They look great!  Very clean.  Can never have enough Jade Falcons around.  Thank you for sharing!

  • White spray primer.
  • Based coated with Army Painter Greenskin.
  • Covered with GW Army Painter Military Shader.
  • Panels cleaned up using Army Painter Greenskin, then edge highlighted Army Painter Goblin Green.
  • Metal bits covered with Army Painter Gun Metal, then washed with GW Nuln Oil Gloss, some edge highlighting with Army Painter Shining Silver.
  • Cockpit glass and laser is based coated with Army Painter Shining Silver, followed by GW Soulstone Blue, Waystone Green, or Spiritstone Red.
  • Base painted black, then added some GW Agrellan Badland, washed with a bit of Agrax Earthshade, dry brushed with some AP Skeleton Bone, and then added some tufts (trimmed down a bit).

I attempted some cockpit jeweling on the Fire Falcon and Black Lanner, but didn't on the Viper, Mist Lynx, and Fire Moth.  I may go back and make a second pass later on the jeweling for those, I just wanted these done.;D

Superb!
"Well, I do, Marcus, and rule number one of the MAC has always been that the man with the plan leads. If we get shot up, I'm the first one to get my ticket punched. There are no flags in the MAC."
"And there never will be," Barton said, nodding his head in agreement.

"You guys are facing a freaking Shadow Division! These guys have strict policies against playing fair!"

"I don’t care. Kill them. I planned the defense so I know it will work. If they claim otherwise, they’re cowards. Any step back is a betrayal of me, and saying they don’t have enough men is just an excuse for incompetence and disloyalty. Tell the Krypteia to do it if you’re too soft but get it done." -Emperor Stefan Ukris Amaris I
