Hyperion - Orthographic by cwalton73 Hyperion - Orthographic by cwalton73
"Hyperions tower over the vanguard of Retribution forces, armed with an incomprehensibly powerful starburst weapon capable of annihilating anything in its blast. Originally designed centuries ago to protect Ios from the unspeakable threat of dragons, the power Hyperions wield is so terrible they were banned from Iosan cities and relegated to deployment along its borders. Incissar Vyros, emboldened by victory, has now overridden that order to add these most formidable Iosan constructs ever developed to the Retributionís arsenal."

Oh man, this one was a slog. The Bataan Death March of concept designs. Totally worth it in the end, though. The model came out fantastically and the paint work was spectacular - everything I originally wanted the Retribution paint scheme to be.

Oh, and for the "Dem Shouldapads" comments... what did you really expect? ;)

An awesome design! I totally agree with your notion of the paintjob on the finished model, too. The usual is painted up so cleanly, it doesn't feel "iron kingdoms". This mutha is scratched to hell and looks like it's going to tear the rear off someone.
