Finished Deathstrike Missile Launcher Conversion: Skyrangers XXII

Last weekend I put the finishing touches to my plastic Deathstrike Missile Launcher.

The urban 'dazzle' style pattern on the launcher was completed by jagged strips of Chaos Black, like all my vehicles and aircraft.

The Deathstike Missile itself was given another coat of Skull White to make it smoother than its original spray-painted state.

I applied 5 transfers from the Imperial Guard vehicle transfer sheet to add some detail to the Deathstrike Missile, the Aquilae and some serial numbers. I didn't want to go overboard with details as I preferred the simplicity of the white missile.

Lastly I painted the Earthshaker Gun in the same colours as the Launcher. For the most part I will use the vehicle as a Basilisk but I always have the option for the Deathstrike Missile Launcher, if I feel a bit mad... :)
As always, C&C greatly welcome!


  1. Hi! Nicely done man!

    One comment I would like to add is maybe you could put some Badab Black on the crevices of the missile? Haha, to me it looked unpainted because it was a single colour. So maybe the shadowing will help a little?

    Pretty nifty conversion though. :D

  2. Hi Alvin, thanks for the advice!
    I actually have Badab Black, luckily enough, so I will give that a go.

    Good idea, again, thanks!

  3. Wow that model it's amazing, that one are for collection, anyway I gues that cannot be purchased at google anwyay or any other store.
