It’s been a while since I’ve painted any Dropzone Commander. I’ve heard good things about the Ferrum. Well, good things from UCM players. Others seem kind of grumpy sometimes. There was talk of a Famous Commander game day at Endgame, so I figured I’d get the Luciana Cato version of the Ferrum, which could be played either way.
This model is so long that it’s awkward to frame in the Spinomatic.
When I opened the package, it was missing the track bits! I contacted support, and Hawk sent out replacements in a reasonable amount of time. I briefly considered temping in some Sabre chassis, but the turret hole doesn’t match, so I decided to just wait.
The drones thin little single-piece resin models. I took the easy way out for the cockpit blister. Just drybrushing. It doesn’t look as good as a smooth highlight, but it was fast and looks nice enough.
