HERMES MkII Air Assault (4)

Hi all,

some of you may remember the armed version of my HERMES air transport.
I started this project in July 2016(!) after I completed the ATHENA.
But I never completed it.
Last week I was sitting in my office, placing the GOTHICA II and The Guardian in the display cabinets and I spotted the HERMES in its unfinished state in the cabinet.

Not sure what really sparked it, but suddenly I remembered the movie "6 Days" about the kidnapping in the Iranian Embassy in London...
So how would my Dencarian troops free a Governor?
Some may remember a very similar story for the THANATOS ( )

I decided to create a scene where the HERMES delivers a troop of special forces to free a kidnapped Governor...
Maybe in the style of the "Swift, Silent, Deadly"?
For this I first built the rooftop of the embassy

And then I went to model the first trooper.

He will be standing at the roof access door
Well, that's as far as I got.
It's a start :)

The Guardian (4)

Hi all,

another project I was finally able to complete was "The Guardian" 

After I was stuck in a deep motivation hole for a while on this project I found my Mojo and completed it :)
I hope you like it :)


Hi all,

Sorry I have neglected this blog - but posting on Facebook and in the forums is quicker and simpler and so the blog was almost forgotten. 
But I haven't forgotten you :)

Since the last update I DID finish the GOTHICA and here are the final images.
 I'm really glad I decided to do this re-paint and I'm really happy with the final outcome.
Thank you for your company along the ride.
