I built this model 4 years ago for use in Warhammer 40K Apocalypse. The ironic thing is I never got the chance to use it. At 700 pts empty, it was just too over the top for my eldar armies. My interests have moved on since but I still have the Vampire. I used a paper model downloaded from BWC archive group as a template and substituted foam core and pink insulation for the inside structure. The skin is two layers of plasticard, an underlying layer as a base and then the "armor" plating on top. I sacrificed an eldar tank turret of the pilot and the top of a Vyper for the backwards facing cockpit. The jewels are cast from plaster and painted as gems. This is where I made one of the best modeling "tricks" I've learned. If you can't paint gems in a believable fashion like me. The way I fake it is ..... clear fingernail polish. It turns the surface into glass with reflections just like a real gem. This also works for patent leather coats on your mini's or a slimy sheen on your goo-dripping aliens. I've found the more surface detail you place, the better the model looks. Anyway as my "second" post ever, I present the Eldar Vampire bomber. The actual model dimensions are 15" wide x 14" long X 8" high.
