Tau XV109 Y’vahra Battlesuit - Flying base Part 2 (WIP)

Just a quick update on my XV109 Y'vahra.  The basic colour scheme is on but the question is "blue flame" or "red flame"?  For weeks now I have been convinced it was going to be a red flame, but now it's half painted, I'm airing on the side of blue.  What's your thoughts?

New New stuff from Forge World - Battlestar Galactica Viper anybody and the Stormbird WOW!

As I am a fan and a geek about all things Sci fi these two new flyers from FW blow my mind, Battlestar Galactica Vipers in 30k. sorry I mean "Space Marine Xiphon Interceptor" it blows the Stormtalon out of the water and the Stormbird, hold the phone.  I was convinced this would have been too big a project for FW to do, although having said that they did create the Tau Manta so I shouldn't be so surprised... I love it, but I thought it was supposed to hold over a 100 men????

Tau XV109 Y’vahra Battlesuit - Flying base

This is my first attempt at sculpting flames, which I am going to use as a flying base for my XV109.  As this is my first attempt it has it's problems, as in, the length of the flame coming out of the flamer is a little short, but that's due to the size of the base, I had to make do with the limited size and I didn't want to have him flying too high. and additionally and more importantly sculpting flames is hard :)

Once again I'm rekindling my love for Milliput.

I hope you like and hints and tips are welcome.
