I like that finish a lot. Very SW, no fancy stuff. Just grey tones and the bones. And some subtle details. Have some rep.

Very nice mate, love the tone of grey you've gone for and the green gems pop brilliantly.

If you were looking for any C&C, the pelt seems a little flat, and the hazard stripes are a bit wobbly which instantly draws the eye.

There's no doubt it's a fine paint job though, which does a very cool model justice.

Thanks, that means a lot. Considering I found it extremely hard to finish this model off, I'm happy with how it turned out.

I was seriously hung over painting them yesterday. I'm surprised they're as straight as they are. I'll probably go back later and straighten them up. The fur actually looks better up close, the lighting seems to have washed it out a bit.
