Finished on time, for once!

I painted it in seven sub-assemblies; the hull, the two crew, the turret, the trigger assembly, and the two Stormshard Mortars.  I think I’d have gone crazy trying to paint it fully assembled!

Also, this was the first time that I painted one of my Astra Militarum units using the current range of GW paints.  I was initially worried that the new ones wouldn’t match the old range but I’ve been pleasantly surprised.  Plus, and this is heresy I know, but after painting this I think I prefer Agrax Earthshade to Devlan Mud…

Finally, why did I start my Wyvern Squadron with the number 2 gun?  I originally was going to make this the command unit but I couldn’t find enough parts to make a gunnery officer in my Bitz Box.  Never mind, my birthday’s coming up and I expect to bulk out my guard’s fire support very soon.

    Fantastic job mate. I love the internal details and the crew.
