. The first is create a fan on the tail for kind of like a rudder. The second is giving them a longer neck so that when in horizontal flight they are not staring at the ground. I think these would be big improvements to the overall feel of the model. Of coarse the bases need some sprucing up as well but that is just finishing touches.
I will be at the shop tonight and I will finally not have to proxy warriors as shrikes. This alone makes me happy. Next time I will get better pictures. My next update will see a finished squad. Once that is done I will go back and work on improving them.
Let me know what you think.
