Thanks guys. I really appreciate the feedback. I was thinking of drybrushing the bottom of the tank bleached bone/skull white. What do you think?

Actually, I'd think about painting the lower hull to match the magma lines of the upper hull, kinda giving the impression that the plates are 'floating'.

Oh yes I like Hespithe's idea. It will look awsome.

Your magma is really nice i can really see the heat of it. If I saw that sort of thing charging the feild at me I would be running as fast as I can in the other direction.

I've decided to hold off on finishing the tank for the moment, and bring the unit it carries up to the same level.

I still have the Spirit stones to finish, as well as to get the highlighting done on the armor plates and re-touch up the black parts.

For now. Enjoy the lethal tank killing squad that is Fire Dragons, and Wave Serpent with Brightlances.

That looks hot, literaly.

One thing I would say I 'm not sure if its because of the distance or not is just make the eyes a little clearer. But otherwise get me my sunscreen.

I like the effect on the Fire Dragons and the Avatar but I have to admit, I am not a fan of it on the tank. Having it in all the cracks like that just gives it a heavy Tron look (and yes I just revealed my age to all and sundry). In the vents it looks fine but I don't think it suits the tank to have it in the lines. Not trying to put it down, it looks well done for sure, but it isn't quite right looking to me.

My 2 cents.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
