Land Raider Crusader WIP: Free Hand Angels Wings

I Feeling a bit improved from my sickness, I set to work painting. Inspired and empowered by Ron's work on From the Warp, I planned to apply some freehand to the top of my Land Raider Crusader.

The only thing better than delivering a large and deadly unit of Assault Terminators into the heart of an opposing force is delivering a large and deadly unit of Assault Terminators into the heart of the opposing force in style.

I used the self-made transfer technique which Ron shared with us. It worked perfectly.
-I picked out some Blood Angel Iconography from the Codex.
-I drew it on a piece of paper which I had measured and cut to the exact size of the space I wanted it to appear on the tank. I also drew a mirrored image.
-I turned the paper over and shaded the back with the edge of the pencil.
-I turned the paper back over, held it in place on the tank, and traced over with a ball point pen the image which I had drawn previously.
-The pencil shading from the back of the paper transferred the image I drew onto the surface of the tank.
-All that was left was to paint it.

It worked like a charm. I decided mid project to eliminate the blood chalices from the images. So, I have to decide how to finish the images off. Nevertheless, they are off to ta great start.

That looks great! I bet you never thought it would be this easy to get great looking freehand on your vehicles.

Seriously.

I instantly started wondering if I could put something on the sides!!

I have been highlighting and painting skulls and such on it. So, I may still add something on the sides.
