5 DOWN 15 TO GO!!! :nice:
Completed my Marker Drone's using the Paulson Games' Mecha Heads, think they look very unique and weren't nearly as expensive as full GW ones. Now if only I can get the other 15 painted alongside the Riptide, 3 Broadsides, Ghostkeel and Commander before the 23rd of June! :::(

By the way started painting my commander and I'm wondering about 2 things; 1) Does it really need the sensor arms? 2) Where should I paint the orange detailing to tie it better to the Crisis Drones? :neutral:

I like your army a lot and appreciate ALL of the work you're putting into it!! WOW!!!

As for your commander. Keep your sensor arrays. Think of them as the command link to all of the drones that he/it is controlling and the distance that it needs to communicate it's orders.

One querstion...and you may have answered this already, please forgive me if you have, but where on earth did you get all of the drones from!!? And the designs, yours or purchased? Some of those designs are fantastic! (They are all cool....Hopefully you know what I mean) :-)

ESTABLISHING BATTLEFIELD CONTROL!
Well my Command Drone is now up and running, I made two small missile pod drones to represent it's weapons otherwise it will be a simple Buffmander.
I'm glad I decided to ditch the small sensor arms during painting, this feels a more drone like, after all the command drone is nothing more than a master hub for the army's Drone Network.

Next up the Tank Drone (Riptide). :smile:

HEAVY HITTER!
The most powerful drone has now been added to the Kor'vesa Initiative's arsenal; The Tank Drone (Riptide). Escorted by a Repair Drone to represent it's FNP, modelled after the Builder Drones from DOW Dark Crusade. I've also added some snow to the base to help blend the ice and rocks together and cover up the areas where the crackling paint hadn't worked so well. What do you think to the snow effect on the base?

This concept is beyond awesome. What are the heads in the Support Drones that go with the Stealth Drone? They look pretty amazing but I can't place those bits. Almost looks like you used a simple peg for the central eye. Brilliant!

It's the targeting scope of a Broadside HYMP, had a few left over when I cut them off for the Broadside drones.

Very well executed theme! Loving that dx18 stealth drone! How long does each conversion usually take you?

Overall your work just inspires me. Have you thought about being able to swap weapons on the dx18 or even the dx12

Speaking of my Ghostkeel Drone, I've now moved on to start painting the DX-18 Stealth Striker. :D

Problem is I'm looking for suggestions and feedback as I'm can't decide how to go about painting the detailing. Should I try and keep it stealthy with greys and dark blues as with the bare minimum white and orange. Or paint it in similar fashion to the other drones with White detailing with a bit of Orange here and there? :?
