Tzeentch Doomwing - Project Change XVII

Another foray with the teeny-tiny aircraft. I think it's because I saw Top Gun recently.

Doom Wing - Daemon Engine of Tzeentch

The Doomwing was one of the three Dave Andrews Tzeentch-specific Daemon Engines released in March 1993 - the other two being the Fire Lord and the Silver Tower. The concept of welding technology and warp creature together was never introduced properly into 40K-scale until a decade later with the plastic Defiler kit in 2003.

The Doom Wing was a small interceptor armed with a Flame Cannon. Quite how it shot down other aircraft using forward-firing gouts of fire puzzles me, but both fire and flight are Tzeentch's trademarks. It also carries over the horse skull vibe from the earlier Tzeentch-aligned 40K and Fantasy models.

The colour scheme was inspired by the cover artwork for Queen Rocks.

It would have been perhaps more fitting for the larger Fire Lord model which has more flat surfaces to have fun blending, and also the word "fire" in its name. Oops.

Well, it's no cheese falcon, but the paint job's pretty sweet. I particularly like the highlights on the orange and the shading on the skull. How long would you say it took to paint this?

Well, as I approach lots of models simultaneously it's difficult to say. While I was doing this I was also picking at a Zoat, a dragon, several more Horrors and another Harpy, on and off. But, rough guess perhaps two or three solid hours?

Very nice! I wish Forge World or GW would make large scale versions of these for use in APOCALYPSE.

Amen brother. I converted up my own many years back out of a Batman Begins toy. It had gorgeous translucent blue wings airbrushed with flecks of gold.
