like it. two thumbs up.

I do agree with the wraithlord about the blood, never seems to come off as believable to me on any model.

I'm always a little wary about doing digital camo patterns...i've attempted it a few times, its just i've never been able to get the pattern small enough. I covered the "blood" in a gloss varnish, to make it stand out a bit.

once its based, you will be able to tell the fresh kill is what i was going for.

shoulder guards took me a while to decide on. I simulated the "X" for tenth company in that banner style with the word "Iron" written into it.

You've hit the nail on the head with the base. Thats exactly what i wanted to do. maybe some fleks of blood on the ground around it, pooled slightly. perhaps some fleks on the gloves? and pant leg?

Really good job on the camo Ploss looks great, again agree about the blood on the sword but will keep an eye on this to see him on the base as a good base always brings a mini to together +rep

Drill out the gun barrel!

Okay now that I got my pet peeve out of the way. I really like what you did with the camo. It will be interesting to see a marine done up. I think if the knife was black or dark grey the fresh blood migh work better. I figure this guy is a verteran so he should have the special ops black blade knives. I don't think you would want to many shinny things around orks when you are trying not to be noticed.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

i don't have a drill for that size, otherwise i would.

Okay now that i got my pet peeve out of the way. thanks for the comment on the camo. it was something that i had wanted to do for a while. The blade, is more like a sword, combat blade, so its quite big...i wish it was a little smaller, that would look good in black. Although i'm thinking about adding a sheath to his back or belt, so if the blade is normally sheathed...perhaps silver isn't too bad?

I'm going to be revisiting this camo scheme, so i'm just looking to get more opinions on the mini.

Thanks

not bad man, though I'm a little let down.. I was expecting to see a bunch of quido "Jersey Shore" kinda boys with diamonds in their ears, around their necks and on their fingers... airbrushed tans, flat brimmed hats on sideways.... not a nicely painted model!! I do agree with wraithlord, the blood is a little gimmickey...

That model is sick man. I love the face especially, as it ties in with the background you mentioned very well. Perhaps he lost his jaw in a brawl with a warboss or something? Any way you slice it, fighting orks for a hundred years will wear on the body! The only thing I think might be a little better was swapping black for the white outline on his shoulder cap(s). I mean, white on your shoulders may prove problematic when sneaking around the jungle crumpin' orks. Regardless, great job!

BTW-Are you doing a whole army with this scheme, or just a scout squad or what? I think that a squad of these guys with a land speeder similarly painted would really look badass.
