I’ve added some more Panzerfäuste Spitfyre concepts to my miniatures concepts gallery, I don’t think these were created as miniatures unfortunately as I quite enjoyed creating them. They’re 100% digital, a mix of Photoshop, Manga Studio and Painter.
They all can be seen on my Miniatures Concepts page under Panzerfäuste. [Miniatures Concepts]
This is a Gnome Pigeon de Guerre which, despite looking just like a huge pigeon was based on the Potez 630 aeroplane used by the French in WW2. Wikipedia entry for Potez 630
Hello! I’ve realised that I hadn’t posted all of my Spitfyre concepts on this website, so here are a few more of my Spitfyre images I produced late last year and earlier this year. The Gnomes get a giant falcon (roughly the size of a Bloch mb 150) with pennants and helmet painted in the Escadrille (squadron) colour.
For the Dwarves; a vulture bomber that acts dive bombs like the German WWII Junkers 87 Stuka and the massive Kampfkondor 111; a giant condor bomber based on the Heinkel.
I’ve grouped them all on my Miniatures Concepts page under Panzerfäuste. [Miniatures Concepts]
It’s been quiet on this website but that doesn’t mean I’ve not been working away. Here are some images I created for Hysterical Games’ Panzerfäuste Spitfyre game. This is a wargame of aerial combat in their ‘historo-fantasy’ world.
As a 10mm wargame the miniatures would need to be easily identifiable from the basic shape and size. So I found some WWII spotterguides online and enlarged the silhouettes of the Spitfire and Messerschmitt 109 aircraft so that they were all the same scale to work on.
Then I scaled a plan view of the planes to each and proceeded to digitally paint (on a layer above) the creatures in top down view, keeping the pilots and machine guns on separate layers. I used these as guides only, for the fantastical creatures like the Orc wyverns I could tweak the wing shapes quite closely to the aircraft but for the giant creatures I’d need to keep the proportions similar to their real-world counterparts.
Here’s the Orc Hurrikane air-beast:
