It's been almost a month since I finished the coach and, while it had a substantial appearance in the Resurrection narrative, I hadn't taken any proper gallery photos of the model. So here we go:
First off, this model is HUGE. I took some side-by-side photos with the old black coach just for comparison. The dragon wings and skull that I added to mine help add to its presence. I think without them, it would look even smaller next to this behemoth.
I'm really pleased with how the whole project turned out. As intimidating as it seemed at first, the painting went pretty smoothly– Basically the wood and metal of the coach itself; the ghostly white of the relic bearers; and the horses which are just black, bone, and ghostly white. There were a few other details throughout, but those were actually a nice break from the grind. Lots of sub-assemblies, though.
The custom relics are my favorite addition. You can see my process for converting them in these posts:
It was fun coming up with a backstory for the driver. I had initially built and painted him with the whip in his hand, but after settling on his character, I added the shackles and gave him an outstretched hand to look as though he's accepting his payment (or bribe).
